  • Band of Brothers movie

    Hello everybody,

    Has anybody watched this great epic miniseries based on Stephen Ambrose's book, "The Band of Brothers"? It has 10 parts, each about an hour and 15 minutes. I watched them on the DVDs, and oh boy, let me say this, it's a great movie!

    In my opinion, it deserves a place next to the best war movie of all, the "Saving Private Ryan." It deserves five stars and two thumbs up! I think in some areas, it's way much better than the "Saving Private Ryan," especially in the combat scenes. In some parts, the combat is an ongoing scene for nearly an hour! God, I love this, and I am thinking about buying it (I had rented the movie, costing me a bundle of money, but oh well, it was worth the price!).

    At the end, it made me burst out in tears, I salute the "Easy" Company of 101st Airborne Division. They first trained in Tocoa, leading all way to where they fought in D-Day invasion in Normandy, from there, witnessing some actions in "Market Garden" operation, Bastogne, Foy, Hangeshu, and at last capturing the Hitler's "Eagle Nest" fortress in Bavaria, Germany.

    I honestly recommend this great war movie!

        What a great series.The problem I had was the presentation of Soeble, he seemed much more of a shadowy disrespected figure in the book.
        Doesn't read Al Franken, can't watch Al Jazeera, will attack dumbasses. Anyone but Rumsfeld '04.

            true, but the book had it kinda narrarated in, the idea of him being inferior
