Saw this film. I got extremely emotional, my hometown made the Spitfires right up to 1945.

The lack of dialogue made this film intense and powerful. It reaffirmed the incredulous perspective the British Navy, Airforce and military
had of what Germany really had prepared on the coast of France.

Here is Spitfire Island in my hometown

At Churchills speech I was a blubbering mess. This film means so much to me.

Lest we forget.

Your, and others, reaction to this movie is what I think it was meant to achieve. Never was it intended to be a popcorn-entertainment movie. We know Nolan is able to create those. This is one of those rare visceral movies.

Was I the only one walking out after the end, feeling optimistic and wanting to better myself? That's the effect the Churchill speech had on me.

I was going to see Churchill when it comes out on video, but I've read that it's grossly inaccurate in regards to Churchill and what he believed and/or did.  :huh:

Imagine starting a concert with that speech? Hmmm, I wonder which band could pull this off?

I bought a new Blu-ray the other day that included the trailer for Dunkirk as part of the coming attractions. Watching the trailer, I teared up all over again. I had no idea the movie had affected me that powerfully until then. Dunklirk is an official classic, if you haven't seen it yet then you need to immediately.

Thanks for the picture, CTBF!  The Spitfire was definitely one of the Allies greatest aircraft!  I have a Tamiya !/32 scale Mk. VIII [ which a lot of people thought was the best looking and behaving Spitfire!] That may be my next project...

:ebert: Just got my son a model Spitfire for Christmas. Wife got the Revell series and not the Tamiya! D'oh. With trains he prefers diesels and electric. Yet his fav Planes are the old propeller type. Go Figure. He's had a look at your model thread and was impressed! :cheers:

It is a fun hobby!  Can get exspensive if you get into the tools and Paints if you're OCD about it like I am!  I stick to acrylic paints now unless there's a certain color I'm looking for!  Water is a MUCH better thinner than that stuff for enamel paints...

Good tip. The fumes from the paint may agitate his chest. I'll look out for acrylics.
