    In highschool, my History Instructor showed us a tape of when Auschwitz was found by the soldiers, we saw the ovens, the chambers, we saw alot that isn't often shown elsewhere, that still sticks with me.

    That series will never cease to give me that hollow feeling in my stomach.

    Another movie I remember watching as a young teen was To end all wars if you asked me now I couldn't tell you what happened I just remember having that hollow feeling once again. My good freind amazon will be posting it shortly.

    Another one is the Incredible journey and not that homeward bound crap version either.

    The thing with "The Neverending Story" is that it ends, after three movies and a TV series, but the fact remains, it still ends... :confused:

    I have the same problem with "24", on DVD it doesn't last 24 hours (yes I know why :D ) and how come a big cliffhanger or revelation happens just as the clock is about to tick down to the start of the next hour..?

    2 used a lot more of the material from the book, but I didn't like it nearly as much. I don't think I've seen 3.

    By the way, the author's name is Michael Ende. :p

    The opening and closing scenes in 'Saving Private Ryan' are almost very moving, except that I get totally distracted by one of Private Ryan's family members (the blonde in the pale blue top) who has got the most fantastic pair of jugs.

    It's funny in a way, but it's not exactly a great bit of casting.

    Episode III and “Executive Order 66”. We all knew about the great Jedi purge as it was hinted at throughout the original trilogy but seeing it in action was harsh. Anakin’s attack on the Jedi Temple; Little baby Jedi coming out of hiding upon seeing Anakin only to realise he’s behind the attack; Ki Adi Mundi charging ahead, having the time of his life killing baddies only to have his soldiers turn on him; and of course Yoda realising too late what is going on…

    Sci-Fi opera at it’s best…

    As far as I know, there's only the one book. It's different.

    That was moving, but the two scenes that got to me the most were the reentry at the beginning, and the confrontation with Padme at the end.

    yes, but the whole "i love you, no i love you more" scene just killed it

    I have thus far managed to avoid Episode III after the carbunkle that was Episode I and II. :cry:

    honestly, IMHO, it's worth avoiding. there's some great scenes, but Lucas really shoudln't be allowed to write dialogue. he sucks at it.
