Saving Private Ryan  AUG 04 1998

Usually when the hype machine is up and running on a film, I tend to be a little sceptical about it, even when I've seen it and enjoyed it. A lot of "yeah, I liked it, but...." I love to ride the backlash.

Saving Private Ryan is the hyped movie of the moment. I liked it. That's it. I liked it. It was a good movie. I don't care if it's not the best war picture ever made. Or the bloodiest. Or the most shell shocking. Or if Tom Hanks' character was too Mr. Goody Two Shoes. It was just good. I went twice and it was good both times. And I'd recommend it to friends.
