Hoping to see this one on the weekend. I love seeing war/action films in cinema, they're meant for the big screen. You don't get quite as immersed watching them at home imo.

They really are an experience. With Roger Deakins doing the cinematography for this, it no doubt will be. Off to see this tonight after work
Rather excited.

One of the last war films I saw in cinema (don't count Jojo rabbit in this capacity!) was Dunkirk and that was totally immense. Have you caught any films like this in IMAX before?

So I don't do IMAX for various reasons and fortunately my local (50 mile round trip) cinema has a much better than standard cinema setup to enjoy films But yeah.. Dunkirk I think I also saw on a Friday evening. Full of perhaps those born around the time of WW2 and wow. Come the end you're just kind of shocked with a whirlwind of emotions.

50 mile round trip to your local cinema, is it even considered local anymore at that distance? I'm lucky in that I live close to a showcase and a cineworld which are 10 minutes in different directions. I just go to whichever one has less seats taken for the showing when I check out booking!

Haha. I take cinema seriously and make the choice to go to this one rather than any of the 4(?) that are closer :lol: Thankfully it's just a sprint down the motorway which really then only takes 20 minutes or so. If not I do have a projector and surround sound at home here for anything I don't catch in the cinema :mmm:

Brother is also an extra in this one so challenge of spotting him in this is on!

Damn! Home projector/surround sound? Don't think I have anywhere I could set that up in my place so jelly!

I hope you caught him at some point. I just got back from seeing it. Let me know your thoughts!

One of the perks of living by myself, you make the space suitable for it
Yep. Saw this friday night. I'd go with maybe a 7/10? The way the story was told was superb. Continuous feel following them to the lighting in scenes such as the night flare scene. I just don't however perhaps feel the story was strong enough? idk. Didn't perhaps grip me enough.

Did you end up seeing your brother?

yeah imo the story was a bit generic and not much meat on the bones with regards to the characters. From a technical standpoint the film was incredibly gripping and the sets were insane.

When the rat hit the tripwire I nearly **** my pants :laugh:

The film is thrilling, moving on effectively from one shocking set piece to another, studding the narrative too with starry cameos.

I actually felt that the cameos were a negative. I was really into the film and then Benedict Cumberbatch suddenly appeared which transported me out of WW1 and back into a cinema in 2020. I would have much preferred if they cast less well known actors for every role.
