Default New Midway Movie

I went to the theater Sunday to see the New Midway Movie in RPX.
I had not even heard about it until last week. It was not overly advertised for some reason.

Fitting for near Veterans Day.

To my surprise, Pearl Harbor, Doolittle's Raid in addition to Midway was covered.

The aerial Combat scenes seemed a little overdone but really made you feel like you would die any given second. Maybe that is the way it was.

But overall, it was a really good movie for me and I enjoyed it with my popcorn-chocolate-coke

To all my fellow Veterans, Thank You for Your Service and Sacrifices.

I also saw this movie yesterday and thought it was a little over the top in some areas, but overall it was a good movie worth seeing.

It's a shame they almost always go for this kind of over the top action these days. It's just desensitizing.
I loved the aerial sequences in Dunkirk for their realness and simplicity.
But even with CGI you could make something look more realistic and grounded.

I am so glad hat for Top Gun Maverick, they have opted to go for all real footage.

In their defense, that's a little harder to do with warbirds =)

How does it compare to Midway as far as telling the story of June 4th?

Are we allowed to talk about the movie here?

If you do it with just 2 Spits and one 109, it might look great and real for us enthusiasts, but you get bashed by the masses. Oh my.
