Re: Spielberg, Hanks and HBO's grudge against the Navy persists...

If you want a good sub miniseries just go watch the german 80s "Das Boot".. sub warfare how it really was and what Spielberg/Hanks have been doing with their WW2 miniseries.

I don't believe for a second that these guys snub the Navy intentionally.. maybe they haven't found the right story yet but it certainly isn't for lack of real world famous naval battles.. Leyte Gulf, Midway, Skagerrak etc. However if they re-filmed just these battles it would be nothing more that war action porn with ships.

What their miniseries did so well was the human element, the human stories and i don't think they've come across a filmable story yet.
