Band of Brothers Music Video- Wake Me Up When September Ends (Green Day)

I don’t like American actor Damian Lewis who was in those very dramatic tv shows such as “Homeland” and “Billions”. Especially when he’s a bad guy messing around Paul Giamatti. He was superb in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” as Steve McQueen. However, he was grand in this 2001 drama miniseries. Created by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg who did “Saving Private Ryan”, he was Major Richard D. Winters in “Band of Brothers”.

Joining him are Ron Livingston (from “Office Space”) as Captain Lewis Nixon, Colin Hanks as First Lieutenant Henry S. Jones, Tom Hardy as Private John Janovec, Dale Dye as Colonel Robert Sink, Michael Fassbender as Technical Sergeant Burton Christensen, Jimmy Fallon as Lt. George C. Rice, Corey Johnson as Major Louis Kent, James McAvoy as Pvt. James W. Miller, and Simon Pegg as First Sergeant William S. Evans.

So in this miniseries, before “The Pacific” came out, this talks about the Airborne division as they survive the Second World War while they’re in enemy territory. This won Emmy awards, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.

This song thanks to Green Day really suits this music video very well. And not just that. This song before this music video on YouTube was created, was dedicated to those who perished on September 11th, 2001. The day that the World Trade Center in NYC had been destroyed, no thanks to those two hijacked passenger planes that ran into them. All the way from the Middle East. Immediately, the USA declared war in the Middle East, mostly Afghanistan as many soldiers were deployed to avenge the death of the World Trade Center, including the ‘12 Strong’ as the very first.

Kids or young adults may find this song interesting, while summer ends as autumn begins; before they go back to school in early September after Labour Day.

However, in any music video, Green Day made an excellent choice to do this song, and dedicate to those who perished on that day in late 2001. Remember, war can be terrible. Like for what you see here, the First World War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, or any Civil War in whatever country.

Fortunately, the good news is, after a serious campaign which lasted nearly 20 years, the USA have decided to withdraw by the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack. They are evacuating people out of the Middle East, dozen by dozen, before things can go out of hand. And once that’s fully accomplished, then they can plan their final move to wipe out the Taliban. One path that the guerrillas have to choose. And that is the path of surrender. Nothing more, nothing else. In conclusion, when that’s also accomplished, war shall be no more. Big time.

Tune in next time on Saturday, September 11th, 2021 at 8:48 am for a 2006 movie review that depicts the 9/11 attack. Starring Nicholas Cage, and directed by Oliver Stone. And maybe a celebrity’s birthday who’s turning 50 years old on Wednesday, September 15th, 2021. Then movie reviews will resume in October of 2021.

In the meantime, wake me up when September ends. 😴😴😴😴
