10 Movies Men Love And Why
Starring: Charlie Sheen, Willem Dafoe
The Plot: A dark, honest portrayal of the Vietnam War as seen through the eyes of a morally conflicted young recruit.
Why Guys Love It: "Platoon" is so overwhelming, overstimulating, and depressing that simply watching it start to finish is a test of endurance, and all the men who have lived through it are battle-hardened comrades who can reminisce about its atrocities from the safety and comfort of the corner bar. Basically, "Platoon" is the basis for thousands of male friendships.
