    Joyeux Noel (2005) - A fictionalized tale based on the true story of the Christmas Truce of 1914 that took place along the Western Front in World War I. Wonderful writing, beautifully shot, and brilliantly acted. While not a historically accurate tale, it does reflect the feelings of the soldiers involved and the idiocy that came from those at the top, and is overall a very touching film. 4/5.

    It could have done without the romance.

    Why do you hate beautiful things? [screamed in an overly dramatic manner for emphasis] :emoji_grin:

    What did you think? A reviewer I watch on YouTube really disliked it, saying that the jokes were terrible and went on for far too long (common with modern comedy). He also said it felt too ad-libbed.
    That really looks pretty good.

    I think you’ll like it. There’s some humor in it. It shows Cheney is quite human, but also an evil piece of shit.

    It was pretty good. It seemed like a normal Will Ferrell movie to me to be honest. So that’s a good start as to wheather or not you might like it or not.:emoji_man_dancing:

    It wasn’t that bad. It had a few good scenes here and there and I definitely wasn’t bored watching it ( too be fair it was only 90 minutes long, so maybe that something to with it.:emoji_alien:)

    I don’t know if I’ll ever get around to seeing it again, but I really didn’t mind it though. :emoji_man_dancing:

    I thought The Descent was a really great, inventive horror, and I was really impressed by the way that it set itself up as an action-adventure flick, then took a completely unexpected turn and went off in completely different direction (in a similar fashion to Bone Tomahawk a few years later). I wasn't aware there was a sequel, and can't imagine that the second film would have that advantage of the viewer never knowing where the film was going. How did number two stack up against the original?

    Ip Man 3 (2015) - Donnie Yen returns as the legendary Wing Chun instructor Ip Man in this installment in the saga. This time, Master Ip has settled into retirement, living in Hong Kong with his wife and youngest son. There are three different plots going on, involving an American businessman trying to buy the property the local school, his goons causing trouble, a would-be Master vying for Ip's spot as the best, and Ip's wife dying of cancer. It's not the most cohesive of movies, but as always, Yen is amazing to watch in action, and for the fight scenes alone it's worth the watch. Even if you have to deal with Mike Tyson (?!?) playing the American businessman (luckily, he's not in the film for very long). 3/5

    The Mule (2018) - Based on a true story of a WWII vet who became the world's oldest drug mule in his 80s, Clint Eastwood directs and stars as a horticulturalist down on his luck and estranged from his family. He is approached to be a driver, and eventually becomes a valuable asset to the cartel, until the cartel is taken over by another person, and his ex-wife becomes ill. My son wanted to see this one, so I got to accompany him, and ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would. 4/5

    The Battle of Algiers (1966) Pretty violent. Those Algerians didn’t play nice. I was rooting for them the whole way!
