We were soldiers once and young. The best.

Probably Hamburger Hill. It's stinks that the Marine doesn't have a good Nam movie.

I would put Seige of Firebase Gloria ahead of most of those on the list, R Lee Armey rocks it as the Gunny.

Irish Marine. Boys of Company C. And Full Matal Jacket are marine based

None of my business, but Irish Marine did say a "good" movie. I have not seen Company C, but I would not call Full Metal Jacket a good Marine movie. Just my opinion.

All good movies!.

The "Deerhunter."

While it didn't have a lot of battle scenes in it, I thought it was right on the mark when it came to describing the affect the war had on the home front. I don't think we've ever gotten entirely over it.

"the Green Berets" might have been the worst Viet Nam War movie.

Go Tell the Spartans.

Hamburger Hill. Also 84 Charlie MoPic.

I'm gonna have to watch "The Odd Angry Shot" again.

+1 on Odd Angry Shot

I just bought Green Beret, Full Metal Jacket and Platoon at Walmart for $5 USD each.
