With Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk just around the corner, this month’s Movie of the Month could well be considered a companion piece to it, as this week we’re delving into Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan.

As the movie’s champion Rob led the discussion, and was joined by super fan and regular host Jay, relative newcomers to the film Jess and Damien, and absolute first-timer Kristen.

Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a game of Last Lamb Standing.
