Especially rotten tomatoes. I think they've been caught for fudging scores to make certain production studios look good.The problem is you're letting a website dictate whether or not to watch a movie. I've found plenty of movies that I enjoyed that RT scored horribly
Ah sh*t! Someone from 3/5? Keep calm everyone and don’t make any sudden or he’ll turn into a crazed libo risk and burn the whole place downI've been lurking on this thread to see how it plays out for everyone, honestly I'm getting tired of looking every day. Must be rough for y'all!
I was going to watch it regardless but this review has me sold! Headed to the movies for sure!Midway is out in theaters
I went to see it last evening and it is pretty darn good. The writers and researchers put a lot of work into historical accuracy. There is, of course, a great deal of "Hollywood" in some of the flying stunts and some minor fouls in terms of historical timing (my wife was gripping my arm during a dive bomber attack and said "You better not fly like that!" I asked her, "Well, how will I land then?" It has all the right aviation players. Wildcat, Dauntless, Devastator, B-25, and even the B-26 makes appearances (but way too many from my recollection). The full range of Japanese aircraft are shown and the CGI isn't as bad as I thought it might be. The actors aren't too overblown and Woody actually does a decent job as Nimitz. The best part if you are into pop culture stuff...the movie ends exactly like the 1970's version with Yamamoto's quote about waking a sleeping giant.
In short, I recommend the movie. It is worth the cost of admission.
Edit: I'm also applying for NFOWhile I'm waiting, I guess I can drop my scores in here...

I'm all nervous now, since I also applied for the SWO board and haven't heard anything from my recruiter. I guess I can take consolation in the fact that I have better scores than many who were selected, so I can just hope that my recruiter just didn't receive the results today.
