    What is your favorite war movie?

    My favorite has to be Full Metal Jacket. The first 30 minutes of the movie with Drill Instructor Hartmann and Pvt. Pyle was friggin' hilarious. I still laugh every time I see it (over 50 atleast).

    Saving Private Ryan is another one.

    Braveheart, Patriot and a bit of "We were soldiers". Not so much so the movies themselves but the Gibson characters.

    Saving Pvt Ryan's probably the best one made. But we don't get to know much about Tom Hanks' character.

    Well, it was on TV, but Band of Brothers

    Even though I am not a huge Nicholas Cage fan - my favorite is Windtalkers by far.

    Very difficult to answer.

    Longest Day, Patton, Battle of the River Plate, Few Good Men, Armistaad, Bridge on the River Kwai are those which have left an impression on me.
