The Kenblog: The Opening Sequence In “Saving Private Ryan” Is The Most Harrowing Way To Honor The D-Day Invasion!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a one way I can honor those who fell during the historic invasion of Normandy, or D-Day, which is marking it’s 80th anniversary this week. A lot of the classic war films of the 1940s, 50s, and 60s had their hearts in the right place, but neither the technology or the inventiveness to make it truly immersive. Then Steven Speilberg comes along in 1998 and knocks our collective socks off with “Saving Private Ryan.” While an excellent movie all around, “Saving Private Ryan” really excells in the opening 10 minute in which Captain Miller (Tom Hanks) and his team land on the beach at Normandy. It’s exciting, enthralling, and terrifying all in equal measure and nothing that follows quite matches it. I can’t think of a better way to honor those who fell than by showing the closest approximation to the terror that those brave soldiers went through. Keep that in mind as you watch this clip! So Sayeth The Kendog!
