    Saving Private Ryan just was just on, it's one of the best.

    Band of Brothers series was pretty dang good, too. I just got The Pacific for Christmas, I'll let you know how it rates later!

    The old "Wake Island" movie, filmed shortly after it happened back when they thought all the Marine defenders died, was a good one, too.

    The Longest Day, A Bridge Too Far, and The Bridge On The River Kwai were always my favorite till The Band Of Brothers series.

    Didn't care much for Pacific.

    I kinda figured that "Pacific" was along the lines of "Band of Brothers", except being it was the war with Japan of course....Is it not?

    I thought the action scene's in Pearl Harbor were outstanding, Windtalkers was also very good. Can't belive noone said Full Metal Jacket that is a good one also.
