  • Good War Movies

    I looked around and seen we dint have one of these. My wife is gone till next Thursday which gives me plenty of nag-free time to watch my War/Classic Action movies. I have some of the classics and some new ones:

    Patton
    Platoon
    Saving Private Ryan
    We where Soldiers
    Band of Brothers
    BHD
    Forest Gump (best movie ever)
    Basic
    Rambo 1 2 3 (you know you like them)

    and a few others. Any body else got a good movie of this type that might be good to watch. Could make some great movie selections and discussion.
    that sounds like a good idea trooper.

      Full Metal Jacket is a classic. The Alamo Drafthouse theater is playing Kubrick's films in full re-mastered goodness this summer. I really hope that one makes the cut.

        The original of "Three Kings" was good IMO.

        My all time fav is Band of Brothers, but I think it would have been better if set as a story about a British troop.
        Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

          Check out Jarhead. It wasn't great but its worth a rent.

          Burning spies is cool.

            The Dirty Dozen
            Green Berets
            Platoon (Mentioned)
            Full Metal Jacket (Mentioned) of course, one of my all-time favourites :)

            Can't think of many others, aside from the already well knowns like the two I mentioned up there and others like Saving Private Ryan, BHD and the like.

                    Black Hawk Down is by far one of my favourite films of all time.

                    Cross of Iron.

                    The Longest Day.

                      Man there are some great flicks here! Enemy at the Gates was an awesome movie, I can't believe I forgot about it.
                      (gets the notepad out) Time to go bargin-bin diving (although, Enemy at the Gates isn't old and I don't think it's bargin bin material yet) :)
                      Da Boot was a good one..
                      The Great Escape aswell

                      So many oldies out there!

                            Well this might not fall exactly in this catagory but a good Submarine movie is "Das Boat" and you can't forget "Midway" and "Tora Tora Tora"
