Movies that Matter is the podcast going beyond basic film criticism to boldly explore a social issue affecting people's lives.

Dec 14, 2023

Adam and Nicole discuss Napoleon and what makes for a good war movie. We don't know what this movie was about and found it a failure of a narrative. Beyond that, the acting and casting choices didn't work, the soundtrack made no sense, and only the costumes were worthy of praise. We discuss what makes for a good war movie including having stakes, an understanding of the cause, and perspectives from among the ranks. Also you actually have to have two armies fighting in the movie for it to be a war movie.

Adam recommends The Leftovers. Nicole recommends Memphis Belle
