First half of Full Metal Jacket.
Great cast. Great score. Great movie,
No real action, just a good story.
Bridge on The River Kwai.
A Bridge Too Far. Also by Attenborough.
Not a huge John Wayne fan, but really enjoy "The Longest Day" and "They Were Expendible." As for newer movies, I was surprised how good "Fury" was. Also, although it isn't the typical "war" movie, if you haven't checked out "Conspiracy" with Kenneth Branagh, a flick about the Nazis devising the Final Solution, you should. It is haunting how those men sat around that table, casually eating and drinking, and did what they did.
Come and See needs to be seen.
Hope and Glory. To Hell and Back.
Battle For The Planet Of The Apes
