The Deer Hunter is great but heart-breaking

Jacob's Ladder is just unpleasant

pleb noguns opinion.

apocalypse now is better as a film, i will give you that. full metal jacket is kubrick jackassery and the actual vietnam scenes were shit.

actual soldiers like platoon. because platoon gets to the heart of what war really is like on a personal level. actual combat guys spend almost the whole time in their platoon. a group of about 40 guys. it is the interactions between these guys that define your experience.

but to answer OP, my favorite vietnam flick is thin red line

Does First Blood count? It's an arthouse film that people don't understand

The Senator's Son

>Apocalypse Now

>Forrest Gump
>Good Morning Vietnam

Really as long as its not fucking Platoon you're good.

Barnes makes that movie what it is. Still have a hard time finding someone like that in most war films. Can't explain what I like about him. Maybe it's just the tired, fatigued worn-down soldier that's prepared to do whatever is necessary to end the war being cast in such a role so close to the MC.

Apocalypse Now has Kurz be revealed throughout the whole film but he's really only interacting with the main character directly in a few parts. Maybe it was me reading Heart of Darkness far prior to the film that spoiled so much of it.

We Were Soldiers is not a better movie than Platoon

>all the times John C McGinley breaks down

All real too, apparently. The stress of filming the movie was getting to him.

>>64606012
Platoon had better acting and cinematography, but it also had an awfully hamfisted political message and pretends that how it portrays Veitnam is how it actually was. It's edgy and as idiotic as The Green Berets was. We Were Soldiers is popcorn, sure, but at least its entertaining.
>>
>>64606012
It is a better Nam movie however.

>and pretends that how it portrays Veitnam is how it actually was

...Are you saying the Vietnam War wasn't a shit time for Marines/soldiers in the jungle?
>>
>>64606468
Oh it certainly was. But trying to act like the Vietnam War was soldiers moving into towns, raping and burning everything, then shooting each other is ridiculous.

Thin Red Line is a WW2 flick.
