    The Enemy Below is a good flick. Not great, but good.

    Did I miss Apocalypse Now on this list?

    I'd vote for Private Ryan, but Hurt Locker needs a mention. Maybe MASH, too.

    Das Boot is up there. Bridge over the river Kuwai might be my top one. I also liked The English Patient. Empire of the Rising Sun

    Looking forward to 1917.

    There are plenty of movies that wouldn't make the cut as the best but a good watch. I enjoy watching foreign movies and their account of history of war.

    Something that wasn't clear to be the first time I watch in Inglourious Basterds: Colonel Landa knew who Shosanna was right away. From the jump. He was just toying with her until after the premiere, until the bigger opportunity became clear.

    Not to me. I didn't think he knew who she was. But I could be wrong.

    next time you watch, pay attention to how he keeps dropping references to dairy, the cream, etc. I think he was needling her.

    I am a fan of Cold Mountain, but the music is a big part of it.

    The crater could’ve been an entire movie.

    I asked my wife what her favorite war movie is, and I am now living through clip after clip of Mr. Roberts.

    I recommend Mr. Roberts sometime if you haven't seen it, btw.

    Absolutely adore this movie. I grew up watching this and movies like Operation Petticoat.

    I don't think I have seen Operation Petticoat. It's only because Robert Osborne didn't introduce it to me at some point. That guy could hook me into a movie like no other. Ben is okay, but man Bob could get me interested in a movie like no one. My DVR used to be full of TCM stuff just because he got me interested in what was coming on next.
