    Did no one remember the Sea Bees, Force 10 from Navarone, Gettysburg, the Southern Belle, the Black Brigade (Richard Pryor and mister colt 45 himself Billy Dee Williams), Taskforce Z (I think that was the name of it, had a young Mel Gibson), Pork Chop Hill, Tigerland, Casualties of War. These aren't the greatest films of all time but still warrent some mention as that they are war movies.

    The Lost Batallion was good. Hey has any one heard that Taritino's next flick will be a WWI epic?

    haloed - that Mel Gibson film was called Attack Force Z and it also had Sam Neill, supressed grease guns and the Dutch actor who played Dangeriabolik and the space angel in Barbarella. Sam Neill was COLD in that film.

    It also had a cool Tears of the Sun style ending where half the cast cops it.

    Banana chin is planning a remake of little seen WW2 exploiter Inglorious Bastards, but the real dizzy is that Peter Jackson is planning an $100 million WW 1 Gallipoli style epic after King Kong and Lovely Bones.

    I like all the old films,

    Guns of Navarone
    The Dirty Dozen

    Newer films,
    Patton
    Apocolypse Now
    Full Metal Jacket
    BHD
    The Beast
    Fire Fox
    Stripes

    haloed: I'm pretty sure it was "Attack Force Z", as you said with a young Mel Gibson and Sam Neill as "Diggers" in the PTO. I first saw that movie when I was about 12 and I've loved the Grease Gun ever since!

    Yea I remember wathing attack force z late one night on cable, around veterens day or a similar holiday, where they use it as an excuse to show all the war movies in their library. So I'm shocked when I see Sam Neil as this stone cold killer, when up to that point I think the only thing I had ever seen him in was Jurassic Park. Mel was so young was it prior to his role in Mad Max?

    You know, Tarentino is considering Adam Sandler for a roll in his WW II flick? Now imagine that....

    Thats about as wierd as Adam Goldberg and Vin diesel in Saving Private Ryan
