    I enjoy a good war flick. But as soon as someone starts singing or smoking out on a patrol, they become unrealistic and lame.

    Still I enjoy the old ones, too. Hell's Angels to The dirty dozen to Pvt. Ryan.

    Yeah, that's what you wanna watch.

    Not so much the glorification of the horrible shit it really is.

    great movie...

    I also enjoyed When We Were Soldiers but I can't watch it again because Mel is a douche...

    so i passed on Silver Strand for now and am in the middle of Behind Enemy Lines II: Axis of Evil.....although i can't relate to the intense combat scenes, much of the flashbacks to some of their training is familiar to me throughout my time enlisted....it's fun remembering the fun and joy lol

    Full Metal Jacket is my favorite war movoie. Some others I like are:

    Apocalypse Now
    Deer Hunter
