      After Ryan, may there be no more wars

      of the most luxurious things in the world is the expensive and useless things. The first is philosophy, and the next must be war.
      Steven's war, at the beginning, the most realistic restoration of World War II scenes, resigned prayers, painful groans, and the tragic and solemn landing on the beach all hurt in the camera.
      This kind of relatively long movie generally has to be watched several times before you can watch all of it, which can also filter out time-wasting movies....

      In the hail of bullets, we hit the beach.

      June 6, 1944.
      In the hail of bullets, we hit the beach.
      Bazooka. mines. tank. machine gun. grenade. Mortar. sniper rifle.
      Another shot of morphine.
      Wade went too, which is really sad.
      How many times have you asked the Lord for the protection of the cross on your chest.
      Armored soldiers. paratrooper. captain. Central defender. corporal.
      We don't have tanks.

      war is for peace

      This is a war movie with a very high degree of scene reduction, and the humanities are also excellent, although I still feel resentment about the humanitarian feelings of the captain's squad.

      Matt Damon didn't attract my attention too much. Tom Hanks was very good, but what I admired most were the other characters with different personalities in the squad. Perhaps no matter how high their personal sentiments are, this "moral benchmark" "Class characters always make me feel sorry and...

      Talk about Urban

      In the movie the teacher showed in the class, many classmates were angry that Urban didn't go up to the clock tower to supply ammunition to his teammates in time, and called him a coward. Yes, Urban is indeed cowardly, but I believe Urban will not be so after this war. You see, at the end he shoots and kills the Nazi soldier who he had let go and avenged it. You know, even killing one person will be different from before.
      This is the first time Urban has seen so many people die, just think...

      Ryan survived with everyone's expectations on his back. Urban finally shot beyond ego, too. From the sound of the gunshots, I felt an inexplicable sense of seriousness and grief, and I finally burst into...

      When I was in junior high school, the school organized to watch this movie. At that time, I was still an ignorant child. I didn’t understand anything. I just thought it was too bloody to watch. After I came to Germany, I revisited the World War II movie. I had American friends and German classmates, but I saw a A movie about their war still touches my heart a bit seeing the last captain holding his gun so persistently at the last moment, my eyes are as wet as...

      The point of the United States is that it can make the most boring things such as the main theme and core values ​​​​with viewing value. There are not many films here that have reached this level. It seems that there is a tendency in China, that is, the "de-artistic" of the main theme, which is simply to make red songs and red films into bad ones. As if the shooting level is high, the main melody itself will be...

      75/100, of course, superb skills, whether off-screen processing or frontal depiction, the scheduling of war scenes is the pinnacle. The first time the fire was fired, the blood stained the camera, indicating that the audience was watching, and the anti-war awareness was amplified by the sense of immersion. But to my overall impressions similar to "Schindler's List", the lack of passion gives way to the output of values ​​within the framework of the main theme. It is not a true "Spielberg...

    Preparation for shooting

    Costume designer Jonah Johnston redesigned and produced 3,000 sets of fake military uniforms. He also found a company that made military boots for the U.S. Army during World War II and asked him to reproduce 2,000 pairs of military boots in the style of World War II. Special treatment is carried out to appear to have been baptized by countless battles. The prop designer Simon Atherton spent 3 months collecting and ordering 2000 weapons...

    Shooting technique

    In order to increase the sense of reality, Spielberg used almost documentary shooting techniques to shoot the first 25 minutes of the film's landing scene. Before shooting, I didn't think about the storyline at all, but used handheld cameras to track the landing soldiers for close shots most of the time. In order to be faithful to the whole story, and to truly reflect the time the story took place, Spielberg collaborated again with the...
