A movie that I recommend is "Taking Chance."

Is is based on the true story, staring Kevin Bacon, of escorting fallen Marine PFC Chance Phelps on his last journey home to his birthplace in Wyoming.

Very dignified movie and as a Marine, even tougher to watch.

Thanks for the suggestion. It was quite touching indeed, I'm also an ex Marine (Vietnam, approx 1966). I came very close to being a casualty. Many whom I knew never made it out alive. I returned home without a scratch. It still amazes me how that even happened.

One movie that I think is very much worth getting on DVD is called 'Danny Deck Chair' It's romantic, fun and will boost your immune system after so much enjoyment.

Truly have enjoyed reading this thread of MOVIE favorites. I have seen about all but two. I did not see anything about Christine Bale -Actor in the western "Hostiles" made in 2017. I still do not know why I kept returning to watch it over and over some 6-times or more. Came across it on Netflix, no longer showing. About a small group of Military 1866-union Soldiers-Calvery escorting an Indian Chief and his family to the Decota hills to die. For myself, a very moving movie well done, acting as they fight off PTSD for prior conflicts, and save a woman who lost her family.


2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van, showing six tires down, 3400XD, V6, 7-Speed Automatic 24FL, 170-WB, 24'-3", Coachmen Galleria w/Li3, "Next ROAD TRIP" to where?

Memorial Day with James Cromwell.

A story about a boy and his grandfather.
Two generations of soldiers, two generations of war.

I remember when I was about 13, I asked my father about the rifle and the sword with the funny character inscriptions(Japanese lettering)on them that he stored in our basement back home. It was the only time I saw him well up about the war.

If you watch the movie you'll know what I mean.

I have a very soft spot for "Big Fish".

I find endearlng AF the way everyone adds to Ed's story a bit, and breaks me everytime because his son realizes that the story isn't complete until he cheaps in.

'CODA' which I think is the best movie so far this year. Saw it twice from Apple advance screenings, though now only playing on Apple TV. Will be among Oscar nominated for best picture.

'A Midnight Clear', a touching movie involving isolated American soldiers celebrating Christmas along with German counterparts in Ardennes Forest during WWII. Though ends unexpectedly when same German unit negotiate a peaceful surrender. Watch if free on IMDb-TV: A Midnight Clear.

A Midnight Clear is said to have inspired Steven Spielberg to make 'Saving Private Ryan'.
