Red Tails (2012)

A movie of a different flavor for this place. I think it's about time these boys got a decent movie made about them. However, the TV movie with Lawrence Fishbourne was pretty good.



Also, finally we get to see a proper bomber stream and proper Me 109's (not those Spanish built ones). Yes, I'm a WWII aviation nerd as well.

I'm almost optimistic Lucas is getting back into his game with this movie. After the travesties that were the Star Wars prequels and some of the other ones he made after (Indiana Jones 4 anyways?), it's about time we get a decent movie from him. My fingers are crossed, especially in light of all the super hero movies and others with no inherent creativity involved coming soon.

Indy 4 was directed by Spielberg, just like the previous installments...

The Tuskegee Airmen. I remember watching the TV movie about them. This looks nice since Lucas is producing it.

Finally something not Star Wars from Lucas. This might be a good movie to watch. I was really surprised seeing Lucasfilm at the beginning.

Lucas is only the ex-producer, so it’s unclear just what his involvement is with the feature (Lucas did start a similar project more than 2 decades ago, but nothing ever came of it). Rather, this is a film by first time film director Anthony Hemingway (who has directed a plethora of great television episodes, including episodes of The Wire, True Blood, Battlestar Galatica ,Community and most recent Treme) and John Ridley (probably most famous for Undercover Brother and Three Kings).

That being said, the trailer looks a little cliché and hooky, so right now I'm only expecting a popcorn drama at best. Still, the sfx for the flight scenes look stunning, and if this gets to IMAX I will undoubtedly watch the film if only for the flight sequences.

Even if Lucas is just producer, I think it's the first work he'll have done on something other than Star Wars for a movie since 1994.

The planes all look terribly cgi-ish. I've seen better in recent pc games.
I hope they will polish that a bit more until release.

After looking closer at the planes I see that some of the Luftwaffe markings are wrong. I hope they fix the markings as well by the time of realease, but I doubt it. I'm a little surprised that a company like ILM would miss these details. Then again this would be stuff that only a plane nerd like me would catch.

Ah well, I'm trying my best not to nit-pick this movie apart and enjoy it when it comes out.

I know, the screen that displays on the video, before you play it looks like a video game...

But anyway, I'm liking this change of pace of Lucasfilms. It looks promising to me. I personally haven't seen a movie on the Tuskegee Airmen, a story I thought was rather fascinating.

Plus, I like that this movie at least seems to be different than the Superhero Movie and comedy fads. Not that I always complain about the latter, but that seems to be all that's in theaters nowadays.

I went and checked the wiki on both the HBO TV movie "The Tuskegee Airmen" and "Red Tails" and lol when i learn that Cuba Gooding Jr. not only was in the Tuskegee movie but Red Tails as well. Except, he plays as two different characters in these movies.
