    Yes that is very good and reasonably historically accurate. Can't fault his acting.

    Reminded me of another: 'L.A Takedown' or 'Heat'? Think I prefer the remake there as well.

    Tonight its my Cinema reserve 2 disc version of Tora, Tora, Tora. (1970) Martin Balsam, S Yamamura, Jason Robards, Tatsuya Mihashi, E.G. Marshall, Takahiro Tamura and James Whitmore. Directed by Richard Fleischer, less the Japanese sections.



    Tora! Tora! Tora! traces the build-up to Pearl Harbor by examining the events and developments on both sides. The film is even-handed, telling both sides' stories. By switching seamlessly, the Japanese and American versions are both very easy to feel. it is fairly well done i have to say and is still one of my fav war films, all the more so as no "real" stars were used.

    Picture quality is very good for a 70s film into dvd, and the steel box packaging beautiful.

    Man I've got so many to catch up on. I pretty much have a rule that I always watch anything new that is war, gangsters or sci fi so I'll deffo get round to it. Only saw 'Prometheus' a couple of months ago. That's how far behind I am. Recall you said that was a good one, you were right.

    I'll second that sentiment, Macca.


    Coming soon ~ 'German Concentration Camps Factual Survey', directed by Sidney Bernstein for British Ministry of Information 1945 on the orders of SHAEF.

    A restoration by the IWM shortly to be released by the British Fim Institute on BD & DVD.

    Not for the faint-hearted.

    Legion (Fox) Watching on catch up.

    Weird, surreal not an easy watch. Legion is about Legion (David Haller) estranged son of Charles Xavier (Professor X), and David is one of the most powerful and dangerous mutants in the universe the X Men exist in. Only problem is Legion's grasp of reality is seriously warped and we watch this series through his warped mind's view. Frankly this makes it hard for us to know what is reality and what is part of his delusional craziness.

    Interesting series so far.
    Regards Neil
