SAVING PRIVAYE RYAN

AMC, 6:00 p.m. ET

 

You aren’t going to be able to see many better, or more appropriate, Memorial Day movies than this one. Made in 1998, and directed by Steven Spielberg, it begins with one of the most jarring and intense war movie scenes ever put on film – and keeps going. Tom Hanks stars as a captain given a particularly risky humanitarian mission, of finding and escorting back to safety Private Ryan (Matt Damon), the only surviving son of a woman who lost her three other boys to war the same day. Co-stars include Paul Giamatti, Tom Sizemore, Vin Diesel, Jeremy Davies, Adam Goldberg and Edward Burns.
