What sort of movies scream "give me liberty or give me death"?

More

For those who are, as one commenter said, "Dying to know what kind of movies get watched at Libertarian Movie Night", this week's film is cult classic The Americanization of Emily. It's a comedy starring Julie Andrews as a patriotic British woman during World War II, who falls in love with an officer (James Garner) whose self-proclaimed ideology is "cowardice". I first watched it with my dad more than twenty years ago, and highly recommend it to everyone, including the friends I am about to inflict it on.

Suggestions for future movie nights more than welcome in the comments; so far I've come up with "Enemy of the State" and "The Incredibles".
