Apocalypse Now! is possibly my favourite film of all time, o at least one of them, but in my heart, I never class it as a war film. It's "The Heart of Darkness" set in vietnam to me. It's not as if there was much war about it other then the helicopter bit and the fact it's set during a war, hehe.
Loved platoon. Pretty much based off Oliver Stone's experiences, good soundtrack too.
Black Hawk Down started good, but I found it getting a bit tedious at the end. Enjoyed it for the most part though.
ONCE were soldiers was naff. Despite a great performance from Mel Gibson (apparently he was exactly how the bloke he was acting as really was) I just couldn't believe in him. Too big a celebrity. Same for Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan, which uined it for me. Shaving Ryan's Privates on the other hand....
