The show Band of Brothers was produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks who, at the time, recently had success with a World War II film entitled Saving Private Ryan. Spielberg and Hanks used their expertise on war films to craft the exceptional television series Band of Brothers which originally aired on HBO in 2001. The show follows “Easy” Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, of the 101st Airborne Division, from the moment they begin their training to the moment their deployment ends. Throughout the show we see the men of “Easy” Company mature a thousand times over. The men experience love, loss, and death at rate that is inconceivable to someone that has never experienced the theatre of war.
It is about his service, at the young age of twenty, in the United States Marine Corps. He entered the war because he thought he could be a hero, due to the large amounts of propaganda, and the fact that he thought it was going to be a quick war. He was wrong. Philip Caputo illustrates the unique experience of war. The author shows what the soldiers go through physically
To be able to present the reality of war is a gift for Hollywood producers of the modern world. However, Steven Spielberg flawlessly captures war’s brutality in his film, Saving Private Ryan. This film captures World War II, D-Day, on Omaha Beach when three of the four Ryan brothers die battling the Germans. James is the only brother still alive and he was parachuted somewhere in Normandy. As a movie, the value of brotherhood is magnified, as a unit of eight men set out to find James so that their mother will still have him.
Migrations from different countries led The United States of America to become a melting pot, a pot which contains a variety of people and their cultures all around the globe. Therefore, their cultural development process in terms of art and politics affected the world and us itself. Throughout the history of The United States of American, there were many movies, singers and political events that represented their culture to the world. But in this very paper, in terms of representing the U.S. with its culture, I will point out the significances of the movie Saving Private Ryan, the singer Louis Daniel Armstrong, and political event The Emancipation Proclamation. American patriotism is Americans cultural attachment to the United States as their homeland.
Religion has been represented in American culture in various ways. The American movie industry, Hollywood, is a movie house that is globally well-known (Scott 2002). While Hollywood films have presented abundant actors and actresses, films involving Jesus Christ have been around since the birth of Hollywood. Approximately hundred films have been produced depicting the life of Jesus Christ who is considered as the Son of God and the saviour of humankind according to the Christian religion (Adele Reinhartz 2007). Although the different versions have concentrated on the story of Jesus Christ, their narrative do differ (Humphries-Brooks 2007).
Indeed, like many other sectors, films have gone through a series of evolution. Every person can relate to a particular film type, be it for educational or entertainment purpose. The types can be classified into various fields such as motivational, action films, contemporary films, comedy, drama and romantic films among others. Films have had, and still have a great impact on the society today. The social impact of films on the society is numerous if not innumerable.
Patriotism is also a great element because the audience is already rooting for somebody in the film. Patriotism also drives the the plot of the screenplay/film.

This film; however, did introduce the topic of Conscientious Objectors being enlisted in the military that I had never even considered and I do think that it is a vastly positive idea that would help to tap the potential in troops that may not be comfortable killing others. I do; however, believe that those in more commanding roles do desperately need to feel that it is their duty to sufficiently address these men in the same way they do those
Marketing has been an integral part of business and companies are in search for innovative ideas by considering the changing interests of the consumers, where product placement through movies has been identified as a better way to reach to the target audience to influence them.
