Saving Private Ryan (Paramount 1998)
Saving Private Ryan is hands down the greatest war movie ever made...period. So many times I have pointed out in my blog, liberal actors and directors (such as Tom Hanks and Stephen Speilberg) can make the greatest conservative movies ever made. This film is no different.
Ever wonder why that is? It's easy, really. Conservative theme movies sell. Go to Blockbuster someday and look to see how many people rented Milk this weekend. Not many.
However, when you talk to people about greatest movies of all time, Ryan is usually close to the top of everyone's list! If you haven't seen it, where the heck have you been?
This movie has everything a conservative would like in movie! Honest to God heroes, American sacrifice and patriotism.
Here is the review from IMDb...
During WWII, Chief of Staff, General Marshall is informed that three of a woman's sons have been killed and that she's going to receive the notifications of their demise at the same time. And when he learns that a fourth son is still unaccounted for, the General decides to send a unit to find him and bring him back, despite being told that it's highly unlikely that he is still alive and the area that he was known to be at is very dangerous. So the unit consisting of 8 men are sent to find him but as stated it's very dangerous and one by one, each of them are being picked off. Will they find him and how many of them will still be alive.
Here is the trailer...
