Das boot***
Kellys Heroes
Where Eagles Dare
Tora Tora Tora
Pearl Harbor... (just kidding, its terrible).

There is a very good German WWII movie, essentially a "Band of Brothers" except that its
done from a German Squad perspective on the Eastern Front. I saw it once on cable, I CANNOT REMEMBER THE NAME OF IT, it's a foreign film, but its excellent. Somebody help me out here???


If you want a good Civil War Movie, 'Glory'.

Don't listen to them...... The real enthousiast would be:
1) The Cross of Iron (absolute master movie by Sam Peckinpah)
2) Glory (nice performance by Denzel Washington)
3) Broke back Mountain (comtemporary cowboymovie, which make you re-think the images you always had of Cowboy )
