    I get the feeling I hated this when I was young, but watching it now it is enjoyable rubbish, plus Madchen Amick is just so adorable and beautiful 😍.

    Heartbreaking but vital viewing, throws up so many questions, 

    Why am I watching upsetting things, knowing something terrible could happen, but I have to see it.

    Does she ever feel intrusive, has she been threatened, both answers I imagine are yes.

    How does it effect her seeing such things in the flesh?

    I always say be prepared to watch challenging films like this, but now think it's best to just watch and let it happen.

    I watched this in Glasgow's GFT last night with a room of like-minded people who appreciate the cheesy wonder if this excellent sci-fi.

    The one liners were cheered and received mighty laughs, which made the film even better.

    I even thought the special effects stood up and the eye popping scenes were great.

    If you get the chance to see it in a cinema do so, it really enhances the film greatly.

    Highlight of the film was my brother hitting the giggles for about 5 minutes and starting me off.

    Great stuff.

    ★★★★★

    An absolutely devastating WW1 film about a group of soldiers asked to perform an impossible mission by their ruthlessly ambitious captain. Three innocent men must stand trial for cowardice, defended by their Colonel a brilliant Kirk Douglas.

    Showing the futility of war and the position many soldiers must have been in being lead by clueless and ruthless leaders.

    This film blew me away.
