1917 (2020)
 
1917 (2020) - Rotten Tomatoes

This one looks like it will be quite intense.



I volunteered among veterans at the Veterans Hospital for a year of Saturday afternoons in 1977-1978 in Reno, Nevada. Seem to recall that some of these were from WWI. More from WWII though and even one from the Spanish American war.

Back from seeing 1917 @ Brownwood.

- Theater was packed solid - sold out, of course $5 day.
- I loved 'Saving Private Ryan' (on my top 10 list) so had high hopes for 1917.
- The promise of very few 'cuts/scene changes' intrigued me as well.
- Outstanding sets and production - truly amazing
- Most of the film puts the audience right there with them, very close in the action.
- Did not notice much CGI use throughout
- Biggest negative = the British accents... some very hard to follow...
- Not TOO much gruesome war stuff (if that's a turnoff for you)
- Outstanding acting - esp considering the filming perspective and action
- 2 hours, with much of the time immersing the audience with 'intensiveness'.
- Only twice during the movie did I have 'give me a break' moments

Bottom line SO WORTH seeing, so impactful. I may see it again.

You should see it with the captions on Monday morning or early afternoon. Only $5 and it helps with the understanding the British accents.

I know, once saw an Italian foreign film with captions - and a movie at one of our theaters on Mon with captions.

I found that even though I (mostly) understood the dialog, I missed the full visuals and my eyes were tired at the end...moving up and down for 1.5 hours. :loco: and my pea-brain trying to keep up processing the text-reading while processing the visuals while listening to the sounds while negating the foreign yada while chewing popcorn while.... you get it, life is tough in The Villages. :shrug:

That makes sense. I am used to captioning as I usually put it on for any Blu-Ray or DVD I watch. Just so I am sure about what I just heard.

I will probably see 1917 again before it leaves so that I can catch anything I might have missed during the first viewing.

With Saving Private Ryan I saw that about six times in the theaters but that was when they had $5 movies or even less in many places along US 19 in Clearwater up to New Port Richey in the Tampa Bay area.

Dean-Charles Chapman - Rotten Tomatoes

Noticed the one of the two men who play the leads in 2017 was Tommen Baratheon the very young King in Game of Thrones.

It certainly was two hours and nine minutes of riveting fear! Very realistic. I didn't dare go to the ladies' room for fear of missing something! A reminder of the horrible conditions soldiers endured during a time when deployments were not usually six months, but rather until the war was over! Unimaginable to live with that fear and mud and death for a four year period. May they all rest in peace.
