    I see a lone female in the cast. If she’s got more than 2 minutes of screen time the movie is a bust.

    Why Hollywood thinks it needs to try to appeal to romantic women in the theater is beyond me, it just destroys the movie.

    Pearl Harbor
    Top Gun
    Major League
    Midway

    All would have been A+ movies without trying to make them chick flicks.

    Might be good if they had any people in it that could act.

    Woody Harrelson as Chester Nimitz, Mandy Moore, one of those jonas brothers, dennis quad.....I am not sure I am vibbing the casting. Most of their $100M budget seems to be going to casting.

    Every fucking movie today, is a bashing of men and elevating women into the role of superiority. Then when it is time for women to really stand up against a man, like Sandra Bullock, she cowered in fear when a stalker was outside her house. It is disingenuous how hollyweird tries to embolden women in roles that they could never succeed in real life. Sorry but "the Truth" hurts.

    Video: Sandra Bullock's Chilling 911 Call to Police

    Where was S.I.N.G. on the night Sandra was being stalked? In her closet...

    I can never figure it out. Millions of unknowns who are fantastic actors and they pick from a bucket of 15 names every time.

    Might as well go with Woody Allen. Today's uneducated morons don't even know who Chester Nimitz was. Not to mention the importance of the Battle of Midway. Ask anyone under the age of 25 how WW2 shaped the modern world and watch the light go out of their eyes. If you can get them to look away from their smart phone long enough to have a conversation.

    I am guessing all those under 25 year olds in the US Navy know who Chester was :04:

    I would argue Guadalcanal was far more important than Midway as for turning the momentum in the pacific, and I am not sure how they can do a historically somewhat accurate account of Midway without making it seem like we were just damn lucky (which we were) more than anything else.

    Very true. I was using too broad a brush. Apologies to my fellow vets of the Navy persuasion.

    That same is true of the original Midway movie and it was great.

    Nimitz was played by Henry Fonda.

    Woody Harrelson is no Henry Fonda.

    The remake will be a cartoon. All CGI.
