OK. So maybe there were 500K total soldier's over there. The wall itself has 58,245 names on it...I just looked it up. I'll keep looking for the other info.

oh, i like PLATOON the best, i like the jungle, not the city, in which JACKET takes place.

ANTOINE is a cool director, TRAINING DAY, and TEARS OF THE SUN, are some of my favourite movies.

But still, did you think that FMJ was a good/ above average vietnam movie? Vietnam vets I had talked to back in 1987 said that they preferred FMJ over Platoon because of the raw and potent realism behind it (FMJ). Even on the news in 1987 (the time FMJ came out), alot of Vietnam vets preferred FMJ and hailed it as the most realistic Vietnam war film ever made. Quite a number of critics agreed. The only reason why it never got any Academy Award nominations was because it wasn't entirely made by Hollywood and Stanley Kubrick was a controversial director (although he recieved a Lifetime Achievement Award).


Pray that he's still out there... somewhere...

FMJ blew Platoon out of the water.
