Posts Tagged ‘Bicycle Thieves’

captamericablogathonFor those who didn’t see my original post, one of the extended trailers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier shows a pocket note book where Steve Rogers makes a list of things people have recommended he should catch up on in the time he was frozen (1943 and 2011). The idea of the Blogathon is to recommend ten movies to him.

I intend to do a few lists, this is my first, all of the films depict key events of the time. They are also all really good movies.

Bicycle Thieves (1948) or The Third Man (1949) – The aftermath of WWIIBicycle ThievesThe Third Man

To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)-  Civil rightsto-kill-a-mockingbird

Woodstock (1970) – WoodstockWoodstock

American Graffiti (1973) – youth culture and rock and roll musicamerican graffiti

The Right Stuff (1983) – The Space RaceThe Right Stuff

Platoon (1986) – Vietnamplatoon

Schindler’s List (1993) The HolocausSchindler's List

Good Night, and Good Luck. (2005) McCarthyismGood Night, and Good Luck
