      So.... he is a 60 year old Captain O-6 who is still a line fighter jockey?

      Or did they freeze him like Capt America?

        Well, he did bang Peggy Benjamin and while it's unknown whether her Dad was an 0-7 or 0-10 at the time, you can bet your azz that torpedoed his career from the start.

        And that's not even mentioning the history of high-speed passes while superior ranks are drinking coffee...

          I saw the preview of the theaters. It looks bad ass. Directed by James Cameron.

          I was hoping for snappier / wittier Eastwood style retorts from Cap’n Mav back at Ed Harris. Didn’t see it in the trailer but can’t wait for the movie.

          I also expect this to be a very woke sequel with several Captain Marvel chicas.
          Hopefully they’ll be minority lesbians.

              Yes.

              That's how excited I am about it.

                I wonder how Ev is doing. Hope he didn't run out of lotion or Tom Cruise posters.

                    I'd love to see a good WWII movie, but I have a feeling Midway is going to look like another video game with a ridiculous story line aka Pearl Harbor: The Return of Rafe.

                      Much better director though... I'm all in on the CGI alone, looks amazing.

                      Original Midway is pretty good. Don't know how you make it better unless it's shot for shot with better practical effects. Hope they don't screw it up.

                        Yeah, it was a little weird, even when it came out I remember thinking wtf - especially the volleyball scene.
                        Don't know how the remake is going to do. It's a different time. Back then everybody wanted to be a fighter pilot and shoot ruskies.

                        I once met a former Navy F-14 pilot who had been active when the movie came out. He said they went from nobodies to rock stars overnight. Apparently they were particularly popular with the womenfolk....
