Last night CBC aired the movie "Pearl Harbour." The movie was about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour during WW II. Or was it?
I can't believe that Hollywood has taken such a solemn, and serious time in America's history, and turned it into a sick love triangle between the three main characters. I remember the concern when the movie first came out was that the Japanese may take offense. I can't understand why American's and most of all WW II vets didn't raise any mifs at this belittling of such an event?
Can we expect in 10 to 20 years a movie about 9/11 to include a love story injected to cater to all "demographs", fill in the slow parts between the action scenes, and bring in crowds?
I'm a little tired of cookie cutter movies, and politically correct movies, but now trying to take historical events and twist them again is beginning to drive me nuts.
And here in Canada we havn't escaped either. The CBC movie which aired some time ago about the history of the A.V. Roe Arrow (Canada's wonder plane) was to "male" oriented. So, to "correct" historical bias, they injected the role of a woman to make the historical accuracy more politically correct. That made everything better.....
I remember talking with a wonderful lady (a teacher at one of our schools) who thought the Communist government was horrible after watching the movie K911 The Widowmaker. For not sending radiation suits on board the boat, and sending seamen to die......that was her historical reference......wrong as it may be.
If anyone thinks Star Wars III will be amazing, and somehow make up for the two duds preceeding it, well......I think you'll be rather disapointed. There will be some good fight scenes (action) a touching moment or two (love story to fill in the slow parts) and a long awaited ending to the hype played on us three times now from when we remember the original star wars movies.......
Not me...I won't fall for it...I will be in line for the sequel to Cat Woman!
