Just watched this movie. The only reason that it did not win the best movie of the year(or any year) is that certain people decided to penalise Mel Gibson.

This movie is faultless. Anyone who understands scripts, cinematography or just film-making would know that this is a masterpiece.

Sorry that anyone cannot see that Mel is a genius.....

Did anyone notice the 'This a True Story' disclaimer at the beginning, then understand the social media # that Mel Gibson went through after 'Braveheart'?

Full metal jacket was great - Hacksaw Ridge another fantastic movie...I was moved to read up about the heroic acts of Desmond Doss, and he was a conscientious objector - he faced a lot of ridicule in training

I liked the movie and I've always been a fan of Gibson, but one troubling part of the story that I believe was accented a bit too frequency was the use of the pain killer morphine. Did Gibson purposely do that? Is it wrong to say that the only way that an average guy could have done what he is recorded to have done is through the use of that painkiller upon himself? I'm not condemning him in any way, but I'm looking for a logical explanation to his super-human effort.

One day Aussie actors will be able to just speak and not fake American accents to play a role. Or you Americans will atrociously don an Aussie accent.

but there were so many Aussies in this, it was ... "Mister Anderson....." all over again..

-- btw, bloody good movie though !! I did enjoy it

Hey, you're right there were a few Aussies in that.

Are you referring to Hugo Weaving in the Matrix? He is English but spent a lot of time growing up in Oz

Not quite sure what your point is? I'm English but have lived in Australia for 30+ years and have seen numerous roles where American actors have been cast as both British and, laughably, Australian.

Good and bad, actors act don't they?

Yeah, Shawshank is awesome. Really not wanting to get into an argument about who likes what more. Just commenting about the production values of this movie...
