Itâ€™s Memorial Day weekend, and there are many war movies being shown on television. Tonight, I am watching â€œSaving Private Ryan,â€ which I believe is probably the best WWII movie ever made (and I have seen many).Every time I watch this movie, Iâ€™m reminded of something I will never quite get over. In 1998, â€œSaving Private Ryanâ€ was nominated for best picture along with â€œLife Is Beautiful,â€ â€œThin Red Line,â€ â€œElizabeth,â€ and â€œShakespeare in Love.â€ Believe it or not, â€œShakespeare in Loveâ€ won best picture and beat out â€œSaving Private Ryan,â€ to my lasting chagrin.
Now you tell me, which movie has proven to be the classic and which one has gone the way of the dodo?
(Full Disclosure: I never saw â€œShakespeare in Loveâ€ and donâ€™t ever plan to.)
