Apocalypse Now was the last good war movie.

Platoon and Saving Private Ryan were crap.

This is all subjective, you see.


Private Ryan was crap?
how so?

Thanks Ivan...that's the one....


Private Ryan rocked...maybe not so much for story...but for it's ability to transport you there... Many D-Day vets got the willies when they saw it...and that says a lot...

Last of the Mohicans? Or Last of the Dogmen? Would those fit war movies or no?

Lots of new movies, i like the oldies
The Wooden horse
Apocalypse Now
Full Metal Jacket

I do like the newer war movies but I get pissed off with americans taking libertys with the truth ie
saving private ryan. oh were the americans the only one at dday
The patriot oooh thise brits are so bad
U571 oh the americans captured the enigma code and cracked it, funny my history books say different, I know they are good films but history takes a thumping more than the enemy!
I am not anti US but the brits arent just good baddies we are heroes too. but seriously with regards to sp ryan my grandad fought at dday, and although the battle effects were excellent he fought as well. Ah well just another disgrutled brit!!!
LOL

There's a little clue for you, Krazy and Gazrok...

Some others:

Spielberg
sentimentalism & manipulation in the guise of a 'blockbuster'
such a great precursor it was for the "Saving Private Lynch" fiction bull#.

The Dirty Dozen
The Great Escape
Full Metal Jacket
Platoon
Patton
Last Of The Mohicans (Best theme, ever)

Not in any particular order.

I havent seen Paths Of Glory... but it looks good. Anyone know exactly why it is banned in France?

My favorite is not really a "movie" so to speak, but more of a mini series. Band of Brothers was amazing. You either have to have HBO or by the DVD box set. It's worth the cash.

I didn't know Paths Of Glory was banned in France.

It is about the French in the trenches in World War 1, and three soldiers who end up being charged with cowardice, and what happens to them.

It did not cast the French military (leadership) in good light at all.

Patton
Braveheart
Band of Brothers
Full Metal Jacket

A fine Stanley Kubrick Film . The film is unflinching in its condemnation of war and the self-indulgence of military leaders who orchestrate the deaths of thousands from the comfort of their luxurious headquarters. For many years, Paths of Glory was banned in France as a slanderous attack on French honor, but it's clear that Kubrick's intense drama is aimed at all nations and all men. Though it touches on themes of courage and loyalty in the context of warfare, the film is specifically about the historical realities of World War I, but its impact and artistic achievement remain timeless and universal.

My favs...

Saving Private Ryan
Full Metal Jacket
Platoon
Tigerland...I know its not full blown WAR film but it has war/drama elements that I think are good.

edit: missed one! Last Of The Mohicans.
