In case you don’t know and have been living under a rock for the last 12 years, Saving Private Ryan is an epic American war film set during the invasion of Normandy in World War II. It was directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Robert Rodat. The film stars Tom Hanks as Captain John H. Miller, with Tom Sizemore, Edward Burns, Barry Pepper, Vin Diesel, Giovanni Ribisi, Adam Goldberg, and Jeremy Davies rounding out the cast. In the critically acclaimed film, the squad searches for paratrooper Private James Francis Ryan, who is the last surviving brother of three fallen servicemen. Now the Blu-ray is here and it’s a necessity for any true movie fan to grab this ASAP. Blu-ray, people! The film’s notable 27-minute opening of the June 6, 1944 Omaha beachhead assault is more than enough reason to pick this up.

Diamond Eyes is the sixth studio album by the Deftones. Originally titled Eros, the album was almost unreleased due to bassist Chi Cheng entering a coma after a serious car accident in November 2008. Former Quicksand bass player Sergio Vega is featured on the album in substitution for Cheng. After dealing with the tragedy surrounding Chi Cheng's car accident, Deftones wanted to create an album with an overall positive and optimistic vibe. Describing the band's state while writing for the album, Chino Moreno stated, "Our inspiration and unity as a band is stronger than it has ever been before and we needed to channel that energy into our music." Get it, dudes!
