    1917 isn't the best

    It is however a great watch and a slice of the War Movie Pie

    I have yet to see it yet, but I'm chomping at the bit to see 'come and see.
    Apparently this film is hard to watch because of the graphic content, but a lot of reviews say the greatest war movie ever made. Look at the ratings on IMBD, you'll see a lot of 10s before you see a lower rating.
    I review says "I found this film depressing and emotionally draining. I can't wait to watch it again."

    It was released in 1985 and supposed to be remastered and rereleased this year.

    I really need to see this.

    Was a good watch eh.

    Only bit I didn't like was when
    the Germans seemed to get the letter as well and stopped shelling the front line for some reason

    Its probably the only war film that doesn't glamorise it at all, even if a lot don't intend to war films always do to an extent.

    Grim as fuck

    It had its moments but Pitt was shit in it, I know he was supposed to be chewing the scenery but still.

    Waltz stole the show

    Give over. Waltz was definitely brilliant but Brad was fantastic as was Ei Roth

    we were soldiers was basically the same thing as the Patriot and braveheart, entertaining movies. I don't know how they let us see all these movies in school. teachers gave zero fucks in the 90's.

    To each their own, I didn't like him in it at all, was cringey as fuck, was probably the plan but it didn't work as far as I'm concerned.

    Are you misplacing cringe for tongue in cheek? Not having a pop, legit question.
