Until they make movies for free the moguls will decide what gets made. They owe no allegiance to anything but the bottom line.

I have my copy and will be watching it after supper.

Gallup did an opinion poll in the UK regarding the war in June 1940 - 3% thought Britain would lose.

Hello,

From what I've heard the common perception was that we would do better after the French surrender as we had no dodgy allies to hold us back!

Churchill proposed Union with France before the fall, so a large part of whatever they would have called that Union would have been in German hands for most of the war. Awkward, that. :lol:

While that sounds funny, I very much doubt that was the case. Still chuckled at that, not going to lie lol.

I know I am late to the party, Just watched it for the first,second time.

The officer in the night time lifeboat scene is the same one who was rescued by the Moonstone and later caused the teenager to be fatally injured? I understand Nolan deliberately skewed the timeline.

The only character I found interesting is the civilian capt. of the Moonstone.
