Tora Tora Tora Blu-ray Extras,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tora! Tora! Tora! [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
I would full heatedly agree with the other very favourable reviews of both content and picture quality. No one seems to have mentioned that on the Blu-ray there is an excellent collection of ten short Fox Movietonews Items. The documentary 'A day of Infamy' which was on the DVD is also included. Also 'History vs Hollywood Tora Tora Tora A giant Awakes' and 'AMC Backstory' which tell of the making of and that for once how the American Studio tried to truthfully recreate what had actually happened rather than pervert the path of truth to show how heroic and single handed Americans had won the last war. You have to remember that this film was made before the days of CGI and real planes were built specially for the film. The next evening after watching Tora Tora Tora I watched 'Pearl Harbour',it's too much love story /relationships and though the attack on Pearl Harbour is more dramatic, is does rather look like an arcade game! Highly recommended to those who like the film and worth the upgrade from DVD especially for the very interesting extras.

It appears that the audio commentary that was included on the earlier DVD release has not been ported over onto this edition.

I am surprised that you are 'english'. Obviously, you have not studied English at school and probably not much history either. If you don't know much about Pearl Harbour, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. It was one of the most significant events of the war in that it brought the USA into the conflict.
