The last samurai is worth a mention.

It's about maverick and that chinese guy from inception. They team up and kill some Japs. Good flick

Flags of our fathers - more like f ags of our fathers (my dad's favorites were Ramon and Troy). That movie was fucking shit. The old bastard did a better job with Iwo Jima.

Other than that, solid list.

why can't they make a movie like Saving Private Ryan about one of the greatest battle in the history of War?

People shit on this film for its silly propaganda, but seen as properly as a revenge film (Mel loves making these) and not a historical war drama, it's pretty awesome. Jason Isaacs is a good bad guy in it too.

The scene where is he wiping out an entire British unit with a tomahawk along with his two traumatized young sons kicks ass.

Saving Private Ryan will always be the GOAT and it's not even close. Just the opening scene alone is better than entire war movies.
Black Hawk Down was great also.
I'd add The Hurt Locker since every other movie that comes to mind has been mentioned...
