    Oh give me a break! Behind Enemy Lines was amusing and it stops there. Trust me coming from someone who has had evasion training he did it all wrong and it was totally unrealistic.

    Behind Enemy lines was unrealistic in a way. But Black Hawk Down was pretty good.

    Hamburger Hill was a Vietnam movie. I think you're thinking of Pork Chop Hill.

    Right off the top I'd have to say I prefer the WWII flicks. Some that I like are:

    - Das Boot
    - Band of Brothers
    - Tora, Tora, Tora
    - Saving Private Ryan
    - The Guns of Navarone
    - Force 10 From Navarone (I liked Robert Shaw's character)
    - Patton
    - Hell in the Pacific

    But I like Platoon, Apocalypse Now, Flight of the Intruder, and a whole slew of other war flicks as well. I could fill a page.

    Toshiro Mifune was a great actor in my opinion. He really played it well.
