Our troops have long been one of Hollywood's favorite subjects, and what better day to take a look at some of the greatest war movies ever made than this one, a day when we stop to reflect on those who've made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of Freedom.
Here's to the Heroes.
Ahhh, Glory. Just seeing the poster from the film gives me goose bumps.... Director Edward Zwick's retelling of the first all-black platoon called to active duty in the Civil War was one of the first movies I ever remember being truly riveted by. And incredible story of the human spirit vs. the human condition, a young Denzel opposite Morgan Freeman, and a baby faced Matthew Broderick make this movie unforgettable.
