      Gladiator was one of my favorite films, and Saving Private Ryan was another. I simply love heros, courage and bravery. It is so delicious with potatoe chips, chocolate, ice cream or among various other treats as you sit in a film theater with your hand near a place where it never belongs according to a wife, girl friend , or a first date. God Bless You and I love your good taste in the great things on Earth.
