    i have only seen 4 of those listed, so I won't vote.

    But I am intrigued by your use of the term "motion picture"

    :rofl: that gave me a good belly laugh! :hat:

    the 4 i have seen are:

    Full Metal Jacket

    Apocalypse Now

    Born on the 4th of July

    Good Morninf (sic) Viet Nam

    I liked the first 3, with the first 2 being my favs.

    I guess Apocalypse Now wins.

    Apocolypse now, Full Metal Jacket is a close 2nd.

    Charlie Sheen kind of ruins Platoon, imo.
