Memorial Day is right around the corner and one of the things I like to do over the weekend is to watch my share of war films. It is Memorial Day, right? TNT and other cable channels will show different war films all weekend. Here are five of my favorite World War Two films. I chose World War Two because there are so many good ones out there. Do you agree with my choices? Which would you choose over the ones I have picked? I was going to include Band of Brothers, but it is a mini-series and doesn't fall into this type of list, but I highly recommend that one if you haven't see it. Enjoy the list. Read more...

The other day I wrote about my five favorite historical World War Two movies. While that list only touched upon movies that tried to re-tell history, I thought a list of fictional fighting films was needed. There are just too many great flicks about WW2, so here is my list of fictional films of adventure that were made about the war. Please feel free to add your own films to the list. There are dozens of others.
Saving Private Ryan ($216 million)
Armageddon ($201 million)
There’s Something About Mary ($176 million)
A Bug’s Life ($162 million)
The Waterboy ($161 million)
