I've only seen Graffiti and S Running out of those. I have seen another Hopper film though - Out of the Blue which wouldn't be out of place in this conversation.

7. Full Metal Jacket (1987, Stanley Kubrick)
I love this film. Own it on 4K UHD. It's very rewatchable considering it's a violent war drama. But it just missed out on my list. Probably...

Yeah turn everything off if you want the cinematic feel. The motion smoothing is called Soap Opera effect as it makes everything daytime tv.

It also makes subtitles judder.

That's stretching the Hollywood tag a bit isn't it? How many 'Hollywood' films has Edgar Wright made? One? Two?

My thoughts exactly. Doesn't belong in the top 10 in my opinion. Afters the opening, it's a series of shootouts and Band of Brothers type escapades. Decent film but overrated.

Re: The Movieforums Top 100 War Movies Countdown

Casablanca is one of my favourite films, but like others, I just couldn't put it in a war list. It's a romance / drama film.

I've never seen downfall, which I should probably rectify pretty soon.

Inglorious basterds is Tarantino at his worst. I rewatched it recently and it's really not very good. The first 40 minutes or so is pretty watchable but it descends into gratuitous rubbish. Just...

Shame he died so young. I think he would have transformed into a really interesting actor with lots of roles suited to him in his later years.

Re: The Movieforums Top 100 War Movies Countdown

I watched the Great Dictator for a HoF countdown. I enjoyed it quite a bit but didn't consider it for this list.

I've not heard of 'The Best Years of Our Lives'.

No votes.

Eugh, see for me that is the epitome of everything cheesy and awful that is Hollywood.

Algiers is great and was my #20. It's a masterpiece and the work gone into it is awe inspiring.
