    I'll pick The Great Escape as my favorite classic war movie.

    A bit off topic, but for a cold war movie I like "Dr. Strangelove or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb".

    With Peter Sellers, Slim Pickins, what a great satire.

    We've been doing so much,for so long,with so little, that now we can do almost anything, with nothing at all.

    My three favorites were:
    Platoon
    We were soldiers
    Full metal jacket

    Saving Private Ryan was good, just did'nt care for the way they did the photography on it,everything seemed kinda blurry, had to watch that one twice.
    Another good one was Enemy at the gates....think that's the name...

    It was WWII and they were on a ship and they got lost or something and ended up in a different world somewhere.

    Now its possible that I may have had to many beers when I saw it, but I think that is how it went, anyone remember it?
    You sure you ain't talkin about Kirk Douglass in the movie Final Countdown?

    Forgot about Enemy at the Gates-a WWII hero movie from the Russian side

    The photography in Saving Private Ryan was done like that to mimic a movie camera of that day- to stay true to the time

    Also another good Vietnam movie is 84 Charlie Mopic

    Oh for those Saving Private Ryan fans, did anyone else want to strangle Uppum at the end of the movie during the city fight scene?

    How about "A Bright Shining Lie"?

    Not a ton of action, but a great true story
