I hope we one day get to see a film of the Battle of the Leyte Gulf shot in 65mm/IMAX and as much in camera and on location as possible. Á la Dunkirk :P Although narratively it can be a bit tougher. Since the Americans had a vast majority of ships and planes and it was basically the Japanese Empires last fight. Still, imagine it as Dunkirk but set in the Pacific. I'm just saying.

Let's just rename this thread to general discussion and be done with it, because I doubt anyone's looking at the title here.

It would definitely be narratively tougher.

What makes Dunkirk unique is that it is simultaneously a victory and a defeat for the good guys.

Leyte Gulf, on the other hand, is pretty clear cut: the good guys kick the bad guys' butt non-stop.

There's no interesting angle there, nothing that would make it stand out.

It would make sense to have a thread exclusively for posting reactions and nothing else. I remember we had something similar when Inception released.

No we didn't actually, it was just that people then were more willing to follow the rules or the point of the thread.

This is the search I use on the Twitter go bar

And to exclude the 'Harry' mania posts I just add

Give that a shot.
