I can't believe people are picking black hawk down as better than Jarhead. Why?

What is "On the Beach" I have never heard of it...

Never heard of On the Beach either, but Black Hawk Down got my vote easily.  I found Jarhead terribly boring.  I know that was kind of the point, but still...zzzz.
The hardest votes for me were the Vietnam, WWI and WWII movies...most of those are some really great films.

Try reading the Black Hawk Down book then watching the movie.  It made me not enjoy the movie as much.  The book really gives you this feeling that they are traded after they crash and that they will never get out and they never get that connived very will in the movie.  I highly recommend the book though it is really well written. 03/14/2009

Patandcougar - I agree. Tough choices.  I chose Saving Private Ryan and Paths of Glory. But then for Vietnam I chose Apoc. Now because it is more of a Vietnam movie than Full Metal Jacket.
Apocalypse Now (1979)
4/4 stars
A great war movie which puts you as the viewer in Vietnam. I love how the whole movie is based on one mission, but from that you understand what vietnam was like for both the US and the Vietnamese. (stat away from the redux, as it is too long and unneccesary)

I have to say, the best war movie all time is "the Bridge on the River Kwai." A close second is "the General" with Buster Keaton. 10/24/2009
