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!!


I thought about Deer Hunter a few weeks ago & totally forgot about Casualties, I even have that movie!!  I did have Goo

Platoon is way better than Full Metal Jacket ever was. Also We Were Soldiers was a good one.
Read the book "We Were Soldiers Once... And Young" by Lt. Gen. Harold G. Moore and Joseph L. Galloway


Where you get that image prien? hehe I saw that in one of my Vietnam in Pictures books. hehe

Goooooooooodddddddd Mooorrrrnnning Vietnam! Well that was a classic, and so was Apocalypse Now. But that was totally screwed, especially at the end. I really liked the First Cav part in that movie, "I love the smell of napalm in the morning. It smells like....victory". Casualties of War was screwed up a little, too, but generally good. Hamburger Hill was great. We Were Soldiers(hehe, now that you posted it) was really good."Broken aroow! I say again, broken arrow!". I liked that part, it was really cool, and the end when they take over the enemy base. The Green Berets was real good, for a real old movie. It was actually made during the Vietnam War, in 1967.Platoon, was okay, but not that great. The Boys In Company C was a good one, too. Full Metal Jacket waws a lttle screwed, but good. My buddy keeps on talking about that guy 'Animal Mother'. I haven't seen Tigerland, but I'd like too. Guess I outta shut up now.Head Out..
