I haven't seen Schindler's List in many years. Since so many of you are calling it a war movie, now I am really wondering. I only remember the factory, concentration camp and ghettos.

Were there any war scenes where soldiers are fighting?

Actually Gladiator had a great battle in the begining, but one battle doesn't make it a war movie.

Has anyone seen Horashio Hornblower series on the Naval war fighting Nepolean, superb stuff, I have all the 8 DVDs from that series.

Band of Brothers is on more amazing series, this one is based on true story.

My vote goes to Saving private Ryan and Black Hawk Down for realism.. Fact is, war is a messy business, then and now, in spite of all that point and shoot technology.

Other favourites are The Great escape and Guns of Navarone (Alistair Mclean is my all time fav author).

Edit: What about "Troy".. The famous Trojan Horse and the face that launched a thousand ships.
