Not a big fan of Apocalypse Now but Patton is great and I will add Saving Private Ryan.

I'd have to go with Saving Private Ryan. Another good one would be Patton. Here's one you don't see on many war movies list, yet it is just about as good as they come... Glory. Another one that is good if maybe not great, that goes overlooked, Sahara with Bogart.

Zulu! Voted 8th in Britain's list of 100 Best War Films. (Okay, maybe a bit of bias on their part, as it was a British production.)

Classic hold-the-fort film. Michael Caine's first major film role.

Here's a link:

I just loved it and it was unexpected. Interesting how you are actually hoping for the submarine to make it through everything; but it does give a riveting portrayal of the general futility of war. Here's a great war flick; but with a "lighter note". KELLY'S HEROES>>>
