    Everybody talking about Saving Private Ryan. This is great movie.
    But i think Platoon and Casualties Of War are good to. Specially i liked the last one.

    IMO "Saving Private Ryan" is way overrated
    I've always loved Paths of Glory

    Although Saving Private Ryan is a great film, My favorite has got to be Braveheart. Although it is not as intense as Private Ryan, it is quite powerful.

    For a slightly different take.. comedic... I would have to say Kelly's Heroes.

    "We got our own ammunition.
    It's filled with paint.
    When we fire it, it makes pretty pictures.
    It scares the hell out of people.
    We got a loudspeaker. When we go
    into battle, we play music.. very loud.
    It kind of... ...calms us down."

    Can't believe nobody's mentioned "Bridge on the River Kwai"
    To suggest anything else besides it or Das Boot is sacrilegious!

    Sure, Braveheart is an excellent movie (one of my top five) but it's greatness is not as a "war" movie.
