    I’m going Saving Private Ryan. The beginning and the end of that movie brings tears to my eyes every single time. Whatchall got ?

    Can we count First Blood as a war movie ?

    I’ll allow it but majority opinion will rule I guess.

    My grandfather, who fought in the war, told me that Saving Private Ryan was the most realistic WWII movie he’s ever seen.

    And here I was starting to like you after your Napoleon Dynamite love. You can’t be serious ?

    Independence day is a collection of the worst actors of their generation.
    I like We Were Soldiers, SPR, Patriot, BlackHawk Down

    I've rewatched it several times. There aren't too many good ones out there so I was trying to think of ones I rewatched. Damn Norris don't go to the intolerant side

    kindof odd this comes up. I had a daydream during the game yesterday that JG's teammates pillowcased him like in Full Metal Jacket

    My intention is not to be intolerant. However, I think you are the only person I have ever seen put The Patriot in anything that was "Best of".

    So, apologies if I came across as crass.

    i wasn't being serious at you. But i didn't think it was that bad. You know you've wanted to take a hatchet to a dozen or so people before. I did and it felt great!
