Favorite (not best) war movie. I have at least ten I love, but I was watching The Green Berets again last night with some old friends. We put away about ½ a bottle of single malt scotch and talked about how close the movie was to the way the group was when we were young pups in SF. Really was not bothered by the hype in the film, but the undertone of the film really hit home about how we were in the day.

(These movies have been previously nominated by TMP members for this poll.)
