    Hail Satan!

    Sticky

    Lol. Tropic Thunder totally parodied this.

    Puulaahi

    WHY AM I HERE!

    Sticky

    @Puulaahi:
    BECAUSE FIGHTING FOR YOUR COUNTRY IN A WAR NOBODY WANTED TO GET INVOLVED IN AND WAS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS IS PATRIOTIC.

    NoOneInParticular

    And the kick is GOOD!!!! Three points for the underdogs!

    @Sticky: You either left your CapsLock on or feel the need to shout to make your point valid. Either way a mistake and if we didn’t have the Vietnam conflict we wouldn’t have had all the badass movies. I think the end justifies the means.

    Puulaahi

    @Sticky: AMERICA, FUCK YEAH! God Bless America, but she stole the B from “Bless”

    Troops have to put up with so much shit. SUPPORT THE TROOPS.

    Dunno why I used caps…

    @Sticky:
    *sigh*

    As much as I liked Tropic Thunder, I knew this would happen. The parody will/has become more well known than the amazing original it made fun of.

    @Sticky: I can’t place it. What is that a quote from? Team America?

    Snarky Parker

    This, Full Metal Jacket, and Apocalypse Now are the top three ‘Nam films.

    @Paul_Is_Drunk: Amongst children perhaps. I’m pretty sure more people have seen, and more importantly will remember, Platoon, even long after Tropic Thunder is forgotten.

    @Paul Kersey: Agree

    I fucking love this movie

    Platoon is in the top 10 war movies all time for me. In specific order.

    Saving Private Ryan
    Full Metal Jacket
    Paths of Glory
    The Great Escape
    Platoon
    MASH
    The Bridge over the River Kwai
    Glory
    Empire of The Sun
    Black Hawk Down

    i meant no specific order

    @ogie: If you liked Saving Private Ryan, I think you’ll love Band of Brothers.

    I’m rating this a 1 because the only memory I have of it is that annoying crappy-ass NES game of the same name.

    Sticky

    @BowToMe:
    So, 50,000 dead is a great justification for war movies and the extreme post-traumatic stress disorder many suffer from it justifies it? Riiiiight
    @Puulaahi:
    You can support the troops without supporting a war.
    @Paul_Is_Drunk:
    I was just referencing it. It’s not even a movie parodying many war movies, it’s a thing parodying MANY things, some of which have nothing to do with war.
    @freakymescan:
    Made it up on the spot.

    Did you know that Saigon only fell 2 years after we left?

    Puulaahi

    @Sticky: That is exactly what I do Sticky. Fuck War!

    DarkDsurion

    @ogie: I like your movie choices. Thumbs up. @Sticky et al: Well gee-whiz, 58,000 casualties in fifteen years? That’s only twice as many and change as the one day Battle of Antietam, twice as many as the two month battle at Thermopylae, and a little over half of the number killed in the four day Battle of Liepzig. And of course, lets not forget the nine million dead in WW1 (Jeopardy trivia: that’s 10 corpses for every centimeter of ground gained by either side). And here’s the kicker: three of those bloodbaths were truly dedicated to preserving your right to… Read more »
