    Must watch for me, as I love WWII movies. I just hope they don't ruin it with PC nonsense. This was a war for survival, and I hope they treat it with the seriousness commensurate with the desperate nature of the war effort.

    The trailer is laughable and reminded me of Pearl Harbor and Red Tails but no surprise coming from Roland Emmerich. CGI can be a useful tool when used with some restraint but in the hands of someone like Emmerich the scenes look like a video game. At the other end of the spectrum, Christopher Nolan should have used CGI to put more men on the beach in Dunkirk instead of using cardboard cutouts for the men in the distance. It looked like there were a 1000 men on the beach instead of 400,000 in the real event. He could of also used CGI for ships and boats in the distance as the flotilla of rescue boats looked woefully small.

    Yeah, I have the Blu-ray and actually watch it about once per year. I just hope they don't PC up this new one and ruin it.

    You keep saying this, but I don't know what you mean by it. What exactly are you worried about? What manifestation of political correctness do you expect to appear?

    Battle of Midway June 4-6, 1942. We lost the USS YORKTOWN CV-5 but we inflicted catastrophic damage. We destroyed 4 of the 6 Carrierz that bombed Pearl Harbor
    The Hiryū, Soryu, Kaga and Akagi they never recovered.

    For those who enjoy Midway and Tora, Tora, Tora, might I suggest another take on the same theme......I Bombed Pearl Harbor. I don't know if a BD is available but my 35mm Technicolor print is really stunning.
