Best war movies

Saving Private Ryan
Catch 22
Apocalypse Now

What are your favorites? And if anybody says "Thin Red Line," I'm gonna have to get out my AK47.

Patton - one of the best individual performances of all time.

SPR - gets second place. the photography technology advacements showing the horrors of war is its chief accomplishment.

having been to war, i evaluate so-called war movies relative to reality.

My husband, the war-movie fan, can watch "Midway," "Tora Tora Tora" and "No Man is an Island" over and over and over. And then there's the heart-stopper: "Platoon." I'm particularly fond of "Patton" because my dad fought in WWII.
