“1917” just received Best Motion Picture: Drama at the Golden Globes and it is also nominated for Best Picture for the Oscars. Also, it’s been getting a lot of great reviews. The previews look pretty intense and I’m always down for a good war movie, so this is a no-brainer to go see.
*The MEAT* The story is *Simple*: it takes place during one day in WW1 where two soldiers are asked to do the impossible.
*The POTATOES* The acting is good; seems they wanted a couple of no-name actors to take the lead, so the audience relates to their innocence and experience better. And that works *Very Well*.
*EXTRA* I just have to mention that the Director, Sam Mendes made this film look like one long continuous shot, which gave the audience the feeling that you were with these soldiers every step of the way. And he achieved this in a most masterful way, very *Intense and Suspenseful* He should win Best Director for sure this year. Also, with this awesome director’s job came the best Cinematography of the year by far. It was just so *Gorgeous* all the background shots, it left me mesmerized and in awe of its scale.
*The VERDICT* Oh, *You Have to See This* on the big screen for sure. “1917” is unlike any war movie you have ever seen, just *Amazing* what the Director, Sam Mendes pulled off will be studied by future directors for the next generations to come. And without gratuitous violence either, but make no mistake, it is a war movie and has powerful images of the casualties of war. I must see it again soon.
