Platoon (1986)

Platoon (51:42) Rated R for a spot or three of foul words.

Platoon 2

Come have 2 grunts fight for possession of your soul by listening to our 108th T100P ‘cast. This was back when Tom Berenger was at his peak and Charlie Sheen wasn’t a twit-bag. Oliver Stone has only this title on the AFI list, so we spent some time talking about his entire career. Fire up some Sparkplug Coffee and then dig into a foxhole for a chat about a harrowing war flick.
