SECOND PLACE DOESN'T CONCERN ME
I can only guess that I am more moved by brilliant soundtracks than others - 'cause I think Das Boot is a great movie

This post is BABIP-lucky.
Although they're not better than most of the sub films listed above, I'll add the following to the list:
Ice Station Zebra
On the Beach
Hollywood will have trouble topping HFRO. I figure in about 10 years, it'll be remade and that'll be a shame.

I vote for Das Boot as the best sub movie ever.
I am not a huge movie buff, but I do have a shelf of about 40 U-boat books and a few books about American WWII submarines. I have read most of them multiple times.
There are also some cool U-boat simulation computer games.
The Battle of the Atlantic is the most interesting aspect of WWII. The Nazi wolfpack attacks on Allied convoys are gritty, intense and dramatic. The air combat over Europe is also awesome to learn about.

I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
