"Midway" & "The Battle of Midway"

This is the tale of Midway, shown from both the American and Japanese side!  This is a pretty cool flick and the depiction of both side is great!  Now this is obviously Hollywood-ized but it has some great actors in it and I think its a pretty cool war flick at the very least.  Give the trailer a go below and see what you think.

Well this is the modern version of the Hollywood-ized Midway flick and I didn't like it like I did the original.  I guess its basically a Hollywood war flick but those just don't seem as cool as the older ones were.  Anyway, give the trailer a once over and see what you think.

& for the real thing!

Now this is the wartime documentary filmed by John Ford himself!  Its all real footage and with that jingoistic zeal we all love! 

So there ya go folks, all sorts of Midway for ya to check out!

Below is History Buffs' take on the realism of the 2019 movie so give it a go and see what you think.
Part 1

Part 2


  1. I'm with you. Tora Tora Tora was an awesome movie and Pearl Harbor just wasn't. The original Midway was a great movie and borrowed heavily from Tora Tora Tora. It's a straight forward military movie for the the most part. The new Midway tried to tell too much. We get Pearl Harbor...Doolittle's Raid and Midway. That's cramming way too much stuff in to a single movie. I guess I'm old school...however if Quentin Tarantino wants to a remake of Where Eagles Dare...I'm down with that!!!
