I loved the Pianist, Brody was such a good actor in that! I also loved that the German officer gave him a helping hand. I think it set an example that most of these guys aren't bad, which they werent they were just doing their job.

I thought one of the best military movies was "Garden of Stones". Also some others are "Once an Eagle" with Sam Elliot and the "Pentagon Wars".
Great war movies have already been listed.

My List is similar to yours really:
For WW2, its Savinf Private Ryan.
For more modern warfare, it would be Blackhawk Down.

Tears of the Sun isnt too bad either but it certainly cant compare with the first 2 i mentioned.
