  1. Funny, I didn’t opine on your original review. I tend to see movies awhile after their releases. My thoughts:

    1) I wondered why Nolan fictionalized the account of Charles Lightoller, and found that answered when the young Sea Scout aboard died after a fight with a soldier with PTSD. I found this to be a disturbing re-write of history. Nolan doing a movie on the Lincoln assassination and having John Wilkes Booth gain a girlfriend who does something dramatic and ahistorical would be a good parallel.

    2) The events on the beach were a bit fantastic. We see a couple of groups of men wandering around wherever they want and they are never challenged by a non-commissioned officer. “Oh really? Well, you’re in my unit now!” must have happened quite a lot. People today simply do not understand how military discipline works.

    Other than that, it was a decent movie. Still, it needed more Stuka sirens, even if we never saw the dive-bombers, and more rust on the RN ships.
