    "Savin Private Ryan is like the greatest war movie ever made. I mean it seriously. It's not because Spielberg made this but the whole point of this movie is just so breathtaking. The plot makes you feel like you're part of the war and seeing some of the soldiers die makes you feel the pain too. "

    "This is my son's favorite Disney Pixar film! He loves all the characters (especially Buzz and Woody) so much that he constantly checks on his toys if they'd come alive every night. Sadly, not a single move was caught in sight. "
