Band Of Brothers is a great series, regardless of some peoples ill opinions.

Amoung war movies my favorite World War Two films would have to be:

Tora! Tora! Tora! Band Of Brothers (Series) Saving Private Ryan The Longest Day Sands of Iwo Jima Windtalkers (Regardless of historical inaccuracies) Enemy At the Gates Sink The Bismark 12 O'clock High Flying Leathernecks A Bridge Too Far Patton The Dirty Dozen The Great Raid

''When Trumpets Fade'' is a pretty good movie. ''El Alamein'' is also very good.

"The Eagle Has Landed" or something like that is another semi-decent movie. It's about some fictional German commando team sent to Britain to kill Churchil. Definately not the greatest (I found that the majority of Stens were fired from the hip being pretty funny), but interresting nonetheless.

Von Mudra;4558709The Great Escape, those are damn good.

The Great Escape also lacks realism.

One movie that hasn't been mentioned here is All Quiet on the Western Front. Sure its quality isn't all that good, but its an awesome movie far ahead of its time (1930). Based on WW1 of course, from a German viewpoint. Very memorable characters I must say. I haven't seen the remake so I can't comment on it. There's a reason its in the IMDB top 250.

EDIT: Going through the IMDB top 250 I found Paths of Glory, which I'm for sure going to watch this weekend, a Stanley Kubrick WW1 movie.

The Great Escape is just a good movie. Really entertaining. The Longest Day is also good. Man, there are so many I like but can't remember the names. I have dozens of them in my DvD collection. Must go search.

Yes! thats a great movie! The book and movie were written and produced by a German soldier who was in the trench's himself, rumor has it though that he is very Anti-War.
