'Movies Like Platoon': Best War Movies of all Time

An eclectic selection of the best modern warfare (20th century onwards) related movies of all time, all the way from 'Run Silent Run Deep' to 'American Sniper'. If you're a war-buff, we're sure you won't walk away empty-handed!

Christian Bale Action

After his performance in 'The Machinist', for which he dropped 60lbs by subsisting on one meal a day, it's hard to deny Bale's devotion to the craft. What's even more impressive is that he began preparing for 'Batman' almost immediately after production finished - and managed to get superhero level ripped in a matter of weeks. Where can we get us some of THAT protein powder?

Spielberg Drama

Anyone who hasn't heard of legendary director Steven Spielberg can only have been living in a cave, under a rock, with earplugs in, unconscious for the past 40 odd years. Check out the breadth of his dramatic productions with this list.

John Malkovich Movies

He's a little bit creepy, sure, but then films like 'Ripley's Game' would hardly work if he weren't. Oh, and if you're curious what the inside of his head looks like (who wouldn't be), then check out 1999 cult-comedy 'Being John Malkovich'.

'Movies Like Full Metal Jacket': Top 80s War Movies

While the major conflict of the 1980s was a cold one, there was plenty of heat to reflect on from previous decades, particularly in Vietnam: hence 'Platoon', 'Full Metal Jacket', and 'Born on the Fourth of July'.

'Movies Like The Great Escape': POW Hall-of-Famers

These classic tales of endurance will make you feel lucky to be curled up on the couch, a nice cup of tea in hand. Be sure to watch 'The Hill' a much underrated Sean Connery classic about soldiers locked up by their own army.

'Movies Like The Dirty Dozen': Classic WW2 Movies

Few wars so clearly pitted good versus bad guys as WW2 rejoice in these morale boosting depictions of allied forces whupping Nat-zie butt in France, North Africa, and on their own home turf!
