    • 7. Saving Private Ryan (98?)
      Major Tear-jerker. I love Matt Damon and Tom Hanks. This is just...great. I didnt see it until about 2 years after it came out cuz I hada learn to handle blood better. But it was a sweet good story. How far are Tom Hanks and Ben Afflect. Tom & Matt stared in SPR, and Matt & Ben did Good Will Hunting. There yuh go. Go me!

      Makes me cry everytime. I know that it doesnt mean that much since I could cry at any movie (yeah Big Daddy makes me cry too)....but its a tear-jerker. LOL.
    • 5. Titanic (97)
      Im not sure WHY I thought it was the best movie ever, but since it was the biggest movie of the decade we might-as-well throw it in. Sure! What the hell. Yeah it was kinda...good and lame at the same time. Most people LOVE it or HATE it so...yeahz.

      A Classic...hasta be on here.
    • 3. Cruel Intentions (like...96?)
      Makes me cry, makes me laugh, makes me wish a guy would come to an airport just to see me. Makes me wanna write a diary with an awesome name such as Cruel Intentions. Makes me wish I was Sarah Michelle Gellar and got to kiss Ryan Phillipe...or Reese Witherspoon. But now Reese & Ryan are married and junk and OOOH the heartache. LOL.
    • 2. Big Daddy (i dunno...like 96?
      One of, if not, my favorite comedy. It has everything you need...a cute lil kid, a foreign guy who eats your food, a court case, sentemental dad-kid moments, idiots acting stupid, gay guys, and a tollbooth worker. Come on, that's everything that makes a movie great. Dont forget the peeing on the sides of buildings! And the MikkieD's Breakfast time changes! It's a classic. CLASSIC.
    • 1. Shawshank Redemption (94 i think)
      I had to put this at number one. It makes me cry everytime. My mom turned me on to this movie a few yrs ago (remember im only 16 yall) and so...I love it. LOL.

    By: kyle
    • 10. Captain Corelli's Mandolin {2001}
      You wont agree with me but for some reason i thought this movie about the Italians occupying A Greek island. For which this Italian Captain Corelli {Nicolas Cage} falls in love with this Greek woman {Penelope Cruz} is just great. Later after Mossulini is killed, the Germans are not Allies with the Italians and a war goes on. Until the Italians are simply crushed and Captain Corelli survives an execution for which brings tears to this Greek woman. And after all the town has suffered from war, a earthquake brings even greater distruction and the town must leave. But when she is about to leave Captain Corelli returns.
    • 9. Bridge to Far {1971}
      Americans most hold this bridge in order to have tanks come across and defeat the Germans. But the Germans want the bridge also so it becomes a amazing battle over a bridge in southern France
    • 8. The Great Escape {1963}
      The title pretty much explains it all. Although long it is a classic about American P.O.W.'s that escape a Nazi camp, and are chased down by the Nazi's. Some make it by flying out,taking the train,by boat,or even by foot. But most dont. Steve Mcqueen does an unforgettable job in this movie.
    • 7. Patton {1976?}
      Great movie about General George Patton commanding the American forces in North Africa against the Germans. But a little long, some scenes could be cut out. But overall the action,the acting,the great things this General did were simply outstanding.
    • 6. Dirty Dozen {1967}
      Dirty Dozen parachute in France during D-Day and are ordered to kill as many Nazi Generals as possible. Even if it cost them there lives. This moviw was filled with suspense and courage. I think it is the best OLD world war 2 movie ever made.
    • 5. Schindlers List {1993}
      I just thought this excellent piece of work couldnt go below 5. True story about Oscar Schindler {Liam Nielson} who is apart of the Nazi party. But disagrees on the murders of Jewish people. So he has hundreds of Jewish people work in his factory instead of being sent off to a concentration camp. But later when the Jewish people were told to live {in the Ghettos} they are being taken and sent off to concentration camps. He keeps getting more and more Jews to work in the factory. Until he buys them, so they dont be killed and they are later liberated by Russians while staying in his factory. Although hard to watch it expresses what the horrors of the Holocaust were really like.
    • 4. The Pianist {2003}
      You probably wont agree with me but I just found it completely phenomenal. Fact based story about a Jewish Polish Pianist{Adrian Brody} in Warsaw during the Nazi invasion. Shows terrifying scenes of the ghettos, to try and stay alive. Then succesfully getting away, and hiding from the Nazi's during the Warsaw uprising, he comes along a German officer. Unlike the other German officers he does not kill this Jewish Pianist, in fact he has him play the piano, and even helps him hide. But after Warsaw is liberated by the Russians, the German officer dies and never sees the pianist again. I have left out many important information in this movie so it doesnt give it away.
    • 3. Das Boot {1981}
      Another true story about a German submarine at sea fighting the British. It is amazing what they went through. No matter what the odds where they managed to destroy many submarines,destroyers, etc. They make it back home but most are eventually killed by British planes and bombers.
    • 2. Saving Private Ryan {1998}
      Best action movie ever. Great special effects. The battle scenes are incredibly amazing. After the Allies land in Normandy, i solider named Private James Ryan who loses all 3 of his brothers, and the army doesnt want Mrs. Ryan to lose her last son. So i squad of 8 soliders lead by Tom Hanks is sent out into Nazi occupied France to find this solider.
    • 1. Enemy at the Gates {2001}
      Incredible. TRUE story about a young Russian sniper {Jude Law} who plays a deadly "cat and mouse" game with the best German sniper {Ed Harris}, whos come all the way from Berlin to stop the Russian sniper killing his soldiers. To save the city of Stalingrad in a ficious and daring battle which lasted from 1941 to 1943.
    These are best world war 2 movies, not best movies of every category. IF YOU HAVE ANY DISAGREEMENT'S EMAIL ME AT RUTHANDHAROLD97@aol.com 'Thanks
