@farmerman,
THE DOG MEN is a very good film. Very sad if I remember correctly, though it has been years I must say since I have seen it.

@djjd62,
I saw The Deer Hunter in Copenhagen (with English subtitles) & was so dazed after it, I walked off in the wrong direction (to my hotel) & got lost for hours ... (really)

@djjd62,
I never liked Apocalypse Now. I dont like being ordered about by a movies Title.
Wasnt there an exclamation point at the end of the title? That would piss me off a lot.

89. Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie (1996)
The riffing of a science fiction classic, This Island Earth!

Crow T. Robot, Mike Nelson, and Tom Servo brutally shred this schlocky B-Movie with such biting humor (both low brow and high brow esoteric).

No. No exclamation point. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078788/

And besides, Apocalypse Now is the best darn war movie ever produced! Cool

@djjd62,
Grave of the Fireflies: One of the most powerful and personal antiwar films ever created. Very heartbreaking indeed. It's a shame most people won't see it because it's animated.

@tsarstepan,
Really? Not my take. I didn't hate it, exactly, just not at all the best darn war movie.

I m pretty sure there is no exclamation point.
I did not care much for that one, either.

@ossobuco,
Here's a naturally truncated list of war movies, with, as usual, the most recent pushing to the front of the preferred:
http://digitaldreamdoor.nutsie.com/pages/movie-pages/movie_war.html

I'm not sure of my favorite, favorite being a loaded word. Back later. I doubt my favorite is on this list, if I could zero in on one, but as one of the contestents, Night of the Shooting Stars.

I loved Ghost; it was well written, artfully integrated Unchained Melody, and beautifully acted.
I bawt that one on videotape.

@OmSigDAVID,
You didn't like Francis Ford Coppola's modern day take on Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness?
