This movie had a very limited release in theaters last year, is now
out in video & DVD.  A Czech production with subtitles, it tell the
story of two Czechoslovakian flyers who volunteer for the RAF after
their country was occupied in '39.  The bulk of the action takes place
during the BoB and just after.  Good story, great flying scenes; it
had everything that PH didn't.  Check it out!

PS I know the Spitfire weenies will be complaining about the mixed bag
of MK V and MK 9 Spits flying together during the BoB, but get over
it.  At least they had the real things flying instead of CGI!

Hey Bob, Dark Blue World is very good,I recently picked it up on DVD. I
thought the very same,regarding the Spitfire purists,but didn't those
Merlins sound great? Reading the subtitles wasn't that much of a
chore,either. Cheers,Kelly

JEEZ, you figure if I liked the movie so much, I could at least get
the TITLE RIGHT!  It should read "Dark Blue World", not "Deep Blue
World".
DUH!!

Actually, they had a combination of new footage (shot with TFC's Mk. V
"EP120", and Robs Lamplough's Mk VIII, "MT928" and some static mock-ups),
out-takes from the 1969 "Battle of Britain" movie, AND some CGI. The CGI was
used to "multiply" the aircraft (a great deal more subtly than the
photographic matting used in 1969...), and smooth over the joins between the
outtakes and the new flying footage. Myself, I think that's where CGI is at
it's best -- enhancing and expanding real footage, because then the CG
artists have got real textures and real physics to work from. That said, I
really liked _some_ of the CG in Attack of the Clones (and really _hated_
some of the other bits...;-0)

best regards,
Matt

Aw, don't feel so bad about the title. Over on a GIJoe group, when "We
Were Soldiers" was hot, most of the guys there who had such a fit over
it called it "We Where Soldiers", "We Were Once Soldiers" or "We Were
Soldiers Once". :)

Yeah I don't know what it is about that title, but I also keep messing
it up when I think about that movie. Is it any good? I missed it when
it appeared locally as I had no idea it would be gone the day after I
saw it advertised and it isn't playing anywhere close. I was too busy
at the time to see it. I had a tough time finding it on moviefone.com
b/c I kept messing up the title.

It's currently out in Video & DVD, I rented it at Hollywood Video, but
I'm sure Block(head)busters has it too.  I'm sorry I didn't see it in
a good movie house, I'm sure it's a blast to see on a BIG screen!

P.S. I think it's well worth seeing!
