Ending felt like a stretch but the final scenes were good even if far-fetched.
    I got halfway through it, but it wore on me. I like Ben Foster and wanted to love the movie a lot. Maybe I'll have to give it another look.

    Hacksaw Ridge. Incredible story. Did a little research and discovered that while much of the pre-war part of the movie was fictionalized, the battle story was accurately portrayed.

    So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

    I liked Hell or High Water. I thought the acting was solid and it was an interesting story. Like others have said, I got a little tired of the bleakness of Midwestern life hitting me over the head at times, but it was central to the story. I'm not sure if it's Oscar worthy, but it's a good show.

    Of the Oscar contenders I've seen, I would rank them:

    Manchester by the Sea
    Arrival
    La La Land
    Hell or High Water

    I still want to see Lion, Moonlight, and Fences. I'll wait for a boring night to stream Hidden Figures. Not sure If I'll watch Hacksaw Ridge; I've been burned by Mel Gibson movies before.

    There is definitely some of Mel's over-the-top style on the battle scenes. But the battle sequence is reasonably true to history. An amazing story.
