Saving Private Ryan (1998)
Sensational..a must see
Obviously you don't need me to tell you that, you probably already knew. Everything about this film was spectacular...The realism, the plot, the production value, the acting..etc all amazing. The characters are all unique and likable..with the exception of Upham(AKA the good guy you hate more than the bad guys) Several reasons for this: He's idiotic and doesn't understand war, he talks all this "humanity, and what's right BS," but when it's time to kill an enemy easily and save a fellow comrad, he's too much of a coward. He also fails in the field because he was cowardice..Though he finally shot someone, it proved useless..it only said he was willing to kill, but kill an unarmed person at point blank.(which ironically makes him more of a coward.) Other than that all characters are cool. The mysterious Miller, the tough guy Carparzo, the jolly Harvath, the defiant Reiban, the great medic Wade, the great yet unfortunate Mellish, and my personal favorite, the cool religious sniper, Daniel Jackson. You can't help but fall into the story..I mean everything is done so exceptionally, it's no wonder why this is remembered as an all-time great.
This movie is amazing. Full marks.
This movie has two parts. I suggest you watch them both in one sitting. This is based on the famous Chinese story "Journey to the West." Joker aka reincarnation of the Monkey King(Stephen Chow) delivers a lot of laughter. He get's involved in a demon women(Jing Jing, played by Karen Mok) and makes a mistake while traveling back(500 years too far). He eventually falls in love with the Zixia(Athena Chu). From there they ensure on a crazy journey fill with laughter, and love. The first part is more of a comedy with the plot leading into the second part. The second has more to do with the adventure itself. I must say the ending was touching. Sure there is lots of laughter in the movie, but the underlying love story was good. I wen't in watching and expecting all out funny, but got much more. The movie itself is very memorable. Music wise, it's spectacular. However, in the end I was kind of left in the air. I didn't have the full details as I would like. Which leaves room for a third one(unfortunately there is none) that would show conclusive ending and giving all the details.
One the whole, this movie work's for all kinds of people. It's got comedy, romance, and fighting. One of my favorites.
