(just one reason I dislike 4K, which is not 4 times HD, but comes in actually at twice, and that VISIBLE difference more down to color grading than actual resolution, when it is even mastered properly. Like other reviewers I will take well mastered HD 3D with a DLP projector and good Active glasses over 4K, any-day. Heck I will take some Dvds and Blurays over 4Ks any-day. I side with Criterion with not loving being pushed into 4K, that it only serves to fragment an already too fragmented market, for negligible true quality difference. People generally prefer Criterion’s HD release of DO THE RIGHT THING over the 4K release, and other examples of this exist.
When we look back at 2020, I think we will see that was the best year [qualitatively] for physical media releases, and already here in 2021, the move to 4K, is helping to create some unexciting and uninteresting triple and quadruple dipping, and a return to unattractive physical media releases. The branding heavy, boring artwork, no interior artwork 4 K releases are a step backward, and almost as bad as Blue cases, a throwback to the early, unattractive days of Blu-ray releases. And the rise of these bare-bones, unappealing 4K releases in 2021 undoes any progress made in 2020, and exacerbates the downward spiral of physical media).

I love seeing genius at work.
We are all made, if we are not insecure, and frightened, and self -hating, we are all made a little more — free, in the presence of genius. Free to dream bigger and aspire bigger.
A great video.
Here are the titles I recommend:
I am not familiar with the director, Hu Guan, and his filmography doesn’t really give a sense that a big scope war film is his repertoire, that said the trailer… looks great. As a champion of films likes SAVING PRIVATE RYAN and TAEGUKI (Best Korean Made War Movie) and DARESALAM (Best Chadian Made War Movie), I am always interested in great films about humanity’s enduring hurdle— war.
Great war films, while rousing tend to also be cautionary tales about not ending up here again. THE EIGHT HUNDRED may play more like a 40s, 50s version of War Films, more jingoistic, with less room for grey. That said, still very interested in seeing it, based on the trailer. And if anyone is entitled to see clear good and bad guys, China after what they suffered from the Japanese leading up to and during World War II, could be given some slack. War crimes were not only happening on the Western Front.
Much like America today, Germany and Japan of the 1930s and 1940s, were very much governments that were committing horrendous acts of evil; seemingly as a whole, those nations had lost their minds.
So a film about such extremism, can hardly be less— than extreme. That said an un-deft hand can make for an awkward propaganda piece, rather than a salient and absorbing film.
However the trailer has me interested enough to see which, this film turns out to be.
