    I remember watching "Saving Private Ryan" in the theatre. There were a bunch of people in the theatre, most of them chatting before the movie (and through the credits and the opening sequence) but as soon as the bullets started flying in the D-day sequence, the whole room became silent. Watching that movie in a room with a hundred or so different people was one of the most harrowing experiences of my lifetime. There may or may not have been a better war movie made, but not one that affected me on a personal level like that one did on that particular night. It will be a long time before I have another experience like that, regardless of how much I enjoy a film.

    Best:

    Saving Private Ryan by far, this is probably one of the best movies of all time period in my eyes, very telling.

    Full Metal Jacket, hilarious.

    Good Morning Vietnam, funny, and pretty good.


    Worst:

    Windtalker, for how recent this movie is, it was probably the worst i've ever seen. The acting was terrible, the special effects were ho-hum, and they made everything overly dramatic.

    Full Metal Jacket...no movie really portrays the duality of war like it does, IMO.

    SAVING PRIVATE RYAN... and if u do not agree... i will kill u... simply cos i dont believe that any man alive( or dead for that matter... and if they dont agree... i will kill them again....) can deny its almost holy and unjust greatness.. it is in my eyes the contemporary monalisa or the last supper type of mastepiece....

    i think ive seen it...
    umm.. maybe 300 times...
    i watched it so much i had to buy another dvd of it cos the first one got worn down...
    i even cried the first few times i saw it...

    second is we were soldiers... and like 3 days ago i had a craving for it all day... and so i watched it twice... and after... i felt hollow... like the moment when u compelete an assignment/ prpject that has been on ur mind for months... and once it is done.. u dont know even how to feel... why to feel...

    but my third fave... which none of u have mentioned... is enemy at the gates...
    i looooove that movie... and the head shot when the old fella jumps across 2 buildings... AWSUM!!!

    It's not a movie per se but if Band of Brothers is included than it's hard to beat.

    If were talking movies only then I have to go with Das Boot.

    1. Full metal jacket- really great movie
    2. Resevoir dogs- not sure if this is considered a war flick, but its damn brutal, and a really good film.
    3. Lord of War- awesome flick

    No, Resevoir Dogs definatly isn't a war flick.

    War flicks generally have wars in them.
