    Who else is getting sick and tired of the use of blue filters used to shoot war time scenes?

    It seems just about every new war film uses the blue filters to show the bleakness and harshness of war. I'm tired of the technique. Please go back to the unfiltered look, I'd like to see what color the uniforms really looked like back then.

    What recent war film besides BHD relied heavily on blue hues?
