Mel Gibson's new film about Okinawa is set to come out this year. Are you excited, /k/?

I hope it's as historically accurate as Braveheart and The Patriot.

It's completely understandable and expected. All of the men left who actually fought and lived through WWII are in their '90s now and Hollywood can start spinning history now unopposed. Our great grandchildren will grow up knowing that WWII was about spreading American imperialism and that we tortured innocent civilians and used overwhelming force to crush civilian populations.

The Pacific was brilliant. Hanks and Spielberg know how to make good, realistic, and historically-accurate war movies. Band of Brothers is god-tier (also Spielberg).

less-known movie? Letters from Iwo Jima. Made by Clint Eastwood. Told from the Japanese perspective, with japanese actors, spoken in japanese. Beautiful movie, historically accurate.

Economics in relation to slavery.

>>28704034
Contemporary politics are shit and this is proof. Our "liberals" are pro-government and our "conservatives" are faux-libertarians who defend economic liberty and a plantation/slave economy in the same breath.

I know libertarians love using the American Civil War as a safe conflict where they can practice their disgusting form of historical revisionism, but I'm fucking sick and tired of it.

Clint Eastwood already did this. Mel could have made the viking movie instead which he has talked about for a long time.
Since he made Apocalypto and used actors that didn't speak english, it looked historically accurate etc. I had hoped for a viking movie with the same authenticity.

I mean both sides kinda fucked up. South tried pulling shady shit like 3/5 compromise. South didn't like the north constantly getting in its business. North didn't want the south trouncing around like they controlled the country so they wanted more sanctions. Slavery was just a means to an end, love Lincoln but ep was just a means to an end. It attacked the south where it mattered most, its economy. He realized that after 2 years of war, which is why 1861 the war starts, 1863 ep, which BTW slavery was only abolished in southern states, Lincoln still needed the border states to be neutral. Which is why in 1865 slavery was abolished everywhere. Slavery was just a means to an end, but then people started saying great emancipator, he went with it

The next HBO WW2 miniseries will be out in 2017/18. About the The Mighty Eighth and based on 'Masters of the Air''.

Scripts are done as of last month, start filming soon. Budget bigger than Band of Brothers and The Pacific. I have high hopes.

Do you really think a grunt private on either side cared a rats ass about niggers? They only ones who did in the south were the few slave owners with big enough plantations to benefit from slave labor and the only ones in the north were some Quaker ministers. The North had replaced niggers with machines and the south wasn't far behind.
>>
>>28710445

That only became relevant when they finally started bombing the Romanian oil synth plants in the last months of the war. The entire campaign was either devoted to dehousing Germans (Which like London, only made the German will to resist highten) or bomb the factories (which were increasingly being replaced with underground sites.)

Speer himself said that if they concentrated their air power on the synth plants for three to six weeks, the war would be over. Everything leading up to those last months was a farce.

But we're talking about the Eighth. It essentially took FDR's personal persuasion before US bomber command would entertain the thought of bombing anything other than military targets. They were paranoid about their post-war reputation as the air force becoming its own branch depended on it.

Yeah, they killed a ton of civilians and even allied POWs, it was inevitable, but I'd argue that intent matters.
