Quick movie log

If "you are what you watch," what does this "video salad" say about us?

This list is over the summer. We read more than we watch but, we do like our Netflix "Roku" boxes. The kids have been outside riding bikes and playing in the cul-de-sac. Once or twice a week, Dad and Mom "pop in" a video, usually something to do with WWII. Here is a quick list:

War of 1812, History Chan.
Tora, Tora, Tora -- that was fun, as kids and grandparents watched too
Patton -- My second favorite; I thought Patton should of pushed east and gone after Stalin.

Quo Vadis? -- This was, by far, my favorite...we know the early Christians were fed to lions and other cruel and hideous forms of "sport" in the Coliseum, but this movie really gives you a feeling for what it would have been like to approach such suffering with certain valor
Mark Twain, an A&E Biography
The Third Man, film noir evidently, started slow, but good ending, starring a very young Orson Welles
A Bridge Too Far
