Yes, because Spielberg is usually known for bad movies...


He might be mixing him with Michael Bay (Pearl Harbour) :D

Holy fucking shit.

After the first battle sequence, I heard the entire theater exhale.

I finally got around to watching The Admiral: Roaring Currents on Netflix. It is the first Korean movie that I managed to watch all the way through without turning it off. For those that don't know, Korean (well, East Asian generally) cinema tends to be extremely melodramatic. So much so that it just comes off funny and/or silly most of the time. The Admiral managed to stay grounded well enough that I enjoyed it. The opening of the Battle of Myeongnyang was really well done, but it was like the Korean filmmakers couldn't help themselves, and it goes full melodrama after that. It is a shame, but the movie is worth watching for the opening of the battle alone.

I'm hoping they don't write the French out of the narrative on this one.

I've been interested in this for a while haven't seen any trailers though.
Wondering did you see the Dunkirk docudrama that was very good
