Sometime 2019: World War II Movie Marathon

Starting sometime in the Year of Our Lord 2019, I am going to start watching a crapton of World War II movies. It'll be American-centric considering that I am indeed American, but I will be trying to watch movies from all sides of the world-spanning conflict, including contemporary historical films. The main draw will be the fact that I haven't seen most of these before, somehow.

I'm going to try to watch all of these in rough chronological order, bookended by Nuremberg. I might include The Pacific and Band of Brothers if I finish the rest, but very unlikely. I want to make it to where I can watch all of these in a month but without having to watch three a day or something crazy.

Not on Letterboxd: "Chocolate and Soldiers", 1938 Japanese film.

This list is still a WIP though! If you have suggestions on additions/removals, please help me out!
