Tom Hanks says something stupid about WWII and our military and racism.
OK, you are mad. I get it. I was peeved too. But it's his right. His right to make assinine comments is actually why those men fought.
Now move on.
People are dismissing "The Pacific" because of Hank's statements. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face!
So help me out here.....are you really going to miss out on this excellent series because Hanks is an assclown on this subject? Really? He is still the same guy who made Band of Brothers. He is still the same guy who made John Adams. Are you never watching them again? Did you stop loving them?
Every pre-review I read for "The Pacific", loved it. I watched episode 1 last Sunday....TWICE. I loved it.
Now suddenly people are saying that it's not that good. Rubbish!
You know, Roman Polanski is a rapist I wouldn't spit on....but "Rosemary's Baby" is scary.
Catch up over at the USNI with "Naval History's Guide to The Pacific". Episode 2 is tonight at 2100.
