          If it was like real Vietnam the water more than two to ship at the same time or else it's very big waste of space and fuel

            They didn’t make a scene of the Korean War for lt. dan :( and the US army fatigues didn’t have slant pockets

                    My favorite part of the vietnam scenes is that the bavkground always gives you a sense of them being a small part of a larger war (smokestacks in the background, hueys in formation, etc.)

                          I would watch him go over the whole movie, this is so entertaining.

                                            11:11 Forest Gump - it's a reflective story about a personal life and a cultural history.

                                                    Well, to be honest I always though Vietnam in Forrest Gump didn't really look like Vietnam.

                                                                                          • Bartonovich52

                                                                                            Just one thing that bugged me with this scene... and was an early sign of terrible things to come was the helicopters. Not even during Operation Frequent Wind we’re there so many helicopters in such a little space. Other movies would have perhaps three helicopters at once... but how many were there? 12? 24?

                                                                                            CGI made it easier to fill the frame. What used to be a fortune in location shooting or model making or chartering costs to make a scene that kind of looked real could now be Ctrl + v as much as you wanted.

                                                                                            But it gets overused and either our suspension of disbelief expires or we just get over saturated that we can’t focus on what’s important in the scene.

                                                                                            Movies like Independence Day and the Star Wars prequels and the Matrix and the Lord of the Rings trilogy would push these boundaries and Marvel absolutely destroys them. But they make me yearn for simpler movies where the story, not the effects are dominant.
