like basilone

rewatching the first half of the pacific is honestly revelatory, because i spent so much of it confused and annoyed by that fact in my first watch, then settled in just in time to get attached to the second half guys - that’s why i didn’t like it, not because it was less interesting. now that i’ve got more secure footing wrt who’s who and what’s going on, things keep knocking me right the fuck out like BASILONE GOING FULL STEVEN SEAGAL ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER  ACTION BADASS BECAUSE HE IS THAT GODDAMNED DETERMINED NOT TO LOSE HIS FRIENDS AND LET THE TRAGEDY EVERYONE IS EXPECTING PLAY OUT.
