Thread: Good War Movies?

  1. #1
    I just watched Black Hawk Down, and that was top shelf.

    Being that our boys of the summer are raising hell in Iraq, seems like a good time to load up on good old fashion war movies. Now I have seen all of the classics Platoon, Full Medal Jacket, Saving Pvt Ryan... But what are the other good ones that are sometimes over looked? Was that Mell gibson one in Vietnam any good?

    Das Boot (The Boat), Brilliant film even tho its subtitled
    Also "Hope and Glory" set in london during the blitz
    This may not be a film but i thought that the series "Band of Brothers" was excellent
    just been watching the repeats on cable in the Uk best drama in a long time

    "Saving private Ryan" should be the king of all war movies, "K-19 Widowmaker" is also very intense, if "Forrest Gump" can also be classified as a war movie, then it would be my third

    Enemy At The Gate, Kelly's Heroes, and The Dirty Dozen are all worth a mention here.

    just my 2 cents worth

    Hamburger Hill..... shows stupidity of war better as every other movie
    We were soldiere once.. is pretty good
    The killing fields... more war madness
    enemy down below... is a great submarine picture
    platoon
    The beast of war... one of my all time favorites... it's about a tank...
    the already mentioned enemy at the gates was good

    Not to miss... Apocalypse now

    and for everyone who thinks: If we just send in the best it finished soon and none of us die..... rambo2 tilll 99

    The Deer Hunter. Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, Meryl Streep in one of the best movies ever made. Only half of it is set in Vietnam but The whole of the film revolves around that theme. Just a brilliant film, see it if you haven't.

    Also The Thin Red Line was pretty good, if a little slow moving.
