Topic: And Favorite War Movies Are...

Apocalypse Now is the best that ever will be made, no doubt. So freaking INTENSE!!!

Passchendaele, a canadian one which is extremely troubling.

Home Of The Brave H3LL this is terribly amazing. AND it's got Jessica SEXY Biel, CHristina Hot Ricci and Samuel L. Motherfucker Jackson. A nice piece with awesome characters.

Saving Private Ryan is woaaahhh. Tom Hanks delivers like mad into this one. Another Spielberg Masterpiece.

A Very Long Engagement by Jeunet so it's awesome like ALL his damn stuff. Audrey Tautou is great as always, Marion Cotillard is way cool and my dear Jodie Foster is naked. Worth seeing it only for that. lol

Atonement, not really a War movie but the scenes when he goes to war are just great.

Battle Of Britain, an old but great one about the R.A.F. and the defense of London Bombings.

Up to you now...

Re: And Favorite War Movies Are...

Casualties of War from 1989 (about US War crimes in Vietnam) and City Of Life and Death from 2009 (About Japanese War Crimes during their occupation of China, specifically Nanking, during WW2) are my two favourite 'war' films. They left the biggest emotional mark on me, particularly City of Life and Death, as they both very effectively explored the terrible and disturbing results of crimes that result from wars de-humanizing effects on all those involved.

Both film's subject matter are the closest to true horror I have come across in a 'non-horror' film yet. Very affecting.

Yup I'm with you 100%, but I'll add Dr. Strangelove, if it counts, on the list.

BLACK BOOK [2007]

Oh man what a fantastic Verhoven one. Insane story and damn, Carice Van Houten NAKED, nothing more to say... lol

Re: And Favorite War Movies Are...

I avoid war movies since I got out of the service, not the least because I was in combat and don't like to be reminded of it.  I made the mistake of watching Saving Private Ryan when it first came out because of the all the hype surrounding it, but that shit was too realistic.  I was messed up for a week after seeing that thing.

Re: And Favorite War Movies Are...

I can't say I blame you for that Sir. And even for a non-soldier like me Saving Ryan was extremely realistic so I can understand a bit how you reacted.

Seriously, ALL of you soldiers need to receive a thousand of medals.

If only I was President. lol
