Well, since you ask about movies...

Cross of Iron (WW2, Crimea)  Good scenario ideas for SG (just to keep
on topic).

Sink the Bismarck!

Stalingrad (I think that's the name of that German movie from a few

Any of the Sharpe's videos (though these are not that easy to find as

Aliens (yes, obvious)

Outland (with Sean Connery as a US Marshal in space)


Zulu Dawn

Shout at the Devil (a little hoky, but I enjoyed it)

55 Days in Peking (are you finding a pattern here?)

I can't think of a really good space combat flick, though (I mean FT
related, not FMAS or SG).
