War films on Boxing Day, can Xmas end any better?

#1
Have packed the kids off, topped up the dinner time hangover with a decent bottle and have settled down to watch ITV 4's 633 Squadron on Sky +

For those of us lucky enough to be at home with family and friends, is there any better way to wrap up Christmas?

My favourite airy plane of all time being flown by Mike Baldwin and Fritz getting a jolly good thrashing.

It's nearly finished! I'm watching Bridge on the River Kwai on 139
Good man Jarrod, just hit the Sky+ for that one as well. Am just at the point where Mr Baldwin is about to buy it on the training flight, so Jack Hawkins and Alec Guiness will have to wait for the second bottle of port.

Worth watching 633 again just to watch the Mossies and listen to those Merlins.

Watched 'Aces High' just before, WW1 stiff upper lip stuff, marvelous!

Still can't beat de Haviland's wooden wonder, what a plane.

On now, Richard III , not a war film per se, but a blinding performance by Sir Ian.
