Another vote for "All Quiet On The Western Front" a film I'm constantly afraid they'll try to remake....but jazz it up with CGI effects.
I don't know if this qualifies as a war picture but, "Night of The Generals" and another one during war, "Where Eagles Dare". (The last is memorable as in it Mary Ure says to Richard Burton, "You're getting too old for this kind of thing...".)
And there's one from the fifties with, of all people, Tab Hunter the name of which I cannot remember.

"Hurt Locker", "BlackHawk Down" and am looking forward to "Zero Dark Thirty". For my Commonwealth mates the movie "Zulu" has always amazed me and to think it is a true story.

I really liked Act of Valor (With the real Navy Seals in the roles). Very accurate too, except for part of one scene.

Im not sure if these count, but some of my favorite war/military films are:

American Sniper
The Sniper 1
The Sniper 2
The Sniper 3

Other semi military films i like are:

Jason Bourne (all of them)
White House Down
Homefront
The Punisher (All of them)

I like the ex-military films where a man is force from retirement to settle or defend something or someone. Not much into complete military imitations like MASH and Band Of Brothers etc.

I recently saw 13 Hours. That was a good movie.
People are not limited by the circumstance that they are born in. They are limited by the size of their dreams. Show them that their dreams can have no limits and in turn their accomplishments can be limitless.

I enjoyed Lone Survivor with Mark Walhberg. Not sure how accurate it is but it certainly had me on edge.

There is a Christopher Nolan film called Dunkirk with Tom Hardy that is due out July in the UK, very much looking forward to that.

The two mini-series, "Band of Brothers" and "Pacific"

A good view is Air Force (1943).  It's an early war movie made for propaganda purposes (ie:  build up the morale on the home front).
