[ mood | sleepy ]

I watched Saving Private Ryan tonight for the second time, and amazingly it didn't stun me as much as the first time watching it did.  Even so, I'm still feeling a bit shaken up from the scene where Mellish gets killed (poor Adam! :()

I first saw SPR back in April of this year in my 11th grade History class, and it stunned me.  Even now I still get chills thinking of some of the scenes.  The opening landing on Omaha Beach and the scene where Private Mellish (Adam Goldberg) gets stabbed were enough to give me nightmares for weeks afterwards.  Even so, I wanted to see it again, not for the blood and gore, but for the characters.  Wade was the one that I identified with the most; the kindly medic would do anything to save a soldier, even when he was already gone. The two parts that really have stuck with me are the scenes where Medic Wade and Private Mellish die, mainly because those are my favorite characters (yay for Giovanni Ribisi and Adam Goldberg!!).

Wade’s scene had me in tears; it was so touching how they were trying to save him. Even as he was going into shock and hallucinating, they kept up a steady flow of chatter to distract him as they put pressure on the wounds; it made me cry even more as I heard what Jackson was whispering to him as Wade was fading out of consciousness: “shhhhhh, you’ll be alright, Wade… shhhhhh…”.  It was beautifully tragic how Jackson comforted him in his last moments, whispering to him and rubbing his forehead.

And the other scene (Mellish’s death) was an absolute knockout.  He’s fighting this German SS soldier guy, and he gets overpowered and pinned to the floor.  As the soldier starts to kill him, Mellish pleads for his life, and do you know what that soldier does next? HE SOOTHES HIM AS HE STABS HIM TO DEATH! "Give in . . . you have no other choice ... make it easier for both of us...the war is over for you. Shhh. Rest now... shhhhhhhh, it's easier for you this way"  That one scene made me so sad and angry at Upham for being a coward and not helping Mellish that I wanted to break something. 

Everyone in my class thought Corporal Upham was a cowardly bastard who should have been shot when they got a chance, and I agreed with them.  But I could also identify with him.  He was relatively new to combat and inexperienced, scared of what he had to do.  If I were him I’d be scared too. 

This movie has shown me what war is really like; it’s hell on Earth.  The glossed over Hollywood fluff of war movies of the past is dead to me.  I’ve always been a very empathetic person, and I was warned before watching this that it would be very VERY gory, and if I needed to, I could step out and get a drink of water.  I didn’t leave.  I watched through clasped hands, biting my lip to keep from crying; I didn’t close my eyes to the horror. 

I would have to say that EVERY high school student in the United States should see this movie; if not all of it, they should at least watch the opening beach landing scene.  Teens these days are so desensitized to violence that they don’t know what real violence is.  This movie will change their minds.  I know it changed mine.

I am so glad this community is around! I've been lurking for a while and finally decided to join.

so... how long have I loved Adam Goldberg? uh... since about forever, I think =]

however, I was wondering, does anyone have a .GIF or a clip of the scene in Saving Private Ryan in which his character (Pvt. Mellish) is stabbed by the SS officer? now, I know most of you probably would rather not think about that scene (Adam? dead? not possible! I cried for an hour when I first saw that part =O). Although to me, it is a very surreal scene, In which an amazing actor turns something that happened often (the death of soldiers) into something comepletely heartwrenching to see.

anywho, yeah. if anyone has a clip of it or knows of a place where I can get it, please comment and I'll give you my email address =]

(I hope this is allowed, as it IS Adam related)

Does he follow the religion? [09 Dec 2005|05:35pm]

I know technically he isn't Jewish, but does he follow the religion in any way?

Has anyone seen the movie 'According to Spencer'? Well, probably since y'all love Adam Goldberg. If you haven't seen it, see it! Well, I saw it last night. It was flippin' hilarious! I was cracking up all alone. It takes a lot for me to laugh alone. I don't know what it is about Adam, he's just naturally funny. It's great. Anyways, I just wanted to share that with you guys.

P.S. Another reason why I like Adam so much is because he looks a lot like my boyfriend. It's crazy how alike they are.

Does anyone know when 'Head Cases' is on. I thought it was on Wednesdays at 9:00pm. But every time I go to watch it on Wednesday, something else is on. Did it get canceled or is it on a different night?

Adam Interview. [08 Sep 2005|03:25pm]

[ mood | giddy ]

From the New York Metro:

Adam Goldberg is the kind of actor you want more of but usually get
in small tastes—as a psycho roommate on Friends or a doomed grunt in
Saving Private Ryan. This season, you can indulge in a Goldberg feast
with Head Cases, an odd-couple drama in which he plays Shultz, a
jittery, rage-prone lawyer paired with Chris O'Donnell as his

Head Cases Pilot Review. [17 Jun 2005|09:33pm]

I'm sorry if this is off topic. Feel free to smack me up the back of the head if that is the case.

I've had the very, very good fortune of seeing the pilot of Head Cases. *geeks out*

And my, lemme tell you, it rocks. I certainly had my doubts there for a while, what with the three or four name changes it went through and Rachael Leigh Cook leaving the cast, things didn't exactly look promising.. Thank the lord my fears were unfounded.

Anyhow, i decided to give it a review. As my squeeing isn't exactly informative. ;)


‘OMG, You Guys, This Show’ aka What Worked.

Adam Goldberg. After a decade spent being the ‘hey, it’s that guy’ kind of actor, God willing he should finally become a recognisable face when Head Cases airs. Because he is just fantastic. It helps that he’s playing such a likable character, who thanks to his problems, is also rather lonely.

Greetings and Salutations!

I'm a very recently converted fan of Adam's, having seen him around plenty of times before (i can never see him without thinking of him as Kevin Wolchek on Will & Grace)

Anyway, i come bearing gifts...and some slight pluggage. *ducks flying objects*

It's really-- [02 Apr 2005|01:21am]

After sharing the top spot with Jude Law for a long time, Adam has recently taken the title as my favorite actor. Quite an honor, I'm sure. I thank Richard Linklater for using him excessively, or like twice.

Ok, now some photos.Collapse )

I haven't see this, it's written, directed, and starring Billy Crystal [as is America's Sweethearts]... so, you be the judge. Adam is one of many familiar names, his part probably isn't that big.

Hey all!
I love Adam Goldberg, have for a very long long time and all of my friends think I'm nuts because all but two have heard of him.

But anyway...I made these icons a while ago. They're nothing great just the same icon in slightly different colors and I figured I let all of you see them and if you really feel like it, you can use them but please comment and credit me...that's all I ask.

Mrs. Adam Goldberg *dreamy sigh* [07 Mar 2005|09:07am]

[ mood | lazy ]

Yes, I am fully aware that I am already marrying a slew of other men, but Adam Goldberg is DEFINITELY on that list. Now I am a proud member of his Live Journal fan club. I'm not exactely sure what to do now. I could make shirts, and walk around sharing Hebrew Hammer references with myself. Might be difficult in the "LAND O CATHOLOCISM" *insert mystical music here* (Meaning Seton Hall of course). Nevertheless I shall continue to worship the ground Mr. G shleps on along with my 49 other members.  Until next time, I'll leave you with this little gem of enjoyment!:



Note: that was supposed to be me at the award show. Unfortunately the night before I caught a severe case of *insert illness here* I called up my good friend Christi, and the trooper that she is,  she took my place..... WINK!

Note 2: I'm really not obsessive : |
