Memorial Day is dedicated to the men and women who gave their lives for this country. My respect and gratitude is beyond comprehensible and there are some great stories and video games spawned from what they have done in the past. It's going to be a beautiful day and I will be spending it with some family and friends and hope you guys will be doing the same. It's a good time to relax enjoy good food and the company around you to remember what has happened before your time. Here are two of my favorite war movies.
If you have seen this film or know anything about it your mind will probably be drawn to the iconic opening scene. The gruesome depiction of D-Day would have been enough for everyone to remember it if the film had ended right there. This story is very different than Apocalypse Now. It tells more of a story about the bond that men form when they are fighting for the same cause. It's something that those who have not served really can't comprehend but I think it's a feeling stronger than love. All of the supporting cast around Hanks does a superb job as well. The raw emotion in this film is the best depiction of a war that I have ever seen and just the raw effect on the human psyche. If you have not seen this film yet please take the time to watch it. It reminds me of Apocalypse Now only because of the amount of high brow actors in it.
I want to thank everyone who follows my blog, sorry I don't have time for a longer post but I hope you enjoy your holiday and on top of the movies I hope you guys take the time to enjoy a few video games inspired from the wars of our past. I want you to explore the world outside of CoD because there are some really good shooters available on all platforms. I am predominantly an RPG gamer but I love a good FPS. Oh and here's a little present for all of you that have followed me.
