Band of Brothers
« on: March 10, 2008, 08:59:33 AM »
Did anyone watch this first time around? I was lent the dvd box set on Friday. I sat and watched the entire thing through on Saturday. When the Americans get something right they are truly outstanding. Amazing piece of television.

Can't say I have seen it but should the opportunity arise I shall keep your recommendation in mind.

If you like 'Saving private Ryan' you'll like band of brothers, made by Speilberg and tom hanks about the same subject but fron D-day to Germany.

In my defense, whilst I do watch/read a lot of fluff I can do the good stuff too.

Band of Brothers was stunning not only in terms of acting, but the cinematography and the shooting style was more like that of a big budget film than a tv programme.

TBH I didn't really rate "Saving Ryan's Privates" much ...... too much F'ing Yanks winning the war on their own for my taste.

If you can get over the fact that they are American Snoops it is amazing.
