yeah..the saipan part was nuts

 

 

Just turned it on and they're on the Saipan part right now. I went to Saipan in 2001 & 2002 and they still have the Japanese tanks and fortifications there along the beaches. And all the caves you can go in to which the Japanese used for shelter.

Seeing it in color actually does make it more powerful (or easier to relate to) because color is the type of film we're used to now. Black and white is just sort of a universal film archetype for "back then" which may as well be 1900.

 

It helps drive the point home about how all things considered, World War II was pretty damn recent.

^Exactly.

 

Plus it just looks more real and so it hit's home better.

You can actually see the blood and guts, the expressions on peoples faces stand out more, and they remind you of people that you would actually know as opposed to some abstract black and white (back in the day) people.
