Remembrance Day 2015

November 11th is Remembrance Day here in Canada.

Unfortunately I'll be traveling on this day, I typically pay my respects by attending the very well attended memorial at our local hockey arena. I'll be paying respects in my own way on November 11th.

I've become a bit of a history buff of the fist world war thanks to my Dad, particularly about the ANZAC's (Australian and New Zealand Army Corp) and the Canadian involvement.

Here are a few great movies to watch this time of year....

Two Australian sprinters face the brutal realities of war when they are sent to fight in the Gallipoli campaign in Turkey during World War I.

The lives of a troubled veteran, his nurse girlfriend and a naive boy intersect first in Alberta and then in Belgium during the bloody World War I battle of Passchendaele.

The Water Diviner:
An Australian man travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons.

And a new one:

Hyene Road:
Three different men, three different worlds, three different wars - all stand at the intersection of modern warfare - a murky world of fluid morality where all is not as it seems.

All good movies worth watching.

Lest we forget....
