    1917 was honestly my favorite WWI movie. I’ve rarely left the theater feeling as touched and moved by a movie as I did watching this one. I can honestly say that this movie isn’t just one of my favorite war films, but one of my favorite films in general. They did an amazing job! So good in fact, I went to see it 4 times! It’s a rare gem of a movie that will live on for years to come.

    Wings (1927) – I mean, come on, it won the first Academy Award for Best Picture. That’s gotta be worth something!

    King Vidor’s The Big Parade (1925). It’s one of the greatest silent films ever made, and one that shows the horrors of war in very realistic detail.

    Although 1917 is the GOAT, War Horse is another unforgettable piece of cinema.

    Aside from 1917, I thought Testament of Youth was a heartbreaking and beautiful story.
