Got a chance to watch this. Outstanding film even all these years later. Very well done.

Default To dream a pipe dream

Just finished reading "The Bravest Man" about Dick O'Kane and reread the portion of John Keegan's book "Battle at Sea" about the epic battle between two convoys and about 40 U-boats crossing the Atlantic. So much rich historical material and Hollywood always has to butcher it. Never understand why they can't just stick to the real history which can be so interesting and engaging.

Oh well. May go see it or wait for Bluray. Hope it is not SJW'd to death.

Reading "Das Boot" for the first time too. Fascinating and scary stuff.

Thanks for all you guys do keeping the history alive.

I freaking hate it when Hollywood ruins movies. Midway (2019) is an example. There are too many freaking "Hollywood" explosions and the dialogue is so bad, maybe even corny.
I only really liked the historical accuracy it had in it. I think that 1917 was my favorite war movie of the year.

I pray that Greyhound isn't ruined by Hollywood.

Can't they just, I don't know, put it on netflix?

The World War II drama Greyhound — starring Tom Hanks, who himself is recovering from the coronavirus — is now undated (it has been moved several times, and was most recently set to open in early June).

Y’all gonna see it when it comes out anyway. Me too. Multiple times.
Despite all the hollywood drama and sales tricks, us hating the details and the wives hating our mumble every time we play it.

Too much of inhumanizing the boot crews in my sense, scaring the audience with the shadowy Ze Germans of the dark. Makes me feel like I am watching an alien movie, rather than a story based on actual events as the spoiler says. But lets not judge the book by the cover and wait a bit more.

I’d love to see a sensible picture about Kretschmer and Prien too, we all know that is not going to happen though. Cant correlate the nazis to modern Germany these days, too political, I believe. That including the true uboat’s emblems and other tiny movie details the interested public could pick up and use as political fuel later.
Tom wants to stay close to the true series of events, but can’t get too close too.

I would rather say, the plot line to be loosely based on convoy SC-107 story, the HMCS Restigouche and the U132. If you take a closer look at the emblems, despite their sizing and location, the first sub actually resembles the modified U132 with another one pretty close to U190.

Looking forward to the new graphics pack. Would be fun to have them in SH3

Apple TV Plus has bought worldwide rights from Sony Pictures to the Tom Hanks World War II drama “Greyhound” following a bidding war for the movie, which was previously set for a Father’s Day theatrical release.

Six-month-old Apple TV Plus announced the deal Tuesday. The streaming service did not disclose when it will release “Greyhound.”

This sort of competition between the streaming services is nothing but trouble for the customers. Well...

The war between streaming services is only making to the people to find other alternatives. Is time to take a look to my friend Jack Sparrow's movie library!
