    I would say HRO if I had seen the whole thing but I haven't. So, I had to vote for War Games.

    What about the classics? Such as "Red Dawn" and "FireFox." :D

    What about all the Vietnam movies like "MIA","Rambo" and "Apocolypse Now" Would you consider those to be Cold War Movies? :confused:

    Would you consider movies of George Orewell novels such as "1984" and "Animal Farm" Cold War Movies? :rolleyes:

    AND MOST IMPORTANTLY! What about "007"? There have been 20 or 21 James Bond pictures about 16 of which were made during the Cold War. [​IMG] :cool:

    Animal Farm is a satrie about how the beginning of communist feelings in Russia so I would definately consider it cold war. I am a WWII movie person so I wouldn't know if have a favorite cold war movie but I think there are a few John Waynes related to his era and he is great.

    WOW! cut me off. Con't--out of my mind. HRO, however, was the best drama and acting.

    War Games was pretty good, "Shall we play a game"...set the stage for all future hackers!
    I'm thinking The Hunt for Red October may have been one of the better movies. But if you want to just talk about the coolest cold war movie, it's got to be Top Gun! LOL!

    I saw "War Games" YEARS ago when I was in middle school. [​IMG]

    I think the Cold War movie to me would be "Green Berets" with John Wayne. Ever seen that one? [​IMG] I think this was filmed in the 1960s.
