With Troy now playing, we should pick our favorite war films, Troy doesn't count, it is too new to consider. Also, for this list, Lord of the Rings is an adventure quest, not a war movie, even though it has fantasic battle scenes Red's five: 1. Full Metal Jacket (1987) -- The best of the Vietnam movies. R. Lee Ermey steals every scene he is in. 2. Braveheart (1995) -- The best of the medieval war epics. The Scots mooning the English army en masse is classic. 3. Battleground (1949) -- The best of the early WWII movies. The 101st Airborne at Bastogne. 4. Zulu (1963) -- The best British war movie. Real Zulu's make it authentic. The King of the Zulus played his grandfather in the film. 5. Dr. Strangelove (1964) -- The best war comedy. Peter Sellers is great playing three roles. "You can't fight in here! This is the War Room!" OK, let the lobbying for "Patton" and "Saving Private Ryan" begin. The best of the modern WWII movies, it's hard to leave them off. Maybe I should have done a top 10 . . . I known Bengal B will.
