How about

--The year of living dangerously
--Don't cry its only thunder
--The animated series "Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood" (lots of NWO parallels in there)
--Lord of the Rings, Two Towers, and Return of the king (NWO parallels overcoming great odds.
--Hungergames (the book trilogy series more so than the movie but the movie is good too)
--Children of Men (this one is self explanitory

Additionally,

Voces Inocentes, A Time for Drunken Horses, & Turtles Can Fly depict the ravaging effects of empire.

Mmmm, and The Deer Hunter will absolutely break your heart.

The Patriot
Braveheart

Shenendoah - great anti-war

Shenendoah - great anti-war movie with Jimmy Stewart

"You must be frank with the world; frankness is the child of honesty and courage...Never do anything wrong to make a friend or keep one...Above all do not appear to others what you are not" - Robert E. Lee, CSA

Also: Legends of the Fall

Similar themes, with Anthony Hopkins & Brad Pitt. But for the most powerful anti-war speech I've seen in a movie, check out The Americanization of Emily. This clip is the best scene in the movie.

Larken Rose's book is excellent as well.
For liberty.

Not surprisingly, most post

Not surprisingly, most post apocalyptic movies as well.

The Matrix, Logan's Run, Gattaca, Starship Troopers, Farenheit 451, Alphaville, etc, etc.

All about big government gone too far.

The original Star Trek series always had some great gems.
