Competition! – Win Double Passes to see Hacksaw Ridge

post

By Jordan and Eddie on 14/10/2016

Hot off the heels of his well-received (if low-key) acting comeback in the old school action thriller Blood Father, Mel Gibson’s career revival continues (this time behind the camera) with the explosive war film Hacksaw Ridge.

Based on an incredible true story, Hacksaw Ridge was the talk of the town at the recent Venice Film Festival where the film received a standing ovation and had many critics talking the film up as a genuine Oscar contender, with some of the praise heaped upon the film including such statements as “undeniably moving” and a “thrilling mainstream war film”.

Thanks to the kind folk over at NIXco, in celebration of the upcoming release of Hacksaw Ridge into Australian cinemas, Jordan and Eddie are giving away 10x Double Entry passes to Hacksaw Ridge to our Australian readers only.

  1. COMPETITION ENTRY-HACKSAW RIDGE

    Saving Private Ryan
    A quest to find him……or die tryin’
    The horror……..the beach…….the opening scenes
    Tom Hanks leading…….the blood and the screams
    Saving him……….whatever the cost
    One man’s life…….other men’s lost
    Soldiers of War………these men at their best
    Wondering why……as they go to their rest!

  2. I really enjoyed Pearl Harbor (2001) as it was a wonderful drama based on real historical events. The fact that it had a love story interwined in it enhanced the whole feel of the movie. It made a dark
    chapter seem more hopeful. Great cast too including Josh Hartnett.

  3. Inglourious Basterds – a big, bold audacious war movie crackling with energy and imagination, Tarantino’s trademark rapid fire dialogue and gleeful violence, it’s a masterpiece

  4. Saving Private Ryan, it’s a movie of staggering virtuosity and a masterpiece of terror, chaos, blood and courage, and Tom Hanks is outstanding as its moral anchor

  5. Big epic battles are often visually stunning and can bring you the harsh realities of war – but Grave of the Fireflies, would have to be one of the most moving war films I’ve seen. Rather than focus on the actual war, the film looks on the bond between a young brother and sister as they fight to stay alive on their own. The moments they share as they try to make the other sibling forget the bleakness they face in life.. its truly something special.

    Highly recommended if anyone has yet to see it.

  6. Clint Eastwood’s Letters From Iwo Jima, a profound magisterial and gripping movie about the sanctity of life and how we value our own

  7. The Hurt Locker, a vivid study of urban warfare and penetrating examination of heroism wrapped up in tense exhilirating action sequences, it’s a modern war classic

  8. Come and See – a bizarre, disturbing, phantasmagorical, elegiac masterpiece, which possesses this consistent, ever so gradually escalating, dread that sickens you to your stomach –
    it’s absolutely unparalleled in its depiction of utter profligate depravity Images from the film continue to haunt me as though I was a soldier myself.
