Love them when they're good. I wish we had more cold war thrillers that were "true stories"

Its a Tom Hanks movie. He knows how to pick the roles. He hasn't made much as in the way as a producer or director, but he did collaborate with Spielberg on SPR and other good movies.

I really can't think of a single movie he's been in that is bad. I think the worst I could say any movie he's been in is "average".

Only ones I can think of are Angels and Demons wasn't very good - and neither was Inferno.

Besides that I've loved all his movies. And Band of Brothers is like 100000/10.

You should also watch "The Pacific" if you haven't. Different than BoB but awesome.

It takes a little longer to "get into" because they are much slower on character development, and follows different story lines instead of just one journey. By the end of the third one I was hooked though.

I liked AaD and Inferno, but I kinda like mystery thrillers. Wife and I watched Murder on the Orient Express and really liked it. Really wish they would stop making Star Wars heros into villans in those movies.

Tom Hanks stock in the really late 80s and early 90s was on the downfall though. Hell he was passed up to play Mario in the SMB movie in favor of Bob Hoskins. Probably a good thing in order to keep his name off that hot garbage.

So were the people from Band of Brothers. Yes a lot of them died, but I felt like a core survived. At least the core they centered around.

And yes, Ill take real and authentic story over just a work of fiction set in a real event. Even though those movies/stories can be really good as well.
