Jong. There are a few. But even if you did not know what they actually said, you would get the best of what they are saying.

Went to go see it this afternoon. Good movie, well done!

I thought gave good credit to the sailors/aviators. Showed their bravery. Liked the bios at the end of the movie of the men displayed in the movie.

Glad I went to go see it on the big screen, first time in over two years. Had a bucket of popcorn and a chili dog also. Movie, popcorn and dog - $20 well spent. And newly remodeled theatre with really comfy oversized seats that reclined. And only about ten other people in theatre.

Friday taking Dad to see Ford vs Ferrari.

I at least don’t need reminding; Uncle Walter went down on the USS Wasp (CV-7), in the coral sea. I thought the movie was well done and surprisingly less commie as I have come to expect.

I went to see it with my brother last Saturday in a MD4X theatre. I thought the movie was well done. The theatre was fantastic. It is the new one in town and they serve decent food and beer. We saw it at 1030 and there were only about ten people in the theatre. The effects of the MD4X made some of the fight scenes pretty intense.
One of the fundamental truths of the universe is that there isn't anything that cannot be improved with the addition of pirates, ninjas, midgets or monkeys.

For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Romans 13:4
