    Yeah, i think it is a fairly underappreciated movie. Lots of nuance that you should watch it a couple times through.

    I saw a list of '25 Best War Movies' not long ago, and 'We Were Soldiers' wasn't on it. Immediately rendered that list meaningless. 'We Were Soldiers' I think is a top-5 war movie ever made, maybe top-3.

    While I refused at first, gosh darn it, you probably all knew my absolute love for lists would eventually make me cave, so half reluctantly/half giddy here goes. However, in one final act of defiance, I'll say no particular order.

    Saving Private Ryan
    Die Hard
    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings
    The Dark Knight
    Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back
