  1. Patton! Yes. I knew Patton had to be on here. Now, I’m going to go home and throw that in the DVD player.

  2. Great list but where is Lawrence of Arabia? It’s historical. It’s the story of Thomas Edward Lawrence and his impact on the Arab Revolt against the Turks. It has battles and everything and it’s just as popular culturally as most of the movies listed. C’mon son!
