Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on July 5, 2017

War Machine is Netflix’s new-ish movie that is about neither Marvel’s James Rhodes nor the MMA guy who almost killed his ex-girlfriend, but rather the war in Afghanistan and one General’s misguided attempt to win it. Brad Pitt stars as the General, and he does some kind of voice, maybe it’s an impression of the real guy, or maybe it’s just gruff like how he thinks a general ought to sound? Either way, it’s distracting.

The movie seems like it’s trying to be a dark comedy, but it’s not all that funny, and fairly depressing. Since we know they don’t actually win the war, it’s like watching a bunch of smiling people march off a cliff. I didn’t make it to the end.
