As far as I'm concerned, the gold standard for strategic bomber films is Twelve O'Clock High
. I'll probably see Red Tails
. I don't expect the gold standard to be threatened, but I do expect the dogfighting to remind me of Star Wars
Speaking of WWII bomber films and Lucas, I recommend that fans of Star Wars
(1977) check out The Dam Busters (1955)
. Dialog from the final battle is all but lifted verbatim for the Y-Wing trench run.
