Top 100 War Films

Welcome to the Top 100 War Films page. This is a work in progress, so the initial rankings will look weird.

I have taken all the war films I've seen over the years (and that is a LOT of films) and whittled it down to about 150-200 films I think represent the best of the genre. I am re-watching each film on that list to decide if it belongs here. If it does, then it gets compared to all other films on the list and slotted accordingly.

What this means is that the first 100 films I see will initially be on this list before some disappear as they are knocked off by others. It also means that some films will be ranked way higher than they should to start, since they can only be compared to what it already on the list.

Make sense? Good. Here's the list:
