TCMP #69 – War Dogs (w/ Justin Bell)

War Dogs is one of my five favorite movies I’ve seen this year. It has a sizzling energy to it, an A+ performance from Jonah Hill. It keeps you wrapped around its figurative finger for all 2 full hours. Or at least that’s what I think. My friend Justin thinks it’s a piece of crap. To him, it’s working in a disgustingly cavalier way around topic material that should be taken considerably more seriously. It’s not especially well written. And it bores for long stretches. How will we resolve the tension between these differing viewpoints????
