…. Some of Them are Doing Now.

"Where were you in the summer of 1998? Following the latest revelations in the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky escapade? Listening to the fresh new hits of the Backstreet Boys? Trying out a brand new internet tool called Google?

For many people the summer of 1998 meant coming into contact with digital music, dial-up internet, and following the ongoing sagas of E.R. and Friends. For many others the summer of 1998 meant experiencing a war movie that would forever change their lives and seep into the proud collective consciousness of a generation.

Saving Private Ryan turns 20 this summer. 20 years since that opening sequence which rocked cinemas and left audiences breathless. 20 years since Captain Miller and his squad of unsung heroes located the last remaining brother of a family that had sacrificed so much. 20 years since people started quoting Bible verses while pretending to take aim as a sniper. 20 years since the tank scene, yes, that tank scene…."

Crap am I getting old.
Best 1st half hour of a war movie BTW.

+1 Agreed

Interesting that Speilberg's 2 Best Director nods came from WWII films – SPR and Schindler's List.
