Abstract : In my thesis statement, I will analyze why war movies are made and how they can be made effective in spreading propaganda of the interested groups, especially the government. To help analyze the movies in the correct perspective, I shall introduce the triad of interest groups in war movie appreciation, namely, the producer, the government and the target audience. These three interest groups that form the three legs of the triad interact with each other in a dynamic relationship. It is important for us to understand contextually which sides of this triangle are significant.
