Fire Up These Flicks on this Fourth

Jul 3, 2018 5:45:00 PM / by DishForMyRV

With the Fourth of July quickly approaching us, it would only make sense to get into that festive spirit by watching some patriotic classics on Netflix. Here are some suggestions of what you should consider tuning into in honor of the holiday of our country’s independence with the convenience of streaming it from Netflix. Fortunately for you, DISH has you covered with the Wally’s ability to connect Netflix through a receiver. All you need is internet connection and, of course, a subscription to Netflix. Streaming from anywhere has never been so easy!


Armageddon (1998)

Nothing screams patriotism more than a person risking their own life for a country, let alone a whole planet. A nuclear asteroid is set to hit Earth and the only way to stop it is to drill into its surface and plant a bomb in order to destroy it before it has contact with Earth. Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis) is called to embark on this life or death mission with a crew that involves his daughter’s boyfriend A.J., (Ben Affleck) who he is not the most fond of until their journey in space proves him otherwise. A story that touches base on heroism, determination, and love: what more could you ask for?

Seal Team Six: The Raid of Osama Bin Laden (2012)

An inside look on the 2011 mission to execute Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. An action packed film showcasing the American bravery that went into taking down the world’s most wanted terrorist.

Inglourious  Basterds (2009)

With Quentin Tarantino as the director, you really can’t expect anything less than extreme violence throughout this cinematic masterpiece. Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) forms a team of Jewish-American soldiers and unite with a German actress and undercover agent, Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger), to constitute violence among the Nazis and the leaders of the Third Reich during Germany's invasion of France. This historical tale emphasizes the American redemption during a time of mass corruption.

Full Metal Jacket (1987)

A brutal look into the bloody Battle of Hue and the training that went behind it in preparation for war. The harsh reality and consequences of war are emphasized to show how its effects have the capability to heavily impact the countries involved.

Forrest Gump (1994)

Who can go wrong with watching an American classic that inspired a famous restaurant chain after its release? A tale about Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks), who is known to influence people with his optimism, while narrating his experiences throughout significant moments in American history during the late 1900’s. We get a glimpse of what the times were like and how Americans dealt with the Vietnam War, Civil Rights Era, and all the way to the beginning of the AIDS crisis.

The Longest Day (1962)

Despite being an older movie, there is a reason why this classic has stuck around as long as it has and is considered as one of the best American cinema has to offer. Being awarded an Academy for Best Visual Effects and Best Cinematography, The Longest Day follows the U.S. Army and Allied Forces in the process of strategizing a plan to invade Normandy, France during 1944. Complications involving the German military under Adolf Hitler evidently intervene with their plans and sets them back exponentially.


Now we are are going to take American history all the way back to the Revolutionary War in this AMC series. It entails a network of spies identified as the Culper Ring, who were responsible for the defeat of the British through the discovery of their top secret military strategies. The eventual defeat was no easy task, since the accomplices involved were caught between remaining loyal to their roots or sticking with their newfound patriotism in America.


Enjoy the flicks and have a happy 4th of July!
