    1917

    ★★★★½

    A stunning technical achievement by Sam Mendes and the god himself Roger Deakins. The score and cinematography were easily one of the years best. I can see Mr Deakins walking away with his 2nd Oscar. That shot of the flares in the ruined town to Schofield continuing his mission was one of the best I’ve seen.

They all did a great job

And what a bleak ending it is as Frank is left alone as his partners In crime have died and his family have…

    Little Women

    ★★★★½

    Little Women is so wholesome and really creeps up on you until your totally in love with it in the end. Greta Gerwig deserves all the praise she will get as this and Lady Bird were both phenomenal. As a guy, she really gets me invested in these strong portrayals of “Little Women”. I get this nice feeling from seeing a great movie but the melancholy vibes are always strong with Gretas work . 

    Saoirse Ronan kills it as usual,…
