Apocalypse Now Final Cut 10/10
Having only seen this movie on the small screen, watching it in IMAX gives it so much more impact. For me this is the greatest war movie ever.

I watched two movies that were not treated kindly by the critics and was well entertained by both - Shaft and Men in Black: International

Either my standards are slipping or our expectations are just too demanding.

I love FMJ, but I can only imagine that AN is made for IMAX more than any movie I could think of. Haven’t seen it on IMAX, but I can imagine it is just incredible.

I'd love to watch 2001 in IMAX. AN is quite flabby in the middle sections. The start and ending are brilliant.

Full Metal Jacket is a brilliant movie no doubt, but for me Apocalypse Now has scenes that stands out more and says a bit more. "Never get out of the boat. Absolutely goddamn right"

Schindler's List (1993) - 8/10

An amazing movie. I love World War II movies that aren't about the trenches.

'Fury' from not so long ago was brilliant for me as well.

Off the WWII thing, I always wondered why Waterworld was never a big deal
Found it very entertaining back in the day, like a mad max vibe on the ocean

We caught this playing on TV not so long ago, and watched it, and enjoyed it, again.

I think The Pianist and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas are both better movies than Schindler's List, within this specific genre.

I recently watched AN Director's Cut again after many many years...always thought this movie was rather over rated, overly long and convoluted and also quite self indulgent.

84C MoPic
Deer Hunter
The Thin Red Line
Platoon
Full Metal Jacket

are all better Nam movies...
