    Huge fan of all war movies.
    Apocalypse Now Redux imo.

    Hamburger Hill should be in there for mention.

    But at the end of the day, saving private ryan is probably the best.

    The first 15 minutes of that movie makes it hard to argue.

    Lol.
    I love that damn movie. So over the top. Historians were furious about it.

    Mel Gibson still runs that flag across the battlefield wrecking that ass...and it's awesome.

    Black hawk down is probably second and none of you mentioned it yet.


    13 hours is great too.

    BHD has gotta be a modern era top ten.
    13 hours I've seen so many times I can't recall.
    For some strange reason, it was only playing at select theatres during Hillary's campaign...

    I liked that, still haven't seen 2.

    Brothers also, although less war more at home.
    For that matter, Home of The Brave with S.Jackson, J.Biehl, 50 cent etc., these 2 deal more with coming home.

    I know people dislike Hurt Locker, but I fall asleep to it.
