The Siege of Jadotville
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The politics of this movie are very interesting. It's quite intense to know how all of the chess pieces play behind the scenes in real life. The effects were a little medium-budget, but nonetheless, a great movie for a netflix release.

The Wailing (Goksung)
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is a different style of directing for sure. There is little resemblance to hollywood here with it's slow, drawn-out story telling, and strange new cultural significance. The element of dark humor was a little strange, and the ending was slightly confusing, so that's why I give it 4 stars.

If you don't mind a totally different style of horror, then go ahead and watch this.

War Dogs
War Dogs (2016)

The execution of the film in the beginning is quite slow, but it quickly ramps up to try to become a 'wolf of wallstreet' type of adventure. The film has the adventure, and entrepreneurship, but seems to lack the grit and dirt of a scarface, or wolf of wallstreet. In the end, it's simply a wannabe film.

But the idea of 2 young guys making millions using a loophole in business is inspiring. That's how the big money is made... where few care to look.

Moonlight
Moonlight (2016)

This movie doesn't not focus on making a point. It simply tells a story of a person, and his life. There are no flash-back sequences, or moral lessons. Why it won an Oscar is beyond me, but most of the theatre left wondering 'what the fuck'? Nonetheless, if you like a movie with no obligation to prove a point, then this is for you. It's good, but missing that emotional hook we are used to with hollywood-style movies.

Hacksaw Ridge
Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

On the one hand, this is an amazingly choreographed movie, with some of the best action sequences ever, and an amazing story... which is cemented by the interviews at the end.

On the other hand, it's action sequences seem like hollywood war-porn (ie. run and gun, spray and pray shooting with some invincibility moments).

Also, the director obviously tried to make a point with the 'needlessly violent' theme of war, but it doesn't focus well on that theme for too long. As well, some of the cuts between time are a bit confusing.

But overall, a great movie, nonetheless.
