    Why are you posting in a George Lucas fan forum? Confused.

    George Lucas produced it. I believe Anthony Hemingway Directed it, Hemingway is African American and from the same place a lot of the pilots came from "Louisiana" or the South. Hemingway also produced one of my Favorite HBO TV shows Treme!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The HBO movie is also good but it's very over-the-top and theatrical, the aerial dogfights are terrible (they used stock footage - interesting but not very exciting to watch cut into a movie) and the writing is terribly "on the nose" much of the time. Red Tails looks better and has a vastly superior visual style.

    EternalHero,
    I don't know if you thought I meant Hemingway Directed the HBO movie but I actually meant Hemingway Directed Red Tails and George Lucas Produced Red Tails. the reason I brought up HBO is because Hemingway Produced one of my favorite HBO shows "TREME" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
