So true weird story here-I woke up this morning and said "I want to see Saving Private Ryan again." I've been saying for months they don't ever show that on TV, and that's wrong. So I go buy the movie today-and it comes on TNT. No big deal really, since I hate edited movies, but ironic nonetheless...


I think SPR is probably the finest WWII film ever made, with the possible exception of Patton, or maybe The Longest Day (I love that movie).



if u like wwII movies check out to hell and back its really good
i love to hunt and lite things on fire

Yeah ABC (I think) used to show Saving Private Ryan on Memorial Day unedited, but here in Central Texas they stopped this year.

Yes black hawk down is based in a true story.. Loosely. They make out our troops to be saints and heros. But we deserved what we got.

I liked that SPR was a lot more gritty, more muted colors, you felt like you were running around constantly. It was better too.

Did anyone else know the funny truth about Black Hawk Down?

The US Government will approve war films and sometimes lend them vehicles to use for the films. This brings down the budget cost of the film and at the same time gives the US Military a 2-hour long advertisement.

Cooperation approved. But the Pentagon did insist on one important change: the name of McGregor's character, a real-life Army Ranger named John Stebbins, couldn't be used in the film. Stebbins was one of the heroes of the battle of Mogadishu and won a Silver Star, but by the time the script was submitted for approval, he had been court-martialed for molesting a 12-year-old boy. The military didn't want anything to do with him, so McGregor's character was renamed Danny Grimes.

Interesting. They probly dont want everyone remembering his as a hero. The people that have organizations that do things like create databases for sex offenders would deffinatly have a problem with a film depicting him as a war hero instead of a predator of little children, wich really, when i think about it, isnt really bad. The army was also ashamed of his actions.

The only 2 war DVD's I own are Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down....SPR is easily 10X better than BHD, I'm sorry, but it's true.

BHD was good the first time I saw it. But after the initial awesomeness wears thin it becomes pretty lame.

With SPR you become attached to almost every character.

I really did enjoy the Band of Brothers series aswell. It slowed down towards the end but was a worthwhile experience.

The Thin Red Line was decent...I never saw it to the ending though. It came out almost the same time as Saving Private Ryan, which was a disaster. There are quite a few old ones, but I highly recommend The Longest Day.

I think you're referring to shows like Green Berets-which was a terrible movie. I agree-John Wayne was the original Chuck Norris/Steven Seagal Superman-style movie.
