State of Origin Captain
I guess movies like Braveheart would qualify then. Great movie, although laughably innacurate for what is passed off as a true story.
Of course! It's the cold war movie. Masterpiece in every way.Can we include Dr. Strangelove in war movies? That was one weird and compelling movie that I feel was made well ahead of its time in many ways. Plus Peter Sellers in like three roles was great.
And it had Lee J Cobb, speaking of which, 12 Angry Man is honestly my pick for best movie of all time. It is a perfect movie in every way and given it is so gripping despite only being in one room with nothing really happening, it’s a masterpiece.
I'm not saying it's a masterpiece, I'm just saying it's good. I've probably seen it 6 or 7 times, it's one of those ones that regularly pops up on Foxtel.Is it? I admit it is better than your usual Bruce Willis grumble fest but is it THAT good?
Speaking of dodgy effects - shout out to Ed Wood movies, particularly Plan 9 From Outer Space, the greatest so bad it is good movie ever.The Odd Angry Shot encapsulates the Aussie larrikin spirit and camaraderie. Effects were average but the story etc makes up for it
lol you can actually. It's not.In 4k can you tell if it's a munchkin hanging itself or not?
Never seen Plan 9, but I have seen Ed Wood, the Tim Burton movie, which was great.Speaking of dodgy effects - shout out to Ed Wood movies, particularly Plan 9 From Outer Space, the greatest so bad it is good movie ever.
The acting could have been better. The people they got did a good job, though. The music choice at times was a little confusing, like when Schofield was running through that town when the flares were going up.. Odd choice of music there.1917 is a fine film. Especially good as a war film but not top five imo. Top ten perhaps. Missing an element that elevates it above very good into greatness. Some of the music choices were odd to me, some were excellent. Acting was good without being great. Main guy looked like Ders from Workaholics a bit haha
Definitely felt like he didn't travel far at all. I like the one shot style but at the same time I don't think it really has a place in war movies.I like long takes, but you don't need a whole movie to be like that (even if it's still stitched together). Looking back, it feels like Schofield travelled maybe like 2ks at the most?
Unsurprising I know but I completely disagree. It build tension, it made you feel like you were in the trenches with them. The music in the town was a contrast in order to do two things - give a break in the tension and give the movie a surreal feel. Did it work? I am not sure either.Definitely felt like he didn't travel far at all. I like the one shot style but at the same time I don't think it really has a place in war movies.
