Re: Midway trailer -- 2019

Thanks for that Ed,

Here's a trailer for "The Cold Blue" (a documentary):

P.S. I thought the flying sequences in the first episode of the TV "Catch-22" looked good. For once with CGI the planes weren't rigidly fixed in formation, their positions varied constantly as happens when humans are at the controls.

You're welcome Nick. And thanks for The Code Blue link. I had no interest in the Catch-22 story but was amazed by the attention to detail in the two trailers I saw.

Ed
If you haven’t read Catch-22, I’d really recommend it.

Re: Midway trailer -- 2019

I've seen The Cold Blue and the new Catch-22 serie. I highly advise the former but have confused feelings on the second. I have not read the book, neither seen the old movie, but it feels quite weird but I have some good laugh.

For the Midway movie, we can feel from this trailer the frustration of Roland Emmerich to not have been able to make his own Pearl Harbor movie. I'm wondering how much of the movie is dedicated to the Battle of Midway and how much to other events of the first six month of the Pacific War.

"I have not read the book, … but it feels quite weird …"

So does the book but it all makes perfect sense if you stick with it — and it is really funy along the way.

Re: Midway trailer -- 2019

Agree 100% with Nick about the book Catch-22. First read it about 40 years ago and I re-read it every 5 years or so because it's that good, and I'm definitely not one to read fiction.

Cold Blue looks really good/interesting.

Midway gets a hard pass from me. The trailers made my head explode...

I have watched cold blue at HBO, it is a great documentary, about Midway movie, I have to admit I have serious doubt about the quality of this movie, I cannot imagine the director of movie like "Independence day" and "White House Down" could make a great movie about Midway, I hope I was wrong, but I predict this would be a typical Hollywood war movie about cheap love stories plus some eye-catching special effects. Don't get me wrong, Hollywood used to making great war movie such as General Patton, memphis belle, saving private Ryan, but these days were gone
