I'll take "Band of Brothers", "Downfall", "Schindler's List", "Conspiracy", "Grey Zone" and "Saving Private Ryan" for more recent and accurate WWII flicks.
Loved Band of Brothers so much I bought the DVD Box Set. There was another movie that I saw on HBO awhile back about the US and Phillipine forces combining to over take the Japanese before they killed the American POWs. They were killing them by pushing them into holes, poring gas on them, lighting them on fire, then shooting any of them that tried to run away...it was a great movie but can't remember the name of it.

But if anyone knows any other great WWII movies, post them. Lately I've really been into that type of film.
