    It seems Steven Spielberg is at it again, after the ever popular Band Of Brothers.

    A 10-part mini-series from the creators of "Band of Brothers" telling stories of America's battle with the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II.
    I'm looking forward to this. If it's anything like BoB, it's going to be a great series

    IMHO, BoB is the best mini series ever if not the best movie ever (I know it's not a movie, but still). It's the only "masterpiece" that captures exactly what life was like for soldiers back then, from training camp to the fall of Berlin. And it's based on the lives of actual people in the same Company, I love the last episode where the veterans that make their appearance before every episode starts (kind of summarizing the episode) are finally revealed (you dont know who they are, but Ep10 reveals who they are [names] and you will know what he did during his life in WWII). That's what I think, go check it out, for me, this was the best 130 bucks I've ever spent (on the dvd collection for BoB). And this looks good too (Pacific War).

"I've gone to school for 20 years now with Oliver Stone, Steven Spielberg, Brian De Palma, and I've considered that a college," he said. First, though, Dye will re-team with "Band of Brothers" creators Tom Hanks and Spielberg on another series for HBO, this one focusing on the battle with the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II. ...
