What is the best film about the U.S. military?
The Springfield News-Sun posits the question, "What is the best film ever made about the U.S. military?" and gets some interesting results. Personally I find it telling that most of the answers are more-or-less recent films....
So what's your answer? Here's a few of theirs....
STEVE BILLINGSLEY, Fairborn: “It would be ‘Saving Private Ryan’ and ‘Glory,’ the Civil War movie.”
ALAKYA MATHANKERI, Kettering: “’Pearl Harbor.’ It just hit home because of the stuff we saw when we were in Hawaii. It was emotional, because the events took place in the States.”
LYNN SCHUTTE, Miamisburg: “’Patton.’ For the story line, and because George C. Scott was a great actor. It showed the life of a general and his shortcomings, as well as his attributes.”
