Best military movie ever?
If you stop watching after Boot Camp, yes.
Apocalypse now, redux

Not even top 10
You are such a nerd Weedline

The 2nd half is bad. But they nailed the first half
Not top 10?
Saving Private Ryan and Apocalypse Now are better IMO
Redux is too drawn out for me. The original is much better, imo. But I agree that this is the best movie set in a war environment. As far as a full blown war movie goes, Platoon.
It's on Encore right now, FWIW. I love this movie

Saving Private Ryan
YOU OWE ME FOR ONE JELLY DONUT
"I don't know but ive been told...Eskimo pussy is mighty cold"
We Were Soldiers
Black Hawk Down
Tears Of The Sun
Saving Private Ryan
Enemy At The Gates
The Last Samurai
The Last of the Mohicans
Body of Lies
All better imo
I wonder how legit this movie is compared to basic. I bet it's pretty close.
It depends on what you're looking to get out of a war movie, imo. Band of Brothers shows the war and camaraderie developed during WWII better than anything I've ever seen. However, something like Apocalypse Now shows how dark the human soul can get when pushed, the same with Platoon. It's not surprising that WWII movies are often shown as pieces of what war looks like with a general feeling of triumph (at least in the American perspective) and camaraderie, while Vietnam movies venture into something much darker involving the nature of man, and the horrors man can commit when push to the absolute limit.
I can't remember the title maybe y'all can help me out...mr president maybe but during one scene the find one guy and the enemy had cut off dudes junk and stuck it in his mouth...was all like holy chit first time I saw that
Glory was an excellent war movie too. Matthew Broderick in his prime + young Denzel.
We did the soap in a sock instead of in a towel. It hurts them way more than they show here.
That would suck so bad
R Lee Ermy was the drill instructor at Paris Island. He was the technical advisor for Lou Gossit Jr who was supposed to be the drill sgt, but at the last minute Gossit backed out for fear of being typecast after doing An Officer and a Gentleman so Kubrick put Ermy in the role.
Only good part after boot camp is "How do you kill Women and Children?", "Easy, you don't lead 'em as much!"
The rest is, meh or a shade worse than "meh"
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
You gotta give it to the Marines. They put their people in harms way an make no qualms about it. It's like they enjoy the fact they are the first ones in.
Its funny to me how much you sweat military men, ten bucks says you would let a service men have sex with your butt
