Movies that make you feel patriotic

    On the recommendation of a post here, I re-watched "Apollo 13" tonight. It's one of those movies that's very "proud to be an American," and I don't mean that in a cheesy way.

    What are some others? I think "Saving Private Ryan" would rank. Can't think of any others offhand, but there must be a laundry list of them.

    Feeling patriotic is so 20th century.

    A Pauly Shore movie. Affirms our dedication to free expression, despite the consequences.

    I was thinking Apollo 13 even before I opened the thread. I hope we're still that kind of country, but I have my doubts.

    A few others: Glory, To Kill A Mockingbird, United 93, All The President's Men.

    I'd rank that mission not only in the top 25 of greatest American moments, but also high on the list of "F-You" moments.
    Not only did we beat the Russkies to the moon, we totally botched a mission then still made it to the moon AND back. Take that, ya godless Commies!
