I have to agree with the TV series Band of Brothers, great stuff!
But what's with all the Deer Hunter love?
It was a complete borefest for me the first time I watched it, and the second time was even worse.
I think it's one of those films that you're meant
to like but nobody really does (the cinematic equivalent of Ulysses
). It's got some unquestionably brilliant moments if you can only get past that interminable f*cking wedding scene...
