When Oliver Stone hits he hits hard. When he misses he whiffs entirely. Platoon has some of both. While Tim and Matt spend some time talking about the film’s war bonafides, and lack thereof, Tim directs us to the theme of Classical Needledrops, inspired by Platoon’s use of “Adagio for Strings.” He then continues the reclamation of Heaven’s Gate and waxes about personal favorite The Right Stuff, both of which are recontextualized by some surprising classical music drops.
