It's been a long time since I've seen any of them, so I don't remember some very well.
I think I'd pick Deer Hunter or Apocalypse Now. Although I almost don't consider Apocalypse to be a Vietnam movie so much as another kind of movie that just happened to take place n Vietnam.
I also thought Good Morning Vietnam was good. One time I asked a Vietnam vet which one he thought was most realistic and he said Good Morning Vietnam. The reason he gave was that you can't possibly portray in a movie what it was like. The way he put it, you can't portray being so fucking scared that you shit your pants. It's a fear so strong that you can only know it by experiencing it. So the combat scenes can not be realistic, but some of the behind the scenes stuff like in Good Morning can get a little bit closer.
Full Metal Jacket is one of my favourite movies of all time. RIP Lee Ermey.
