    Hollywood's version of El Alamein?

    Here it comes, and Rommel must be laughing at its possible mistakes.

    Lots of casting actors looking for in bad English accents and those that look good in khaki shorts with knee length socks?

    I will likely check that one out.

    It was a fascinating battle, and was a "turning point" in North Africa.

    But, as "grounded in history" as he claims to be, the article made it seem as if the British were vastly outnumbered. They weren't.

    Rommel's Afrika Corps was mean and elite, but, other than that....the British RAF was already establishing Air Superiority, and, the Royal Navy was soon to take dominance of the Mediterranean....

    Still, though....I love good War movies.

    Can't WAIT to see the remake of Midway (Which is a REALLY fascinating battle!!!)

    Sol Star: He's not mad.
    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.

    A lot of the time warfare is dull and repetitive.

    That's why we need Hollywood's most realistic rendition of sitting and waiting to cross the start line.

    We need Tinseltown's most authentic militarians (not Brad Pitt) to play it through.
