The Best and Worst Movie Taglines of All Time, #94

Back after a weekend away, it's the Best and Worst Movie Taglines of All Time! Why do this? What makes a tagline good or bad? Check all that out here: http://www.mistercinecal.com/2015/06/the-best-and-worst-movie-taglines-of.html

And now, on with the list!

Best #94
Which: "The first casualty of war is innocence"
Where: Platoon
What: The 'Be Sharps' Principle
When: 1986
Why: Definitely gets across the whole 'war is hell' message, with a clever bit of word play on how young men are left broken and traumatised by war. But, um technically *pushes glasses up nose*, losing one's innocence in war is likely to come from actually killing someone, so really the first casualty of war is probably a person. *snorts like a loveless pig man*

Worst #94
Which: "The system gave him a raw deal. Nobody gives him a raw deal."
Where: Raw Deal
What: ???
When: 1986
Why: Raw Deal. Raw Deal! RAW DEAL! Starring Rawnold Dealzenegger as Raw Deal
