    I actually think the 'bad shooting' maybe more realistic than we think.

    I was shooting at targets 20m away earlier this year and I couldn't even tell if I was hitting the thing.

    It's hard enough shooting a stationary target without stress let alone a moving one in the dark.

    Maybe we're too used to seeing movies where every one is a sniper.

    Bombshell

    Incredible performance by Charlize Theron, very powerful. Good flick.

    Yeah... I expect it to. Has the obligatory love story as well.

    The visuals look fantastic though.

    You had to have balls of steel to fly those slow dauntlesses in a vertical dive through flak and zeros.

    that's not good, I was hoping for something decent

    tbh the only good film about Midway is the Japanese movie Yamamoto.

    The loudest Voice on Stan was very good, Crowe was brilliant as Aimes.

    I'm watching this now, I wonder if it's worth watching the movie afterwards or if they cover the same ground.

    It took me a while to see past the make up but once I did, yep, it was an awesome performance by Crowe.

    Think the movie is mainly about the sex scandals?? Could be wrong?

    The show was brilliant how it showed how he set up the whole shebang. And the 9/11 episode was very powerful.

    I actually thought this was better than Bombshell. Crowe was so much better than Lithgow and I think the movie went pretty easy on Ailes compared to the series.But the movie was still pretty decent.

    Lol if you want to see bad shooting watch 12 Strong. Worse than stormtroopers from star wars and Germans from 60s and 70s movies.

    Taliban couldn't hit charging cavalry with machine guns, ak47s, tanks and rockets.

    Haven't seen the movie yet. But I thought the loudest voice was excellent.

    I thought the movie might go after him even harder.

    Go.

    Basically the Ka-GoKart Kid...

    Absolutely derivative hero's journey lol.

    But decent cast, some nice little payoffs and Richard Roxborough munching scenes. Kids are likable and my kids enjoyed seeing Aussie kids /settings / accents.

    Goes against cliche in parts which is a nice payoff against the cliche and tropes it steals (and in a couple of instances knowingly LOLs at itself using these tropes).

    Has a great soundtrack and a bit of a retro vibe. Would have been a movie tie-in book with Arrow Book Club back in the 80s.

    Hackman confirmed in 2008 that he'd retired from acting - http://in.reuters.com/article/lifestyleMolt/idINN0429553020080605

    Also if people are talking about Hackman, how can you forget him as Popeye Doyle in The French Connection? He won the 1971 Academy Award for Best Actor for that role.

    Beside those movies other have mentioned, I thought he was also great in -

    Hoosiers as Coach Norman Dale;
    The Firm as Avery Tolar;
    Crimson Tide as Captain Frank Ramsay;
    Get Shorty as Harry Zimm;
    Enemy of the State as Edward 'Brill' Lyle.

    I also loved his small role as Harold the blind man in Young Frankenstein.

    I don't think I ever really saw a film of Gene Hackman's I didn't like, although I've never got around to seeing the last one he did with Ray Romano back in 2004.

    I'll have to dig out Royal Tenenmbaums for a re-watch.
