Thin Red Line is among Malick's strongest. Its philosophy is appropriately partnered with its exploration of the nature of war and the nature of humans in war. This elemental film is spiritual and definitive of Malick's wondrous style.
A gleeful film where Disney finally decided to take a different approach to the idea of "true love's kiss" and exemplifies it through a triangle of protagonist vs. antagonist vs. the in-between. The songs are entertaining, albeit oversung, yet only half the songs in the film mean something and are related. It's funny and graceful, but not without its various stumblings that start as early as its first five minutes.
The balancing of heartfelt characters in different ways is approached in a good way while also commenting on its society through both class and gender considerations. The interplay between Meredith and Lon is rather strong.
The sequel is just as entertaining as the first, taking advantage of its style and presentation. Its humor, however, seems to be placed in awkward, desperate moments just to balance itself out in the entertainment portion. But, it doesn't seem to realize that it's a story that could get away with just being serious and light-hearted the whole time, without the inclusion of Jack Black's comedy.
