War

Purity, absolute goodness, an unbreakable will; characteristics like these are common within Hollywood films. The difference with Hacksaw Ridge, directed by Mel Gibson, is the truth about this story. There is no denying that what happened back in World War II was devastating; a complete abandonment of morals. But among the debris and smoke of… Read More

Let’s do this properly, shall we. Bradley Cooper is the best actor in the film a mile and the humor never deviates too far either way, so you can appreciate the silliness of this WAR DOGS, which is amazingly based on a true story.
