D-Day movies? Memorial Day movies? Duh?

Recommended Posts

What does TCM and D-Day have in common? Well, according to the schedule absolutely nothing. Just like their Memorial Day schedule. Weak and only slightly related. What happened to The Longest Day, Tora, Tora, Tora, Midway, Anzio, Patton, Sahara, and every other wartime movies goer's delight? Instead we get a miserable serving of James Garner's somewhat related, battle-less attempts at U.S. cleverness. It's a time for patriotism, not second-rate war movies that remind us of practically nothing of our countries success in battle and it's heroes. Disappointing. Very disappointing.

The Longest Day and D-Day, The Sixth of June and Saving Private Ryan are films I usually try to watch every year during the first week of June. This year, I thought seeing the Garner film "36 Hours" (for the first time in many years for me) was a nice change of pace to celebrate D-Day's anniversary. It's WWII spy fiction with quite a twist.
