    Anyone else have this on constant repeat as a kid? If you are new to the film what do you think? I personally love it, especially the air sequences. Then there's Robert Shaw, Caine, Olivier et al. I expect this is mind blowing via projector/home cinema amp etc. The dvd is awesome http://play.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=R2&title=150567

    There was a review of it not so long ago.

    Go the the review section & do a search there.

    I think it scored 4 or 5 ?
    That sounds awful but the scoring is compared against the good quality releases of today.

    I've got it & it's not that bad really for it's age.
    Saying that one would have hoped for better & i've seen other films as old, such as Zulu etc, with a much better PQ release.

    I normally prefer R1 but in this case R2 is a lot better imo & sold on the R1 version.

    It took ages to get a half decent release on DVD & can't ever see it coming up in Hi Def ?
    Probably be another BOB before then !

    Certainly recommend it & as the review said it's timeless.
    The filming of the battle itself will never be matched imo.
    Same goes for Tora Tora Tora.

    If it's ever re-made it will be a lot of cgi.There just isn't the hardware around.

    100% keeper for me.

    :rotfl: i got tora tora tora a while ago and right in the middle of the film was an intermission :rotfl:

    was part of a 3 dvd war pack from Play.com and they all had an intermission on them, couldn't believe they didn't take it out.

    I have owned this version of the DVD for 8 days...watched the film twice already :clap: also thought the extras were also very good

    without a doubt a timeless classic.
