The Fortress movie looks ok but the CGI is very much like a game, rather than motion picture. I think with this and with Red Tails scenes I have seen there seems to be far too many B-17's packed closely together and far too much continuous flak too, when compared with actual combat footage.
Take a look at this, this is original wartime footage of the real Memphis Belle. A cameraman was sent up with the aircraft and the footage was made into a feature film. Beats the hell out of the movie, although I quite liked it since they used real Forts rather than cgi.

Yep, the other thing is that the fighters didn't mix too well with the flak - generally flak, then fighters, not together! You risk shooting down your own guys!

Trying to get a chance to see Red Tails at local cinema,but its not scrreening enough times in a day,and I don't have another day off for the next 9,hopefully it will still be showing. Can't say I'm excited about it,I hate cgi,and it looks like it's used to overkill. One could sit and rip it apart from a 'plane spotters' point of view,but I'll try not to do that too much,just enjoy as a bit of entertainment,if I can.
Sorry,for some reason thought I had my location on the left there. No,Dublin,Ireland,amazingly we actually got a film released at the same time as the UK. It's out at the moment,but not sure if I'm going to get to see it,screening times are pathetic.
