    Don't hold your Breath, I work tomorrow and then It Veterans day and I have things to do for that!!

    But I do plan on seeing it. I just came from the B17 site and more have chimed in "Excellent ".With one comment that I thought fit this threads decision" I have been disappointed by the pointy head LIB media critics who panned the movie. "

    I'll see it and chime in when I do.
    I'll also add I was about to see it Friday, BUT with the reviews given here I DIDN"T!!!!

    Just got back from the theater. Overall it wasn’t as bad as I expected. The wife liked it. It had its historical inaccuracies (highly expected) and its outrageous tough guy lines but it wasn’t too much of a love story. My biggest disappointment were the special effects. It didn’t look real. I’m pretty sure some video games nowadays have more realistic explosions and smoke etc. Over all IMO not bad

    Yep the CGI on the trailers looks really cheap.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    ......well, 5 pages, 46 posts and (eventually) 2 reviews....thank you you two.......

    Movies are massive financial investments....and a small group of the potential (picky) audience (us) want them to be accurate factual accounts....so that's about 5% of the possible audience sorted....Movie companies want the remaining 95%...so they'll spread their net a tad wider.....movie companies aren't charities after all. I guess we'd prefer it if this film was called "relationships, love, gung-ho-ness (?) and average CGI based loosely on the Battle of Midway"...but I suspect that ain't gonna happen :-)

    ...someone once said to me after the "Pearl Harbour" movie that, statistically, there MUST have been romances formed and interupted during the war...afterall, they happened on the Titanic! (mmmm, like Germany DID use the M47s...and probably in the Ardennes....but not in '44)

    Lets see.....

    Really? Wow, must have missed that plug (x10)
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
