I`ve seen that movie and great it is too. But it actually to me made me realise just how good FB is.
1.I mean the way the guy was going down in his plane but couldn`t get out cos he was injured as well as going too fast - happens in FB.
2. The Czech guy who got caught by surprise, flew into cloud just to have the 109 follow him and batter his aeilorons until he had to bail.
3. The difficulty of the new inexperienced pilots in downing those HE111s and getting battered more than not by the gunners.

Many similar things happened that happen in FB.

What I`d like is the chance to chat up the lady WRAFs like they could! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

An then after you bail out you just happen to find the ******** widow in England! How lucky is that?

Sam_the_greek is correct the Movie title is Dark Blue World. Think it was a limited release in the States and I found it at the video store in the International section. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0244479/ this link will take you to the Internet Movie Database on the film. Cinematography is outstanding for those who love IL2FB. And for those pilots who fly the Spit will enjoy seeing it in this movie. Story is one entertaining and will keep you watching.

Well considering the ReVi in the 109 was on the left in the film and the 109's are Buchons makes IL2 seem more realistic than the film.

Yea, that`s one thing I don`t understand. The 109s were not authentic, they didn`t look right.
Why didn`t they just use computer graphics over it to make them accurate (as with the other aircraft, like the bombers?).

That was the only bit that spoilt it for me.

Hollywood could learn a lot from this movie. Leave the computer games effects alone. This film looked real, Peal Harbour did not!

I agree..... I've only seen the trailer but they avoided the typical He-111's with Merlins and used computer generated ones with Jumo's, so why not get the whole thing right and have proper 109's?

Still, its not as bad as the first few minutes of the TV series fallen, which had computer generated Buchons in BoB colours attacking B-17G's, now that really made me gnash my teeth http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

Anyhow, it looks a fun film and the romance bit means I might be able to con wifey into watching it with me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - G√ľnther Rall

From all the recent efforts, I'd still have to say I'd prefer proper or touched-up aerial footage of a Buchon 109 to a CGI "authentic" one. CGI just looks **** compared to proper air-to-air camera work. Too shiny and clean, with ballsed up flight physics.

It's dirt cheap to produce CGI that will fool the majority un-aerially minded audience and hence that's an easy sell for the studios.

Not that there are many flyable Battle of Britain era aircraft around today - wasn't the majority of the Dark Blue World footage reclaimed stuff from earlier productions like "Battle of Britain"?

Cheers, Spinner

Yes, that's correct they used quite a bit of footage from the Battle of Britain film and spliced in some CGI.

Yes they did. The Extras on the CD showed many clever effects (more than i realised) to bring it all to life. But i`m not talking about putting in a COMPLETE computer reconstruction, but just adding and `erasing` the parts of the fake 109s that made it look odd. That way you keep all the flight characters cos it`s still following the actual aerodynamics of the real plane. Basically, just `touch-up` the Buchon.

It's the perfect film for watching with the wife, out of all the WW2 fims I've made her endure it's her favourite. The air combat scenes are fantastic, there are discrepancies here and there, but only the kind of thing that people on these boards would notice. Besides, I like the odd discrepancy here and there, I like to watch my wife's eyes roll as I scoff indignantly at the misplacement of a revi, an out of place nosebulge, etc, etc. (Pearl Harbour had her in friut machine mode).

I'd like to make a point of the cinematography in general in the film. The whole thing is just beautifully shot, as a full time artist things like composition and lighting of scenes are things I really pick up on. Dark Blue World is one of the most beautiful looking films I've ever seen (and not just 'cause of the Spitfires).

And if anyone's interested you can see my paintings here... http://www.garethmccorry.co.uk/

Fruit machine mode? Oh I get it! LOL.

Great pictures, leadbaloon, they look almost photorealistic! Is this oil on canvas? It must be. You even have exhibitions up! I`m gonna have to try and get such things going...

Thanks Seafire, they are all oil on canvas, I work off the computer screen from photo's that I take, which is where the photographic look comes from. I was going to mention taking up art full time to you in the thread about the website of your pictures, but somebody else had already said it. It's a really nice way to make a living, I don't make loads of money, but I get by and have recently had enough spare for rudder pedals and a graphics card; but that's where the problems begin... I've got all this new kit, the computer is turned on anyway for me to work off, I don't have a boss to answer to, FB is only a click away at all times. How am I meant to get any work done?
