    i don't have a favorite war movie, per se, but rather a comment about war movies in general. especially the ones that focused on ww2 and more specifically, the us vs the japanese. notice how the americans almost always win? (except for pearl harbor... but that seems an exception.) ever wonder why?

    well, review those movies carefully... i'll let you in on a secret.







    it was the soundtrack! see, every time the japanese start closing in on the americans, the soundtrack gets all loud and suspenseful. the soundtrack gives them away every time! american destroyer... ba-dump. japanese sub... Ba-DUMP. every time. so there you have it. ^^

    Picking an all time favorite is very hard for me. There are several classics but some just really stand out. My all time favorite depiction of World War II was actually a TV mini-series, produced by Steven Spielburg and Tom Hanks, called Band Of Brothers. Anybody else here a fan of it?

    Way too broad a catagory. There just so many "war films" becase war is a easy conflict to define.

    How about favorite battle scenes?

    Helm's Deep anyone? That's a fun one.

    Spartacus, when the Roman legion is coming over the hill. Great scene and accurate to Roman tactics.

    I'd say Band of Brothers, though this is a mini series. Other than that it is a tie between Black Hawk Down and We Were Soldiers.

    Why? Maybe its the one soldier that keeps clicking his wooden teeth.

    And yeah. the Music always gives them away.

    Saving Private Ryan best WWII with honorable mention to Bridge on the River Kwai.
    Full Metal Jacket for Vietnam War movie.
    All Quiet on the Western Front for best WWI movie.
    M*A*S*H* for best Korean war movie.
    Maybe the Patriot for best revolutionary war movie.
    Glory for best civil war movie.
    Braveheart for best non U.S. war movie.

    Hmmm... any other wars?

    For me it's between the Dirty Dozen, or The Big Red One. I like old school films

    I like the "A few good men" movies. The Guns of Naverone and Where Eagles Dare being my favorites. The First Dirty Dozen I have to say I have never seen. Shame, I know.

    Bridge on the river kwai
    The big red one
    platoon

    and it must be noted gladiator, because after seeing the opening scene of that (despite the wearing stirrups bit) I thought to myself "if i was in a battle and saw greek fire raining down on me I would have ran!" I really had no idea what a moral breaker greek fire was before that

    Gladiator wasn't really a war movie but it did rock nuts. I wish they would make a movie based on the God Of War game series. That would be so EPIC!
