You need to watch it on IMAX, only way to do it justice.  And don't be cheap and get corner seats, you need to sit in the middle.

Top 5 War Films?

1. Apocalypse Now
2. Paths of Glory
3. A Bridge Too Far
4. Zulu
5. The Great Escape

Shoehorn Casablanca in there somewhere if that counts as a war film but I'm not sure that it does.

Deer Hunter - good score to film however, there is no evidence the Viet Cong used prisoners for Russian Roulette

Longest Day - v good film but John Wayne ruined it

Saving Private Ryan - great opening sequence but let down by Spielberg soppiness

We Were Soldiers - along with Longest Day, historically the most accurate but incredibly boring and soppy

Bridge Over the River Kwai - classic

Dirty Dozen  :ROFL: - fun film

Gallipoli - watched bits of it, reasonable

Breaker Morant - never seen it

Dambusters - accurate but boring, dated by its effects

Reach For The Sky - never heard of it

Inglourious Basterds - Tarantino as Tarantino does.  Somehow he always captures the imagination

The Iron Cross - is that the one with James Colburn.  Quite good except for the slow mo action sequence

Das Boot - Oh yes, great TV series, claustrophobic.  Great way to learn German too

Kelly's Heroes - Hehe, loved it, loved the western style interpretation.  Some of the suttel jokes are v good.
