War is of course horrific and terrible but which of the War movies you have seen had the most impact?
I found the greater movies to be classics like:

The older classics

My favorites would be:

The Guns of the Navarone
Where Eagles dare
The Great Escape

Newer Classics

The Siege of Firebase Gloria
Full Metal Jacket
Platoon
Apocalypse now
Heartbreak Ridge
Black Hawk Down
Saving Private Ryan

Those are by no means in order...

What about you?

Red Dawn

and, not necesarily a war movie, but rocked anyways. I believe it was called The Castle, with Robert Redford, and James Gandolfini?

I'm not a fan of American war movies as they tend to be extremely liberal with the use of facts.

Battle of the bulge was a goody though, and i did like Pattons life story movie.

well lets see here....movies are called entertainment for a reason. care to guess why?

if they were 100% "factual" (which generally tends to follow along the lines of what one believes or the way THEY think things happend) then they would be called educational films such as the ones you see in places called schools!!!

even movies based on actual events actually say "based on actual events" not, "this is how everything actually happened", ever heard of creative license? they have to make it as appealing as possible to make money, not educate people. guess thats why education and entertainment usually dont go hand in hand. they do have disclaimers before or after the movie stating that events and timeslines havent been changed, characters added, compressed for time and otherwise fudged with to ENTERTAIN the audience, not educate.

sorry if this crushes your understanding of how the entertainment industry works but you seem a bit confused as to what the entertainment industry actually does and/or should do.


oh yeah one of my fave war movies is Glory.

morgan freeman, matthew broderick, denzel washington. even broderick shined through in this film like gold. great movie!

Funny that to be considered a war movie it usually has to do with this century (I guess last century now) and Americans. Before that they are just historical type movies. Well my favourite war movie is Braveheart. Probably not considered a war movie but I don't care. Next is Black Hawk Down.

Paths Of Glory remains the best.

Apocalypse Now was the last good war movie.

Platoon and Saving Private Ryan were crap.

This is all subjective, you see.

Born on the fourth of july and there is another one, just can't think of the name right now!! I'm not big into war movies though really as they all seem to be about the same thing along the same lines
