    Oh yea, it's well done. Quite the complicated tale weaved around the mcd's monopoly game of all things.
    If they pitched it as a movie, they'd say no one would believe it.

    The large cup wasn't even that big, I drink my coffee black, honestly turns my stomach imagining what that would taste like.

    Really beautiful shots and some really bring out the horrors of war. Seeing the torn up landscape with random body parts and equipment sticking out of the mud.
    The photography was what it was all about really. Nothing else was grounded. The story wasn't real. The way the guys yapped and made so much noise prior to coming up to a trench made no sense. Preparing to take on whatever could be in the enemy trenches made no sense. I say that because if you came across any Germans in the path they were taking, it would more likely be an entire unit, not one soldier. Strangely, every encounter with a German was one vs one, which matches what you'd be able to handle with a bolt action 303. The only exception was a scene where he just ran as flares lit up the night.

    Linked below is where the rapids scene was shot. I found the water action to be very exaggerated, spitting up like it was hoses under there. Movies need their rollercoaster ride even when the geography of the area disagrees.

    1917.
    Alright. Watched to see the visuals.
    Story was lame.
    Germans left their fortified trenches, underground bunker complex and artillery behind. Retreated 9 miles? Because? Why?
    Just to ambush 1600 troops? They probably kill that many in a day anyway.

    4/10. You don't care about the characters or the story really.

    Also in the 3rd episode, they order a large coffee with 10 cream and 5 sugar
    And now I can't focus on anything else.
    That’s how it’s done down there. A double double at Dunkin Donuts is about that. They lean the cup against the big sugar tub (10” dia stainless steel, not sure how deep), and spoon/move 4-5 sugar=1 sugar by customer. Had sludge at bottom of cup...

    Danger Close on Prime, the true story if the Anzac's at the battle of Long Tan.....I thought it gave a pretty good accounting of the battle and the uncertainty and fog of war as well as the heroism needed just to survive such a conflict. 8 outta 10

    Destroyer - I'll watch anything with Nicole Kidman in it, this is a departure of sorts because I didn't find her character all that sympathetic. 6/10

    Knives Out 8.5/10

    Excellent movie. Keeps you guessing with some humor thrown in. Unfortunately, I dont think it will have the se impact to watch again as you already know the twists.
