Directed by Saul Dibb; starring Paul Bettany, Sam Claflin and Asa Butterfield, Journey’s End is a war movie set in a dugout in Aisne, France in 1918.
Journey’s End is a story in which a group of British soldiers who are variously awaiting their fate happen to be led by the the mentally disintegrating young officer Stanhope (Claflin)…
I’m interested because this trailer reminds me of a somewhat similar war movie I enjoyed more than expected. Namely, The Siege of Jadotville (2016), I’m onlso intrigued by the ‘mentally disintegrating young officer’ angle.
Stephen Graham, Toby Jones, Tom Sturridge and Theo Barklem-Biggs also star.
Directed by Francesco Patierno,Naples ’44 is a documentary about a British Intelligence Officer in Naples at the end of World War II. Based on Norman Lewis’s acknowledged masterpiece about a war-torn city and its unforgettable humanity, Benedict Cumberbatch and Adriano Giannini lend their voices to bring Lewis’s words to life…
The visuals in this trailer have me very intrigued indeed. They’re, in parts horrific, hugely disturbing but also undeniably beautiful all at the same time. I can’t wait to see it all together. I’m also looking forward to hearing Cumberbatch bring his vocal talent and presence to the cause
In Thank You For Your Service, the new war drama / biography starring Miles Teller and Hayley Bennett, a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq are struggling to integrate back into family and civilian life…
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is interesting and my two favourite war films – American Sniper (2014) and The Hurt Locker (2008) touch on the subject to a degree. In Thank You For Your Service, PTSD is the main focus and so I must watch. The other reason for me to watch is Teller because of his memorable work in Whiplash (2014). Also I’m curious about Bennett. I’ve seen her in a number of trailers but I’m yet to watch one of her movies.
Directed by Jason Hall; Joe Cole and Keisha Castle-Hughes also star.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena’s latest movie is a war time drama / thriller. Directed by Doug Liman, The Wall is set during a standoff between an Iraqi sniper and an American sharpshooter…
I want to to see this since I’m a big Aaron Taylor-Johnson fan and also because it would be great to see John Cena do a great job with the role. Well done trailer maker! Good edit and the tension is very promising.
Until The Siege Of Jadotville, I’d only seen Jamie Dornan in one movie; the hugely successful but not particularly well regarded Fifty Shades Of Grey (2015). Since the latter film, I’ve been looking forward to finding out what else Dornan could do in front of the camera.
Directed by Richie Smyth and set in early 1960s Congo, The Siege Of Jadotville is based on the true story of Irish UN Commander Pat Quinlan and his leadership of 150 Irish soldiers against 3000 French and Belgian Mercenaries.
My enjoyment of this movie isn’t because I was blinded by the beautiful Irish accents. The entire cast delivered good performances and there’s a beautifully tense scene at a bar quite early on. There’s also the cinematography and how well director Richie Smyth and his team rose to the challenge of capturing military combat.
By the end of the movie, I was left inspired to fight my corner when necessary, happy to have found my favourite Jamie Dornan movie to date and reminded to be careful of underestimating my opponents, however in my favour the odds may appear.
Watch The Siege Of Jadotville which also stars Jason O’Mara, Mark Strong, Danny Sapani and Sam Keeley- to name just a few because there’s is more to enjoy than just the lovely Irish accents.
