also if you are talkin best war flicks these two come to mind as some of the best Kelly's Heroes and Dirty Dozen. both are classic war films.
I love Dirty Dozen! Alkaholic pretty much hit all the good ones...watched Deer Hunter the other day....such an intense movie!
I recommend Paths of Glory...directed by Kubrick and stars Kirk Douglas. Not too gory or anything, but it's a great story and it's filmed really well (B&W...lots of good shadows and stuff).
Anything Kubric does is worth a watch...and leave the LSD at home kiddos, there's plenty here to trip on without any drugs. that man was crazy.
But like homeless said, Sam Mendez directing makes me want to go see this. You know it is going to be a quality piece of art. Not some piece of crap made to get easy money. It will be thoughtful and thought provoking at the same time i am sure.
But isn't it a little early for a social commentary on the Iraqi war? I don't know.
Hey RW, what's the deal with "jarhead" why is that a derrogatory term for a marine?
By the way, Apocalypse Now is the best war movie ever.
