Favorite War Movie? info


Whats your favorite war/historical movie?

Mines gotta be The Thin Red Line, am Im not really sure why. Its combination of action, and human emotions I guess really interested me.

Hmmmmm, very interesting question..

It's really hard to pick one favorite movie.

I think I have to pick two: "Apocalypse now" (the extended version) and "Full Metal Jacket".
None of those movies does glorify War.
And they do have that interresting combination of action and human emotions too.

And I have to pick one more, not a complete movie,
but the first 20 minutes of "Saving Private Ryan"..
It's just awesome on a big screen TV and a good surround system...

without a doubt, Tears of the Sun



and by the way, did anyone else want to ring that skinny little bastard's neck in Saving Private Ryan? damn, i can't stand that little coward, and then at the end he shoots an unarmed man, like that's supposed to redeem him or something.

I heard that movie wasn't very good, like it combined an action thriller with a anti-war message, at least it's what I read on amazon.com. Please tell me this isnt the case!

i didn't see any message like that. it was all action, not very insightful, but it sure as hell was entertaining, pretty much showcased the skills of our SF.

Hmm, I just saw it last night, and it wasn't all action from my position. It really mad me upset, because the ethnic cleansing in Nigeria and Africa is really happening, and the movie also shows some of the political aspects around the situation. Id say it's fairly thought provoking.

I liked tears of the sun, very good, a lot of thought provoking messages there, the inital tatics at the end when they got ambushed were great!

I liked The Great Escape, not really sure why, but also U-571 - I'm biased though, I like anything on a sub.
