Is PH going to be included in Pacific Fighters?

Sorry if this has been covered but I'm new to these parts.

Thanks,

Well you COULD...toss in a skin on a P-40, add 25 special AI Zero's (with unlimited ammo and terrible aim) and you can do the same thing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

and some really funny AI people on the ground running up the stairs of a control tower with machine guns so Ben Afflict can lure the Zeroes past them... what an awesome film.

The actual events were so lame from an action point of view after all and we are soooo lucky to have had a director that realized these shortcommings so quickly, that we were saved from a dull production of what might have really happened that day. I hope Hollywood continues to make our human history more entertaining and banal or I might stop buying Coke and shaving cream and Chevy's and whatnot.

c'mon - lets bash this movie again, that last time was funny and it has been at least a week.

You could still immerse his head in the bathtub and hold it there until he stops thrashing.

Ben Affleck romance was bad, but heck even the action scenes were horrible.

Decommissioned post-war destroyers ...the heck?

They even took the trouble of being ahistorical and intentionally painted the Zero green instead of its greenish grey color.

Not to mention an Iowa-class battleship in the battleship row.

Thought Michael Bay was cool with The Rock, but man after that movie am reluctant to see anything by him again.

Are you on weed? The Rock was a joke! Especially at the end when they had F-18's painted with Air Force markings! Give me a f***ing break.

When you're done drowning ben in the bathtub, have a crack at alex baldwin for that abysmal portrayal of the Tokyo raid. Aside from the fact they used fighter pilots for in a few slots (a slap in the face to the RL bomber pilots out there), there was the great bit about them stripping the planes of weight---including guns that the planes in question didn;t actually have in those early marks, lol. yeesh. The only good thing in that movie was footage of real planes flying.

Yeah .. wasn't Baldwin supposed to be Jimmy Doolittle??... I laughed OUT LOUD in the theater again (for the 20th time) when I saw that. I mean - I never laugh too loud in a theater if I can help it, even if the film is a comedy, cause the NEXT line is usually funnier... But this pieca$hirt had me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Ya know, this got me thinking... and thats bad.

But why hasn't there been a good telling of the Jimmy Doolittle story. I mean starting with the Thompson Trophy and Schneider Cup races etc.. leading up to the Raid. I know - there is an old B/W film about the Raid itself, but HollyWeird is missing the boat and with C/G technology they could really tell this story right. You know, those planes were to have flown on to China and become the bomber force that Chennault had asked for. And Doolittle was so heartbroken as he feared that none of these crews had survived. What a great film biography it would make. ahhh any production out of Hollywood would suck and blow... They'd work in some cheezy love triangle and a cameo appearance by Sting or some shyte...nevermind.

The good film about Peal Harbor I like most is:
TORA!TORA!TORA! the attack on PEARL HARBOR

this film no C/G technology I can see a real P-40 and Zero how they fly in FM. I can see how Zero takeoff,landing,turning and I see 2xP-40 make DF with alot of Zero wow....

well , good that Affleck will not be included in PF http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

poor ben. sad to say tht his best work was from Dazed & Confused. Funny how a no-name looser can from that cast can score a prime gig and the Guy that played Randall "Pink" Floyd only did 1 other major film after that. & he's a much better actor than aflek. Lot funnier too.

I thought his Battle of Britain scene in PH where he gets shot down was really cool although I didn't like the crash landing in the channel too fake. The only thing wrecked on his spit was the plane's prop.

I hear that ol' Ben has a part in the new BoB flick with tiny Tom Cruise... Yeah - apparently Afflict is cast as a Luftwaffle ace that speaks broken english and taunts the American pilot over the R/T... kinda like Robert Connors nemesis did in 'the Blacksheep Squadron' TV series.. "is that YOU, Boyington?...you should learn to fry so I don't feel so bad shooting you down hahaha"

Wait so Pearl Harbor wasn't realistic?? Damn and I thought Ben was such a good actor http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif Anyway speaking of Affleck I have some tv show from the '80's recorded on tape and it has some comercials on it. Including one of young Ben doing a commercial for Burger King. I have to admit that is my favorite with him in it.
