Awesome!! This and Apocalypse Now probably drive my disdain of green screens and CGI. Lots have mentioned portions of AN's 'Charlie don't surf' scene, but I am enthralled when I see the 'real world' through the lens of a camera in new and startling ways, so the whole scene from the start of Ride of the Valkeries over the bullhorns just amazing.
As for the SPR Normandy scene, I can hardly contemplate, let alone watch, that opening scene, but I love it with all of my heart. My maternal grandfather was a buck private on that beach and worked his way all the way to Berlin. Get him liquored up and he's bust out stories on occasion, including the whole pretending to be dead as Germans inspected the killing fields. But my idiot cousin [lived next door to gramps] decided to break out some German right behind him when he was unsuspecting, and got a gut punch on reflex for his efforts [late '80s and gramps' reflexes were as sharp as '45].
