That's what i'm saying. A-Now, despite being set during Vietnam, isn't really a "war film." The real motifs/themes of the story have nothing to do with the war.

Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Yes. yes it is. Great sig.
I hope to god it's not Facebook now. Although I did see a thread called "bump when pooping "so it might very well be on its way
That thread is almost as old as the board itself.
The thin red line should be in the discussion probably
Excellent movie. When you see the Omaha beach landing you're like...my God, that's probably what it looked like.
The coward pissed me off to no end
That scene makes me tear up!
There's no good way to make into a movie, but some WW1 trench warfare had to be scary as hell. You live in a puddle, if you dare show your head above the bunker you'd be shot. Add in chemical warfare, gangreen, and trench foot and there had to be some gnarly images.
The scene on Ohama when the dude is looking for his arm, finds it and runs off is crazy.
Full metal jacket, blackhawk down, thin red line
FMJ is the shiz.
How can you shoot women or children? Easy...you just don't lead 'em so much.
The Deer Hunter
My grandfather was part of that platoon.
Ugh, you can't be serious on a thin red line.... that movie blows ass hard
I do love BHD, FMJ is solid but nothing special for me
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
The pic of Reuben and that drunk chick makes me
lulz, solid photo shop for sure
There were a few great ones from Tiger Droppings when the pics of him sleeping hit the net
I agree with thin red line, but when my pop told me stories, it was A LOT different. Dad was a tank commander and was on the tarmac twice, but was recalled and never went to Vietnam, thank God....
I feel for those people, man.... Used to have a regular where I bartended that was a vet and he was beyond shot. Very sad....
Of course, I just didn't care for the movie
Anything with George Clooney in it can suck my ass, cause Im not interested
My top 3
SPR, Valkyrie, We were Soldiers
The great escape is underrated as well
We were soldiers was solid for sure
Tears of the Sun is one of my favorites
The part where dude gets shot and says something like " they caught me sleeping sir, fuk that.... wrap it up tight, get me back in this shit "
We Were Soldiers sucked IMO, but The Great Escape is an absolute classic. I never even saw Valkyrie.
I'm really surprised no one has pulled out Pearl Harbor yet...
Not a Clooney fan, but liked Ocean's Eleven. Great fiction. zero probability that anybody pulls that off....
Pretty sure you are joking on the Pearl Harbor so nice one, can't say it sucked btw on we were soldiers
I can dig not liking it, but it didn't suck
