Top 5 Wars in Film You’d Love To Be In

Stanely Kubrick evocatively summarizes war in a single quote in his 1987 film, Full Metal Jacket. Private Joker (played by Matthew Modine) shares a Huey with a psychotic machine gunner who willingly guns down innocent women and children shouting, “Ain’t war hell?!” Since the 1960's, directors have opted to create distinctly anti-war pictures which illustrate the damning effects of war on the state and on the psychological stability of its soldiers. Conversely, these serious anti-war films have had to compete with the romantic, adventurous epics of war which were much more financially successful but did not fare as well critically. Any film critic worth his salt would most likely choose Apocalypse Now over Kelly’s Heroes or The Guns of Navarrone for its contemplation of the human condition in the wilderness setting of the Vietnam War.

Ranging from the outrageously priced to the ridiculously extravagant, these totally unnecessary leisure products are way out of most working peoples' price ranges. Sure, we may never be able to afford half of the "luxury" items in Hammacher Schlemmer or The Sharper Image (didn't they go out of business, anyway?) but that doesn't mean we can't make fun of them.

Smaller hamburger joints are driving rapid growth within the industry, with overall sales growing 16.4% in 2010, according to an AdAge report on data from Technomic.
