    without question

    Even though it is a made for TV movie, it is by far the BEST ever produced and shown on a television screen. You get to know them personally and you feel their pain and you feel their emotions from beginning to end.

    BAND OF BROTHERS

    For theater type movie

    Pearl Harbor

    for the Fantastic computer generated recreations. I have always tried to visualize the way it was and I was a part of "Tora Tora Tora" when it was filmed in Hawaii in the early 70s. I was stationed at Kaneohe M.C.A.S. at the time and they used a lot of service guys for fill ins and what was a trip about it all was they announced for weeks on the TV stations and Radio Stations that there was going to be some reenactments and for the populace not to worry. regardless some of the folks who lived thru the first attack were still edgy and when they brought in the Jap Zeros to do the filming, it freaked many people out and many went to the hospitals. Peal Harbor does a far better job than was done with the technology of TORA TORA TORA.

    I was a young teenage boy when I saw it, living on an isolated farm in South Dakota. It made me realize the world involved a lot more than just slopping the hogs and shooting gophers on Sundays.

    Saving Private Ryan.

    For the time (late 90's), it had amazing sound, incredible special effects, and a great storyline.

  14. Gone With The Wind It shows the pain and suffering without actually showing the gore and just plain meanness that is so prevelent in today's movie offerings that fail to leave anything to the imaganation. Followed closely by Cold Mountain I've heard stories from those who experanced the horror that was the civil war on the homefront Alas they and their stories now belong to the ages.

    My father was something of a baseball phenom at his high school. He got a visit from a pro scout the same day he got his draft notice. Joined the Marines and was shot in the leg in Korea. He played company baseball after the service but none of the pros would talk to him because of his injury and questionable durabilty. I watched the man have an unassisted triple play, I dunno how many double plays and hit three home runs in a single game at the age of 32. At the age of 40, he was at one of my high school track practices and borrowed my extra pair of spikes and ran an 11.6 100 yard dash in street clothes on a cinder track.
