A quick check of television listings for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend shows pretty much the same tried and true war movies will air this year that are shown year in and year out. Not that there is anything really wrong with these films, but for those who want something a bit different, TailSlate suggests the following, in no particular order.
There is no shortage of films on the Armenian Genocide. 20 documentary films since 1945. 15 feature movies prior to The Promise from writer/director Terry George (Hotel Rwanda, Reservation Road). However, given the refusal of the government of Turkey to recognize the Armenian Genocide over a century later, the issue is important enough to warrant another feature telling the tale.
