    DCP / Dolby Atmos: Just when you think this war film is going to be stereotypical, cliched, and run of the mill - it shows you a story you've never heard before in a way you've never seen before.
    See it in a theatre with the best sound possible.

    Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

    DVD: 5 credited writers couldn't pull off getting a single laugh from the female's lead actress: Chloe Grace Moretz.
    I'm sure it was a career move chosen by her manager - instead of all these heavy dramas, let's do a raunchy comedy to show your range. Only problem is: she isn't funny.
    The movie suffers from the same problems as the first one - there isn't a clear cut antagonist - and also the laughs stop 25 minutes into the film. Really not worth your time. If you're a new parent, check out BAD MOMS instead.

    I was visiting Los Angeles in 1999 and saw this at a test screening - so I had no idea what movie I was about to see.
    That's my review. I wanted to explain why I saw this movie.

    Tarantino is so good that even Jamie Fox can't ruin this movie.
    Hilarious, bloody, intense, epic. Exactly what you'd expect from a slave movie / Western from Quentin Tarantino. I had high expectations and this film met them. Always a good year when there's a film from this writer/director to remind us how good movies can be - and should be.
