    I can't help but think about the Vast gap and I do mean vast when I think about Adam Goldbergs role in Dazed and Confused and Private Ryan. It just boggles the mind.

    Saving Private Ryan
    Band of Brothers
    Apocalypse Now
    Full Metal Jacket
    Glory
    Lawrence of Arabia
    Patton
    Braveheart
    Three Kings
    Hell in the Pacific
    A Midnight Clear
    Ran
    Kelly's Heroes (not a serious war movie, but a fun watch)

    ok this one is a stretch but it has wars in the title. STAR WARS. ok I guess by the same token that you could call Tek wars a war film. ok Tek wars was horrible forget I said anything.

    Aly - did you ever see the Little Big Horn section in the Dustin Hoffman flick, Little Big Man?

    No sir , but Dustin Hoffman & The battle of little Bighorn should not be mentioned in the same scntance .
    I like him , but it just doesn't even sound right .

    Little Big Man is worth seeing, Aly. It's the recounting of his life by 127 year old Jack Crabb (Hoffman). It's a dark comedy, but manages to say a lot about the settling of the west. Custer, as portrayed by Richard Mulligan, is undeniably insane. It's a well-made film, directed by Arthur Penn in 1970.

    1991's Son of the Morning Star is the story of Custer and the Little Big Horn (Greasy Grass), told from both sides. It's 187 minutes long, so there's quite a bit of ground covered.

    PD ... Huh ? OK ...Well perhaps I shouldn't be too jaded . Just that there have been a sh!tload of horrible movies about The Battle of Little Bighorn , most of them makining Custer out to be some sort of martyrd hero as opposed to an egomaniacle imbicile who got his just reward .
    Uppon your reccomendation , I will look into these two films .
    Thanks for the heads up .

    Actually, The Battle of Little Big Horn is only one portion of "Little Big Man" which follows the life of Hoffman's character in the old west. It's very well done, and it has some great acting by Chief Dan George (better known for "The Outlaw Josey Wales").

    I saw this on Comedy Central about a month ago--a great watch!

    So many great WWII movies so I'll keep it short.

    * Cross of Iron is one of my favourites. The main character was called Sgt. Steiner. What a coincidence that that is what I call myself on this forum...

    Puking Dog and Admins.: There was at one time, a longer, older thread on this same topic at the OSW. Anyone know if it's in the archives or is it gone? I had posted a list there of my war flick favorites and would like to somehow re-access it if at all possible.

    Sorry I took so long to respond, Mortar Conn. So far all I have found is this thread's evil twin: https://www.onesixthwarriors.com/foru...-all-time.html

    I'll keep digging...

    .....OK, you have 961 posts, and apparently 500 are in the hive memory. I think that may be the operative state for all of us, I'll have to ask Colossus, altho it usually starts queuing up ICBMs whenever I ask it something it doesn't want to answer.

    You should hunt around for the Australian Miniseries ANZAC's which stars paul Hogan. It is very good as is the current Hill 69.
