I decided to turn the other thread into a poll to narrow my picks form some of your suggestions down to three. I would appreciate it if the first mod/admin that reads this could shut down my old thread. Pick one in each poll and the winner from each section will fill out my list of three.

Thanks to all of you who gave me ideas for what movies I could use. Even if most of you did ignore the request for no military flicks (jk).

The poll will close Thursday night around 11:30.

How about The God Shepherd. A great movie about the formation of the CIA. Breach is a good choice too.

shhhhhh.....it's a good movie. And it brought worldwide attention to the developing and heightining tensions between Arab nationalists and extremeists and Israel (that's my argument to my teacher). And sorry to the first guys whose votes got erased, I didn't know editing the poll would reset everything.

You seriously need to work on your choice of words in creating a Topic Heading, because your Poll consists of 3 Different Movie Categories.

And to add a Little More to your Gangster Movie Poll:
Donnie Brasco, The St. Valentine's Day Massacre, Bonnie and Clyde, Scarface, Casino and Bugsy.

not to flame but your movies for the most part are WAY to modern. even historically based movies now a days are worked to give the viewer the most intense actionpacked movie they can get. If you really want good movies jump back a decade or even more! the movies made then truely embodied the event they were depicting sure they are not filled with fancy CGI and other effects but those movies are what spawned the action movies of today and that gave rise to the modern action star.

Yesterday i watched The longest day, staring a variety of movie stars ( more than you can get to work together today) and a very young sean conery ( yes i am a bond nut) following that was the movie Midway which gives great insight into both US and Japanese mentalities on war and then there was mad max beyond thunderdome again thats a whole different story.


The longest day despite it's black and white presentation the longest day joins actual footage from both US and German sides during WWII along with shot footage encompasing the entire D-day operation everything fron the french resistance to the luftwaffe are covered in this film and the messages conveyed about human nature in war are pretty powerful all the while it dose this in an entertaining way. In my opinion this movie and other movies of its time are much better depections of US events since the people of the time wanted more fact and recreation of events rather than flashy entertainment. dont get me wrong there are good recent movies but i only see 3 movies in your list that can compare to the films of decades past.

My assignment is to compile a list of three movies, watch the one my teacher selects from the list, then find six more sources (encyclopidia articles, books, credible news magazines, internet sources, etc.) and write a six page paper comparing the movie to the event(s) it is based upon. There is even some leway with the accuracy of the movie. The movie just has to be based on subject matter (such as the Kennedy assassinations, moon landing, early immigration) that had major effects on the history of the U.S., the event can be fictional as long as we can connect it to real events.

Also, the deadline has been moved to Sunday night (he extended our timeline).
