Regarding THE RED BARON / DER ROTE BARON
It was an admirable film. Well-acted, Oscar or Berlin Baer worthy and I don't mean best foreign film either. Anti-German xenophobic sentiment obviously keeps this out of the running in Hollywood, but then most of what comes out of Hollywood sucks anyway.
And you naysayers, who knock this film because you didn't have enough "flying time", all I can say.
You don't know squirt about film,
You don't know squirt about flight dynamics,
You don't know squirt about war,
You don't know squirt about flying,
you don't know squirt about story-telling
and you don't know squirt about life.
And those of you who just don't get enough cockpit time, and I thought there was plenty, stick to video games and il2.
And a little note, this wasn't exactly the highest budget film either. I don't know if you realize this but film cg and animation is damned expensive. I do not see your complaints about this film as valid. Very well put together. And Lena was hot by the way.
Wow, a film without badguys, IMAGINE THAT!! Probably couldn't handle that either.
