Pop Culture Footnotes_Top War Movies

In honor of Memorial Day, we sat down with our friend Lenore to discuss our personal top five war movies. We’d like to share our appreciation for all those who have laid down their lives to defend freedom and the rights of mankind around the world. While we are celebrating an American holiday, we know that Americans are not and have never been alone in this fight. On behalf of everyone at Pop Culture Footnotes, thank you.
