Regarding "Midway", the blatant reuse of "Tora, Tora, Tora" footage got annoying, too. There's one scene that really stood out, when a Val pulled out and you could see an American battleship in the background, amidst a forest of masts.

I don't mind inaccuracies in movies made during or shortly after WWII. The Bad Guys weren't going to lend us aircraft to use in movies, so you had P-51's playing Me-109's, AT-6's, SNC's, and P-43's playing Zeros (i.e., "Air Force"). Now that computer graphics make it possible to replicate anything, there's no excuse.
