    Patton.

    I almost wrote Platoon.

    Never saw Patton.

    Lots of good options here.

    Das Boot

    Patton.

    Opening scene is one of the greatest in the history of film. Other parts of the movie always seemed a bit corny and dragged on IMHO.

    Band of Brothers is a mini series, but it deserves a mention. I also like Bridge on the River Kwai, Letters from Iwo Jima, and Das Boot.

    Actually dumbfuck, Das Boot was also a mini series. People forget that.

    RETARD!

    Saving Private Ryan
    Move this shit to the Yellow Snow Movie forum!

    But Saving Private Ryan is the best if only for the DD scene. The only thing would have been to put Robert Capa in there somehow taking pictures. He got out with everybody else as the legend has it, but most of his shots were lost when exposed to light be an over excited developer. Most of his shots would have been incredible. As it is the surviving shots are also incredible.

    Fury has the best tank battle scene -->

    Director Wolfgang Petersen has overseen the creation of several different versions of his film. The first to be released was the 149-minute theatrical cut, released to theatres in Germany in 1981 and America in 1982. It was nominated for six Academy Awards for (Cinematography, Directing, Film Editing, Sound (Milan Bor, Trevor Pyke and Mike Le Mare), Sound Effects Editing, and Writing).[6]

    The film was partly financed by German television broadcasters WDR and the SDR, and much more footage had been shot than was shown in the theatrical version. A version of three 100-minute episodes was transmitted on BBC Two in the United Kingdom in October 1984, and in Germany and Austria the following year. In 1984 on UK (German broadcast in 1985) television a 6 part series which is partially made of scenes from the movie was shown.[7][8] In 1988 a version composed of six 50-minute episodes was screened. These episodes had additional flashback scenes summarising past episodes.

    Petersen then supervised the editing of six hours of film, from which was distilled a 209-minute version, Das Boot: The Director's Cut. Released to cinemas worldwide in 1997, this cut combines the action sequences seen in the feature-length version with character development scenes contained in the mini-series. In addition, the audio and video quality was improved from that previously available.[9] Petersen had originally planned to release this version in 1981, but for commercial reasons it was not possible. In 1998 it was released on DVD as a single-disc edition including an audio commentary by Petersen, lead actor Jürgen Prochnow and director's cut producer Ortwin Freyermuth; a 6-minute making-of featurette; and in most territories, the theatrical trailer. In 2003 it was also released as a "Superbit" edition with no extra features, but a superior quality higher bit-rate and the film spread across two discs.

    The miniseries version was released on DVD in 2004, as Das Boot: The Original Uncut Version, also with enhanced audio and video quality. It omits the episode opening flashback scenes of the 1988 television broadcast so is slightly shorter, running 293 minutes.

    From 2010 onwards, the 208-minute "Director's Cut", along with various new extras, was released internationally on Blu-ray.[10][11] The American 2-disc Collector's Set also uniquely included the original 149-minute theatrical cut, which is otherwise unreleased on DVD or Blu-ray.

    In 2014 the original miniseries, also known as "The Original Uncut Version", was released on Blu-ray in Germany with optional English audio and subtitles.

    For both the "Director's Cut" and "The Original Uncut Version", new English language dubs were recorded featuring most of the original cast, who were bilingual. These dubs are included on all DVD and Blu-ray releases.

    Apocalypse Now had everything. It was serious and funny at the same time. Some very surreal scenes. Made you wonder what was going to happen next. Marlon Brando and a bad ass soundtrack. The horror...
