Default Band of Brothers...The Pacific...Schindler's List...Saving Private Ryan

Has anyone else ever tried to watch these in the order of when the events happened? I thought it was kind of cool...just annoying to pop out the discs constantly.

Here is what I have for order. I listed all dates in to get a sense of what I thought was important(like pairing BOB basic out of order with the invasion). I moved some episodes to finish story lines and to go with the flow better. It is a tough call, but I feel like sometimes the episodes leave off really later in the dates so I had to stray away from absolute chronological. Any thought? Schindler's List is a tack on for sure..but I think it gives a since of scope and being pissed off over the jewish genocide that moves us into the whole series. The only problem is that it really shows the end of the war before the rest of series have transpired. Still when watching them this way, you can almost think of BOB, The Pacific, and SPR as a "flashback".

For me including war movies outside of this scope(like the Longest Day etc..) takes me out of it all because of the stark difference in cinematography. I think what Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks produced are nothing short of masterpiece(not that the other war movies through you the years aren't). Giving them a thread with each other I found to be a true supplement.
