I agree whether it be the stand of St Elmos fort, the raid by the cavalry mistaken for a relief force just as seems the walls will be taken. The 'cowardly' Spanish knight who (twice) is accused of feigning wounds to escape the fighting and is imprisoned, begs to be released and dies holding a breech in the Walls almost single handed.

Always imagined Patrick Stewert as De Valleta

Excellent choice IC, the siege of Malta was a colossal event in history(by the way, in Italian, we use the word "kolossal" to describe grandiose and spectacular movies)
Unfortunately not all colossal events led to kolossal movies.

I would also like to see a cinematographic transposition of the life of Alfonso Felici, the most decorated soldier of WWII...When reading what he went through during the conflict I was likeThat's impossible!
The flick of course would be filled with fighting scenes, extremely emotional moments and unexpected and dramatic turn of events.

Siege of Malta would be amazing

I would make a movie about the Paraguayan War.
A Epic about the Dutch-portuguese war in colonial Brazil
A movie about the Native american resistance.
A movie about the Assyrian Empire.
And the Life of Ramisess III with emphasis on the war against the Sea Peoples and the Harem conspiration

I thought a Band of Brothers-esque miniseries about the 'forgotten' battle of the Zulu War would be quite interesting. Ulundi, Gingindlovu etc... however it's not mainstream enough! I can dream...
