    Ahh yes, I love the old WW2 movies. This one is almost too graphic though. And Private Ryan is from Iowa.

    Re: Saving Private Ryan

    the opening 30-35 minutes of that movie is about as good as it gets for telling a story as real as a movie can IMO

    The opening 15 minutes, really shows the sacrifice that was made. I had a hard time watching it at the theater when it came out. Freedom's we enjoy really has it's price.

    Re: Saving Private Ryan

    My friend warned me before I watched it last year about how graphic the first 15-20 minutes were. The part that really made me gag was when the sniper shot Vin Diesel(don't know his character's name). His leg was messed up!

    They certainly made an effort to capture the hell that was that beach head. I've never been in combat so I don't know how well they captured the details but it certainly leaves an impression

    Should you really mention the SS in a pro-American WWII discussion?
