Top Movies of all Time according to IMDB ~ #29 Saving Private Ryan (1998)

I loved this movie.  Of course, I love Tom Hanks.  




During the Normandy landing two brothers are killed in action. In another theatre of the war the third Ryan brother is killed. Their mother is to receive all three telegrams on the same day. The United States Army Chief of Staff, George C. Marshall learns there is a fourth brother, Private James Ryan, and decides to send out 8 men (Cpt. Miller and select members from 2nd Rangers) to find him and bring him back home safe.

I think I may need to watch this movie again today.
