And this may be heresy, but I think Peter Jackson did a better job of this than of LOTR.
Very different and I wouldn't try to compare. Much more 'evocative vignettes of the horrors of war from the POV of someone with an active imagination' and not an attempt at photorealistic "you're right there in the action"
