    Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo.
    Yes it’s Romeo and Juliet this week.
    Is this a film that you would die to see it one last time, or would you give it a few stabs to make sure the job is done before heading home to watch a good film?

    Yes, that's right! This week we have Hacksaw Ridge on trial and the team do their best to judge the film on its own merits and not on the deplorable views and actions of its director.
    Can Joel convince Gav that this is a tasteful retelling of a true story that manages to capture the essence of the war and deliver real context and compassion for the horrors of war? Can Alex persuade Gav that this is an extension of the directors views and is just an excuse to show gratuitous violence and explosions while feeding into the stereotypes created during the WW2 propaganda regime.
