Captain America: The First Avenger 

While you’re waiting for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming to come out next weekend, turn on Captain America: The First Avengers for a perfect combination of superhero and patriotism.

Independence Day

Honestly, it would be a crime to not watch this classic over the holiday weekend. Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum taking on aliens threatening to wipe out the United States? Doesn’t get much better than that.

Top Gun

Fighter pilots, beach volleyball, and Kenny Loggins jams… a perfect American combination. Spend the 4th with Maverick, Goose, and Iceman and get excited for it’s upcoming sequel.

The Sandlot

The Sandlot is the perfect movie to watch for July 4th. Not only is it all about America’s favorite past time, but the childhood nostalgia is real.

White House Down

Watch Channing Tatum kick some serious ass as he saves President Jamie Foxx from the terrorists attacking the white house.

The Patriot

With great performances by Mel Gibson and the late Heath Ledger, you’ll be waving your American flag all over the house after watching this classic.

Forrest Gump

Follow Forrest Gump through the major events in American history he was a part of. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and learn some life lessons. Remember that life is like a box of chocolates, people.

Apollo 13

“Houston, we have a problem.” There’s nothing that bands American’s together more than trying to bring home three astronauts after their spacecraft undergoes serious internal damage.

Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde

There’s nothing wrong with a little chick flick on the 4th of July! Elle Woods travels to DC to pass a bill to ban animal testing in this fun sequel.

Cars & Days of Thunder

If you want to see a bunch of people who love America all in one place, go to a NASCAR race. Watch Cars for the kids and then later pop in Days of Thunder for some old school Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

John Adams Miniseries

If you’re looking for an all day 4th of July binge, then hit up the HBO miniseries, John Adams. Paul Giamatti stars as the 2nd president of the United States in this critically acclaimed show.
