I agree, Pencho! It's funny, a lot of my 2010s-related poll suggestions still seem to be floating around in GS, I wonder if the admins are waiting until closer to the end of the decade to make these go live... that would make sense.

Might there still be some new releases this year that you may want to include?

For instance, Terrence Malick's new movie is a war story.

Didn't know he was doing a war picture; interesting genre for him to take on considering his track record. I'll add it now and then I'd say it's good to go

They have announced the general release date for A Hidden Life, and it's not until December. It might make more sense not to include it.

I tried to pick based on a mix of the movie's lasting influence, relevance, cultural importance, and how it was received by the audiences of their day, in relation to their own lives or experiences in war.

1940's
Best Years of Our Lives
1950's
Paths of Glory
1960's
The Dirty Dozen
1970's
The Deer Hunter
1980's
Platoon (In my opinion, this is the finest war film, ever)
1990's
The Thin Red Line
2000's
Taegukgi
2010's
TOO SOON TO TELL

Unsung Heroes (personal favorites)
Glory, '80's
Bridge on the River Kwai, 50's
Pork Chop Hill, 50's
The Longest Day, 60's
Soldier of Orange, 70's
M*A*S*H, 70's
Catch-22, 70's
We Were Soldiers, 00's
Black Hawk Down, 00's
Mother Night, 90's
Schindler's List, 90's
The Killing Fields, 80's
Salvador, 80's
Born on the Fourth of July, 80's
Heaven and Earth, 90's
Coming Home, 70's
Gardens of Stone, 80's
The Horse Soldiers, 50's

Pretty sure I'm leaving a thousand off the list.

That was omitted from the published list.
Whereas several of the films aren't war films (or ... at best postwar films).

The Death of Stalin ... albeit taking place during the Cold War... is a bit of a stretch. While Mudbound takes place completely after the finish of WWII (as memory serves me).

Wasn't sure if it was too early to add A Hidden Life (2019) but it looks like its already premiered so why not. Thank you!
