I’m just going to be blunt : This movie fucking sucks
Another fucking cashgrab.
This is what modern IP filmmaking is, if you have the IP and you need the money, you have the try to make a movie right? No matter how bad it turns out.
The books are something and the guy is hot so it’ll make $200 million
What else can I say but Masterpiece?
Difficult to watch, but a Masterpiece.
War brings out the worst in humanity and Kubrick can bring that directly to the screen in the clearest way possible: through powerful dialogue/ performances and impressive, effective camerawork where every frame is saying something crucial.
This film made me feel uncomfortable, similar to Full Metal Jacket or A Clockwork Orange.
The last scene was perfection!
I hate giving 1/2 star reviews.
I only give half a star when I'm watching a collection of images and sounds put together as a "movie" such as "Nail Gun Massacre" (1985) or "August Underground" (2001).
This thing, (I'm not comfortable calling it a movie) is a checklist of ideas that studios and producers had to conform to make money.
It's a global business, not creative art or cinema.
