Rent it: Band of Brothers.

Via on Jan 7, 2011

The truly epic true story of Easy Company, produced by Tom Hanks & Steven Spielberg.

It was perhaps the first thing I rented on Netflix a few years back. It’s moving, well-produced, and Major Winters is a grounded example of gentle, true leadership. A reminder to all of us Peace-on-Earth-lovers that war has its horrors, and its uncommon bonds, and its dignity, and its tragedy.

A few scenes to give you an idea of the depth and quality:

  1. I am sure it is a very good movie, unfortunately I cannot watch these genre as i get nightmares, it just fills my head with horror…maybe related to having grown up in Argentina during the time of the "desaparecidos"… great cast and production though

  2. I couldn't agree more. I've seen the entirety of this series at least 10-15 times & it moves me every time. The reality of life as a soldier needs to be highlighted, no matter the era.

  3. […] more, watch Band of Brothers. There’s no better way to remember how war really is, unvarnished, warts and all, heroism, […]

    Love that I follow elephant. Love that my husband wrote the bible and was supervising producer on the series, as well as writing three of the episodes — one that Tom directed… And love that tonight, my two very different worlds have collided. Synchronicity — at least for me — indeed. Thank you. Vennie Bobis Jendresen.
