    WW1 vs WW2.

    Mendes vs Spielberg

    Thomas Newman vs. John Williams

    I enjoyed both almost equally in all aspects. I might give the edge to SPR just for that first 20 minutes or so. That was a masterpiece Imo.

    Which of the two do you prefer. Just these two btw, no need to bring other war films into this.

    they are not even in the same ballpark, 1917 was alright and had wonderful imagery....but SPR is a better movie in every aspect

    1917 is a great film but there is nothing in that movie that can compare to the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan
    I still remember people walking out of the theater in stunned silence from that scene

    The airplane crash scene in 1917 was really horrible though and did a great job of making you angry while showing you the brutality of the situation they were in

    As the others have said already, and I agree, 1917 is amazing and extremely enjoyable. But SPR absolutely shits on it in every conceivable way.

    1917 is a great movie that never really warrants a rewatch. SPR is a movie I rewatch every single year since it came out

    Saving Private Ryan is the creme de la creme of war movies. It has it all. 1917 was a good movie no doubt but it is not taking the throne. I dont think it was gritty enough really to truly represent WW1 to its fullest. Really I thought the movie should have been longer so they could fit more in

    1917 is a great movie in terms of cinematography, the meticulous planning requires to make the movie look like 1 shot is an amazing feat but SPR is a much more complete film. For one thing, it has great characters which 1917 really lacked (we don't really learn much about the protagonists)

    I haven't seen it yet, but my dad said it's really tame compared to SPR.
