There was too much of the sappy stuff for me in
. Perhaps it was the contrast of all the kitsch with the brilliant Omaha Beach scene I didn't like. Spielberg ruined many great movies by tacking on disturbingly sweet endings (or beginnings)…
, on the other hand, told many different stories in many different styles (the series was done by several directors, and it showed). Interesting that they made such a great series from a mediocre-to-lousy book… Stephen Ambrose's 'fact' book was a rather unpleasant read.
There was another (indy) war movie I really liked -
A Midnight Clear.
It was a rather different experience as it came from a totally different angle, but it was a quite faithful 'translation' of a novel.
Like Remus I'm a fan of war movies (watched quite some of them at theaters and own a drawer full of war DVDs).
Motto of the 54th Groove Bde.
