Well everything, or at least most things, are modern in their day but I agree with you. I picked a dividing line that was charitable to Paul's generalization, bbut I remembered Platoon and Casualties of war being at or just under two hours, and from that era I'll throw Hamburger Hill on the pile. You can probably pick a few pairings of movies that that came out the same year and potentially represent the beginnings of "modern" English language war movies, depending on what you care about. The Deer Hunter/Apocalypse Now (1979, going by general release, although The Deer Hunter had a limited release December '78), Top Gun/Platoon (1986), Private Ryan/The Thin Red Line (1998).
