    Something about Jane Campion films, they seem to be kind of slow paced but draw you in. I must re-watch "The Piano" which is a fantastic film.

    I still think Apocalyse Now is epic. Especially the redux version.

    If you liked the Ray Donovan series you'll love the new movie.

    Just started the "Gallipoli" miniseries on Netflix. Shaping up to be pretty impressive. Fellow history buffs should find it pretty intriguing. I don't know how it got past me all this time, been out for 6 years.

    7 or 8 episodes so it should give me some well needed distraction as the snow and sleet move through over the weekend.

    Matrix Resurrections is just erm....just bad. He whispers all the way through which is really annoying and the fighting may as well be from a 70s Hong Kong Fooey B film. It was so complicated that I really couldn't be bothered to figure out what was going on. Good grief, I only watched it to the end to say that I did. Don't bother, really, don't. : unamused:

    Out In Front.
    Finished it in 2 rainy afternoons. Pretty good. Bounces back and forth between a squad of diggers and the Allied MEF Command. Doesn't paint a pretty picture of most MEF senior officers but then it was pretty much their fault the whole thing went pear-shaped, that, atrocious planning, and inadequate amphib technology. The film doesn't overdo the absolute Hell of WW1 graphically yet still includes enough brief, disturbing imagery to give the audience a genuine appreciation of just what an absolute horror show that war was. There are a couple jaw dropping depictions of trauma, so viewer beware.

    It's kind of like a mini-Band-of-Brothers with a more cerebral tone, similar to "The Thin Red Line." Technically it's pretty accurate. You have to be really paying attention to the minutia to find any discrepancies(I saw at least one Ishapore SMLE in the mix, Aussies used Lithgows). It's definitely one that I'll sit through again before too long.

    Hope I didn't give away too much.
