As for my picks
1. Saving Private Ryan
2. Band of Brothers
These two just for the feel of realism
3. To Hell and Back (gotta love Audie Murphy)
I love the scene where he is calling in arty on the troops in the field and the arty guy on the radio asks how close are they and Audie responds hold on MACK, Ill let ya talk to em or something like that.

The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )
1st July 1916
Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
In memory of Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, Edward Wilson, Henry Bowers, Lawrence Oates and Edgar Evans. South Pole Expedition, 30th March 1912.
If we are talking about ww1 onward that is one thing but movies can go back to cave man time so i think it would be appropriate to say great movies from ww1 on?
Alot of you here have mentioned movies that i had forgotten about and rate right up there. The list would probably be around 12 for me.
