8 Patriotic Movies That’ll Make You Love America (Streaming Right Now)


If you’re allergic to the sun or don’t like loud noises, maybe it’s best that you spend your long 4th of July weekend inside catching up on a patriotic movie or eight.

8 Patriotic Movies That’ll Make You Love America:

1. “The Patriot” // Amazon
It’s even kind of based on a true story– or four, supposedly.

2. “Patton” // Netflix
Intense, but solid. George C. Scott won the Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of General George S. Patton.

3. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington // Hulu
Mr. Smith might’ve been the first guy who tried to drain the swamp.

4. “Saving Private Ryan” // Amazon
The opening battle scene is considered one of the best of all-time.

5. “The Roosevelts” // Netflix
It’s approximately 14 hours long, but if you’ve got a long weekend, might as well give it a shot.

6. “Lincoln” // Amazon (Free on Showtime)
The film was loosely based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s biography, “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.” Loosely meaning about 15 pages. The movie is good and so is the book.

7. “Forrest Gump” // Netflix
It’s not, not historical and patriotic.

8. “John Adams” // Amazon
Ten hours about one of the guys who made this country into what it is? That’s almost not enough. Plus, you get a classic love story too.
