I believe the films I listed were some of the finest recognitions of the people who served in the second world war and were made in order to give the average person an emotional connection with a time and experience they could never have themselves. To say that watching them or spending the day watching television is an idiot's effort is in itself a pretty arrogant response. Motion pictures at their finest teach and give life long impressions and for the war which is becoming further and further from our national conscience these films can help bring it back into the light and a realization that it was fought by everyday people-not a volunteer army.
I would say what you do is a fine example for everyone, but save your judgmental opinions of those who watch television for both entertainment and education. Popping up with a ready insult is what is wrong with much of our society right now.
