    1. I liked Journey's End last year with Sam Claflin, I'm a bit bitter that they did not notice or nominate that one for anything, but they will this one because it is from a major studio and influential director.

  2. The two World Wars continue to be an endless source of current movie inspiration, I see.

    1. Indeed, and yet it does not seem like the world has learnt anything from them.

  3. War, and endless source of material for Hollywood. Jason will like 1917, I'm sure.

    1. I bet he will! I do like George MacKey, he is one of those actors that star in everything, is always brilliant, but nobody remembers his name.

  4. 1917 is something that I would definitely watch, although I'm sure it will make me cry a time or ten. How was the book The Narrow Road? I just finished a book and am looking for the next read.
