In 1998 Steven Spielberg gave audiences everywhere PTSD when he released his World War 2 epic, Saving Private Ryan. When it’s discovered that 3 of 4 sons are killed in battle, a General sends a Captain and his squad of Rangers on a FUBAR mission of humanity to find and return Momma Ryan's last son home. SPR features a massive cast featuring Tom Hanks, Tom Sizemore, Edward Burns, Barry Pepper, Giovanni Ribisi, Vin Diesel, Adam Goldberg, Ted Danson, Dennis Farina, Paul Giamatti, Nathan Fillion, and eventually Matt Damon. SPR was made for $70 million, brought home almost $500 million at the box office, was nominated for 11 Oscars and ended up winning 5. But, does it hold up? Listen in as Jon, Colin, and Brent discuss battle accuracy and war crimes as we decide if this is one to remember or lest we should forget.
