Did they happen to list the pilots in the credits? A friend of mine flew in that one & The Final Countdown. Just wondering if he was listed.

I remember the first time I saw it many many years ago.I got hoppin mad, couldn't believe how many ways the US screwed up and let that happen. But then, it's only been in the last couple of years that I understood much about WWII anyway.

But I have to tell you. I've learned more from reading than I ever will from watching movies.

Not long ago I got pictures of the Val that was used in the Film. Making real low passes on a Libertyship. There posted in this Forum.

Yea much more educational than "Pearl Harbor."

Another great old war movie is "Raid on Entebbe." Go find info on it.

Very good movie but the worst dvd from my collection. Picture and quality point of view!

random note, a film buff friend of mine tells me that the person who directed the japanese parts of Tora Tora Tora also directed Battle Royale... actually instead of shooting my mouth off right now ill just imdb it to check.... yes it was!

all though i miss the effects of P.H i did like this movie better how ever midway is still my favorite.

07-13-2004, 01:27 PM
Yaep We seem to have the same need for Pacific action, hehe I rented Tora Tora Tora, last week, looking for Midway http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

But I like better Tora Tora Tora.

I love the Japaneese secuences.

His name is Tom Gregory. His "Zero" was based out of Friendswood,Tx at one time. He now flies the B-17 or B-25 for the Lonestar Flight Museum.

its made much better then BOB i must admit, the only think annoying is the white subtitles on the white japanes uniforms.


07-14-2004, 01:57 PM
