Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you get a chance to get out and enjoy the great weather. Are you looking for a few good films to get you in the patriotic mood? Or maybe you just want something to watch while you relax after the BBQ and fireworks. Look no further. Here is a list of films for you to check out during the long weekend, so grab some popcorn, heat up a hot dog and enjoy!


The Patriot
I really enjoyed this film. Jason Isaacs is a great bad guy and Mel Gibson is a hero to root for. In many ways it is Braveheart set in America but it is still a great film.

Revolution
A much gritter depiction of Revolutionary America, but that's what you expect from a movie staring 
Al Pacino.

John Adams
Are you stuck at home sick and need a marathon to help you celebrate the 4th? This is the mini-series for you. An excellent portrayal of one of the founding fathers by Paul Giamatti.

The Crossing
Jeff Daniels stars as George Washington in this film about the Battle of Trenton and the famous crossing of the Delaware River.

Jefferson In Paris
Looking for something a little different? Do you love Merchant Ivory films? I do. This beautifully shot movie deals with Thomas Jefferson's time in Paris as the French Ambassador. It isn't exactly Revolutionary War but it is a gorgeous film.

Oh, I loved The Crossing! All Americans should watch it... tells a great story but is also full of drama. Glad you reminded me of it! (visiting from "Celebrate USA Link Party")
