I don't know if I can think of 10 war films but the ones I've loved..
Casualties of War
Full Metal Jacket
The Manchurian Candidate (well it has to do with war..)
Catch-22 (love that movie!!)
No Man's Land (from Serbia or Croatia)
Apocalypse Now (I loved the acting but the story wasn't all that good in my opinion)
War movies are the closest I'll ever get to watching an action movie, I don't think I've watched one of those since I was a kid and didn't have a choice.
Worst war movie:
Saving Private Ryan - I mean I was kinda excited before watching it, and then I watched it, and I was like that's it?! they could've done so much better. Besides Tom Hanks is overrated and so is Steven Spielberg.
The Thin Red Line - never seen it, for some weird reason

Yes, it was a very good, moving war film. Although from a historical standpoint Schindler's "humanitarian" motives are dubious. [/b][/quote]
i would consider a film a war film if it romancizes or glorifies violence.
schindler's list does not do that. it's an amazing film
I've never seen Schindler's List! I'd like to but Spielberg can be dissapointing sometimes.. Personally I don't like war and I don't support the current one (or any other) but war films are okay.. Not because of the blood and the sounds of machine guns, I like it when there's some drama involved, a real story..
