The Favorite [2018]
Sublimely well crafty period drama with a modern dialogue of the reign of Queen Anne during the war with France and her relationship with two competing women. Worth seeing more than once.

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016)

19-year-old Billy Lynn is brought home for a victory tour after a harrowing Iraq battle. Through flashbacks, the film shows what really happened to his squad - contrasting the realities of war with America's perceptions.

Excellent! Keeps you glued to the story.

**** 1/2

Triple Frontier [2019]
Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal as ex special forces who attempt to rob one of the world’s most violent cartels. I liked it. It's a story of greed and friendship and a backhanded slight against how the US military/government treats the soldiers who have done the heavy lifting in wars for our politicians.

Triple Frontier (2019)

Loyalties are tested when five former special forces operatives reunite to steal a drug lord's fortune, unleashing a chain of unintended consequences.

The first hour of this two hour movie, is pretty much as you'd expect from Hollywood, with stars of this stature, all - "we are 'merica! we can go and shoot all the bad guys!",  then just after the half way mark, it gets interesting.

I won't spoil the movie, it's a good movie and well worth a watch.
