Itís really simple.

The video Keyser posted was the song ďLetís DanceĒ by David Bowie and The Waltz is a type of dance.

Re: The Movieforums Top 100 War Movies Countdown

I saw Black Hawk Down one time like 20 years ago. I didn't like it and that's all I remember about it. I haven't seen Ivan's Childhood.

I've watched Jojo Rabbit a few times and I think it offers a really great balance of hilarity and heavy emotion. It earned itself a spot at #7 on my ballot.

Here's what I wrote about it when I...

I donít know if Iíve ever actually seen all of a Rambo movie, nor do I want to. I prefer my Stallone thawed out, eating rat burgers, and having virtual sex with Sandra Bullock.

Iíve definitely...

I haven't seen any part of War and Peace. I watched Fail-Safe for a HOF. I respected it but it's not my kind of movie.

Re: The Movieforums Top 100 War Movies Countdown

I haven’t seen any of today’s movies or yesterday’s. I have to say though, a war movie starring George Clooney and Marky Mark, directed by David O. Russell sounds like my own personal nightmare.

Re: The Movieforums Top 100 War Movies Countdown

I vaguely remember seeing Kingdom of Heaven at the theater and being pretty underwhelmed by it. My aversion to Orlando Bloom doesn’t help any. I haven’t seen The Train or Red Angel. No votes.

IIRC, the rules stated that it had to be listed as War on IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, or Letterboxd. Tropic Thunder is listed as war on 2 out or 3 of those sites.

Re: The Movieforums Top 100 War Movies Countdown

I've seen Shame, along with quite a few of Bergman's other films, and I recall liking it but didn't remember it well enough to be able to rank it. No vote from me. I haven't seen Twelve O'Clock High.
