I plan to be a historian, too.

I recommend "Jack of all Trades" (TV show). The obvious historical inaccuracies are what make it so hilarious.

300 (had nothing to do with actual battle of Thermopylae, but still. The fights were bad ass.)

Nice thread, I too have a Bachelor's in History so I appreciate good historical films. Most of my favorites have already been mentioned so I'll chime in with a few others.

Ghandi, its long as hell, but a good look at the independence of India. Was that the last movie released with an actual intermission included?

Midway, I loved the game of Cat and Mouse between the Japanese and American fleets.

Patton, Excellent rendition of the general by George C. Scott.

Nixon, A fairly even-handed review of the former President. Pretty surprising for an Oliver Stone film. I didn't expect to like it, but I did.

There are many others but these come to mind now. I'll throw in Boogie Nights while I'm at it. It's not exactly high-minded history, but it's still a damn good movie filmed true to the period setting.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
