Masters of the Air


Recommended Posts



Hoping it gets a disk release in a year or so's time. ( Preferably 4k, but I'd take BR if it's the only option).

The compression of audio and video from streaming platforms is a deal breaker for me. 

I subscribe to Netflix for " everyday " viewing on the TV through a soundbar. That's it. No Apple, Binge, Stan, Paramount Plus or whatever. 

Anything "good" is saved for the PJ and my beloved twin 15" Rythmik subs in the HT .

Thank god Scorcese, Nolan and Ridley Scott are trying to keep cinema alive.

Damn, I'd forgotten that B of B and The Pacific were originally from HBO. Not optimistic. 😣

They have to realize that not everyone is subscribed after the initial fanfare when released.

First episode was pretty disappointing!

 

https://www.bbc.com/culture/article/20240124-masters-of-the-air-review-ww2-series-is-gripping-but-creaky

 

< Apple TV+'s World War Two series, created by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks and starring Austin Butler and Callum Turner, is "clunky" in places but reckons with the moral and emotional cost of war.

In a typically intense scene in Masters of the Air, we are put in the midst of a US bombing mission over Nazi Germany. With dozens of other planes falling from the sky and one of their own engines on fire, a fighter plane's co-pilot thinks it is time to parachute out. The pilot, Major Gale "Buck" Cleven (Austin Butler) grabs him by the arm and yells, "We're going to sit here and take it! You hear me? We're going to sit here and take it!"

That scene reveals what is gripping and also what is creaky in the much-hyped series produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. Masters of the Air is a big old-fashioned war drama, glossed up with dazzling special effects and stocked with some of today's hottest young actors. It is also full of the kind of earnest, clunky dialogue and swaggering heroes familiar from classic war movies going back to the 1940s. >
