I'm not sure how one would portray Korea and "get it right." It's only been in the last few years that somebody -- Mel Gibson -- finally did justice to the American Army we took into Vietnam (not the one that came back) and played it straight ("We Were Soldiers"). That makes up for a lot of the largesse of Oliver Stone and his ilk. Ditto the Rangers in Somalia with "Black Hawk Down". Perhaps now someone -- politically correct or not -- will do a decent movie on the Chosin Reservoir or, if it has to appeal to modern sensitivities, the life of black Naval Aviator Jesse Brown.
You guys deserve a decent film.
