Just saw 1917 tonight.. ***Slight spoilers****

February 07, 2020 06:03PM
Finally.. already looking for autographed items.. which aren't cheap...

My impression is its a really good movie.. not a great movie, but a really good movie.. and now for the spoilers:

**** Don't look below******

Spoilers: I really thought this movie was very similar to Saving Private Ryan in that you have a small group weaving through battlefields to get a message to an individual.. The best scene, to me was the German plane crashing - and then the unfortunate scene of the pilot killing the main dude.. Which also was similar to Private Ryan as they let the German go early in the movie, who came back to kill one or two of them later.. What does that mean? If you have the chance to kill us Germans, you'd probably better do it.. Except in WWI I dunno if a German pilot really would have acted like that had he been saved from burning to death.. There was great respect among pilots in WWI, so MAYBE he kills an infantryman after saving him, but that scene did bother me cuz for some reason I don't think it reality it would play out like that.. now if this was based on a true story and that actually happened, then you can tell me I suck right now...

Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..

  VERY well made movie. NO CGI! You can tell a LOT of work went into it.
