Full Metal Jacket
"A saga following a group of Marines from boot camp to combat during the 1968 Tet Offensive in Vietnam, a campaign launched by the North Vietnam Army and the Viet Cong, which took the U.S. and its allies by surprise."
"The MASH crew offsets the gruesome realities of the Korean War by devastating the compound with outrageous practical jokes. M*A*S*H stands as one of the most original and enduring comedies ever made."
"This panoramic portrait of General Patton - a magnificent anachronism, deeply pious and extremely profane-offers shrewd insight into the brilliant, unstable WW II tactician."
"The diary of a green Vietnam GI shows the realities of that conflict as soldiers fight enemies, including bugs, C-rations, jungle rot, marijuana and a demoralized sergeant, as well as the Vietcong."
Saving Private Ryan
"A U.S. Army captain leads a mission to rescue a GI trapped behind enemy lines in France on D-Day after all three of the soldier's brothers are killed in action. As the search commences, the close-knit squad sets out through areas still thick with Nazis."
The Thin Red Line
"Set during World War II, the story follows an Army rifle company during several months of one of the fiercest struggles of the twentieth century - the battle of Guadalcanal Island. The Thin Red Line marks a much-anticipated return to the director's chair by Terrence Malick,"
