This just might be the greatest movie ever. Thumbs up if you agree.
Probably. The war scenes are unfathomable to me.
Yes but I can't stand the scene where the knife is slowly going into the dude
Upham just might be the biggest pussy ever. I hate that scene too.
Meh, makes it more realistic for me.
Not everybody can be a badass.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
We can't all be like the Dutch boy. Just not fair!
Haha, I know. I'm not saying I liked the wuss, just saying he makes the rest look better by comparison.
I like how the only guy the coward kills is the kraut who had surrendered. Low class move from the guy who had done absolutely nothing positive for the group as a whole before that happened.
Upham is a loser for real. I would have taken care of buisness.
My Uncle said they had a guy like Upham in Vietnam. He died the second day on the ground.

Definitely my favorite war movie I've seen.
Not the GOAT in film though.
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
we watched SPR in a capstone course i took my last semester that studied the film. it was pretty awesome dissecting the film and studying some of the interviews that Spielberg and the crew did explaining the rhetoric within the film.
curious why someone downvoted this.
Must be butthurt or hate Murica.

Not a fan. The opening scene was well done but the movie was full of typical speilberg garbage, trying at every turn to tug on the heartstrings. Not a fan of Speilberg in general.
Which war movies do you like better?
Sad to think someone who just wasn't cut out for it was sent and died. So heavy. Just an American kid bleeding out in a field in Vietnam.
You nailed it Doak.

Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
I've always been a little less enthusiastic than others about that one. Sheen was very good, not Brando at his best obviously. I like Full Metal Jacket a lot as well.
Apocalypse Now is the closest thing to being the GOAT in that genre, but despite its setting it isn't a pure *war film.*
Thumbs up if you agree? Is tBB Facebook now?
Saving Private Ryan is a fantastic movie though. In my Top 3.
Awesome movie...It always makes me appreciate what they did. I also love Black Hawk Down
Meh. Apocalypse Now is Top 3 or 4 in that Genre, but I like other war movies ahead of it. JMO though.
