There are so many amazing qualities about this spectacular film that I love, but a good friend of mine once referred to it as "BORE-ah, BORE-ah, BORE-ah".

Deciphering the Japanese title, I see that it seems to be three words which are actually exactly the same... Could it be MIDWAY! MIDWAY! MIDWAY! (?)

Banzai! Banzai! Banzai!

That's a generic movie themed poster which shows the Nagato with escorting zeros and submarine piggy-backing a mini-sub. Only thing is, Nagato had one funnel, not two!

I couldn't love it more. Don't find a single second of it boring.

It's funny when my father first saw it on TV years ago he thought it was boring, but wisely given it another chance he really started to like it and finds it now far from boring and watches it whenever he gets a chance, I saw the film on a re release in 1974 with THE NEPTUNE FACTOR, I on first viewing was a little restless in my seat, however since watching it a few times I find it not boring and a good film. There has been other people with a common feeling, I wonder what is it that on first viewing people can't get into it but do later on, Strange.

I saw this movie in its original general release back in 1970. I was eleven years old and went to see it with a little buddy of mine who was a year younger. I can attest to this film boring the hell out of us. When my friend was bored with a movie -- I think I also saw ICE STATION ZEBRA with him a year earlier where he pulled the same stunt -- he would start throwing his Juicy Fruit at the screen. A lot of Juicy Fruit got flug at TORA! TORA! TORA!

I love this movie. I once read "The Fox That Got Away," which chronicled the last years of the Zanucks, Daryl F. and Richard, n the late 1960s and early 1970s at Fox. "Tora! Tora! Tora!" was not meeting box office expectations. One studio wag said, "In Japan they're cutting an hour out of it and calling it 'Those Were the Happy Times"! This, of course, was reference to the Julie Andrews musical "Star!," which also hadn't met b.o. expectations, was yanked from release, and retitled "Those Were the Happy Times."

I think the film would have done better if it had been produced and released prior to the American involvement in Southeast Asia. By 1970, anti-war sentiment in the U.S. had reached a fever pitch.

This film is vastly superior to "Pearl Harbor."

Five sticks per pack? Not sure what you're talking about. It's been a long time since I was into candy (never figured out if Razzles were a candy or a gum), but I recall that Juicy Fruit was little gummy bear-like candy shaped like fruit. But now that I remember, it may have been Dots he flung, and such things were a lot cheaper back in 1970/71. I think it was only like a $1.25 to get into a matinee, maybe even less, and I don't remember any box of candy being much more than a dollar.

Yes, Dots, but maybe you're thinking of Jujubes?
