For starters, for the most part I do not like war movies. There are too many John Wayne's, Churck Norris's and Swartzenegger's involved which key in on sensationalism rather than what really happens when opposing combatants meet. All sense of real history and reality get lost in the mix and they end up being entertainment for those who could simply like the blood and gore that any modern day horror movie could provide. Recently, although the movie has been out for some time, I watched the entire mini-series of "the Band of Brothers". When I read the synopsis and following critiques I found that the movie was actually based on fact and it was touted as being as truthful as the movie industry could make it. I was with the 82nd Airborne so naturally I like anything associated with Army Airborne and the movie was about the 101st from D Day until the capture of Hitler's Eagles Nest. More than the actual movie, I enjoyed the small blurbs from actual WWII vets before each segment. They gave a short narration of coming events during the movie and come to find out later, each of the vets were the guys who were actually portrayed in the filming. (The ones living of course) There is some language and of course some very graphic scenes but that's what happens when even a modicum of truth concerning war is portrayed. Even though I am extremely critical of Hollywood war movie events, I do give the movie 5 stars! Anybody else see it and what did you think?
