Platoon

Next up for 1986 was Platoon. I’ll say this, I found the scenes in the village — that spark the riff between the sergeants — to be even more disturbing than I remembered. Might be that at this point in my life I can better appreciate the horror of the situation. It’s still a mesmerizing film to watch, but the weak point is definitely Charlie Sheen, and unfortunately he’s at the center of it — his narration is really quite dull.
