I saw 1917 at the cinema tonight. I enjoyed it. It was tense, it was effective, it was emotional. The "continuous take" conceit sometimes stretched credibility in the transition between events and scenes, but it certainly made the film immersive. Good to start 2020 with a critically acclaimed film that wasn't utter bilge.
Definitely will pick this up on Blu-ray. I know it's not nearly the same as experiencing it in a proper cinema with a quality setup, but the older I get, the worse my social anxiety becomes. At this point, you couldn't pay me to get out of the house and into a cinema. But, with all that said, I am always up for a good war piece. I really need to make this my personal "the year of 4K" for my home cinema set up since so many catalog releases have made it to 4K UHD Blu-ray, finally. I'd love to see Patton in 4K UHD.
