Movie Review: Flyboys

Well I got an HD receiver from DirectTV yesterday. Wow is the picture amazing. I had no idea based on the demos in stores. I ran across Flyboys on Showtime HD, I think, so I taped it and watched it at dinner time last night.

Basically the movie is the story of a French fighter squadron, composed mostly of American's, during World War I. The story is pretty standard formula stuff. Young men coming of age, not prepared for the horrors of war, blah, blah, blah, blah.

The best reason to watch the movie is the dogfight scenes. Basically, you are flying around in a wood/cloth plain with a big old nasty machine gun on the front, not fun. The scenes are easy to follow and the cinematography is amazing.

Definitely worth watching. I'm giving it four asterisks out of 5. rating: ****
