    Default 1917

    I haven't seen the movie "1917", but a friend just sent me a message giving it a 5 star review... however. They were a group of 3 couples. One of the guys is a Marine Vietnam vet. About halfway through he got up and left the theater in tears. His wife went with him.

    Count me in to see it.
    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.

    "Saving Private Ryan" - the opening scenes where the tracers streak past the camera.

    It could, or should not have been made whilst any WW1 veterans were alive. I know Vietnam vets who cannot stand just fireworks, let alone a war film. Mum said my dad had lots of problems with aircraft overhead after naval service in the Pacific in WW2.

    I saw it tonight. I’m going to go back to see it a second time soon. Maybe next week. Five stars. The movie is a technical beauty. The kid who played the lead was really solid. WWI itself was a mess. Just one nightmare after another.
