    Saving Private Ryan

    ★★★★

    So it seems fashionable to rate this movie based solely on if it's an anti-war movie. There is of course a problem with a movie like this portraying itself as anti-war while still buying into a lot of tropes that make movies romanticize war. You can fault it for that, for sure.

    It's pretty obvious this isn't an anti-war movie but it is other things. A cheesy drama. An intense spectacle of action par to almost none. A very humanizing look at combat. And an influence to almost every war movie or game that has come out since, and by that right it's undeniably an achievement.

    The buildup for the ending is so intense, but it honestly kinda drags a bit. Especially during a rewatch. Could be at least 20 minutes shorter without losing much. Other than that it's a great movie.
