Lucasfilm's "Red Tails" Trailer Now Online

http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1810095581/trailer

Really like the look of the combat, and I'm interested to see how a non-Star Wars and non-Indiana Jones film from Lucasfilm is received. It's a little odd seeing that logo on a film that isn't a part of those two franchises.

Looks cool. World War II aerial combat with modern effects and on the big screen? Yes, please.

In one way, it looks really great. In another, it's got that terrible digital/CGI sheen to it. Like the entire thing was shot on a green screen soundstage and not a single building ever existed.

Yeah, I'll pay nine dollars for that. Hopefully this signals the future of Lucasfilm.

Yeah, the VFX look pretty obvious, unfortunately. But that's just a minor issue.

Looks decent.

Though I don't know about Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard as take-charge military officers.

I find it interesting that Cuba Gooding's in this movie, since he was in the similarly-themed The Tuskegee Airmen with Laurence Fishburne.

Well, the story certainly certainly looks interesting. I don't really care that much about the effects if the script is good.

I'll check the reviews, I think, when it comes out. It could really good....or it could be Pearl Harbor.

And Terrance Howard played a similar role in "Harts War". He and another pilot got shot down and held in a German prison camp.

Both black pilots had to deal with racism in the POW camp.

Never saw that, is it any good?

You'd think a POW camp would be the one place where people would set aside their differences and realize they were all in it together, but apparently not.

Because there can't be two movies about the Tuskegee Airmen?

Well, it's pretty dull. The HBO film is already really good.

There can be. But based on the trailer, this one is almost an exact duplicate of it and, unlike The Tuskegee Airmen, this one does absolutely nothing to celebrate the actual people they're portraying.

So not only is it a rehash, it's an insulting rehash with special effects -- the only thing it apparently has to offer -- that you can spot a mile away. Again, unlike The Tuskegee Airmen.
