Zero Dark Thirty is terrible, I was very disappointed.
The Best Years of Our Lives is not a war movie.
Coming Home is also not a war movie.
Platoon is fantastic.
Full Metal Jacket is as well.
The Thin Red Line needs a good editor.
Flags of Our Fathers I have mixed feelings about.
Saving Private Ryan is good, then bad and then becomes good again at the end.
The Deer Hunter I have never seen.
Apocalypse Now is iconic with some excellent scenes.

Movies that should have been on this list
Pork Chop Hill
Twelve O'Clock High
Tora Tora Tora
Hamburger Hill
