Closing out the Sony pre-E3 press briefing with Insomniac’s take on Spider-Man was both bold and brave, but did it do enough to satisfy the hardcore?
Spider-Man is Sony’s Trump Card, but is it Enough?

Saw it last week it's pretty good. Tank induced decapitations and mutilation aplenty.

The tea party scene was very reminiscent of Tarantino. Overall this was a great movie. Bradd Pitt is a top notch actor, and La Bouf is developing his skills well.

Spoiler:
it was a pretty flawed last stand tactic, at the end of the movie. I don't know why they didn't lure them to the tank meanwhile creating a three way kill zone with detached MGs. The plan they went with was horrible.

Another war movie explaining how the Americans won every war all by them selves,it is a pity they don't have the courage to tell the truth like how they sold weapons and other things to the Germans whilst the rest of the world was at war.

Movie was awesome. The last scene didn't bother me at all. When Brad Pitt was on that 50 cal s*** was getting real.

or how the outcome of the war was really determined by whether or not germany took moscow which they failed to do as early as 1941.

Sure enough a few months later the seppos join the winning side and commence a land grab in western europe.

Looks like a good movie though. Looking forward to it. Heard a few average reviews but nings knows movies so looks good.

I really enjoyed the movie. Brad Pit did a good job. Agree with Infi that the tea party scene was Tarantino like.
Couldn't get my head around why they decided to put one scene in though, it made no sense to me.
Spoiler:
The scene with the rookie under the tank and gets spotted by a SS soldier. Are we lead to believe he would have been allowed to live after tens of dozens of the Germans had been mowed down? The scene seems wrong and unnecessary to me

That is an excellent point E.T.

Whilst certainly 'not what you would expect' there were certainly one prominent example of exactly that sort of thing that went on during WW2 tho. (I'll spoiler tag it because of its relevance to the plot of the film)

Spoiler:
There is a, now quite famous, story of an American B-17 which was excorted out of German airspace by a BF-109 after a pretty significant exchange. Known as the 'Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler incident' according to wiki (apologies for the wiki reference but it was easily found this way).
Wiki link to spoiler related content (I did this because the referenced url description text still appears green when 'spoilerised')

Within the context of the film, and the particular units and action involved, I agree with your point in thinking that scene doesn't really have a place in the film.

All in all I knew the film would be 'Hollywood cliche' as I sat down to it. The movie was, but the tank battle sequence makes this flick very much worth watching.
I will also say that the film, generally, was a lot 'darker' than I expected. But as the blurb at the beginning states, the Allied Armour really didn't match up to the engineering of the equivalent German equipment at the time.

Spoiler:
The SS were ideologically inspired, much like Hurricane Jim. They had no capacity for independent thought and were blindly loyal to the Fuhrer. I can't grasp how an SS soldier would let an American go.
