William's Top 5 War Movies

I thought I would post my Top Five war movies. These are strictly war films, not sci-fi, I'll be posting those later. I wanted to post these to allow readers to understand my POV on military sci-fi.

BLACK HAWK DOWN

Most war movies were events that happened outside of my lifetime, however the Battle of Mogadishu happened when I was in high school, and the movie did justice to the fallen. Simply put, one of the best war movies, for its stunning visuals and emotions. One thing that was key in the film's success, was that the veterans of October 3rd and 4th 1993, were still alive to act as advisers on the film.

PLATOON
Vietnam was a war that left scars on the American psyche, and it seemed in the mid-1980's, the demons were exoduses via a number of Vietnam-era war movies, but none better than Platoon. This was a war movie that give my writing the hue of bitter war, emotional scars, and brotherhood. Platoon is not an easy film, but it a critical one.


HAMBURGER HILL

Platoon and Full Metal Jacket overshadowed this film about the May 10th-12th 1969 battle in the A Shau Valley. Once again, like Blackhawk Down, it used veterans of the battle as primary sources. The steer brutality of this battle left an impression that still echos in my writing today.


THE SAVING OF PRIVATE RYAN

The first twenty minutes of SOPR are famous among war movies. The raw violence, acting, and brutality made SOPR a hard movie to turn away from or forget. The simple chaos of the steady hand shots and washout colors redefined the look WWII films.



TEARS OF THE SUN

Seem like an odd choice? I admit that the last few minutes of Tears of the Sun, are hammy, but few movies actually showed the SEALs real tactics and missions. Most films on special forces are overdone and terribly embellished. This movie adds a layer of humanity to the SEALs and the final big battle is painfully realistic. I was floored the first time I watched it, and I still think that it is Bruce Willis' finest performance.

  1. I agree with you William, Tears of the Sun is a fine movie and is one of the best SpecOps movies out there. OF course this is an old post and I'm sure Act Of Valor would be making the SpecOps list.

  2. Oh man...Act of Valor. There was a review that I was going to write, and I didn't, because the movie sat with me oddly. On one level, I liked the film, and every MSF writer needs to watch it, but there other some downright odd bits and some elements I believe are unrealistic...namely the raid on the Mexican village at night. But it is a bold pioneering film
    There is a French film about a specops mission in A-stan that is called "special forces", that looks similar, but I cannot a source to watch it and don't speak French...only English and bad English.

  3. The thing about Nigerian movies is the story. The most common flaws in Nigerian solarmovies.co are their poor endings. In the outgoing year, one thing that refused to change about Nigerian movies is its character.

  4. The article discusses the Zombie 123movies slated for release in the later months of 2013 and 2014; the genre is hugely popular now, following the vampire mania. It discusses the planned releases that look like they are going to cater to the new zombie mania sweeping the world, after wizards and vampires.

  6. There are fewer words that make a movie buff happier than 'new Telugurush releases'. After all, movie buffs understand that watching as many movies as possible isn't the actual goal, but they are intrigued & guided by the want to have a front-seat to new movies as they are released. Given the "dog eat dog" world of movie reviews either in print or via video, scoring an early viewing lets your voice be heard before anyone else's. It even makes the guy typing, "First" a little late to the party.
