    Will have to check out "Downfall". For sure, Saving Private Ryan, made a big impact when I first saw it on the big screen but most certainly has not lasted very well with me either.

    Lets see what else comes to mind...The Enemy Below, not bad.

      I think what spoilt Saving Private Ryan for me was the excellent Band of Brothers series. Most of the episodes from the latter, I thought, is way better than most of the former.

      Even if the gore in BOB wasn't quite as much as the SPR, BOB simply struck me as more honest and real.

        That would be "Twelve O'Clock High."

          The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on.

            A fine list except for U571.............that one usually makes the worst list. And Gods and Generals hypes Jackson way too much, though the battle scenes are quite well done.
