Summary: Good film but no masterpiece
Comment: The first scenes of "Saving Private Ryan" are spectacular. You are with the landing force as it hits the beach at Normandy. Shells are exploding, landing craft are blowing up and machine gun bullets are pinging off of metal. Craft bow hatches are let down only to let machine gun bullets enter and wipe out the would-be invaders. Still other soldiers, loaded down with ammo and weapons, jump out into deep water to sink and drown on the spot.

Survivors scramble to the beach where they are shot down in the scores. Eventually, they organize, push through with Bangalor mines and are able to destroy points of German resistance. Germans who surrender are mown down without mercy. [Hey, What about the Geneva Convention?]. After this exciting segment, the movie settles down to a pretty average World War II movie. We win most of the fights.

Summary: D-pressing
Comment: I know a lot of people consider this some kind of classic, but I find it to be one of the most depressing films I've ever watched. I'll take "To Hell and Back," "The Big Red One," or "Sands of Iwo Jima," to name a few, over this film anyday.

I know "War is Hell," and a terrible thing and all, but I don't need those facts driven home quite this forcibly.

This movie is a bummer to watch and I'll never watch it again (with all due respect to Tom Hanks, a great actor)!

Summary: One of the best WWII movies for me
Comment: The only other thing that comes close to this is the Band of Brothers mini series. Very cool and well done.

Summary: Nothing else compares...except Band of Brothers.
Comment: The best WWII film ever made. I've got a bunch of other movies in the genre and nothing comes close to the realism and the quality of the film making. There is an aura to this movie. The way the colors are sort of drab and drowned out is amazing. It gives you a sense of being there. I think about this movie a lot lately. I dunno why, but I always want to put it in. I pray that someone makes something close to how good this is some day. I feel like we've reached the top and there's no place left but down. If you haven't picked this up, go to best buy or circuit city. You can get it for $5.99 for God's sake! There is no reason to not own this if you are interested in WWII at all. A masterpiece!
