I just watched the awesome film Saving Private Ryan, and I realized, how i love these historical war films. (No i`m not a history geek) There is something special in each of these films! Also i just love that film where Mel Gibson ( oh he kicks butt ) played the role of William Wallace (forgot the name of the film). Agree or Disagree??

rambo is the best war movie
Rambo is bullsh!t. I hate movies like that, their so stupid. It gives such a negative portrayal of the military.
Anyway, I like historically accurate movies...I'm a military enthusiast. My favorite military films (not in this order) are: Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Flags Of Our Fathers, Windtalkers, We Were Soldiers...And Young, Jarhead, Full Metal Jacket (Only the boot camp part), Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood Of War, and Behind Enemy Lines (the one with Owen Wilson).
Full Metal Jacket.
You'd better flush out your head, new guy. This isn't about freedom; this is a slaughter. If I'm gonna get my balls blown off for a word, my word is "oontang".
Probably best not to quote that movie to much, but it's still a great watch.
well the only movies about history i liked were the old material arts movies.. like jackie chan, bruce lee.. and of course 300
Ha 300, although based on an actual event, was far from even close to portraying what actually happened. Although, it was an alright movie.
I enjoy watching some war movies every once in a while, but the thing is, they never do come close to showing an individual just what 'war' is really like. However, I suppose it is alright if you are watching say movie for the entertainment, as Saving Private Ryan was a great movie.
My favorite war movie would probably have to be "Flags of our Fathers". It was based on a true event, world war 2. The action was amazing. I loved it!
300, is the best.
I don't remember that quote from FMJ. When did they say that?
