Looks like it could be decent.

It could have used some serious editing, especially one sequence ala Apocalypse Now Redux. IMHO, this is one of those movies that once seen, in whatever format, one never needs to see again. The mood of the movie is somewhat set with the opening sequence that is somewhat artsy, but not to be confused with Lawrence of Arabia. As usual, Brad Pitt delivers, but it just isn't enough to carry the day.

'Ideals are peaceful, history is violent'.

I enjoyed it for the story and acting from the Fury tank group, not for the PQ (unless it was a poor Sony 4k projector or lamp). It was intentional dark and grainy, I assume. However, I would not be re-watching it or want to own it. It is one of the better WWII movies in recent time, totally different from Inglorious Bastards. Never like Shia but he was a nice surprise too.

For a Saturday 11 am showing, there were about 15 people.

Would rate it between 7 and 8.

There were a lot of good things about this movie, but the characters were all poorly drawn. Pitt's is the only one that seems to have some depth to him.


As an added neat little bonus Will Smith was at the screening I saw. He's in town shooting a film about Mike Webster's autopsy.
