Oh, Chickenboy. The graphics. The graphics. Oh, the humanity!
Tom Hanks is such a great actor. I think he produced or directed this. I wish he had insisted upon realism and hadn't settled for anything less. Oh, for something like D-Day in Saving Private Ryan or Dunkirk in Dunkirk.
In twenty years (if the world still exists), movie audiences will look back on this era of movie-making special effects with horror, as we who grew up in the '70s look back on leisure suits and bell bottoms.
Oh, the humanity.
Well I am not so sure about that myself - I mean, not about everything of course. Some good old movies out there, with proper footage. I give you that, not that many, but still
Look at this scene of the Enemy Below for instance. Isn't that the right stuff, right there
Notice btw how old grumpy escort Captain Tom Hanks has some strikingly similar traits to old grumpy escort Captain Mitchum. Besides what's contained in the source material, wouldn't be surprised he took some inspiration from this role too.
