    ★★★★½

    Never doubt Spielberg.

    I'm not usually a big fan of World War movies. Partially because they tend to be the same sanitized, idealized and glorified concept of war lacking in the brutal realism that is the widespread meaningless slaughter of millions.

    But this... This was different. While there was glory, there was also anguish, hardship and the endless and fruitless campaign that is fighting a war lacking in personal meaning, just orders to kill in a world where good or…

    ★★★½

    This adaption of the stage musical of the same bag was a mixed bag of happiness and regret.

    I wished they prioritized singing ability over acting, because Seyfried and Crowe really spoiled some beautiful songs and moments as a result of their inability to sing their keys. Just cringeworthy.

    But it's still my favourite musical. And I loved how they worked in elements from the source material that was the book. And Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway and Samantha Barks sang beautifully.

    So it was a bit of a mixed bag of love and dismay.

    Still a guilty pleasure. Still love it. No regrets.

    The Prince of Egypt

    ★★★

    This is really a poor man's, cheap knock-off of 'The Ten Commandments' except without the poor voice acting. And given that I grew up watching 'The Ten Commandments' I can't even give it kid-friendly kudos.

    The one thing that this movie did wonderfully though was the music. From the opening number to the beautifully big pop piece, it really was made to match the majesty of the story.

    So despite a weak presentation, I'd still call it an enjoyable experience.
