091. American Made

A based on real events flick is under the microscope this week on MOVIES in 4K. American Made has a major tonality issue according to one of the hosts, and to the other one…it just may be a mockery of the events that happened during the late 70’s into the mid 80’s all revolving around a drug-runner. This movie stars Tom Cruise playing Barry Seal and Domhnall Gleeson playing “Schafer”. Is this a film worth scouting out? How is the jittery camerawork? Did the director capture the time period accurately? How is 4K video quality? Do we get ample use of HDR? Could there be digital noise in this production? Click the Play Button to get all the answers and discover why the hosts disagree on this one!
