I won't watch it.
I understand the rationale of those who will - that it's the best we can hope for in these time. They're right, although I suspect from time to time, somebody will come along and get it right.
For now, we'll have to do without the non-CGI grandeur of Doctor Zhivago, Gettysburg, Schindler's List, and The Lord of the Rings. And wonder if they'll ever be able to make movies like that again, given the labor component of six zillion extras and on-site filming expense.
But we can still enjoy excellently made "small sets" that don't require CGI. I can pop in my DVD of Twelve Angry Men or go back and see Knives Out for a third time.
But I can't sit through video games. I don't know if my way of viewing movies is unique or ubiquitous, but I become immersed in them. I love that feeling. But there's no immersion when the graphics stink to high heaven.
absolutely agree... looks all wrong and to top the idiocy is that phone call of the German sub captain... omfg what's wrong with all those movie makers?
For some movies, you just have to check reality at the door, sit back, eat your popcorn, and enjoy the ride.
I like Tom Hanks as an actor and my wife likes Tom Hanks as an actor. It'll probably be the only "war movie" I can get her to attend at a theatre with me.
I try to live by two words - tenacity and gratitude. Tenacity gets me where I want to go and gratitude ensures I'm not angry along the way. - Henry Winkler.
