Not exactly sure what youíre trying to get to here, but other than like.... just now, life has sucked pretty hard for humans.

I think 1917 did a nice job of showing that proportionately.

I posted about it earlier, but if anyone hasnít done it, Dan Carlinís hardcore history podcast on WWI is a must listen. I mean a must.

Tank movies, about five years ago I saw Fury with Brad Pitt in the theater, it's really good. I thought even better was the 1988 movie The Beast of War about a Russian tank fighting in Afghanistan. It was filmed in Israel, I think they backed the film. It has a good cast, George Dzundza, Jason Patric, Steven Bauer and Stephen Baldwin. Seems like most of the film is inside the tank or very near the tank, which they call The Beast. It doesn't have any CGI, the only effect would be when they run over an enemy soldier and they do it fairly graphically. It's a gritty film of war in the desert. I rented 20 years ago and then recently saw it again on MGM or Sony channel on Directv. If you can watch this entire clip and not want to see more, then there is something wrong with you.

I liked it. I think the scene following the blackout was my favorite.

I'm not sure that the continuous shot thing was the best idea. I think some scenes would have worked better with a different technique.

P.S. The damn theater cancelled the showing of Unforgiven without mentioning it on their website.

I just got back from seeing 1971. I totally forgot about the continuous scene shooting until he was going down the river, then I was thinking, how are they going to show him getting out. They did it pretty well and from that point on I make note and I really liked having just that pov angle. When you finally saw him talking to Benefict Cumberbatch and was standing at attention. I realized I hadn't really seen him in a while and how different he looked.

Overall, I gave it 10 stars, I really liked the film. Honestly, I don't know how anyone wouldn't enjoy the film, especially any guy, especially any former military guy. Maybe enjoy is the wrong word, it should be appreciate. Like when the Titantic was sinking, you didn't enjoy it, but you really appreciated all the work it took to make and put together those scenes.

Finally saw it today. Outstanding. The constant long shots were overdone a bit (I found myself at times looking for the cheats) but technically and visually it was well done, and it had more emotional punch than I was expecting.

Yeah I watched it before the hype. If you take out the expectations and hype it is really goddamned engaging. When they went into the barracks I actually had anxiety.

It was really effective at what it tried to do. It got hyped (because it was well done) and it got out of hand. But in a vacuum it worked really well at what it tried to do.

This is an outstanding movie, itís been quite awhile that Iíve appreciated a movie for how it was directed as well as the story and the two central characters that were fantastic and had me hooked from the beginning.

This is a must see in the theater.

1917 is the most edge-of-my-seat film I've seen since The Hurt Locker. The suspense was at times agonizing (in a good way).

Not sure I'd want to see it again but it's one of the best movies I've seen in the past few years.

More of a mood piece than I anticipated. Surreal. Loved it.

Not me - I can't wait to see it again. Vast parts of the movie are absolutely mesmerizing. Particularly the flare scene.

This might be a weird way to describe the movie, but many scenes felt video game esque, one in particular:
