Some military movies got overlooked in the recognition department. I liked "The Siege of Firebase Gloria"-just because R. Lee Ermey rocked it with his one-liners! What other less-known tasty military nuggets are out there, possibly undiscovered?

Enemy at the Gates with Jude Law is also a great movie that is under-rated - probably because the Soviets became our enemies after WWII.

Vietnam era Go Tell the Spartans and a Rumor of War are pretty good... a Marine Boot Camp movie called Tribes was what inspired me to join the Corps...

Enemy at the gates has a strong cast despite being relatively under the radar with Jude Law, James Woods, Ron Perleman. it was another great film.

One of the best movies I've seen that got very little press was "Taking Chance". Really powerful story with Kevin Bacon as a Marine returning a fallen Marine to his home that really grabbed hold of me and stirred some emotions that I usually keep buried pretty deep.

Excellent choice. This was hard but necessary film to watch. HBO did well and Kevin Bacon was outstanding IMO paying respect to the Marine Corp and the honor escorting a fallen service member home. Tears will fall.

Personally I think Heartbreak Ridge has some of the best one liners out of any military movie ever. Plus we've all seen the salty E7 trying to sort out his jacked up group of junior enlisted while at the same time putting up with the harebrained ideas of the officers above him. All time classic in my opinion.

My DI was an extra in that movie. Although I'll admit I didn't recognize him when I watched it. Loved the movie
