    What is Your Favorite War Movie?

    Just curious because I am really into any movie that depicts the Civil War, WWI, WW2, Nam, etc.

    I will put Gettysburg at the top of my list because of it's accuracy to the battle. It also shows equal parts of both sides which is awesome.

    Gettysburg Movie the best part - Battle of Little Round Top - YouTube

    Robert E Lee at Gettysburg - YouTube

    Saving Private Ryan is pretty awesome. Hits me right in the feels.


    Also, Inglorious Basterds is a war movie, right?
