Suggestions for good WWI or WWII movies that can be found on Netflix or youtube can go here... for those slow Saturday nights... or writing inspiration.

Just a few of my personal favorites:

- HBO Band of Brothers
- HBO The Pacific
- Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter (or "Generation War")
- Enemy at the Gates
- Beneath Hill 60
- Suite Française (also one of my favorite books)
- Snow Falling on Cedars (not purely a WWII movie but it deals a lot with the experience of Japanese Americans in interment camps on the west coast.)
- Flame & Citron
- The Red Baron
- The English Patient

Some suggestions:

*All Quiet On the Western Front (the 1933 adaptation)
*Saving Private Ryan
*Waterloo Bridge (both the 1931 and 1940 versions are good, although I personally prefer the 1940 one since it stars Clark Gable)
*Warhorse (if you're up for a touchy-feely film about a soldier and his beloved horse)

'War Horse' broke my soul. For real. And I'm not even a horse person.

@Frances, Same! It's an adaption of a fiction novel with the same title and the novel broke my heart too

@Nicole Armas, I really need to read it because it was a beautiful movie. When Tom Hiddleston died... I was a blubbering mess.

@Frances, I know right?! When Captain Nichols (Hiddleston's character) died in the book, I actually had to reread the entire page because I couldn't believe what happened
