‘Saving Private Ryan’
Do we have to start thinking of Tom Hanks as a relic? Movie stars have been usurped by superheroes at the box office, and apart from his stints in the “Toy Story”’s and as symbologist/crime-buster Robert Langdon, our modern Jimmy Stewart has lost some of his once-mighty stature. So while we nervously await how well his Clint Eastwood movie “Sully” does — and see if people will still fork out for dramas that aren’t on TV — how about holing up with one of the actor’s biggest glories? We honestly haven’t watched Steven Spielberg’s 1998 war grinder in ages, but the parts that are good (its opening Omaha Beach assault, that epic final battle) are for the ages. And you’ll get to grumble about the passing of an era, when the number two movie of the summer was a gruesome, tough-nosed, three-hour WWII movie, not just another toon about talking animals.
