  • Top 7 War Movies?

    Just wanted to know what is your Top 7 war movies. I know people have different views on what the best is and I want to hear them:)

    Mine are the Following.

    1) Full Metal Jacket: Self-explanitory, too many "one liners" to think about
    2) Tae Guk Gi: Its a Korean War movie that is the equivilant to Saving Private Ryan.
    3) Band Of Brothers: I know that this isnt a movie, but I would count it as one of the finest piece of film ever made,
    4) Saving Private Ryan: Truly the finest Generation EVER!!
    5) Black Hawk Down: Depicts a NEW kind of warfare.
    6) Hamburger Hill: Lots of intense fighting and shows the sacrifices for one little chunk of land.
    7) Patton: Just Awesome...

        In no Particular order:

        - All Quiet on the Western Front
        - We Were Soldiers (Once and Young)
        - Hamburger Hill
        - The Guns of Navarone
        - Glory
        - A Midnight Clear
        - Stalingrad
        - Cross of Iron
        - FMJ

        I know thats eight :P

        I love gritty and realistic war movies and I hate ones like the recent Pearl Harbor. If you have the same taste, I highly recommend renting one of the movies I listed if you haven't seen them.

        I just realized I haven't watched a good war movie on my new TV (50" 1080i). Mmmm, decision decisions...

            Yea, it's hard to pick just seven. Why seven by the way Dirt? Seems like a strange number to choose.

                  Since watching this movie I've feared waking up after a party with a tattoo on certain unmentionables.

                      It is the rule in war, if ten times the enemy's strength, surround them; if five times, attack them;
                      if double, engage them; if equal, be able to divide them; if fewer, be able to evade them; if weaker, be able to avoid them.
