    I've been watching a bunch of war movies lately and was wondering if I was missing any good ones that I should watch. Over the past month I have rewatched Black Hawk Down, Saving Private Ryan, We Were Soldiers, The Red Line, Heartbreak Ridge, Full Metal Jacket, etc...

    So list your favorites or a top 5 or 10 list.

    Enemy at the Gates, Bridge on the River Kwai, Halls of Montezuma, The Wind and the Lion, Sands of Iwo Jima, Guadalcanal Diary, Apocalypse Now, The D.I., Uncommon Valor, To the Shores of Tripoli, Wake Island, Gung Ho, Kingdom of Heaven.

    The scene in The Wind and the Lion where the Marines are marching down the street about to storm the town with the arabs is THE GREATEST SCENE in the history of war movies, yes it's even greater than the initial boot camp scene of FMJ.
