They remade Flight of the Phoenix in 2004.
Anyone seen it? Is it another pointless remake?


Yes x 2..................
Thank you kit.  Beautifully concise.

The use of a hologram would work well here.

the re-make was alright but I had seen the original several times. It was brilliant, despite the graphics of the time. So the remake was okay - that's all. The high quality actors in the original also contributed - we saw these chaps in later movies.

Paper Kosmonaut did a very good version of HMS Thunderchild vs the Tripods for the Sciffy GB.

one base that I can do several stories on,
river bank section with a bailey bridge, on one side, a middle of churned mud with lots of tank tracks, and the far side with a section of Berlin wall on it, with a couple of sections blown down, with the graffiti side up, and an assortment of Nato armour ready to go.  ( Chally 1,  CARRV, Warrior in berlin block)

most people will think its " futile defence of Berlin".  but it will be called "operation Carousel "   and have the op map showing the massively disruptive strike by the Berlin garrison as the broke out heading for Warsaw, Minsk and all points east   ;D

There's also this version:


That's a KGV class battleship, the first of which commissioned in 1940, so unless they've radically re-written the script....
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

But it'd make for a very interesting dio, if the Martians decided to attack during the early parts of the War

Its also got a Tripod from the Tom Cruise version.

Isn't one of the Harry Turtledove alt history series based on that premise?


I had an idea for a dio during the week while I was in the shed.  I thought "i'll post that in Ify's thread later" and then promptly forgot it.  It's really been bugging me ever since.  :banghead:

It is, but the aliens in that series are rather lame.  Now, Wellsian Martians as the antagonists in WorldWar, that would make it a much better series.  Until the common cold kills them.
