I have: Apocolypse Now, Platoon, We Were Soldiers, Full Metal Jacket and I've seen Hamburger Hill (need to get on DVD)

you guys are good at this stuff so thx in advance.

"Ultimate"-Guitar is the worst website on the internet. Polluted with unintelligent mongoloids.

Apocalypse Now is an amazing film. Full Metal Jacket and the Deer Hunter are also very good.

Good Morning Vietnam is quite good, though it doesnt have much in the way of fighting like Full Metal Jacket or Platoon does.

How come no one has mentioned Apocalypse Now?


Thats because this is suggestions for films to get, I already have Apocolypse Now, huhhhhhhhhhhhh read the first post properly before commenting. Edit: made worse be the fact you have a PS3 (xbox 360 is better, but this is off topic and is for another thread)

Battening on huge seaworms in his sleep;
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

looks like you got most of the good ones.

I'll just add 'Born on the Fourth of July', great film.

Also, if you do get apocalypse now, I find the newer version 'Apocalypse now: Redux' flows better. The original is just too long and it seems disjointed in places.

My favorite Nam movie has to be Platoon. It's epic...and to think I found it in the 5 dollar bin at Wal-Mart.

Redux is pretty warped. Even more so than the original. The part when Martin Sheen is smoking Ganja with the naked French woman is pretty fucked up.

Casualties of War. Amazing is an appropriate word for it.

I just find it flows better and the warped feel kinda fits with it. I mean the whole idea is that the US government convince willard that colonel kurtz has gone mad, and up until the end this is what willard believes. He takes the same journey that kurtz took and the warped scenes give the veiwer a bit of an idea of what kurtz went through and why he really defected (horrors of war etc...)

Is it jus' me or is "Hamburger Hill" like a made for video movie?


It did get a theatrical release, but from what I understand it was pretty low budget. Pretty good movie though.
