I recently revisited Michael Bay's 2001 epic PEARL HARBOR. I watched the three hour definitive Directors Cut. I love the film, but wouldn't be better if the actors just wouldn't speak? After mulling this idea over for a couple months now, I've decided that I'm going to make Bay's PEARL HARBOR a Abel Gance like silent era epic. I've tracked down all of the Hans Zimmer score, including all the music in the film, the alternate cues, and the cut cues. I'll be adding in iris shots, title cards for dialogue, and of course be doing some fun themematic Gance like color tinting. I'm working on this for fun, and only when I've got some free time. But the prospect of it, seems really like something I want to watch.
