War is fun until someone dies. White men are heroic while non-white people stand at the sidelines. Patriotism, boats, battles and repeat. John Wayne is not really good and I still wait for the movie where John Ford is good at directing.
Even part 3 doesn't show me what the appeal of these movies is. Besides violence. And I have no interest in watching stylized violence anymore. Especially if there is not much else besides a silly mythology that keeps getting sillier and set pieces that look good but have no significance. It's all honor and rules and violence and I simply don't see why we need to celebrate any of that. I don't get it. I don't need it. And I don't need another one.
