What counts as a military movie?
In my opinion, anything that has a military topic, or a war as the centerpiece of the story. Ancient warfare, modern warfare, The Cold War, peace time movies that focus on the military, documentaries, comedies, dramas, foreign language films, you name it – if it focuses on the military or a war, it’s good to go. We will draw the line at science fiction (sorry Star Wars fans!), and action movies (Example, Bourne Identity and sequels would not qualify).
Here are a few categories ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
- Ancient Wars
- American Revolution
- American Civil War
- World War I
- World War II (European and Pacific theaters)
- Korean War
- Cold War
- Iraq, Afghanistan, and Middle Eastern Conflicts
- Worst War Movies Ever!
