The 20 Best War Movies of the Last Half-Century

"War is hell but it sometimes provides the backdrop for great movies. The recent Blu-ray release of 1917, followed by the 50th anniversary, this week, of the Oscar-winning Patton, starring George C. Scott, is as good an excuse as any for cinephiles to hunker down in the trenches of an impromptu war movie marathon (especially if you're stuck at home right now due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic).
With that in mind, here's a mission for you, soldier: work your way through this chronological list of the best war movies of the last fifty years. "Best" is ultra-subjective, of course, but when you're Alamo-ed up in a fort of pillows in your living room and there's nothing good on television, few of these movies should disappoint."
