The Toptober Tens #24 –  Based on Real Event Films


toptoberFor this month’s twenty fourth Toptober Tens, Here are my Top Ten Favorite Based on Real Event films.

Once again, here’s a list that was not easy to widdle down to only 10 because there are so many amazing movies that have been made that were based on real events.

I have chosen to only focus on event movies here and leave biographies for a future list.

Since I couldn’t limit myself just to 10, this list actually features 15 movies.  The five honorable mention movies could easily break my top ten on any given day because they are all so powerful movies, but when compiling this, they just missed the cutoff; tomorrow… who knows??

Keep in mind, that these are all solely my opinion and part of what I would like to do is open conversation and dialogue between us all over the choices in these lists
