Re: good war movie?
How can anyone say Blackhawk Down is a good movie????!?!?! It is pathetic!!! seriously the most americanised, badly directed and most of all wooden acting ever seen since Lassie 3: Lassie Comes Home
Saving Private Ryan is a decent film but nothing special...Spielberg got all this hype over the movie simply becuase of the opening beach scene...people were screaming how "revolutionary...breath taking etc" it was?!!?!?! RIDICULOUS...sure it was alright but cmon hell will freeze over before Spielberg did anything "breathtaking"...if people wanted to see amazing and revolutionary camera work get out: The Man With A Movie Camera, and witness where Spielberg got his ideas from...
Also the ending to Saving Private Ryan was hilariously corny, a tear-jerking salute at the white crosses...
Now for truly great war movies hire: Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now, Downfall, Shindlers List, The Pianist and of course the great, original, and only All Quiet On The Western Front
Into my arms, O Lord
