wow i wish all my DVD's werent packed up still. i would just list what war movies i have.
should i try by memory?
lots of greats already mentioned...
Saving Private Ryan
Band of Brothers
FULL. METAL. JACKET.
We were soldiers
wind talkers (not great, but i'm a cage fan and also part native american)
that's all i can remember at the moment. some others i need to buy that are greats:
flags of our fathers
countdown... something? with the USS Nimitz, i just got orders to that ship!
behind enemy lines (love gene hackman in this. he makes a great CO)
enemy at the gates (just saw a short documentary on this guy. amazing...)
Sniper (the trilogy?!)
the pianist (good POV from civilian side)
thats about all i can think of.
and i dont know why but i saw thin red line not long ago and hated it?! i'd have to see it again to tell you exactly why. maybe i was in the wrong mood or something, but the pacing was terrible, acting sucked, and the action was just way too fake looking. especially when compared to private ryan or band of brothers.

Two words...Iron Eagle
J/K Full Metal Jacket is the one I can watch over and over. R. Lee Ermey is the man. They should make a 25th figure out of him.
And not really a war movie but A Few Good Men was damn good.

My current favorite would be We Were Soldiers. Easily one of the most moving war movies I've ever seen.
Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down would be at the top of the list for me also.
However, my sentimental favorite and one that I watched all the time when I was a kid is Memphis Belle. It's a little hokey nowadays, but still really entertaining.
