First heard of it yesterday - about WW1. Anyone heard if it will be any good?

Not very realistic - Everyone knows the Mustang won teh war, not SPADS and Sopwiths.

As long as the pilots aren't always yelling, WhooHoo Yeah! and Come on! Alright Yeah! during the aerial scenes (as per PH) I should be able to remain in the theatre.

Seriously. It seems like every war movie I've ever seen is just reeking of British nationalism.

Especially that one where they had that Indian terrorist Ghandi killed. I can't believe they took credit even for that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Did you not look, or is this because the other thread isn't really about "Flyboys" anymore?

Ok, this thread is full of replys from kids, or ignorant adults. Everyone knows that flyboys is the sequel to Pearl Harbor!!

Boys brings your flight jackets, girls bring your tissues, both bring your imaginations.

You remember those annoying kids that played young Rafe and Danny in Pearl Harbour?

Yep....they're both in Flyboys cast http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

WTF did the person who did the casting thinking? They propably wanted Ben Affleck too but couldnt afford him http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif But at least with him it wouldve been a hillarious comedy.

Well... I remember when I first saw "All Quiet on the Western Front" in a summer cinema. The guy on my side just commented: "And all this was the fault of that bast*rd, Napoleon, wasn't it?"

Too bad they didn't play it for laughs---FLY BOYZ looks ghastly pretentious. It has race, sex, the big sunset lie, an exploding gigantic German phallus, and computer generated biplanes performing maneuvers which would have ripped the wings off a real WWI fighter. Ingredients guaranteed to make anybody over 15 want to charge into the next cinema even if it's a Meryl Streep film.

Will it be a good film or not? Well judging from the trailer it honestly looks like a pile of steaming dog poo...im sorry, thats what it looks like to me.

Looks like a pc animated cartoon from the get go. But hey, now the makers of the film know they can do it....if they can actually produce a intresting movie is a whole differant ballgame.

Wouldnt suprise me one bit if it turns out that the hero is actually Rafe`s father. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

To Biscuit Knight -
No smartass, I didn't see the umpteen page thread that came out before mine. If I had I wouldn't have started this one.

Heh heh, will be easy to see which people are playing according to FLY BOYZ, carguy_, they'll be the ones tearing the wings off even the durable SPAD XIII in KNIGHTS and howling the FM is "totally totally porked." I am amused to see the frenzied MTV-style action in FB and compare it to the beautifully done THE BLUE MAX which has the aircraft realistically buzzing at each other almost in slow motion with no wild, strut cracking loops, or crazed maneuvers. Compared to FB, it looks like an aerial ballet in slow time.

"Oh and the guy who made Flyboys also made the Patriot - another piece of anti British tripe." (stolen from another thread)

Hahahahahaha http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Imagine that! The Patriot (a film about American Independence for Americans) being anti British! Oooh, it's Lord Vader wearing a Redcoat . . . .

P.S. Sorry about the other films though. I didn't make 'em.
