    Horrible list there were many films that deserved to be on this list but didn’t make it because in your book they are not critically acclaimed. Look up Saving Private Ryan, Glory, Platoon, and Black Hawk Down and you will see they are more critically acclaimed than half of these movies. Schindler’s List is the best movie I’ve seen BUT ITS NOT A WAR MOVIE. Born On the Fourth Of July is NOT A WAR MOVIE and even calling it one is similar to calling Forest Gump a war movie. My Media Technology teacher even says its not a war movie. WHAT IS OH, WHAT A LOVELY WAR!!!!!! EVEN THE TITLE AND DESCRIPTION PISS ME OFF AND I HAVEN’T EVEN SEEN IT!!!!!!!! Since when do musicals and satires classify as war movies? Why is Thin Red Line on here especially number 1? Thin Red Line was boring, slow, and didn’t show the brotherhood that you thought it did. Worst list I’ve ever seen to be honest. Not trying to be sexist but its funny how every bad war movie list I see is made by a woman.

    Your list was cute for someone who seems to have just started watching war movies. Since you are new to it, here are some others you might want to check out (in addition to some already named):

    A Bridge Too Far
    The Longest Day
    Letters from Iwo Jima
    The Great Escape
    All Quiet on the Western Front
    The Bridge on the River Kwai
    The Last of the Mohicans
    Empire of the Sun
    The Killing Fields
    Stalag 17

      I’ve seen 12 on your list and I included All Quiet On the Waterfront on my list…could you be any more patronising? But, hey, thanks for your ‘cute’ contribution.

    I’m sorry but this list is just piss poor , The Thin Red Line is a boring waste of great actors. By not including Saving Private Ryan your just trying to be to cool for the room. Where’s Platoon , this list stinks and I don’t like it

  • red

  • saroj

    I just didnt like the list at all, without saving private ryan, full metal jacket, the great escape, we were soldiers. These films must be included whatever list u made for war movies ever.

    I’m glad Shaving Ryan’s Privates isn’t on the list as it’s greatly overrated, boring, only involves Americans and gives future generations of children an inaccurate and distorted view of the Second World War, but that said most American war films are very one sided and give the impression that the yanks won the war single handed, even though they never bothered to enter it until 1941, it started in 1939 folks.

      Iredale? Are we related? Anyway, I’ve no objections to Saving Private Ryan on “one sided grounds” – it was about an American battle after all.
