    This was a delightful family film that entertains with a focus on the excentricities of family life that we can all relate to feeling with a nod and a wink.

    I love films that have a positive father figure over the bumbling buffoon trope. In this film, the dad isn't perfect but is sincere and loving.

    The science fiction angle was a look at our over reliance on technology, Wi-Fi, and social media. It's funny relishes in animation that goes…

    Whew! This is a cinematic achievement. It is not just a film but also a harrowing experience.

    The camera work and cinemaphotography are a major part of this film. You feel like you are right there. The long shots without edit in this movie are super impressive.

    It is not an easy film as it shows the brutality of WW I. It is intense and your blood pressure will change more than once.

    This film should be seen on a big screen. The sound and soundtrack enhance this experience.

    Brutal, sad, honest, and an experience you will not soon forget.

    Peace, it really is worth it.

    No spoilers or plot details here. Chalk me up as one of the people who enjoyed this film.
    I am reacting on feelings here and I felt happy with this and I was smiling at the end.
    I have no idea if this is how the arc was originally intended or not. Certainly neither of the two earlier films in this trilogy could be ignored. Yet, I feel an honest effort was made to please old school Star Wars fans…
