Retweeted by Jeff Gauvin@MissMMishmash Thanks. I usually discuss films and history on Sundays. My timeline is mostly politics and economics during the week :)@ClaudeJohnson Spot on. Details were so incredible, so we then have an ending that contradicts WW II Tank reality. Victim of own success@Steverocks35 You MoFos get off my M***** F****** tank!! :-)@Steverocks35 hahaha@JeffersonObama Where was Samuel Jackson?????
Retweeted by Jeff Gauvin@Kaffe_Takk Most of Tarantino's latest films are remakes of 70s Italian films ie: Inglorious Basterds & Django Unchained@jedikermit I read an interview in a Brit mag with Tarantino, and apparently he grew up a WW II film buff. His fav film is Where Eagles Dare@Steverocks35 It was a post 9-11 film and with lots of bravado. Pearl Harbor storyline reflects 2001 jingoistic era.@arpigreco Cheers. Enjoy watching them! :)@JeffersonObama I haven't seen any of these yet. Now I have a list. Thanks! Will give u my official critique afterward ;-)
Retweeted by Jeff Gauvin@Kaffe_Takk Awesome. The 1978 Italian version is also excellent.@ClaudeJohnson I like Brad Pitt and WW II precise details in film but Fury was a disappointment.Agreed. So awful. Especially terrible if you understand German because you'll get so many added levels of pure hokey-ness. @JeffersonObama!
Retweeted by Jeff Gauvin@Iamwhoismoses hahaha Old School@JeffersonObama what about the old school Godzilla movies? Ah ha ha
Retweeted by Jeff Gauvin@Steverocks35 @Gus_802 She was worth my price of admission@jedikermit I thought I would hate it and avoided it for way too long but Inglorious Basterds is a masterpiece. Simply a great storyline.@grey_zoe @KPhed @gregpinelo lol Yes@Steverocks35 Had lots of Jingoistic one liners but the action was fairly good in my opinion.@livecut It was a fun film. Tarantino took a bit of his film from 1978 original Italian film & modeled his Germans on Where Eagles Dare@lvdjgarcia Not sure exact figures but billions in US dollars.@Iamwhoismoses Worthy@Sesan72 Yes indeed@BostonIrishBlog I don't hate Pearl Harbor film. I rate it a 7 and flight scenes were well done.@laurelandhardly It was exciting scene but trying to open a hatch instead of firing PanzerFaust or anti-tank rounds was ridiculous@laurelandhardly Exactly and that 300 SS Panzer Grenadiers didn't knock out the tank with PanzerFaust.@arpigreco Band of Brothers beats all films but no fair, it has 10 episodes.@arpigreco Where Eagles Dare overall is the best WW II film, but for action, I rate Brest Fortress the best. Nothing beats Band of BrothersReally bad WW II films of late: Red Tails, Fortress, Fury & Company of Heroes. Good ones: Counterfeiters, Max Manus & Inglorious BasterdsMost 1970s WW II films used NATO or 1950s tanks but today's films use 1-2 real mock up models and use CGI to replicate units.For a tank movie, the film Fury is a 6. The film Cross of Iron, White Tiger, Patton, Liberation and Bridge Too Far are superior tank films.I wanted so bad for Fury to be a great WW II film, but sadly it was just average. Poor script and a poor ending. http://t.co/Aw8v4vCmMN@BostonIrishBlog I watched a 2013 WW II film called Fortress about B-17 unit in Sicily. It was horrible. Fake CGI, horrible acting.@JeffersonObama absolutely, there's a happy medium in there somewhere. Great pictorial lists either way.
Retweeted by Jeff Gauvin@BostonIrishBlog True. They've made a few WW II aviation films in last 3 years which are horrible. Bad CGI and bad scripts.@BostonIrishBlog I love CGI when they need to create a Panzer division worth of tanks or 1,000 B-17 raid. It looks fake on a smaller scaleI was so excited for Fury and I felt let down. It was great in Sherman and tank realism, but a poor story line and ridiculous finish.@BostonIrishBlog On the other hand, the last 3 WW II films I watched (all recent) had way too much computerized CGI. It looked so fake.@BostonIrishBlog In terms of computer blue screen and CGI?@JeffersonObama I saw Memphis Belle on tv last week. Oh boy. It has NOT aged well.
Retweeted by Jeff Gauvin@ksecus Indeed. Great acting and realistic logistics@gregpinelo @JeffersonObama would have liked Bay's Pearl Harbor much more with Transformers
