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

One of my favorite WWI air movies is The Blue Max. For WWII I just watch Black Sheep Squadron reruns.
As far as a Pacific based Navy movie the time and distances between actual battles is just immense. Few ship to ship encounters happened as ours were mostly destroyed at Pearl and so it ends up being an air war over water. The excitement of watching the Navy gunships shell an island just doesnt have the strength of story behind it.
