Longest Days beats that other movie hands down.


I watched it again yesterday from the DVD, and again I had forgotten that it is in black and white...

The only good stuff in PH are the 10 min of special effects around the attack. Longest Day is riveting for 3 hours. The only better thing than this movie (LD) is the Avalon Hill game of the same title.

John Wayne as Genghis Khan? Perhaps history's worst piece of casting unless you count Denise Richards as a Bond Girl that's supposed to be a rocket scientist or Ben Affleck in anything.

I'm glad that I wasn't the only one that thought that Denise Richards screamed 'stupid brunette' totally miscast as a brainiac. She wasn't much better in Starship Troopers.


Agreed. She had way too much clothing on in ST.


Of course, as eye candy.....(Hides from wife)

Even the "special effects" in PH are far to "Hollywoodized" to be considered good. It basically stinks on ice.

Actually the only shot worth of anything to me in PH was the sight of torpedoes running among floating sailors. That was impressive.

But well everything else... Just go get lost. How hard was it to make goddam CGI for the carriers just for them to look like something else than CVNs? I hate that.

No, it just stinks.
