The baby scene in American Sniper practically ruined the whole movie for me.

Series wise I actually enjoyed Barbarians on Netflix.

You should add Letters from Iwo Jima to your movies list.
I'll have to watch those!

Operation Daybreak, I did not watch remake but original really made impression on me as a teen.
Interesting fact that I only discovered recently is that assassins were hiding in Serbian orthodox church.

Behind Enemy lines : That F18 jet scene and SAM's was epic and blew my socks off ( literally ) when I watched in the cinema :)

I forgot about this French one that is on Netflix.

I thought it wasn't too bad.


Oh yes, and this one.

There's an original movie, as well as a new TV show remake. They changed the storyline quite a bit for the remake, so it's worth watching both. Generation War is on the list.

EDIT: I fixed the Das Boot booboo
