Black Hawk Down is the best war movie of all in my opinion. It's actually my favorite movie of all. I applaud you sir!

Other than that: Band of Brothers, We Were Soldiers (to an extent, I have issues with it's production vs the book), Lone Survivor (again to an extent, issues with the movie vs the actual story), The Pacific

  1. Avatar -- The final war between the Na'vi and humans was epic!
  2. Matrix: Revolutions -- Man vs. Machine until one man saves both sides.
  3. Troy -- Achilles vs. Hector. Nuff said.
  4. Behind Enemy Lines -- Two pilots fly over enemy territory, taking pictures of genocide. When their jet is shot down, its a fight for survival.
  5. Battleship -- Not many people like this, but its one of the best Navy sci-fi films I've ever seen.

Likewise (I've never picked a favorite movie, but it's always clumped with others in that potential top spot) and back at you.

No mention of the Thin Red Line yet? That's the definitive WW2 movie imo.

#23 Edited by Stevens61310 (189 posts) - - Show Bio

So many to choose from. And to narrow it down to 5? Hmmm--well here goes--

Saving Private Ryan

Apocalypse Now

Platoon

Black Hawk Down

The Dirty Dozen

These just did beat out out some of these--All Quiet On The Western Front, The Alamo, Kelly's Heroes, We Were Soldiers, The Longest Day, --Tora, Tora, Tora--

I almost added Schindler's List and Jakob the Liar. Even though these were set during WWII I'm not sure you can actually call them war films. And I just thought of The Pianist

#24 Posted by Dark_Vengeance_ (15138 posts) - - Show Bio

Saving private Ryan

Platoon

Full Metal Jacket

300

#25 Edited by marvel_dc_heroes_villains (139 posts) - - Show Bio

Hard to pick but probably

1: Apocalypse Now

2: Pianist

3: Saving Private Ryan

4: Black Hawk Down

5: Three Kings

Does Aliens count as a war movie?

@jayc1324: Really? Harry Potter takes two spaces on a war movies list?

#29 Posted by Jayc1324 (14186 posts) - - Show Bio

@marvel_dc_heroes_villains: all of star wars and the last two harry potters were supposed to take one spot each. I couldn't think of a fifth favorite since I'm not into war movies that much

That's what I was thinking when I re-read it... why...

Well.. to be fair, as a war film it was alright. Probably not top 5 material but stll. As a film overall it was pretty... sh*te.
