Moondoggie on the Movies: 1917

1917 (2019)

It's the plot of Gallipoli, plus the told-in-real-time gimmick of High Noon (minus time out for a cheatin' blackout) and the cut-hiding chicanery of Rope, with a Whack-A-Mole rate of celebrity cameos reminiscent of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

Note: the movie Walkabout had less walking; your Fitbit will award you 10,000 steps just for sitting through this thing.

In theaters now.

Moondoggie, thank-you for the tip. Not sure if we are going to try to get through that one or not. I had forgotten that bit in the film Gallipoli. Must not have made much of an impression on me! However, it has been quite a while since we saw it.

BTW: I may end up going to your e-mail address in future to send a comment. the "you are not a robot" pictures are getting harder for me to see (details).
