Perfection... or as close to it as we're ever likely to see
Its hard to know where to start with such a breathtaking film. Oliver Stone's Platoon is quite simply the best Vietnam...
Shot in only 54 days.
Oh, man. Is that what I think it is?
Sergeant: All right, you cheese-dicks, welcome to the Nam. Follow me!
When the soldiers are celebrating in the tent early in the film, they are drinking Budweiser from two-piece stay-tab cans with UPC symbols. Container companies introduced the two-piece can in 1974, the stay-tab in 1975 and the UPC symbol in 1978. Budweiser introduced the can style used in the movie in 1981.
