    In Pearl Harbor (2001) there are lots of Special Effects mistakes that are very visible.
    Such as modern Aircraft Carriers with the Angle Deck used instead of the old Straight Deck Aircraft Carriers used during the period.
    Jet Catapaults visible on the Aircraft Carriers.
    Incorrect ships used for the Japanese Fleet.
    Anchor Mooring Chains visible on ships that are supposed to be at sea.
    And other Special Effects and or other mistakes that could be easily fixed with Digital Technology. And no I am not talking about trying to make the movie better, but simply fixing mistakes.
    Here is a couple of links to the movie mistakes for this and other films.

    On the nitpickers site, click on the Movies Link on the Left Side. Then By Title, then the Letter P and then Pearl Harbor for a list of mistakes.
    Again just wondering if anybody knows if the New Director's Cut will fix these Special Effects mistakes?

    are they special effects mistakes or just bad editing or historical mistakes?

    Why would you support this? This is the same as Spielberg going back and messing with his movies.

    David Prior has confirmed here that the DC will feature digital alterations of existing footage. So I guess it is a possibility. One think I hope they do fix is the fact that in several scenes you can clearly see that the USS Oklahoma is missing it's back half. It almost seems like that they ran out of FX money so the didn't finish the last few shots of the Okalahoma turning over.

    I'd be more happy if they fixed the plot rather than the special effects. Maybe they could take care of that Ben Affleck boarding a train to England scene. [​IMG]
    Anyway, I haven't heard about the new cut of Pearl Harbor. Is it just the same movie with deleted scenes added in, or are they actually making significant changes to the film?

    Well with the budgets of movies climbing ever higher, why didn't they just build the entire Pacific Fleet over? You know, seeings how the new damn ships are sooo historically inaccurate.[​IMG]
    Seriously, there were bigger issues with the movie than that.

    Does anyone know the running time differences between the previous release and the new Director's Cut?

    Maybe he took the train to London, Ontario.

    Hey, I think Archie Bunker once was worried about losing his job for shipping something to London, England instead of London, Ontario.
