SDB Evening News Reads for 053011 Memorial Day EditionPosted: May 30, 2011
Well, for Memorial Day we are going to make this an Open Thread. The news is so depressing…so just for today check out these fun links. Since we have a music thread going on here, I thought we would have a movie thread this evening.
So be sure to post some of you favorite War and Summer movies!
I am going to post some funny ones, cause I just don’t feel like bringing the post down…
My first choice, No Time for Sergeants (1958) – IMDb
Will Stockdale is a country bumpkin drafted into the Air Force and too dumb to realize he’s driving everyone around him crazy — no one more than Sgt. King.
This next one is my son’s favorite movie…he is 13 so go figure.
When two escaping American World War II prisoners are killed, the German POW camp barracks black marketeer, J.J. Sefton, is suspected of being an informer
Billy Wilder directed this great movie…and what a cast. William Holden, Otto Preminger, Peter Graves and Robert Strauss.
And this next one…Kelly’s Heroes (1970) – IMDb
It is full of anti-war sentiment and a whole lot of hippie references.
For my Summer choices…one of the best movies that kick off summer: Jaws (1975) – IMDb
When a gigantic great white shark begins to menace the small island community of Amity, a police chief, a marine scientist and grizzled fisherman set out to stop it.
Anyway, lets have your favorite War and Summer flicks…
And if you want to get caught up on the news…Google News
I’ll be sure to go back to our regular format tomorrow. Happy Memorial Day!
