Red Tails – That’s Not a TIE Fighter

My only exposure to the subject matter in moving pictures was the 1995 HBO film with Laurence Fishburne and it’s always a fascinating subject to revisit, as it’s one of the most interesting subtexts on how social and racial demographics impact the execution of total war. This actually looks pretty decent and raises hopes it will be a good flick, and on a purely visceral level the Me 262s should warm the cockles of any war nerd’s heart.

As an aside, this looks like the first Lucasfilm-affliated product that isn’t a complete wash out of the gate in a long while. Let’s hope the Taint of Lucas doesn’t strike this time round.
