    Looks like some good ones coming up! Hope Denzel is a better director than Spike Lee.

    I agree Rabid, Spike Lee's recent WW2 movie was a total failure.

    Here's some more WW2 films release dates TBA...

    Flying Tigers:

    http://www.themovieinsider.com/m5626/flying-tigers/

    Based on the volunteer fighter squadron formed to help the Chinese fight the Japanese before the U.S. entered World War II.


    The Long Green Shore:

    http://www.themovieinsider.com/m407/the-long-green-shore/

    Set in mid-1945 after V-E Day, but before the fall of Japan, this is the story of an Australian battalion sent to New Guinea to force the beleaguered Japanese to retreat - however the enemy troops will fight to the very end.

    Indianapolis:

    http://www.themovieinsider.com/m3856/indianapolis/

    During World War II, the U.S.S. Indianapolis is sunk by a Japanese sub following a secret mission to deliver materials for the atomic bomb that will be dropped on Hiroshima. The men float for five days in the Philippine Sea and only 317 of an estimated 900 who abandoned ship are pulled from the shark-infested waters.

    The Dirty Dozen:

    http://www.themovieinsider.com/m3413/the-dirty-dozen/

    A major enlists twelve condemned soldier-prisoners for a dangerous mission. A modern update on the 1967 actioner that starred Lee Marvin as a major who conscripts twelve condemned soldier-prisoners for a dangerous mission in WWII.

    Crap. They'd better do "Dirty Dozen" justice!!! The original is a classic, it doesn't need to be improved upon!!! "Indianapolis" and "Long Green Shore" look interesting.

    I'm not sure i'd be able to handle watching Indianapolis.

    Seen the docu several times.

    After she sinks the movie would basicly be like watching almost 600 men been eaten alive by sharks over a 5 day period while the incompetents within the Navy had no clue about what happened to her or where she even was.

    A terrible terrible tragedy was the Indianapolis.

    Brad Pitt's film seems interesting...though I'm still waiting for the Pacific.

    Thanks for the links.

    Brad Pitts movie will have to be pretty good for me to go spend my money on it.

    I am really lloking forward to the Flying Tiger movie, especially since it will be a Chinese production.

    I am out of luck when it comes to watching "The Pacific."
    No HBO. :(
    I'll have to wait to get it on DVD.
