The post 7 Pearl Harbor Movies Ranked From Worst To Best appeared first on Screen Junkies.

December 7th marks the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Over the years, there have been many films and mini-series that depict the historic day which saw the United States Pacific Fleet besieged by the Japanese. Some of these films are true classics, and another is directed by Michael Bay.

Here’s a rundown of films about Pearl Harbor ranked from worst to best. The spectrum works like this: If the film tugs at the heartstrings, it’s considered one of the best. If the film features time travel, it’s considered an abomination.

Pearl Harbor

Noticing that previous films about the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor weren’t awesome enough, Michael Bay set out to right that wrong. The Titanic-inspired result is a poorly written and acted film that focuses most of its attention on a love triangle. However, all that emotionally hooey is merely filler built up around the epic and realistic battle, because you can’t just release a movie about bombings and air battles without some kind of plot. It would be pretty cool if you could, though.

The Final Countdown

When a 1980′s aircraft carrier is accidentally warped back in time to 1941 Hawaii, they have precious hours to prevent the Japanese attack. Wow. I don’t know what’s more inappropriate: The fact that they based a science fiction film against the worst military attack on American soil, or that Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor is regarded as being worse than this.

Having finally run out of things to complain about, Andy Rooney signed off from 60 Minutes last night. Born on January 14, 1919, the 92-year old has been spouting off curmudgeonly rants on the news program for 33 years, but has now retired after reminding crew and staffers of their own mortality for far too long. He may be gone, but his old man smell will linger on in the studio for years to come.

Hey, speaking of smelly and old, here are five actors older than Andy Rooney.

Ernest Borgnine

Date of Birth: Januar 24, 1917

Most famous for the lead role in McHale’s Navy, old fart Ernest Borgnine has also enjoyed a long career with appearances in Escape From New York, The Wild Bunch, The Dirty Dozen, and BASEketball. In recent years, he famously admitted that the secret to his health and longevity is that he spends a lot of time masturbating. In fact, he’s probably doing it right now. There’s a visual.

Kirk Douglas

Date of Birth: December 9, 1916

Kirk Douglas most recently frightened children when he appeared at the Oscars and delivered a 17-hour speech. However, before creeping out James Franco, he was one of Hollywood’s biggest stars in his day. He starred in Spartacus, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and The Final Countdown. He also has the distinction of being the only living being that prevents Michael Douglas from looking old.
