The Battle Over the Pacific

5 years, 2 months ago at May 3 10:01
Personally, I was never a big fan of early World War II movies with the exception of maybe The Longest Day & Tora! Tora! Tora!.
But Midway is a great example of taking an important military battle and depicting the grand scale of this real life historical event on film, despite the obvious perspective to the American side (which was usually the standard back then anyway).

Even though I had never heard of this movie before, since there was a nice cast, I thought I should check it out. Eventually, it was not bad at all. Indeed, it deals with one of the most important battles during the Pacific war, there was an impressive cast (Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, James Coburn, Glenn Ford, Hal Holbrook, Toshirô Mifune, Robert Mitchum, Cliff Robertson, Robert Wagner, Pat Mo... read more

Experience Japanese History Through Film (80 movies items)

"1942, World War II Era. In December of 1941, Imperial Japanese forces launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor thus bringing the Western Allies into the Pacific War. At this point, Japan had already been at war with China and briefly Russia since 1937. With a succession of victories against the Americans, British and Australian forces across the Pacific and South East Asia, the Japanese dominance of the seas seemed within grasp... until Midway. Midway was a decisive Japanese naval defeat that "

Film Diary - February 2013 (64 movies items)

" TV (RECORDED TO DVR) / New to me AKA Battle of Midway (so it said on my screen) Date watched: 28th February, 2013 Project: Classics? Why?: List of names in it. Director: Jack Smight Thoughts: It was ok, a bit dull. I think you would need to be interested in that moment in history to get the best of this film. Watch again?: I don't think so. "

“Even though I had never heard of this movie before, since there was a nice cast, I thought I should check it out. Eventually, it was not bad at all. Indeed, it deals with one of the most important battles during the Pacific war, there was an impressive cast (Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, James Coburn, Glenn Ford, Hal Holbrook, Toshirô Mifune, Robert Mitchum, Cliff Robertson, Robert Wagner, Pat Morita, Erik Estrada, Tom Selleck) and the directing was pretty decent even though I'm not sure that the choice to mix the movie with some real footage was such a great idea. Still, the whole thing was not really mind-blowing. Indeed, the whole battle was quite fascinating and rather realistic but, sometimes, also rather confusing and I'm not sure I really followed the whole thing. Furthermore, ther” read more
