Gents,

My oldest son and I watched Tora! Tora! Tora! last night. What a superbly done move - a genuine effort at faithfully documenting history. It doesn't have the creative "touch" of something like Saving Private Ryan or Titanic, but it also doesn't suffer from the excesses sometimes entailed in story telling. But the movie is well paced, dramatic, and does a dadgum remarkable job of telling the story from both sides.

As I was watching it, I couldn't help but think about TMTSNBN. It really is a stinking pile of poo from an overheated jungle bat.

Sincerely,

Canoerebel

P.S. Outline for posts to follow:

A. Most players shall chime in and agree that TMTSNBN is a stinking pile of poo from an overheated jungle bat. Without exception, these are sensible and well-adjusted individuals who undoubtedly will become leaders of men and nations.

B. A few players shall chime in and say that TMTSHBN was good. Ninety-eight-point-seven percent of these miscreants will cite Kate Beckinsale as the primary reason for its quality.

C. The thread will then go off on tangents about other Pacific Theater movies and whether they are good or bad.

Kate Beckinsale is exceedingly attractive. What is needed is a Director's Cut with all the non-Beckinsale scenes cut out.

Alas...I can't even take Tora Tora Tora seriously because of the scene with Mr. Miyagi in it.

TMTSNBN is a stinking pile of poo from an overheated jungle bat. However, Kate Beckinsale was the primary reason for any residual quality that the movie did have.

I once saw a movie about some guys in the jungle during WWII. It was a good movie. Don't remember the title, but I remember thinking, 'geez, these guys must reek'. I mean, they were always sweating, covered in dirt, had poor latrine access and so forth. I wonder how the movie would have been with 'smell-o-rama'.

I think I read recently that there's a new kid's movie coming out with scratch-n-sniff discs that kids are supposed to scratch at the appropriate time during the movie. True 4-D immersive experience. I wonder how they make those scratch-n-sniff cards? Any chemists in the group? Are these powdered esters that they glue to the card? How does that work?

Wait...what were we talking about again?...

As usual, I look at it differently.

That supposed movie was a complete pile of steaming stuff (I'm stopping short of insulting poo with the comparison). And Kate Beckinsale looks good covered in - anything - but the less the better!

I, personally, think the film was well researched, had all the events masterfully and correctly ordered, had a poignant--believable--love story, brilliantly acted, and emotionally charged! IT ROCKS! Heck I may just go out, buy a copy for Christmas, and mail it to Dan as an early present. He'd LOVE it!

Remember when captain what's his name, on Saturday night in DC, was trying to get adequate attention called to part of the incoming message about Sunday's attack, and during one stop his wife went and bought him a sandwich to eat in the car while she drove him to his next stop? That's love!

Is there any red-blooded male who wouldn't look upon that picture with at least some admiration for the beauty our female counterparts are capable of?

OK, so finally admitting that oldtimers disease has really gotten ahold of me ... who is she? She looks very familiar, but I cannot put a name to the face... help.

Thank you, gents... I had been looking for who the picture was of since I disregarded it in another thread that shall be ignored.

I now need to see if I can find some of her movies!

Again, thank you.

A. TMTSNBN is a stinking pile of poo from an overheated jungle bat.
B. There is nothing - not even the delectable Ms Beckinsale - that stops TMTSNBN from being a stinking pile of poo from an overheated jungle bat.
C. I don't really know any other Pacific Theatre war films - never seen Midway - so can't comment. Are there any others? Apart from black and white films, which of course don't count - well except for Dambusters of course - but that's not the Pacific is it? Oh dear, I seem to be going off at a tangent. Now where's the lovely Ms Bardot?

In "Midway" I love the scenes from the Japanese bridge where they are shouting "ooh-tah!" down the voice tube. Great stuff.

Arg.  The definition of deflating.  That's more effective than taking a cold shower.
