  • 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.

        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.

              Black Hawk Down, The Lost Battalion, Hamburger Hill, Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers are all good. Full Metal Jacket would have made the list if the second half wasn't so weak compared to the first half.

                            Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Today... is Christmas! There will be a magic show at zero-nine-thirty! Chaplain Charlie will tell you about how the free world will conquer Communism with the aid of God and a few marines! God has a hard-on for marines because we kill everything we see! He plays His games, we play ours! To show our appreciation for so much power, we keep heaven packed with fresh souls! God was here before the Marine Corps! So you can give your heart to Jesus, but your ass belongs to the Corps! Do you ladies understand?

                              How could I forget that one??

                              R. Lee Ermey is definitely the Man!


                              I just started watching Band of Brothers again. I didnt see the last couple of episodes when it came out, so this will be a treat to see them all within a few days.
