And to see it culminate in a scene that is forever burned in my mind (Barry Pepper's character having just deposited a horribly burned fellow soldier to an evacuation chopper, falls to his knees as he is taken away... "Tell my wife I love her... and my baby..."), is a remarkable cinematic achievement.
    .i was about 10 (im currently 14) when i first watched We Were Soldiers and thought it was amazing. Mel Gibson was great in the movie and i dont think any other actor would have played his the role better. He was also great in Braveheart, which i believe is a must see movie.

    Just agreeing with this statement, this is by far my fave war movie with saving private ryan at a close second. The part that always gets me is when the copters are coming in slow motion, it really brings out how shy war is. By far my fave movie, thanks for bringing it up

    Hope I helped! ^.^

    I second ( or is that third?) Saving Private Ryan as a must-see.

    Default The Last Airbender



    The movie came out in 1 July 2010 (USA). Its a written and directed by M.

    Night Shyamalan. The story follows the adventures of Aang, a young successor

    to a long line of Avatars, who must put his childhood ways aside and stop the

    Fire Nation from enslaving the Water, Earth and Air nations. Anyways.... go

    watch it yourself. Hehehe

    Two movies from the 80's that aren't well known but I find to be hilarious. Both probably available at Netflix.

    Warning Sign.. genetic engineering gone wrong, lots of good laugh lines

    Jekyll and Hyde Together Again..Probably one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Altho you probably had to be part of the 80's drug culture to really understand how damn funny it is.

    Here's my pick for must-see drug movie. Super low-budget, super amazing soundtrack.

    Bish plz. Live action movies based on animated cartoon series always fail. An example of this is Dragonball....

    The Believer (2001)
    Directed by Henry Bean

    A young Jewish man (Ryan Gosling) develops a fiercely anti-Semitic worldview. His influential way with words and speeches has earned him high regard amongst the underground Nazi-movements in New York City. He has the ability to attract the right kind of attention to get where he wants to go; if Hitler had a reincarnation, this just might be it.

    Jewish self-hatred is an interesting foundation for a film, if only because it's a subject never explored by an industry still apologizing for the Holocaust.
