What???? What is wrong with the Saving Private Ryan score????? If anybody has the answer, please let me know! Goliee! You know, in my opinion, Saving Private Ryan is one of the few great movies ever made, cause it shows the reality of war. Even after that movie came out, we still couldn't comprehend the horror of war. It's hell!!! Come on everyone. Try to think of what hell would be like to you, and you're automatically in war! John Williams is the best composer on the planet. He has been nominated for 43 academy awards for best score, and has won 5. That's pretty darn good. Some people will call me crazy, but I think that besides Jurassic Park, ET, Jaws, and Schindler's List, this is one of his BEST scores. Listen, imagine you're in a war, okay? Would you hear music playing?? HUH?? If more music had been put into it, they would have to put it into the war scenes, and that would make the score horrible. Nobody would want to hear music playing while hundreds of soldiers being killed right before the camera. The only time you heard the score was when the soldiers were taking a rest, or when the man was looking onto the grave of Capt. John Miller. Think about it people, it would be horrible with the score being played during fighting. Watch the movie again, and listen to the music and when it's being played. Soon, you'll agree with me unless your dead in the head. Steven Spielberg, the best director of our time, made an unforgettable movie depicting war, and John Williams score just helped it be an unforgettable movie depicting war.
