    "Saving Private Ryan is a touchstone of American cinema. The genre would not be the same without the realism displayed in this film. I remember seeing the Normandy landing when I was still a child and it just about frightened me to tears. Tom Hanks, Matt Damon and even Tom Sizemore made powerful performances. This movie is a must see for any movie goer who appreciates historical fiction."

    "Generation War gives you the German point of view of WWII, which is an interesting concept in itself. It's in three parts and it's a highly rated mini series. Most people who end up watching it actually like it. "
