I just went through everything and not one person put Harts War as one of their favorites.

Watched it last night loved every second even though i do hate Colin Farrel with a passion. Must have been the trial that was so intriguing, i'm a gonna be a lawyer when i grow up. :D

One worth catching...

One good flick not yet mentioned is "84 Charlie MoPic". A 'lessons learned' film crew goes out with a LRRP in Vietnam - all shot first person through the cameraman's perspective. Worth a look.

Intell, re: The Great Escape. When just out of high school in '86, I worked with a guy who's dad had "been in the war." Over lunch one day, the father briefly mentioned that he'd been shot down, and a POW, then he left the table. "That's as much as we've ever heard him say," I was told. I was later dumbfounded to discover that he had been in that stalag, and was one of the people who did exercises on the vault box while the guys were digging. he drew a really high number, and never had a chance to go through the tunnel. Amazing, the people you meet.

Probably for the same reason no one listed "Tears of the Sun" as a great movie, BRUCE WILLIS.

Not that i like Bruce Willis, but whats wrong with him?

I liked Harts War because of the trial which as i said was intiguing, and because it contains very strong messages of honor, duty and courage, both physical and moral.

Watch "Go Tell the Spartans". This movie was one of the first Vietnam War movies. Burt Lancaster was a Major that had some difficulties with his career, but still led like a soldier. At the end, the US advisors to the ARVN were called to pull out, leaving the indigenous personell to die. Craig Wasson, as a young volunteer, refused to leave, and the Major did as well. The friendlies were wiped out, but at least they weren't abandoned. It's a good movie, with a tragic but meaningful ending.

I have to say is a most excellant movie. Nothing can beat a guitar case full of machine pistols and knives and stuff.
I always liked bruce willis' work but Tears of the Sun and Hearts War are some of his worst products in a while. Mel Gibson has done some good movies with Braveheart and We were Soldiers...
