Something by Spielberg, Hanks and HBO again. I hope they do Marines this time.

What made me laugh about this is at the bottom of the page where the little message board is, someone asked what pacific theatre is. When he was told, he replied, "I thought it as some kind of special movie theater, like IMAX or a ride at disney land". Is he serious???

Haha, was he American by any chance?

I was rather hoping there'd be a BoB style series that focused on a british unit.

There is that new German film about the fall of Berlin which looks good (even if they are all wearing uniforms with no insignia and using girls as "elite force" (aka SS) troops LOL)

To the Reichstaag, URRAH!

As for the chances of Speilberg et all ever making something which is not about yanks, haha tell me another funny one!

I expect there will be a token Brit in it, you know standing around in Bhurma looking scared and worried with a Dick Van Dyke style one liner about how pleased he is to see Americans because the British Army is so rubbish.

Yep,

Yanks right it's on BBC2 starting on the 18th feb. It's supposed to be a docu-drama based around real people who where there. Our RN group got involved with a bit of filming at Whitstable and Chatham dockyard, around HMS Cavalier. Mainly vehicles at the Dockyard.

Mike.

BoB was far superior to TP

I think this necro posting is a new forum record :)
