I just realised its out in the states soon. It looks so.damn.awesome.
but is it really needed?
another WW2 action/drama just seems completely superflous
there isn't that much recent and good pacific theatre material.
Thin red line was pretty dull I thought. This looks like it could be incredible.
Really good WWII drama is pretty hard to find. Band of Brothers was so much better than anything else I've seen and with the same people involved with The Pacific, I'm extremely excited.
I found Thin Red Line hard work, I thought Flags of our Fathers was extremely disappointing (although Letters from Iwo Jima was far better).
band of brothers is overrated.
unless you fancy shelling out for a Sky Movies subscription because apparently showing it on Sky One just wouldn't make Murdoch enough money.
Wow, that's a niche audience they're going for there.
i actually swore i'd never do this, but I am going to have to. :(
People on the DVD Forum claim it's exclusive to the HD channel. Surely not?
Frankly I'd say just download it and then buy the Blu-Ray/DVDs. You're going to do that anyway, yeah?
exlcusive to HD? Fuck. that's mental.
There can't be a big enough HD-only audience to justify that can there?
and always talking about Sky Sports HD.
Last night during 24 a banner appeared on the bottom of the screen going "24: Even better in HD on channel 170" which... is funny because I'd imagine that even if you had HD that banner might've still appeared.
I DON'T HAVE A FULL HD TV SKY, THAT'S WHY I DON'T WANT TO PAY £10 A MONTH FOR IT :'(
But actually it's just on the normal one too? Cool.
...just to check i wasn't chatting shit
but no...it is pretty overrated.
but pretty good for...'hey...wasn't that a lost boy in hook?....hey...isn't wasn't that guy in spatz or grange hill or summit?.....is that guy fucking sam rockwell or not? how the fuck can you look and sound so much like sam rockwell and not be sam fucking rockwell you prick...'
apart from that. i'm not sure why it needed to exist when saving private ryan and the thin red line are in the world.
what DOES need to exist is the world at war boxset, which i will be gobbling up for the rest of the week.
chamberlain just signed summit that allowed hitler to take over chequolsovakkeia (sic).....i'll remeber this bit, i think this might be an important part of the story arc
rather than google it, i though...'hey...why not write something that is completely wrong and then write (sic)....wouldn't that be a delightful bit of whimsy.
