    by aversiontherapy2

    The cast of Band of Brothers were amazing, down to a man, they just fitted (with perhaps the exception of Hanks Jnr and Schwimmer but that was kinda the idea). Let's hope that kind of lightning strikes twice.

    These are great epic stories...

    by pax256

    But Im still waiting for someone in Hollywood with the balls to tell us all about the political shenanigans that went on before and during WW2 that made it not only likely and easier to happen in the first place but also a less romanticized history. Some stuff I can barely swallow still just thinking about it. Too much betrayal went on... Ive only seen a couple docus with that courage. Check out the recent BBC docu on Dunkerk. Mind boggling that we knew so little about that story for so long. WW2 was an epic event but there are myths about it that must be broken. Its not the ludicrous absurd war that WW1 was but damn close in many ways.

    Band of Brothers = overrated

    by HagCeli

    Sure, it was impressive. Big budget. Great cast, imagery, music. But it totally left me cold on a character level. I didn't care much for the characters. And I don't remember the name of any of the protagonists. They were neither interesting nor sympathetic and I found it hard to invest in them emotionally. Saving Private Ryan had the same problem to some extent. Storytelling and characterizatiom were very vague, at least to vague for me to like the whole thing.

    "Who gets tired of WWII entertainment. Get a dick."

    by Continentalop

    Sorry MacReady452, but I don't think people died in WWII for our "entertainment", especially in a movie based on historical events. <P> If you think war is such a video game, maybe you should enlist if you haven't already. I am sure you could ask Xiphos_2 for the name of a good Marine recruiter.

  • Sept. 14, 2009, 5:21 a.m. CST

    DocPazuzu, I also liked Band of Brothers

    by Continentalop

    But I will say these two trailers left me feeling cold. They were way to bombastic and melodramatic and dripped with "importance." I am hoping this series is more like Band of Brothers, showing the low-key bravery and simple fact they thought they were doing there job, and not some stupid heroic "war porn" movie that the Beard sometimes makes. <p> The WWII leathernecks, Soldiers and sailors deserve to be saluted, and the best salute I can think of is a story that tries to stick to the truth of what it was like to be fighting against the Japanese army (not that I have any fucking clue what was like).

    by Sal_Bando

    I liked the Battle of the Bulge part-but I kept thinking as I watched it-okay this is shot Inside, those trees are Fake, etc. That and the fact I kept seeing one of the New Kids on the Block in it just took me outta the action. <p> There wasn't anything WRONG w/ it, mind---but it had a been there/done that air to it for me. <p> Yes I had uncles who did that basic run from Normandy to Germany, so don't start-I do fully acknowledge the content being important. <p> I did like the arkansas guy who went on to be a bigtime construction type--reminded me of Bulldozer from those old Sgt Rock comics. Sad I know. <p> A series like this about Korea would be worthy.

    by The Dark Shite

    I've never once heard anyone use the term "looses". <p> Maybe I'm dumb, (as an English Teacher I hope not), but I've never heard that. There is a term "to let loose" but not "to loose". <p> There certainly isn't a verb "To loose", unless it's archaic. There's a verb "To loosen" but not "to loose".<p> Either way, even if it existed, it still wouldn't apply in the context of releasing a trailer.

    Why WW2 is overdone...

    by BizarroJerry

    It's overdone because it's arguably the most important, traumatic event in human history so far.<p>I'm with some folks here that I would still like to see some movie about the war with varied, unexpected perspectives and characters. But it's okay to do these things, too. Also, while the war in europe has been the most focused on, the pacific war tends to not show up much.

  • Sept. 14, 2009, 7:59 a.m. CST

    That's what I said MB..

    by The Dark Shite

    Your dictionary definition says exactly what I said.. <p> In the definition it says "verb (used with object)" , which means there is such a thing as "To let loose" but not "To loose". <p> There is certainly no such word as "Looses". It simply doesn't exist.

    Devil Dogs

    by Tapeworm2042

    As a Marine veteran I'm happy to see the level of quality of Band of Brothers focused on the the Marines in the pacific. I really don't think WWII can be overdone. As one of the worlds most important events every individual experience is a story worthy of telling. Not just from the eyes of those who fought, but those at home waiting, in bunkers starving, and those doing their part in whatever capacity. What I have seen of the trailer I like brief as it is. I like that they are including the emotional and mental cost of war. It's not something often depicted in WWII films due to the time and and sense of pride of that generation. We tend to romanticize WWII, and mid century Hollywood has helped that along, but war is horrific no matter what the title or time. For those that don't get it, please talk (listen) to a WWII vet or a vet of any war.

    A rather generic trailer

    by jim

    Even using that percussion (?) over quick cut scenes (around 0:34) that is used in just about every other trailer going back to X-3. I'm still really looking forward to this series but that's based on how great Band of Brothers was and not on this show's marketing.

    Trailer 2's scored with John Debney's Passion Of The Christ.

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Just to confirm what "syn_flood" already pointed out. Love that score, have listened to it alot. <p> But what's the music from the first trailer? Is it original music from the series, custom trailer music, or derived from somrthing else? <p> It's sounds a bit like Zimmer's Thin Red Line score, which makes me wonder if it may be music for the acually series seeing as Zimmer and Geoff Zanelli are doing it.

  • Sept. 14, 2009, 11:01 a.m. CST

    Looks like another MASTERPIECE!

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    Just as Band Of Brother's surley were. From The Earth To The Moon was also extremely good. I didn't find John Adams to be on the same level of greatness, but it was still quite good. <p> When Hanks puts together a mini-series, I'm all the way in from the word go. He's earned that kind of trust.

    Agreed on WWI

    by _Maltheus_

    Anyone who defends the overuse of WWII themes needs to explain to me why we never see anything on WWI. That was the first war in history on that scale so it was even more shocking to people. And all the machinations that led up to it were so much more fascinating. Just because Empire Strikes Back was arguably a better movie than Star Wars, it doesn't mean you ignore the movie that set it all in motion. And WWII was definitely a sequel to WWI. I usually avoid WWII movies like the plague, but BOB was the best in the genre, so I may give this a try.

    by Sgt.Steiner

    It's called "Nazis", you know, evil as fuck, and a threat to the entire world. WW2, in spite of all its horrors, showed a generation of young men laying it on the line to save the free world from pure, concentrated evil. Stalin was a butcher, but concentration camps and near-successful plans for world domination bring shit up to the next level. Granted, the "Greatest Generation" would also managed to give us institutionalized racism, the Cold War, Vietnam, LBJ, Nixon, and all that "Silent Majority" bullshit. But, let's give credit where credit's due. When it came to Hitler and Tojo, our boys stepped up to the plate. And, I think "Flags of Our Fathers" was, in a way, a more daring and thought-provoking film that challenged conventional notions of heroism. And TakingScorpiosCalls, three words: "Cross of Iron".

    <p>In fact, if you aren't goose stepping or wearing a Charlie Chaplin mustache, you can pretty much get away with anything these days because people no longer have an understanding of what evil is anymore. Especially since we've stepped into that "world domination" role.</p> <p>But it doesn't matter how bad the nazi's were, they could have leveled half the world and they'd still be overdone. It happened over 60 years ago and we still get at least dozen movies and video games a year on it. It's a psychotic obsession in this country that we need to move past.</p>

    BOB was suprisingly very character orientated

    by DougMcKenzie

    The action compared to the total run time was some-what sparse, and was probably less than 10% of the total run time. It was very talky for a war movie. Most of the action set pieces were well talked up in advance, and then paid off with lengthy reflection and wound-licking afterwards. I only wonder (if by looking at the trailer), is if they abandoned the wide ensemble of BOB for a more focused on only a couple of characters. I don't want any artificial heroes, BOB showed that everybody who contributed was a hero.

    Sam Fuller, veteran of ww2, was once asked on how one would give an audience a realistic portrayal of war. His response was something along the lines of "Show an audience any war picture - send in five guys with machine guns - lock the doors - you'll have a taste of what war is like." <p> For what it's worth, a co-worker back from Iraq, who never saw "action" but was involved in the clean-up after some of the bombings, said its the stench that you can't portray. His opinion.

    As for more movies on ww2? Way bigger body count.

    by JackRabbitSlim

    And World War 1 is by no means the only "forgotten" war. How many movies have been made about the 3 million dead in the Congo civil war? The Iran/Iraq war? The Colombia/FARC war? Loads o dead bodies out there, folks.

    I'm sick of WW2...

    by TheWaqman

    where are all the WW1 movies? Oh wait, America wasn't a huge influence on that. Fuckin wankers. Paths of Glory is still one of the greatest war movies of all time.

    Forgotten wars...

    by BizarroJerry

    The Korean War has often been called the forgotten war, too. And let's be honest, it's really true aside from MASH.

    No WWI...

    by BizarroJerry

    also, WW2 remains fresh in people minds as the war of their fathers or grandfathers or great-grandfathers, even. WW1 is just too far removed for many.

    Can't Wait

    This is number one on my very short list of "must-see" shows in 2010. "Band of Brothers" was fantastic on so many levels, moving and amazingly well-shot with a once-in-a-generation cast of actors, so "The Pacific," returning many of BoB's writers and directors, gives me goosebumps.<p> I'm hoping for the best.

    Vietnam seems old hat by now

    by TakingScorpiosCalls

    WWII will overtake it. Vietnam war movies pretty much went out in a blaze of glory with the 1980s. But that grunt thing is boring. Heck even the best Vietnam movie Apocalypse Now was all about mythical and fantastical things, and it was just fine.

    I wonder when....

    by question83

    ....somebody in staes or UK will make a movie about less known facts of WW2 history, like relations of Great Britain, United States, Soviet Union and Poland. It should be called The country that get screwed. Guess what country im talking about.

    Stalin was a butcher, but he was your butcher. He started as an ally to Hitler, when Hitler decided to screw him over Churchill BEGGED him to join the allies. And soon he was the deciding ally. When 150 000 polish civilian pepole were slaughtered by germans durning Warsav Uprising Soviet forces stood by because Stalin wanted Poland for himself. And allies didn't do shit to help. But hell in 1943 Churchill and FDR basically decided that Stalin can have Poland for himself, but nobody besides thhem knew about this because FDR HAD A FUCKING ELLECTION IN 1944 AND WANTED POLISH MINORITY IN STATES TO VOTE FOR HIM. Polish prime minister found out about this in 1945 from mr. Molotov and mr. Churchill themselves. And, excuse me you didn't exactly "step the shit up" when it comes to concentration camps. Polish innteligence for months in 1943 was sending raports to british MI6, brits had to acknowledge that. And when they did, they didn't do shit. Americans also knew, and they didn't do shit. They could bomb the transport lines. I mean Berlin was bombarded wasn't it ? And when it comes to Stalin. Funny thing THERE WERE CAMPS in Soviet Union. Differences beetwen Concentration Camps an Gulags were this. Gulags killed more pepole, and were doing this years before and after the war. From 1918 to 1956 60 million pepole died in gulags, and 10 to 30 million durning transport. Learn your fucking history.
