Since this question is about movies, and not DVD features, I'm moving this to Movie Talk.

Thin Red Line feels very real in the mind of a soldier.

star wars. excellent choice.

i'll chime in with
full metal jacket
"what can i get for five dollars?"
saving private ryan
glory
and band of brothers.
band of brothers is not a movie but the action and drama is better than anything i have seen in a film. it is also more historically accurate than many other films that are dramatized for audiences.
