    1. "The Hunt For Red October"
    2. A little named movie starring Ed Harris and David Duchovny titled "Phantom."


    Off topic I just saw a movie with my son that had Ed Harris in it on Netflix named "The Way Back" and I highly recommend it.

    I think my favorite, other than the above mentioned HFRO, is the 1957 classic: "The Enemy Below", with Robert Mitchum and Curt J├╝rgens.

    If you like movies with deep bass then U-571 is your movie.

    The best comparison to real submarine life is Down Periscope. Next in line, is U-571. Then, you can move onto K-19: The Widowmaker. K-19 isn't scientifically accurate by any stretch of the imagination, but it is cool nonetheless. The Hunt for Red October is by far the worst submarine movie ever... That is followed very closely by Crimson Tide. They are both completely and utterly screwed up and in no way accurate.

    Fiction is supposed to be inaccurate by definition. ;)

    I just about bought that movie, but opted for something else.
