F.M.J. Is pretty good (Full Metal Jacket)

But i gotta go with Band Of Brothers....last night i see where they have a collectors edition with all 5 original shows WITH B.O.B. PACIFIC edition. I hope satan claws is feeling generous :D

Where does one begin? ... We Were Soldiers, Band of Brothers, the Pacific, Patton, Kelley's Heroes, Black Hawk Down, Memphis Belle, Schindler's List, Defiance, Big Red One, Red Dawn, A bridge too Far and the list could go on and on ...

1 movie I would add to the list even though it is science fiction is Battle Los Angeles.

We were soldiers and Black hawk down as good as they are do little but PIZZ ME OFF TO NO END!!! I guess thats a testament to the quality...Big red one is pretty dern awesome in its own right.

RED DAWN!!! Road House was on the other night and the wife and I were trying to name off all the GREAT, quality movies Patrick Swayze played in and for whatever reasons Red Dawn didnt come up....not for lack of quality...but simply the list is SO long!

"The Big Red One" is right up there in my book. There are too many that are outstanding to just name one. Most of my favorites have already been noted.

I also nominate "Glory" and "The Patriot".

Saving Private Ryan
Where Eagles Dare
Great Escape
Apocalypse Now
Uncommon Valor

Red Dawn, We Were Soldiers (although my Uncle says it was little off ;) ).

"The Hurt Locker" made a couple good points but really pissed me off! In real life Johnny Five and CSAMM gets used to detonate IEDs toooooooo much to lose some dumbass because he walked right up on a hot 155mm round!

Saving private Ryan, We were soldiers, Pearl harbor, FMJ, just to name a few.
