After a few episodes I lost interest as it is starting to drag on. The scenes in the U-boot are over the top. It lacks variation.

Yeah, it was pretty predictable what was going to happen after the first episode.
More or less a drama taking place in a sub/naval background more than anything.

I also don't believe many XO's were awarded a Knight's Cross. Not many besides the captain far as I know.

The fact that a remake exist, almost makes me hate the original.

What I'd pay to see are "snuff" films, where it's a hidden camera in Hollywood board meetings where they kill in various entertaining ways people who suggest remaking "X" movie.

Default Das Boot (2018)

Hello,

Have you seen the 2018 series "Das Boot"?

I think that for a recent series it is actually relatively accurate. Of course some sacrifices had to be made in order to please the modern viewer, but all in all I enjoyed watching it for the good effects and visualization of U-Boat life. What I also like is that compared to movies like the original "Das Boot" or "U-505" the crews are a little more accurate age-wise (on U-96 an a little older crew might make sense, but this series is set in '42).

German viewers can watch it via Sky (I don't know about other sources, sorry).

What is your opinion on the show, if you've seen it? Give it a go, it's not as cringeworthy as I expected.

Best,
Eikson

Default Anyone seen the new Das Boot Miniseries?

it's out now on Hulu with English subtitles. I've seen three quarters of the first episode and its riveting. The sub scenes are very realistic IMHO. Please do not post any spoilers. I just want to know what everyone's general feeling is about the show.

Yes i enjoyed it they had a subplot on land. But a series 2 is being made and i thought the ending was great.

I'm now at about the 4th episode, but while the acting is good, gets a tad absurd at times with reality...

I have seen it.

i am not impressed.
There some good Scenes in the Submarine, but that is all.
Most Part of the Story will be the Part on Land, for the Opposition of the France Rebels.

Not so really nice for a Series called "The Boat".
Also i do not like, how the Story itself is "made".
A lot at the Beginning, will you remember to the Movie "Das Boot",
it is nearly a "borrow" of much Things and Ideas, and also conversations (in the same Way). But later the Series goes down like a brithish Destroyer after 10 Torpedos. There is just 1 fascinating Scene left, i do not want to tell it everyone, who not know.

But for real: after the 3. Part, it goes longer and longer, at the 4. Part i begun to skip some Parts, than i rewind, watch it, and skip it again.

not really big Cinema. It is okay, but the Story @ Land can completly Cut in my Eyes. And the hardest Thing is: The story at Land is nearly complete a different Story to the Boat. Only thing that is "together" is the Point, that is a Brother Sister Thing, but this is all.


Best Greetings.
You miss not so much you think. I saw it 1 Time, do not need to see it again.
