re: Top War movies


Affleck was the bomb in Pearl Harbor.

Patton - one of the greatest
The Thin Red Line - an artsy war movie
Gods and Generals - been a while but I remember liking it
Inglorious Basterds - why not
Black Hawk Down - best modern war flick (haven't seen zero dark yet and I hope Lone Survivor is awesome)
Jarhead - was alright but too whiny, better than 3 Kings
Apocalypse Now - good but still makes me say wtf?
Hot Shots Part Deux

Whoever thinks the Patriot is a good movie should be perma banned.

This is not only my favorite war movie; it is possibly my favorite movie overall. Talk about some raw humanity. Kirk Douglas' character is the epitome of what a man should be.

I am one of the few apparently that did not enjoy Black Hawk Down. But the other ones were very good. 300 is one of my favorite movies.

This and Platoon have got to be the best ever made because they show the most depressing side of war possible in a movie
