The Great Escape
The Eagle Has Landed
Band of Brothers
Saving Private Ryan started with potential, but fell way short after Omaha Beach.
U-90210 was too Hollywood. I'm surprised they didn't have female crew members (a big tata'ed bimbo and a femanazi) and a fashionably effeminate, foppy, dandy crew member and a leftist pacifist crew member and a rabidly environmentalist crew member in it. I mean, other than rewriting history (IIRC the Brits captured Enigma prior to Pearl Harbour) and the crew selection and the ease in which they out foxed those mean old Germans......... At least Harvey Keitel didn't have his obligatory ass showing scene.

The great escape
Saving private Ryan
Too late the heroe
Thats all I can think of now. There is one movie that I did not like that I hear alot of you guys did like which is Wind Talkers. I thought the acting was kinda hooky and there was too much Hollywood in it. I did like to see all of the Thompson's in it but even that couln't save the movie for me. Also, to prove to my wife that I'm not nuts, how many of you will put in one of your favorite war movies and breakdown one of your guns and clean it? I do it all of the time! Everyone have a great weekend!

The Battle of the Bulge. Good Stuff.

one guy I interviewed went from North Africa to the battle of the bulge and was finally wounded there.
He received 5 silver stars and of course a Purple Heart.
