'Hell is for heroes', is a pretty good old school war movie (B&W).. McQueen, Coburn, and a very young Bob Newhart

I'll go a bit less popular/less famous- Pink Floyd's The Wall. Those war scenes and the animated segments always send chills down my spine whenever I see it.

I always find lower budgeted or bizarre or slightly off kilter war films to have a bigger impact on me. There is something when a war film is shot plainly or when you get the sense that what you see on the screen is the extent of the set. It's that type of feeling of isolation and lonliness that always creeps me out.

1941, Kelly's Heroes, Great Escape and while not a movie, Band of Brothers should be included.

Great Movie!

Love in the end when all the Germans surrender to get the water that the shell exposed
One of the few people who know it. I mentioned it to my uncle once who was a big WWII movie buff and he didn't know what I was talking about.

yeah i forgot about this one too, absolutely brilliant. ragtag force in a desolate landscape overcoming insane odds. amazing that it was made in 1942, the war was still going pretty poorly for the allies.

Downfall, it shows Hitler in his final days, based on true events...it's in german with subtitles....i'm not a hitler fan by all means...but it's just interesting to see him falling apart in his secret bunker right before the Russians took Berlin

i'm sure some of you have seen it....i LOVE that movie...filmed in 2003 or so, was up for an oscar for best foreign film

Father Goose, yea its fucking gay but i love it and watch it every time its on, there were a lot of films of the "era" that dealt in directly with the war, i like those as much as the shootem up flicks

oh and down fall has to be one of the best films ive ever seen, and i watch a lot of movies.
