What Are Some Great Movies About War?

We're watching Gettysburg, which is a great education in the Civil War for our 15-year-old son. What are other great movies about battles and war?

I'm looking for some suggestions on stories/books/films to borrow (i.e. steal) ideas from

I'm writing a war/horror story where two groups of sworn enemies band together to defeat a common foe. I'm looking for some suggestions on stories/books/films to borrow (i.e. steal) ideas from. Already thought of "Hell in the Pacific" and "Joyeux Noël" which deal with similar themes, but I was hoping you all could suggest some others....

Help me understand the cold war--or at least a mediocre movie

I have several questions about the 2006 movie The Good Shepherd with Matt Damon, and I haven't been able to find answers from my usual sources. I'm hoping Robert DeNiro is a secret MeFi fan and will step in, providing closure. [spoilers ahoy!] [more inside]

War, what is it good for? About four hours viewing.

Do I watch Flags of our Fathers or Letters from Iwo Jima first? Also, Should I watch one after the other, or allow time to ponder?

WWII Movies

War Movies: I'm looking for any good movies about World War II, specifically to do with civilian life (rather than military actions.) I've seen Au Revoir Les Enfants and The Diary of Anne Frank - can you suggest any others you've enjoyed?
