01.21.17Internet I really love this time of year for movies... God bless old Academy members who can't be bothered to go to the theater to see the movies they have to vote on.

ANYWAY, I thought this was really good. Really the only problem I had with it was, once the heavy-handed religious stuff started in I couldn't help but remember this was Mel Gibson directing and all his public shenanigans. I guess that's really on me more than him but it still took me out of the movie.

But other than that, I thought it was great. Like, better than HBO's The Pacific, gaining ground on Band of Brothers type great. All the australians did great general-south accents (Hugo Weaving was legit amazing, the rest I'm kind of kidding about), all the soldiers were great, the war stuff was great, the love interest was smokin hot, and the real footage at the end was exactly what I wanted. whew.
