There aren’t enough good Revolutionary War movies. I guess muskets and powdered wigs aren’t that exciting. The Patriot thankfully is light on the wigs and heavy on Mel Gibson hurling axes at redcoats.

The movie is also the only Roland Emmerich film that isn’t two hours of CGI nonsense.
Full Metal Jacket
Full Metal Jacket is a great movie for both Veterans Day and Memorial Day. A satirical and unflinching look at the Vietnam War and the costs of it at home and abroad.

Based on a true story and book, The Outpost tells the stories of American soldiers in Afghanistan during the Battle of Kamdesh. A story of survival, sacrifice, and grit. The Outpost is about a group of pinned-down soldiers overcoming the odds to beat back the Taliban and protect a remote American outpost.
Da Five Bloods
A story that examines the Vietnam War through veterans who return to the jungle to find a buried treasure and the remains of a fallen friend. You might think this is a comedy and thriller but instead, we get a meditative film on the trauma of war, the guilt and trauma of surviving war, and what it is like to return to a country that doesn’t respect you for your service.
It was also one of the final films starring Chadwick Boseman.
If you haven’t seen Da five Bloods it’s Chadwick Bosemans latest film. A fantastic last performance (as of now). RIP stormin Normin. pic.twitter.com/nTWN1mMRoO
