    • Why is Band of Brothers in the poll? It's not a movie.

      Anyway it's just one of the most incredible series productions I've ever seen. It tops any war movie out there, by a mile. Everything about it, from its realism, to its depiction of war, to its story-telling, is just amazing. Itís one of those rare gems thatís produced once in a decade.

      Now hereís a list of my favorite war movies in no particular order:
      1. Schindlerís List
      2. Saving Private Ryan
      3. The Thin Red Line
      4. Apocalypse Now
      5. Full Metal Jacket
      6. The Pianist

      Probably a few that I've forgotten! :)

      Schindlerís List is so powerful that itís hard to watch. Saving Private Ryan is an all-time classic that makes a strong impact. Some of the scenes and images from the first 30 minutes sticks with you for a very long time!

      Thanks,
      Nebula82.

        Oh yes!! I remember. It has been so long since I watched this movie but it was truly superb. The Directorís Cut version is a must-see.

        • Henry V

          Marvelous work by Kenneth Branaugh generally but, of course...the opus that drives men to tears-

                    Agreed, don't know why this garbage is considered in this category.

                    • Several others to consider: The Burmese Harp, Grave of the Fireflies (more anti-war are these two films, both Japanese), Ran, the Grand Illusion, and Wings. I suppose the criteria would have to be defined better; strictly about fighting a war, events that coincide with (a specific) war, or movies that involve the military to some degree but not always in a war. The list could be inexhaustible.


                      Ah 1,550 posts, nice round number to take a break on. :))

                      • My favorite movie is the German movie "Stalingrad". Depicts the ferocity and hopelessness of the eastern front in WWII.

                          • the gallant hours. James Cagney as William Halsey during the battle of Guadalcanal. no action but a good movie about the pressures of command

                            Das Boot. the undersea hunter

                            the cruel sea. the hunter of the hunter

                            my best. Schindlers list

                            • Dr. Strangelove and Patton are two other movies I highly recommend!

                              Patton is a good movie about the man & WWII, but Dr. Strangelove is a cult classic. Itís hilarious, downright hilarious but dark as well. Kubrick takes a subject as serious as the Cold War and turns it into a comedy, but with a potent anti-war message. Donít rent it, buy it!
