I went to see 1917 and I'm glad I did.

First, the crowd was mostly senior.  There was no talking/texting going on, and everyone sat quietly enjoying the movie.  That's a real bonus these days.  I don't think the theme appeals to the younger set.

Second, the experience was nicely summed up by another theater-goer on the way out who said:  That's the best WWI movie I've ever seen.  That was true for me, too.

The cinematography was well done and certainly enhanced the experience.  At one point I was so wrapped up in the movie I actually jumped when an explosion occurred on screen.

This is one of the very few flicks I've seen of late where I felt the ticket price was more than worth the experience (and Bunny and I see several movies a month on our weekly date night).

All in all, it's got my recommendation.  I don't think you'll be disappointed.

 Thanks for the review.  I'll put this one on the "go see" list.

Thanks for the review. I now know the next movie I will see.

The time for action is upon us and the enemy is at our gates. Let us not allow them one more inch of advancement but instead throw them through the gates of Hell.

Same here.
If it's still showing near me I might try and catch it before it gets gone. Some movies are just better in a theater.

Maybe I'll go see 1917 too. My movie pass is actually good for 6 months after I cancelled my movie club membership. I didn't word it right before, but someone said 1917 was made to look like it was filmed in one continuous shot.  Like the camera moves but doesn't cut from scene to scene the way most movies do, and it's in real time. I don't know, but if the wabbit says it's good I believe him.

The theater's closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so it will be awhile longer until I use my free movie pass. I was thinking about seeing the Vin Diesel movie Bloodshot. The special effects look... special. :)

Well, not in the movies but I did the Netflix (or was it Prime?) thing and watched all the Jericho clips the last week.

Thanks a lot for so many ideas. In general, it's hard for me to be amazed at this chapter because I've watched a lot of movies and series since I was little, so I know about all the really good movies so far. For this reason, I often go to various forums and discussions to be up to date with what is new and to see something new. By the way, I've always gotten used to watch full movies online on FMovies because I love this site. Do you know about it?

If you want to watch a movie about two guys going insane with paranoia, The Lighthouse is where it's at. A little artsy at times, but brilliantly agonizing.


Sounds like the left and the Capital incursion.

Anyone seen "Nobody"? Action movie starring Bob "Better Call Saul" Odenkirk. I've got a rain check pass, and I'm very tempted!
