I Got a email last night from apple TV saying Greyhound was available to stream.
I'm happy they released it rather than wait for the theatres to open.

However, I was kind of disappointed with it.
Sure it was good and all. It got the general story out.
But I just feel they could had done better.
Tom Hank's had his very own indentured servant that loved to serve him breakfast... Constantly throughout the movie.
That part sort of seemed out of place.

The special effects were done in a way to seem as though it was an older movie - which I liked that effect.

It's an hour and a half long, focuses strictly on Greyhound with the exception of the other fleet members getting blown up.
All in all, I'd say it's a good movie, but could had been better.
I recommend watching it if you have 1.5 hrs to kill.

As for official services, it's an Apple exclusive,
However, It's most likely on your favourite streaming/download, platform by now.
Check it out.

Here's the trailer

It looks ok I guess but I’m not signing up for another service to watch it.

And I wouldn’t recommend signing up for it.
Apple TV is the Most useless and worst service there is.
The only reason why I have it is because they gave it to me for A year for buying the new IPad.
This is the first movie on there that’s actually decent.

Go to, popcorn time, 123movies or yify and stream it - no sign up.
Someone has most likely ripped it to one of those streaming sites by now.

Legal as in they have every single movie Or tv series, you could Want or known to man?
Then yes.

I believe their fees are tied into your ISP, hence why there’s no monthly membership fee.
You’ve been missing out by the sounds of it.

Damn, I really wanted to see this. He portrays a soldier in Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan and now Greyhound. I'm not getting Apple Tv just to watch this... I dropped Netflix sometime ago. But eventually it will be available on PPV.

I'm a sucker for movies that people say is so so. Except SOLO! really hated that movie and I'm a simpleton.

Hence I'm looking forward to the new Ghostbusters.

"Left rudder, right rudder" is most of the dialog in Greyhound. I felt the movie was nothing more than events of the ship's log with no interesting characters or character development to speak of.

No, your wrong.
The indentured servant was interesting.
I wanted to know why he was always cooking the Cpt. Food.
There’s a tray of food Brought in, multiple times in almost every act.
He was the true star of that ship.

No, it’s a true story from WW2, in which Canada and the USA take out German U boats.
But get their asses kicked along the way.

No it's not actually.




“Greyhound” is actually based on a 1955 novel called “The Good Shepherd” by C.S. Forester. And no, it is not a true story. The novel, and film, are a fictional yarn about a non-fictional scenario. What you see in the film is the type of situation that many ships and convoys faced as the U.S. and Canada shipped supplies to Great Britain throughout the war.

And here is the novel by C.S. Forester.

Tora! Tora! Tora!, Flags of our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima.

Put some HP on to help choke it down.

I won't need The HP just yet.

Tora.




The role of the Japanese in the attack is very inaccurate.

Flags.




Now, the man who wrote the best-selling book, which chronicled how his father and five Marines came together to lift the flag in the famous photograph, has raised new doubts about the image, saying that he now believes his father is not actually in it. The author, James Bradley, revealed his conclusion in an interview on Tuesday, just days after the Marine Corps said that it had opened an inquiry into whether the identifications in the photograph were correct

Letters.




Such seemingly minor inaccuracies add up to the trouble with"Letters from Iwo Jima." I don’t deny its potential importance in the context of current US foreign policy, which is overwhelmingly seen by the rest of the world as not constructive (according to a recent BBC survey), nor do I wish to detract from its cinematographic merits. Nonetheless, as a movie widely touted as showing the"Japanese point of view," the film poses the thorny issue of rewriting someone else’s history.

Referring to the Japanese government, not the battle depictions.

How does a believed photographic error that went undiscovered for decades make the film inaccurate?

Nice stretch on that one.
