Top Ten "Modern" War Movies

Hollywood is no stranger to the war film. In fact, it’s one of the first genres to grace the big screen way back in the early 20th century. 

There are relatively few great modern war tales when compared to cinematic masterpieces about Vietnam, the World Wars, or the U.S. Civil War. Oftentimes we need to reflect on a war and see its aftermath to really be able to put it into a cultural context in the movies, which might be why the modern warfare genre is slim compared to history that’s well in the rear view.

Nevertheless, there are indeed some fine modern military movies out there, so we thought we’d take a look at the best of the best.

Disclaimer! Anytime you throw up a top ten list, you piss off someone because their movie wasn't included.  Looking forward to the comments after.  This should be good.
