I love Platoon, this will always be one of my favorites. Because of this movie I tried joining the military when I was 18. I had the impression that all you do in the army is smoke weed, drink beer, party, play cards, and occasionaly burn down a village after murdering some of it's inhabitants; sounds fun to me. Although I don't think Elias, as cool as he was, would have been allowed to stay in the military before the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy came into effect. The guy is totally queer for Taylor, when he is eating that bannana on that hammack staring at Taylor, I just want to vomit. Oliver Stone clearly hates the US military, half of the soldiers in this movie are complete degenerates, the other half, the good guys are a bunch of wastoids. If I was to remake this movie.... I wouldn't except maybe I would add zombies to the movie, for example Elias would come back as a zombie and Barnes would keep it in a cage.
