Fighting With My Family is a Heartwarming Tribute to The Real Skill & Difficulty of Professional Wrestling (Review)

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I sat down to see Fighting with My Family.  I knew it was a movie that somehow involved wrestling and that’s about it. I hadn’t even seen the trailer and I couldn’t tell anything from the audience.  Different films bring different audience demographics and this one was all over the map.

Hacksaw Ridge: Bar None, the Best War Drama in Recent Memory [Review]

Hacksaw Ridge: Bar None, the Best War Drama in Recent Memory [Review]

The true story of the heroics of Pfc. Desmond Doss is nothing short of incredible, unreal, and every other superlative you can come up with. Director Mel Gibson (Braveheart) admirably tells Doss’s story in Hacksaw Ridge, a powerful war drama steeped in grace from its main character and horror from its battlefield sequences. Hacksaw Ridge does not shy away from its unwavering principles in a time where the world was tearing itself apart. While it might feel clichéd at times, the cast of Hacksaw Ridge elevates those moments and give balance to a war drama that doesn’t need to rely solely on war violence to drive the narrative. War dramas are a dime a dozen, but Hacksaw Ridge is without a doubt the best war drama in recent memory and the first movie of the fall that could (and should) generate some Oscar buzz.
