GOOD THINGS:  Cuba Gooding Jr., Production Design, Cinematography, Effects, Costumes, Hair, RC Cola

BAD THINGS:  What the hell kind of a name is “Rafe McCawley”? Anything remotely related to actual history would have been nice. Expositional Japanese – feh.

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Ben Affleck with a Tennessee accent and frosted hair. Ouch.

NOTABLE:  Off-center pilot named Goose which every movie including men flying planes must include, Crusty mechanic named Earl which ever movie including men in general must include, Anyone who can explain the Purple Heart thing at the end with the nurses, please email me.

BEST PART:  Well it looks amazing. But it looks amazing for 3 hours. Cuba Gooding is amazing. But he’s amazing for about 3 minutes of screen time.

BEST LINE:  I got a girlfriend
