Re: I'm just gonna start replying w/ my RYM reviews
There are lots of "small" war movies but they generally only endure in the memories of genre buffs even if they're good. They're mostly older though, since it became hard to make "genre" war movies after Vietnam. The Steel Helmet, Fixed Bayonets, Men In War, and Hell is for Heroes are all good movies and good examples, and none of them are "stereotypical" gung ho/flag waving either. The Steel Helmet, which is the best of the bunch, got a Criterion Eclipse release so whenever they come back with their own channel you can probably see it there (it had been on Filmstruck and Hulu before that).
