Black Friday Movie – Watching films that pay tribute to those who died while serving in the country’s armed forces is a good way to spend the long weekend remembering those who died while serving in the country’s armed forces.

While Hollywood may appear to be overrun with war films that lack reverence at times, there are many that seek to honors the fallen men and women of the military.

We found several films (and two shows) that you can watch this weekend on Amazon Prime, HBO Max, Hulu, and Netflix to honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Following the success of “Saving Private Ryan,” Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks turned to HBO to tell the story of Easy Company of the United States Army 101st Airborne Division and their mission in WWII Europe, from Operation Overlord to V-J Day.

The Most Exciting Years of Our Lives (HBO Max)

Spike Lee’s drama about four Black veterans returning to Vietnam in search of the remains of their fallen squad leader (the late Chadwick Baseman) and the gold fortune he helped them hide, Da 5 Bloods (Netflix).
