Telling an historical story comedically and missing a level of entertainment.
The Imitation Game (2014) - Codes, war and homosexuality in an interesting balancing act.
Woman in Gold (2015) - Succeeds in telling a story that's interesting.
Lincoln (2012) - Reducing the impact by drawing out history with false sentimentality.
Lone Survivor (2013) - Hilarious dialogue and ridiculous war scenes make an odd mix.
