Veterans Day 2011 War Movies on TV
That time again! Time to thank those who served our country and remember those who didn’t make it back. This year 11/11 falls on a Friday, so there should be some good marathons going on.
The Fox Movie Channel steps up with an entire page outlining their contribution! Titles include: Stars and Stripes Forever, The Desert Fox, Destination Gobi, House of Bamboo, A Farewell to Arms, and Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison….
AMC looks to have theirs already going, with Defiance already underway, Spy Game, U-571… followed the rest of the weekend by: Tora! Tora! Tora!, We Were Soldiers, and Apocalypse Now Redux on Friday. Keep in mind AMC edits for content and screen, and has commercials.
TNT will once again not be doing the Saving Private Ryan thing. Shame. One night a year, is that really too much to ask? Sure its 13 years old already, but throw that uninterrupted unedited tribute out there once and a while!
The History Channel gets its act together, and has the yet-to-be released on disc Vietnam in HD. For once I actually wish I still had satellite!!
And of course, Turner Classic turns it out again this year, but only on Friday. Too many to list them all, but here’s a few highlights: A Walk in the Sun, Never So Few, God is my Co-Pilot, the Fighting 69th.
…and HBO looks to be running The Pacific on HBO2 and Signature….
If I missed anything, please be sure to leave corrections and additions in the comments!
