Literally had to cancel life tonight to go to the movies. My happy place for real! Had an eventful day, went to yoga, worked… smoked. A lot lmao. I’ve been sparking up so much lately, not sure if it’s a good thing. But anyways, we hit the 7:20pm showing of 1917 at AMC Burbank 16. Shout out to Josh for accompanying me, we both were down since the film was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. Alongside Jojo Rabbit which I LOVED.
Shit, didn’t even realize it won Best Visual Effects. That’s dope. It makes perfect sense after watching it — the entire film is centered around one mission: 2 soldiers are assigned to deliver a message to stop an attack. Definitely lots of action, guns, blood… all that. That’s all it really is: a 2-hour long action movie.
IMDB plot: April 6th, 1917. As a regiment assembles to wage war deep in enemy territory, two soldiers are assigned to race against time and deliver a message that will stop 1,600 men from walking straight into a deadly trap.
The two main stars are played by Dean-Charles Chapman and George MacKay, who both slay their role. I honestly don’t have much else to say… family was a theme that came up for sure. Movies like this make me sad. Thinking of how many people’s lives were lost in World War 2 make me sad. Anyways, I’d definitely see Birds of Prey first if you haven’t. That shit was fire. This was okay. I think I just had FOMO.
