    I don't generally care for military/war movies.

    Blackhawk Down was especially hard to watch. It's realistic though. One of my friends, a guy in my unit, was in the eighth vehicle in that convoy through Mogadishu. I also got to have a nice chat with Mark Bowden one night. Nice guy and smart as all hell.

    That much realism is not entertainment. Its a reminder to never send our troops into harms way unless we excessively overmatch the enemy (if not firepower, then intel). And for the man on the ground, a warning to always have a good exit strategy.

    Blackhawk Down?

    "Go there", and your attraction will fade p.d. fast... ditto, Hotel Rwanda. I have come to hate these stupid Hollywood fantasies that never could come close to the reality of hell. Better they had just flattened everything for two blocks in all directions from the flashpoint...no innocent civilians out there, just the clans ...

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Full Metal Jacket! My favorite war movie. (Edit: Whoops I missed it.....someone did mention it).
    Saving Private Ryan & Apocalypse Now are my other top choices.

    Worst War Movie? Well I'm sure there are some really bad ones out there but Pearl Harbor was a big let down for me
