    Have you watched The hurt locker? If not go and watch it and come back to tell me your opinion. Also Inglorious basterds and Saving private Ryan are good war movies.

    There are two documentaries on Netflix that were very well done. One was called Restrepo and the sequel is called Korengal. Both are set in Afghanistan.

    Re: War Film Recommendations

    Oh, man. So many. Interestingly, two of my favorite war films were released in the same year (1998), and they could not be more different. The two films are SAVING PRIVATE RYAN and THE THIN RED LINE.

    RYAN has the most heart-pounding opening sequence I've ever seen. Just absolutely unbelievable. I still remember sitting in the theater and my chest was heaving, I was breathing so hard. White-knuckle stuff, man. As for THE THIN RED LINE, it definitely has some battle sequences, but it's far more philosophical, quiet. Both films are three hours long, but both are worth the time. Rounding out my top five, in no particular order:

    5. SAVING PRIVATE RYAN (WWII)
    4. THE THIN RED LINE (WWII)
    3. FULL METAL JACKET (Vietnam)
    2. THE HURT LOCKER (Iraq)
    1. GLORY (Civil War)

    Actually, GLORY probably is my favorite film on this list. Absolutely incredible, with amazing performances by Denzel and Morgan Freeman. Not gonna lie. I got a little emotional. Haha. Enjoy!

    Re: War Film Recommendations

    I would have to second the Band of Brothers. I know that it is not a movie, but that is even more the reason why I would recommend it. It is a great series, and every episode is like its own little movie so you just have more material to work with. If I had to go with a movie, though, I would say Saving Private Ryan is up there, but I would also go classic here and say Deer Hunter, or maybe if you want a lighter side of things Good Morning Vietnam. Good stuff, and thanks for sharing.
