Top Ten Saddest War Movies


The Top Ten

1 Schindler's List

Amazing true story, the theme alone almost moved me to tears!


2 Saving Private Ryan

My favorite scene was when the last remaining soldiers of Cpt.Miller's group including Private Ryan were in the Alamo. It was really sad when Horvath died. After he tried got shot three times carrying a bazooka to destroy a Tiger Tank.

Cpt. Miller: You okay Mike!
Horvath: Yeah fine, Just got the wind knocked out of me."

This would definitely be in the top 3 if not number 1 for me, the impact was the strongest in this movie for me

I agree, this definitely should be in top 3.

Should be in top ten of the best movies ever made.

Love you seita and setsuko

10 The Boy In the Striped Pajamas

Oh my goodness. I never saw the movie, but I read the book, and I know enough. This one's a real tear-jerker. It belongs at #1.

Watched it at school today and the whole class was in tears

The Contenders

My name is Gladiator! People tend to call me Russel Crowe, but I prefer to be called 'The greatest badass in Roman history!
