    What is your favorite war movie?




    Since it's Veterans day and we are remembering/Honoring those who have served in our fine military,





    I was thinking of how many great military movies there are, and know everyone has some favorites,



    Favorite WWll-Saving Private Ryan, Many great actors, Good story, Life like scenes, (First 15 minutes might be the best beginning of any action movie ever made)





    Favorite Vietnam-Apocalypse Now, Again Great actors, Different story than any other Vietnam movie, The Colonel Kurtz character couldn't of been more intriguing


    Series-Band of Brothers, One of the best series ever made regardless of theme IMO, relevance to history, Story lines, real on site scenery, and best of all-The actual real Airborne members commenting throughout.
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.

    The Hurt Locker

    For a lil more comedy- Inglorious Basterds
    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    Does 300 count as a war movie?

    A Bridge Too Far
    The Longest Day
    Tora, Tora, Tora
    The Bridge Over the River Kwai
    Zulu
    Full Metal Jacket
    Breaker Morant
    Gallipoli

    And, as noted, "Band of Brothers" is awesome.
    Can't wait for "The Pacific" in the spring on HBO.


    As for that list Gregair posted, I disagree with many of the listings.
    "Schindler's List" is NOT a war movie.
    Neither is "Forrest Gump" or "Casablanca".

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I watched ZULU with my grandfather when I was 16....ever since then it's been my favorite. I think Michael Cain was in his 20's then

    I would say Tropic Thunder for some comedic effect, but that movie is just bad!

    For me it is:

    Full Metal Jacket
    Saving Private Ryan
    Platoon
    Apocalypse Now
    The Hunt for Red October (Although not a true WAR movie)
    Stripes
    Toy Soldiers


    Band of Brothers

    Battle of Britain
    The Colditz Story - if you can get the two books then they make interesting reading
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
