... when Das Boot has already been made, thus ending any other movie's chance of ever being considered the classic sub film?

Das Boot is all kinds of great, but if I had to pop any of these titles into my DVD player, I'm going with Red October.

I can't remember a musical on a submarine, therefore, the genre is not dead yet.

Baz? Anyone?

Ok, I'm a big macho bastard but EVERY time I see the noble sacrifice of one person for their love who then yells at them not to give up as they are being revived I cry like a little girl experiencing her first bee sting.

A lot of good films up there, but Das Boot is the shit, especially the extended director's cut etc.
