Me, I’m a sucker for 'em. I have a nice little collection of them on DVD at the house. I tend to go for the fictional “adventure” stories, such as The Guns of Naverone, Where Eagles Dare, Das Boot and The Eagle Has Landed.
My favorite is probably The Great Escape. I have seen that movie probably 50 times, and I never get tired of it. The Bridge on the River Kwai is also incredible, as are Patton and The Longest Day (which Mrs. Consigliori calls “The Longest Movie”).
Other favorites (but a little lower on my rankings list) are The Dirty Dozen, The Devil’s Brigade, and Midway. While these movies are good, I tend to let them sit on the shelf for a few months between viewings.
From the Vietnam Era, I like Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket (Platoon never really caught my fancy).
Anybody else got a good war movie in the field kit?
