So what should be there or what shouldn’t be?

Some great movies, most of which (in my definition of a war movie) should not be there.

 

My 3 favourites:

 

Apocolypse Now

 

The Thin Red Line

 

Das Boot

They seemed like war themed movies to me.

 

But the top dozen or so wasn't linked for me, so no idea what they were.

Yes some odd choices ... Casablanca ? Pans labyrinth ? Great movies ... but best war movies ? 

 

What do we associate with war movies ? 

 

I seem to think those 1st world war and following ?

 

i don’t see movies like braveheart, Spartacus as war movies ?

 

Similarly English patient ? 

 

More war war setting as been mentioned :)

Surely Starship Troopers should have been on the list. 😀

A Bridge Too Far....

 

Had every known actor you could think of from the mid seventies.

 

I was 10 when it came out. Big brothers must have taken me, crikey seems a bit young when I think of it.
