233. We Were Soldiers (2002)
-I wonder what was going through Custer's mind when he realized that he'd led his men into a slaughter?
-Sir, Custer was a (#*@#. You ain't.
My distaste for war movies is pretty well documented on this blog, and I'm also not a huge Mel Gibson fan (especially considering recent escapades). Still, this is one awesome movie. It does an amazing job of balancing the truth of war with the truth of the men that are caught up fighting it. It also deals with the early days of Vietnam which is also a period of history that usually gets overlooked.
