ALL war movies are unrealistic, including The Hurt Locker (I have never seen it because former EOD buddies of mine said that it was crap).I've never been a big fan of saving private ryan either. I can still remember watching it with my grandfather, a WWII vet from the 101st, and he laughed through half the movie and then proceeded to call it " rah rah patriotic bullshit" and I remember he thought it was incredibly unrealistic.
speaking of movies...the fact that "Shakespeare in Love" won best picture over "Saving Private Ryan"...might be biggest screwjob of all time...also "Cinderella Man" way under rated
My top 5:
Star Wars VI - only because of the metal bikini
Star Trek - the newest one.
My bottom 5:
EVERY MOVIE EVER MADE BY TARANTINO - WORST DIRECTOR EVER.
