I honestly haven't seen too many war films in my life, but the select few I have seen are spectacular. Listed below is a good healthy list of some of my personal favorite war films (in alphabetical order).
I do not have these ranked, and it honestly would be difficult to rank these ... but if I was to rank my "Top 5 FAVORITE" (not GREATEST) it would be:
5. Full Metal Jacket
3. Schindler's List
2. The Deer Hunter
1. Saving Private Ryan
(a close 6th would be Apocalypse Now)
So here there are ... it's WAR TIME! A relatively small list of some of my all-time favorite war films (non-ranked in alphabetical order) ...
Debate, discussion, and suggestions always welcome...
