    "I watch this movie whenever I need to regain my faith in humanity. Even if Oskar Schindler was only one man, he did a truly extraordinary thing saving as many people as he could. I tear up whenever I watch this movie."

    "There's a lot of war movies out there but none of them even come close to Saving Private Ryan. I really felt like war is hell in this movie but the camaraderie between the band of brothers in this movie is amazing."
