What war movies do you own?

This has probably been discussed already but WAR can't be searched


Bridge on the River Kwai-LE
The Patriot
Patton
Platoon
Red Dawn ?
Rules of Engagement
Saving Private Ryan
Uncommon Valor- my personal favorite

I guess Top Gun could be considered to be a war film

Jarhead, Three Kings, Saving Private Ryan, Apocalypse Now, Braveheart, and to an extent Starship Troopers.

I plan on getting Full Metal Jacket when the new Kubrick SEs are released.
