I have watched part of one episode of The Pacific just to find out if a coworker’s interpretation of one scene was accurate - she stated that several soldiers onboard a ship before the Guadal Canal invasion were talking about not knowing why they were fighting the Japanese. I guess the idea was to depict U.S. soldiers as not believing in the mission in the Pacific. I’m not sure I’d agree with the woman’s interpretation - but who knows for sure.

I won’t watch any more episodes of The Pacific since Hanks came out with his racial comments regarding WWII. In my view he has urinated on the graves of all the U.S. soldiers who died in WWII, and all those who survived (not to mention those who died or were wounded on Dec 7, 1941). If these people would perform their art and keep their mouths shut they’d make a lot more money.

Long ago I came to the conclusion that Hollywood just can't help it.
