Platoon is way better than Full Metal Jacket ever was. Also We Were Soldiers was a good one.

Need to add "Born on the Fourth of July" and "Cadence" Though Cadence was set in Germany during Vietnam.  
Full Metal Jacket had the overwhelming prescence of R. Lee Ermey. His sheer magnitude and in your face make your life hell attitude, plus it being a Stanley Kubrick film makes it a fantastic film. Apocalypse now is a wonderful adaptation of the book Heart of Darkness. The first person narration done by Martin Sheen really gets you into the film. Using the PBR water skiing scene was very accurate of reports from the actual conflict. Born on the Fourth of July deals more with the psychological and physical issues that many service men and women had to deal with once they came back from the Jungle. I have never been in a war, but I would imagine that I would never be the same as before. Hamburger Hill boasts that it is the only factually true Vietnam movie made. Cadence teams up father and son duo Martin Sheen and Charlie Sheen, specifically in roles in which the elder Sheen loses his grip on sanity, and t

LOL Viper... It's easier to be confused at posts when it's your site than when you're at another... I don't know if he was being mean or just saracastic... I don't mind scarcasim. Smiley  I live by it in many situations! hehe  And I disagree... Platoon was a good movie but the first 1/4 of FMJ did it for me out of the movies and the last 1/4 of Apoc Now.  Some of the scenes in We Were Soldiers was also great...just haven't seen it since it hit DVD...reason I forgot about it initially.  I want to get a fight scene merged in with something like "All Along The Watchtower" or "Run Through The Jungle" ... kind of like Metallica's "One" or Godsmack's "Straight Out of Line" ... but from one of those movies. Smiley

OK back to station programming! hehe

new track:  Johnny Wright's "Hello Vietnam" ... Goodbye my sweetheart, hello Vietnam ... from Full Metal Jacket (The Beginning of the movie during the haircuts). Smiley  I like the song but I enjoy some old honky tonk stuff once in a while. hehe

What about "The Deer Hunter" That was huge! It is also the most disturbing in my opinion.

There's a few missed out, but I couldn't add them to the list Cry

The Deer Hunter - Russian Roulette scenes are unforgettable.  Real hard-hitting movie as you see these men through a life of near content to
sheer despair.

Born on 4th July - What a powerful film.  The bit where he's shouting the house down after he gets home.  That made me cry.  That Tom Cruise
knows emotion, man.

Casualties of War - Sean Penn, Michael J Fox.  Not the best Vietnam movie but it's cool.

Good Morning, Vietnam - It isn't the same, but you have to admit it's a very important vietnam movie.  The only one that really went into the
Vietnamese situation as they saw it themselves.

MASH - This was actually supposed to be set in Vietnam but people weren't happy so they added the bit at the beginning saying it's in the
pacific.  Useless Trivia!!
