    Hi all,

    Finally recieved my copy of Pearl Harbor (VISTA Series) today, and WOW! What a DVD! I have never seen the film, and have heard all the bad reviews, but blimey is this not the best DVD package ever?! Over 12 hours of extras, and what fantastic packaging.
    I really think the VISTA Series are surpassing even the great Criterion! I just hope they release some more titles soon!

    I'm not that interested in packaging but would be interested in your thoughts about the film.

    In that case I trust you have read my opinions of the film that I posted on these forums about four weeks ago.

    If so I would be delighted to hear your opinions on my thoughts.

    Mc Brush,

    I did read your review and didn't much care for it to be truthful.

    The first few lines seemed to more more about your weird sexual preferences and I am not the slightest bit interested in what you do with your toes whilst watching the film.

    I started reading the rest of your so called review but was annoyed that you had inserted a major spoiler without drawing attention to it before hand as is the accepted behaviour on the forum.

    As you have now told everyone that the Japanese attack Pearl Harbour I don't suppose that many will want to watch the film any more.

    Like most Bruckheimer films the plot seems a bit far fetched. As if a small nation like Japan would ever consider attacking the mightiest superpower in the world.

    Thank you Ian

    It is nice to know somebody read it, even though you find my toe gymnastics upsetting. (it is very popular with the ladies you know;) )

    It seems that if you make comments about a film not many are interested. If you talk about a 15 disc special edition of Dirty Dancing, that comes wrapped in fish and chip paper, with a free nose hair trimmer, then people respond in high numbers.

    My girlfriend and I thought it was total rubbish, I have never seen such a cliched film - I mean the lead character played by Ben Affleck, he just had to be a maverick didn't he, buzzing the tower a la Top Gun.

    The bit where he engages the Japanese fighters playing 'chicken' with them, they're Kamikaze who are hardly cowards!

    It was the most purile childish movie I have ever seen. Hollywood at its worst.

    Tora Tora Tora was far better.

    its amazing all you guys bought into the marketing skam: include hours of extras and dress the dvds in a fancy box.... it just shows us how much the studios judged the film - a complete waste of plastic the film was printed on.

    It would have been a better film if it was half the time with all the mushy stuff cut out. I thought the action sequences were very good and are probably worth the price of a DVD purchase.
