Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

That’s really bad. I don’t see how you can fuck up a CGI vehicle like that.

 

The guys who made the film "USS Indianapolis" (starring Nicolas Cage) would like you to hold their beer while they proceed to lower the bar.

For some reason, that Portland-class cruiser was in the middle of mutating into an Iowa when the Japanese decided to voice their disapproval.

 

So...yeah, the CGI guys are occasionally capable of utter blasphemies that simply elude our understanding. Sorry for the naval digression, I just felt I had to post it in response to Conner Webb's statement.

I watched 15 minutes of that movie and my eyes started to bleed. That movie has to be the most pitiful laughing stock of military films in the past 5 years for the most horrible CGI and animation. It passed American Sniper by miles in my book for pathetic attempts.

For some reason it sports a DShK. You'd think that, with the US armed forces' blessing, the movie producers could afford an actual M1A2, but noooooo...

And guess who makes an appearance after 13 years of retirement?

To be fair, though, there's a good chance this is just a mockup rather than the real deal. I mean, are there even flyable Tomcats (for exhibitions or whatnot) still around? Most of them are either already dismantled or rusting away in an aircraft cemetary.

P.S. Yes I know it's the wrong thread for the last two pictures.

Honestly, the tanks are probably the least bad thing about this movie...

 

 

 

Where did they get a T-34/76?  If they used a T-34/85, I would not have been surprised, those are easily available.  I didn't think there were many T-34/76 tanks around in running condition.

It's not a real T-34. They get away with it in a really quick shot from far away, but closer up it looks terrible.

 

So they used to a fake T-34 to play the role of the German tank...
