    2. The Cinematography 

    The best "war movie" to date, in my option, so polished and pretty, with a consistent and beautiful colour palette; can movies about the worst human invention be so aesthetically pleasing? 

    3. The Craft 

    Nothing against special effects but I love when actual props are…
