陳綺貞 2010 [夏季練習曲] 巡迴演唱會 Cheer Concert 13 Nov 2010 MAX Pavilion@Singapore Expo
If given a choice to choose only 1 as ur top choice, what wld u choose?
i'd go for PLATOON.. classic man..
Agree with bloody Hamburger Hill!
Army Daze? Hahaha.... Pls dont make me laugh leh. hehe...
In overall, I do love the plot made by the Officer. [The Great Raid] 120 soldiers, 1 die (doctor). 500 POWs, 1 die. Really love the entire stuff. This will be my top list.
Other then that, Band of Brothers (love) hee
all u want to know ...
Boss say:"Now i shall downgrade u all2 $90 flat for OT!"
I say:"better ask blanga do..." :bsmilie:
Are you sure Clint Eastwood starred in Hamburger Hill?
Saving Private Ryan has to be my all time favourite - for not only the plot line but the realism.
Band of Brothers isn't a movie but a TV series so it doesn't really count but it too rocks for the realism and the authenticity of the equipment used.
I dislike war movies that ruin the realism e.g. The Battle of the Bulge (that used american tanks thinly dressed up as panzars). Even many Vietnam movies are guilty of this, e.g. using Twin Huey's (a twin engined Huey Chopper introduced in 1968) for pre 1968 Vietnam scenes.
For me War films have to be accurate to the 'T'.
Platoon and Apocalypse Now (esp the Redux version) are also on my list of great war movies.
A bit of trivia - Full Metal Jacket a film of the Vietnam conflict was filmed entirely in Britain-
Like most of Kubrick's films.
And the series Band of Brothers was also filmed entirely in Britain (not by Kubrick of course).
And a movie that I laughed myself silly was Good Morning Vietnam. Watched the uncensored version in Msia on rental video before it was released in Sg back in 1988. The version shown in the Sg Cinemas was so cut up and sanitised it wasn't funny anymore (not that the original was that "crude" to begin with). Can't believe they actually dubbed over the word 'pissy' to something else. The movie didn't do very well in Sg bec not many people got the jokes. You have to know a bit of american military lingo and history to get some of the jokes. e.g. KP = Kitchen Police (soldiers assigned to kitchen duties like peeling potatoes - usu as punishment - like having to do guard duty for us in the SAF).
Women esp will not appreciate this movie very much.

This one is definitely a must see:
Ice Cold in Alex - excellent acting and plot by John Mills
come to think of it - how come no one mention Letters fm Iwo Jima and Flag of our Fathers? i missed these 2 films when it was shown. mebbe wait for the director's cut DVDs.

Would we consider Ran a war movie?
If not, so what I still love it. If yes, let's add it to the list
Full Metal Jacket
Three Kings (People tend to forget this movie, but looks at war from the current media-crazy angle that is quite interesting. Great visuals too.)
Anyone watched "Charge of the Light Brigade"? [/QUOTE]
There's two version, 1936 and 1968.

Lawrence of Arabia by David Lean (Oscars for best picture, best director plus a few others)
Zulu (Michael Caine's first film)
Master & commander: The far side of the world by Peter Weir (lots of oscar nomination but won two including cinematography)
Run Silent, Run Deep
From the American Civil War:-
Glory (Oscar winning performance by Denzel Washington for Best Supporting actor)
Gods & Generals
World War I:-
Gallipoli by Peter Weir (starring a yound Mel Gibson)
All Quiet on the Western Front (there are two versions, must watch both)

Not the fighting fighting type but worth watching:-
On the beach (about the last day of the world, after a global nuclear world)
Mister Roberts (based on a Tony Award winning play, starring Henry Fonda and with oscar winning performance by Jack Lemmon for best supporting actor. Rather funny but has a pacifist ending)
wah piang.. so many list... I got to take time to make the entire list out.. so that some war film lovers can look out for it. lol
there is now a Jap made war movie called Yamato. It is so well done by computer graphics.
