Andrew Garfield is the star of Mel Gibson’s latest film, Hacksaw Ridge. Garfield plays real life WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, a man who joins the army but refuses to kill people…

I don’t know what the word is for how this trailer makes me feel but I know I’ll have to be in the right mood to sit and watch. It seems to have a kind of Forrest Gump quality but pulls even harder at the heartstrings; all of which makes me think that the end product is going to be dare I say, overly sappy.

Perhaps I’d be more intrigued had the trailer not revealed so much. All that has been left out of this trailer appears to be the presentation of the Medal of Honour. As continues to be the case, I ‘m missing the good trailers of the past that really cleverly showed you only enough and never too much.

My favourite Mel Gibson directed movie will likely always be Apocalypto (2006).

Sam Worthington, Ryan Corr, Luke Bracey, Vince Vaughn and Hugo Weaving also star.

Hacksaw Ridge Release Dates: November 4th ,2016 (US); (GER)

LAST NIGHT (2010): You Can Be Happy And Still Be Tempted. True or False?

Last Night (2010), is a beautifully told story and well-paced drama/romance about a young, professional married couple who must confront their past and potential future, as they spend a night apart. All this, thanks to an attractive new colleague and a chance encounter with a past/first love.

Besides the hypnotic musical score and attractive young cast; featuring the wonderfully-faced Keira Knightley, Avatar’s Sam Worthington, plus Eva Mendes and Guillaume Canet; two things stood out for me in this film.

The first is a reminder to always trust your instincts. The second is the necessity to tread carefully in romantic entanglements – because, given the choice, nobody really wants to have someone from their past that they label as ‘the one that got away.’

One more thing. Did I already mention the enchanting musical score?
