  1. Dogville59's rating of the film War Machine

    I loved the dry humour in this and how it showed that the current state of the military industrial complex is really so ludicrous you have to laugh or else you'd cry. This film makes fun of the whole thing along the lines of Dr. Strangelove which saw the reality as similarly ludicrous.

  2. paul_quixote's rating of the film War Machine

    Meritless. Bathes Pitt's character in positive light (either as eccentric everyman or as tragic victim of forces larger than himself) while proffering THE MOST FECKLESS of critiques of the impact he has on the lives of others. The tragedy porn with the Afghan villagers was horrendous. Everything this movie has to say could be said in 3-5 tweets. If Swinton's scene had been 40 mins long, might've saved this shitpile.

  3. FCC 86's rating of the film War Machine

    "Men are imperfect creatures, left to their own devices, all they really wanna do is play with their dicks and eat chicken"

  4. James Mackin's rating of the film War Machine

    Surprisingly funny, I can't wait for the sequel, War Machine 2: BOB.

  5. bryanvmh's rating of the film War Machine

    I'd like to think that Brad Pitt is playing a general who recently saw Inglourious Basterds and decided to do an impression of Brad Pitt's character.

  6. BRAND UPON THE BRAIN!'s rating of the film War Machine

    This sure doesn't need to exist. ...the new tagline for Netflix Originals.

  7. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film War Machine

    "Look! We got people from Italy, and Spain, and places like that." Thank God for the Americans who are bringing "democracy" to countries in need. The Glenimal/General Stanley McChrystal's biggest delusion was to believe he could win the war for the Rolling Stone cover against Lady Gaga. Tilda Swinton mentions that the Emperor is naked, but the Yankees never learn. Brace yourself for new "deals" in Iran, Syria, Yemen.

  8. Huey McEvoy's rating of the film War Machine

    Whenever Brad Pitt feels the urge to scratch his character actor itch - especially aligned with attempts at comedy - all cinematic hell breaks loose. Crooked eyebrows, jutting jaws, 'funny' walks and 'hilarious' voices do not make comedy gold, especially as these tics are wildly inconsistent. It's telling that his best recent role was as the handsome cipher in World War Z. (And tell Clooney while you're at it.)

  9. Matt Richards's rating of the film War Machine

    This is martini-dry humour and I thought Pitt has great. It's a lovely comment on the inanity of war in general but also the sheer shortsightedness of trying to fix the problems created by a capitalist and globalised world by jumping into the backyards of other countries. There's also great tongue-poking at spin doctoring and the all pervasive modern media. 3.5 stars

  10. Ilona Buffet's rating of the film War Machine

    not sure why I watched this

  11. Babak Geranfar's rating of the film War Machine

    leaves so many expectations unsatisfied! Somehow Funny!

  12. surgery-ethic's rating of the film War Machine

    "You can't win the trust of a country by invading it. You can't build a nation at gunpoint." (2,5)

  13. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film War Machine

    Due ore della mia vita gettate nel cesso: non dice nulla,non racconta nulla,non lascia nulla...una diarrea sotto ogni aspetto. Vergognatevi.

  14. THE APOLL0's rating of the film War Machine

    Cuts through the illusions of the ruling narratives to illuminate the complete insanity, incompetence, injustice, and all-round inhumanity of America's interventions

  15. smndvdcl's rating of the film War Machine

    Good points made - counter-insurgency doesn't work, war is futile (tragicomic satirical tone) and the concept of 'winning' in war is impossible. As a satire, it's hit-and-miss but there is enough commitment to the message to redeem any flaws inherent in its execution.

  16. JCPJD's rating of the film War Machine

    First the good: It doesn't succumb to the Frankie Boyle joke that America will come and destroy your country then make a film about how it made their soldiers cry. Now, the Brad: Oh yes, he's terrible. Is it a comedy? A satire? A piece of reportage? A portrait of hubris? Who the fuck knows - because Brad gives a performance only slightly worse than the one he gave in that Chanel ad. It's just all over the place.

  17. Jake Davis's rating of the film War Machine

    "Ah, America. You beacon of composure and proportionate response, you bringer of calm and goodness to the world... What do you do when the war you're fighting just can't possibly be won in any meaningful sense? Well, obviously, you sack the guy not winning it and you bring in some other guy. In 2009, that war was Afghanistan, and that other guy... was Glen"

  18. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film War Machine

  19. Viginti_tres's rating of the film War Machine

    Is this a comedy? Veep almost loses me each week with its soullessness and nihilism, but its funny enough to hold. I don't know if there is even an attempted joke in this 'satire'. Is it even a movie? It plays more as a filmed version of a rant, a video essay that, while accurate, makes no new points. Is this the same Michod?

  20. Ghostman's rating of the film War Machine

    A great satire of the military industrial complex in America, everyone looks like fool here, no one is spared. I don't get the hate on this one, was it the netflix stigma or did it hit too close to home?

  21. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film War Machine

    Nonostante la sceneggiatura abbastanza scarsa, il lato riguardante la critica satirica dell'atteggiamento celodurista americano è ben strutturato. Lo stereotipato generale fa la figura della pedina esaltata in una scacchiera gigante, un membro impotente, assunto o licenziato come un comune dipendente o un allenatore di calcio, evidenziando l'inutilità della guerra che sta combattendo. Kingsley e Pitt brillanti.

  22. OLIVER-J's rating of the film War Machine

    2.75 - an uneven satire and a disappointment considering the talent involved but still worth a watch (it is on Netflix after all.) I'm in the camp of those who actually enjoyed Pitt's performance in this.

  23. Bogdan Theodor Olteanu's rating of the film War Machine

  24. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film War Machine

    Not good. Seems like it will be in the first 30 but then just lies there and does nothing. Then a shoehorn a battle scene into it. Shame. Hate the trend of last 10?Yrs or so of a young director putting out a classic/great film,showing promise, then bought up by a actor producing his own vanity project and/or Hollywood machine in need of help for a blockbuster property.Ruins their track record. AK didn't deserve this
