Lancaster Skies

Love the Lanc but the pathos in this one looks a little over the top.  I'll still watch though....

i'd watch it but yeah, it does look very low budget as well as low brow, i.e. not too technical. They have to do better than a simple drama. The Lancaster deserves something more like memphis belle.
There is a rumour that Spielberg will do dam busters at some point as well.

Wasn't Peter Jackson involved in Dam Busters?

A PJ/Spielburg joint might be interesting!

You're probably right. Probably had my wires crossed.

Yeah,  Jackson was supposed to be doing a Dam Busters remake but that seems to have died.  Spielberg was doing a TV series on the 8th Air Force but that also seems to have died.  (But based on the footage, that might not be such a bad thing.  B-17 crews all with their O2 masks off and overly dramatic footage of Forts flipping over and ploughing into other Forts as they go down. etc)

This is on amazon prime now so I may rent it. No harm done for a few bob.
Being low budget their is even a good chance of their being no BS romance in it.

Saw this. Hands doen one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Basically no action and a lot of social pub scenes.

Marginally better than 1945.

That wasn't a compliment.

Not even good enough for background noise playing a board game.
