Patriotism I'm not bad mouthing patriotism in any way. It's just I noticed movies now have a segment where the audience is being reminded of what is being defended. Let's take for example Transformers: the beginning scene where the soldiers were in the helicopter. All those guys talking about baseball at Fenway, seeing their baby girl for the first time, etc. Not to mention the minority demographic being covered by Sucre from Prison Break. The movie I thought that got away with this type of character development was Saving Private Ryan.
