The Toptober Tens #20 – Vietnam War Films


toptoberFor this month’s twentieth Toptober Tens, Here are my Top Ten Favorite Vietnam War films.

The Vietnam War was quite a controversial one and the movies depicting the raw battle scenes of that war have been used to create some of the best war (*actually anti-war) films ever.

Some of these films get quite graphic in their depiction of war, but that is also what makes them stand out… their realism.

Keep in mind, that these are all solely my opinion and part of what I would like to do is open conversation and dialogue between us all over the choices in these lists

Off we go….gmv
