Power Rankings: The Most American Movies About America

The SAW Power Rankings is our weekly ranking of a certain movie related topic. Please feel free to comment on our rankings and provide a list of your own in the comments below.

4th of July is the most patriotic holiday there is here in the States so we decided to share movies that we feel is that best represent America. Without getting into too much of a history lesson, July 4th, 1776 is the day we celebrate our declaration of independence from England. It is also a day where Americans get together with friends and family, barbecuing, camping, shooting off fireworks and showing love for our country or just binging season three of Stranger Things.

We decided to rank the movies that we feel best represent America to us. You don’t have to be American to appreciate movie from or about America. War, sports, underdogs, superhero and the “American Dream” type films were listed. Even the fight for Scotland’s freedom in Braveheart? And who can ever forget learning about Abraham Lincoln’s vampire hunting in U.S. history class? There is also Duke’s list who watches nothing but American films, and decided to go the route of simply listing any movie with the word America in the title. Lastly and most importantly, we can not overlook the greatest force to protect the American way of life in Team America. Fuck Yea!

Let us know below which movies you feel best represent America.
