题目：拯救大兵瑞恩 Saving Private Ryan
Well, actually1, the kind of films I like best are probably2 the older ones. For example3, one of my favourites is Saving Private Ryan. I think I like war movies and I particularly like that one, I suppose4 because5 the acting is excellent with Tom Hanks6 and a bunch of other people who are really really good. It’s a good story but I suppose the thing that is most impressive for me is that initial opening scene where the troops are actually landing in Normandy on the beaches. It’s very meaningful for me because my dad was in the Second World War and also because I visited those beaches in Normandy7. It’s easy for me, having been there8, to imagine what those guys were actually facing as they came off the landing craft and had to face a hail of bullets from the German machine gun posts. And I think the other reason I really like that film is because it represents America when America was great, when America was at its best. Around the time of the Second World War, I think America was a beacon (灯塔) for many countries. It seemed to be freer, and more powerful, more hopeful, more optimistic as well as gutsy9 (勇敢的). It seemed to offer more pleasure for human beings as a nation and to be less cluttered up by old traditions that weren’t very useful any more. So I think that’s one of the reasons I really like that film10 because it represents the best of the US whereas now I guess the US is a bit more in decline.
