    The Grauniad is produced by ratbags (who want the world to be populated with ratbags).

    What is George MacKay like? Is he a star?

    I hear people say he is the New Albert Finney, the New Richard Harris.

    I really enjoyed this. The style is quite mesmerising how it's presented as a single shot from start to finish. My favourite is probably the first half, where it's just the two of them going through no-man's land. It's really interesting seeing what no-man's land looked like. Just a wasteland of mud, barbed-wire and body-parts. I wonder if the Guardian disliked it for cinematic reasons or political reasons.

    Edit: I just read the Guardian review. Apparently 1917 is pro-Brexit, which would explain their distaste for it.

    That's true. For many years when I was living on my own, I never bought a daily newspaper. However since my parents moved in with me, due to the fact they both need looking after, I started buying a paper each morning for my dad, and it's unbelievable what they print at times.

    I thought it was very good. Technically accomplished, extremely well acted by the two principles and movingly told.

    Gladly!

    I do, however, want to say a little more, but I'll keep it as neutral as possible.

    I was as puzzled as Paxton Milk was by the 'Rude' accusation, but having read Orpheum's comments to posts #11 and #12, I think I see where the problem lies.

    I would urge him to re-read the thread carefully, paying particular attention to timeline and context. I do hope he understands what I'm getting at.

    Right! I'd better leave it at that.

    Well, stands to reason, it's obviously rubbish innit?
    Well Dunkirk (2017) got a whole Bunch of Awards and Nominations and it was absolute rubbish/boring/tedious/historically inaccurate.
    The numbers of awards is not (on its own) a good indicator of a really good movie.

    Please note - I am quite happy to watch inaccurate historical films if they are well made and exciting.

    OK,how would you feel if I called you snide or your opinions snide?

  • orpheum
    commented on 's reply
    I suggest that you look up the definition of the word snide.
    .
    Being rude to another user is unacceptable.The fact that you do not understand this is worse.Furthermore you attacked an opinion I have of a film which I have seen and which you have not.

    To be honest, struggling to see where anyone is being rude?
