    Blackhawk Down and Saving Private Ryan are probably my two favorites. Apocalypse Now was awesome too.

    I'm reading Jarhead right now. Just started, so I'm not very far in, but his tone is not "happy"

    "Always with them negative waves Moriarty, always with them negative waves." That was my favorite movie as a kid. Still watch it every time it comes on. My other favorite is not a movie but a miniseries and was great... Band of Brothers.

    Excuse my humble opinion, but that movie is by far the biggest piece of **** of a movie about the military service and my beloved Corps to ever darken a theatre.:mad:

    everybody has a different opinion about movies. personally I know nothing about what its like in the real service so I cant really say anything about that, I just thought it had a good story.
