|07.12.20||Internet|| Tom Hanks WW2 Naval battle stuff. Pretty good. I very much enjoyed Hanks as a naval captain and feel like he had a hell of a lot of fun both writing the script and getting into the cadence and language of being a ship captain. I do wish the CG wasn't sometimes a bit too fuzzy and the story didn't get quite so... standard toward the climax. But I guess that's where this coming from a novel and not an actual event comes in. I think there's just not going to be a better portrayal of WWII on film than Band of Brothers and maybe it's unfair to judge other properties against that. Certainly I was all in on watching the action unfold. I felt like everyone had done their research and could imagine that's how the boats were actually run. The few faces I recognized I liked. I guess that makes this a good movie.|
I should give The Pacific a re-watch.
