Darkest Hour
Posted by modelcrazy on Friday, July 14, 2017 9:45 AM

I just saw a trailer for Darkest Hour movie coming in Nov.

Looks good. I like the line in the trailer “You can't reason with a tiger when your head in its mouth.”

I visited Dunkirk in 1989 when they were an anniversary celebration. Several very old participants were there along with boats that were used to evacuate. The boats had plaques commemorating their participation. Some neat stuff. I assume many of the men I met are no longer with us.

Seems to be the year for British war movies.

The British are in vogue over here right now. If you want to sound intelligent in a commercial you use a British accent.

I've been seeing some commericial about or for something, I'm usually not really paying atention at the beginning, but some actor is seen in a mirror and all of a sudden Sir Patrick Sewart had taken the place of the person looking in the mirror. He delivers his lines with what you have to assume is a real british accent, walks away and leaves the reflection of the original actor still there and looking perplexed.

Honestly, 

We just can't tell the difference.  

-Americans

I want to see the movie, but Gary Oldman's voice in the trailer did not sound like that of Winston Churchill.  This bothers me, because much of the power of Churchill's speeches were in that low, grumbly voice.

It's a Direct TV commercial with Mark Wahlburg. He's replaced by Patrick Stewart in the reflection.

I recall reading about the Queen being upset with Errol Flynn for playing an American GI in Destination Burma which is an excellent movie by the way.  

Errol was a native  of Tasmania and held back his Aussie accent very well in the movies. He told the Queen it was a Hollywood movie and not to be upset.

Yes, and I hope all the Brits don't die like the Americans do in THEIR war movies.
