I probably should watch it one day.  I've heard decent things about them.

Wait, what? Am I the only one who never got this reference? I mean, I remember that scene. I just never put the two together.

It's very subtle - It's not like Uncle Bob couldn't mean a million different things.  You'd need to know my affinity for the movie to ever make the connection.

On the other hand, maybe I just really, really liked Con Air...

Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.

I'm a huge Terminator fan (thus the nickname).

I'm also shocked at the revelation.

Midway - I hope BNM/nickmitch understands where i come from when i say this.. but some movies feel better in context with paired with a loosely related movie or concept.

The Need for Speed movie makes more sense when you consider it to be a Burnout movie instead. First Man makes more sense when paired with Hidden Figures, because you then get an idea of what we didn't see.

Watch Red Tails (or at least become familiar with the story) with Midway.

Because while this is a very hollywood take on what happened there, there was so many tropes portrayed that began to annoy me by the end: pilot with no fear of death but then suddenly loses his resolve, officer who nobody believes ends up being right, female characters literally sidelined only to hangout with other sidelined female characters worrying about their husbands and more subtle production-related ones like zero non-white people seen in the entire movie. Ignoring the Japanese cast (who were obviously required given the plot), i think i saw only one black person in the entire film - from the back of the head with no speaking lines. In 2019 things like that stand out really clearly.

Otherwise its a good movie to put on and not pay attention to.

I think I'm picking up what you're putting down.  That sounds pretty disappointing about Midway.  A lot of people (myself included) often think people of color weren't involved in certain historical events because representations of the history (TV, film) often exclude POC.  In 2019, that's pretty disappointing for a historical film.

I own the blu-ray of Red Tails, but never got around watching it.  I'm familiar with the story, however.

Joker was amazing.
