Does Boondock Saints count? ;-) There are a lot of guns and blood and stuff :-D God I love that movie.

Do you mean Life is Beautiful? That was a pretty good movie, but another one like Pearl Harbour that was more of a drama and not a lot about war. It was set in the early to mid-40's (WWII obviously) if that's the one you're talking about.

Apocalypse Now is my all time fav. war movie - followed closely by Full Metal Jacket.

Can Dead Presidents count as a war movie? that was pretty good too.

The alltime worst war movie? Gotta be Glory with Sylvester Stallone as an American playing a soccer goalie in a prisoner camp. 8-o :-/

I think you mean "Victory". "Glory" is the movie about an all-black regiment in the Civil War, starring Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman, and Denzel Washington. Denzel won an Oscar for his performance.

Hmm Broderick, Freeman, Washington... I feel like signing the Sesame Street song "One of these things are doing their own thing" which one just doesn't seem to belong? }:-) Glory was a pretty good movie, and I think Rambo was the only war movie I saw Sly in.

The Great Escape is IMO the greatest movie of all time.
Also...I've kept my sig the same for about a month now to spread the word on 'No Man's Land' one of the best movies I have ever seen and one that makes me stop and think at random times even now over a year after I first saw it. 'No Mans Land' is a Serbian film about a Bosnian soldier and Serbian soldier who are stuck in the same trench together between their armies. Neither can leave because the opposing army will shoot them down so they are stuck for a few days together in that trench. The whole time they are growing closer to one another but at the same time constantly are wary of the other and looking for a way to attack the other. I won't kill the story but I will warn that it is in subtitles for those of you who just caaaaaaaaaan't deal with that. It has a lot of action but also a lot of...downtime that is more cerebral than anything else. Anyway I hope some of you read this and just give it a chance. Trust me you won't be sorry you did.
