Sort by: Showing 19 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
Kubrick's vision of Vietnam plants us in a grim boot camp then dumping us off in the heart of the Tet Offensive where we meet innocence, cynicism, and death.
Prisoner 1138's rating:

Platoon (1986)
Jesus Christ (DaFoe) and The Devil (Berenger) battle for the soul of the Angel (Sheen) only to open the eyes of Sheen's Chris to the reality of war. This film is sad and at times tough to watch.

People who added this item 3932 Average listal rating (2454 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.4
A masterpiece that plummets us into hell on earth.
Prisoner 1138's rating:
People who added this item 192 Average listal rating (134 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.7
A tad underrated probably because it was a smaller picture and was released behind the one-two punch of the Oscar Winning "Platoon" and Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket."

Prisoner 1138's rating:

Smuggle, run, and gun.
Prisoner 1138's rating:
The horrors of life and the uncertainty of coming back to reality.

Prisoner 1138's rating:
I'm up and down with Robin Williams, it's always hit or miss. This one shows us how hope is possible in the midst of a nightmare.

People who added this item 1106 Average listal rating (720 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.2
Ronny Kovac comes home to the horror of America's treatment of the brave, young soldiers that lose their lives and innocence for nothing. The V.A. hospital scenes are gut wrenching.

As if the horrors of war weren't enough, the horrors within the war puts brother and brother.

Venturing into the perspective of the Vietnamese, a film that slowly started to share point of view of the other victims.

People who added this item 1641 Average listal rating (1206 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.7
Critics have often reviewed this film's portrayal of the Vietnam Vet and the unpleasant homecoming / welcome as an exaggeration. This coming from those who were nowhere near the Vietnam War.

The first in the many to come successful "Rescue the P.O.W.'s" films.


Prisoner 1138's rating:
People who added this item 17 Average listal rating (8 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.8
An attempt to be a serious film about a vet who comes home and discovers life is simpler back in the war than it is in America, instead becomes a poor attempt as a studio comedy.

Prisoner 1138's rating:

An unpopular war.

A touchy subject.

Horrific images, stories of tragic loss, comradeship.

The first war in history to be criticized while it was happening and the filmmakers that took a chance and presented what hell is really like. No glitz, no gloss, no glamour.

A war where soldiers came back home only to be treated like they did not exist and who were disrespected being belief.

Dialogue from "Full Metal Jacket"

Private Joker: Is that you, John Wayne? Is this me?
Private Cowboy: Hey, start the cameras. This is "Vietnam - the Movie."
Private Eightball: Yeah, Joker can be John Wayne. I'll be a horse.
Donlon: T.H.E. Rock can be a rock.
T.H.E. Rock: I'll be Ann-Margret.
Doc Jay: Animal Mother can be a rabid buffalo.
Crazy Earl: I'll be General Custer.
Private Rafterman: Well, who'll be the Indians?
Animal Mother: Hey, we'll let the gooks play the Indians.
