Took a compelling real life event and turned into a 90 minute shoot out. Plus, the deification of Navy SEALS in Hollywood is getting pretty tiresome. They're incredibly tough and brave, we GET it. Jesus.
Those guys are pretty badass, but Hollywood is over doing it. I've been enlisted for two years and have only met five Navy Seal soldiers. One thing I did notice is just how disconnected they are for everyone else. They came into supply to get ammo for the range and didn't even acknowledge we were there. Oh well, we all fight for the same cause.
There is also a sequel based on this ending. Not as good as the original, but if you are a fan of the 1st it is watchable. Kind of a Boondock Saints to Boondock Saints 2 magnitude of a drop off.
Yeah I saw it. Worth watching if you liked the first one.
A Million Ways to Die in the West
Too long and the jokes are pretty hit-or-miss(more on the miss side of things) but it was moderately funny. A lot of the comedy is sort of retro-observational; jokes like doctors back then treating wounds by letting a bird peck at it and shit. Tons of cameos. Charlize Theron was probably the best part of the movie; she was fun and charismatic.

Movie about troubled kids and adults with a troubled past so you know it will be emotionally intense but the characters were handled very well. The director had some really good timing and editing which kept you off balance and really in the room for some of the more intense scenes. Soundtrack felt natural and the ending was satisfying without feeling trite. Its a movie I'd probably like more than most but it was definitely an objectively strong film.
