Go see Dunkirk.

We were probably the youngest couple in the theater yesterday afternoon.

The wife wanted more character development.  She wanted more American Hollywood-style war movie.  I thought it was done well. 

I read an article about how the movie is full of defeat.

It is not.

It displays some of the harsh realities of war and the human condition - good and evil. 

I have never been to war.  I have never served in the armed forces.  I am grateful to all of my family and friends over the years who have.  I have a great respect for the warrior spirit in the men whom I know and the women who have supportrd, and many of them lost, those men.

Dunkirk portrays soldiers. 

Dunkirk portrays non-American soldiers at war -getting beaten yet not giving up.  The fact that it is about British and French warfare in WWII is unique to the modern era and much needed.

It is full of grit, determination, will to survive - if only to fight another day;  it is full of the desire to see home, to see victory. 

It is full of hope.

Bravo review. Everything I've heard, also.

Yep. This is accurate. After you serve you tend to shoot holes in Hollywood war films. You find inaccuracies in everything from weapons to uniforms and equipment. They overdo the special effects to raise the drama. Not the case here. Damn accurate film and well done. Like I said in an earlier comment, it's probably the best one since The Great Raid. That remains my favorite, but Dunkirk is awesome.

Apparently this guy appreciated the movie. He is a survivor of Dunkirk.

Quote"It didn't have a lot of dialogue. It didn't need any of the dialogue because it told the story visually and it was so real."

The movie Dunkirk tells the terrifying story of the evacuation of allied troops from the French city of Dunkirk.  It's thrilling entertainment for most viewers, but for just a handful of people in the world, it contains images that bring back memories of surviving Dunkirk.

"I was in those little boats picking them out of the water," Sturdy said.

He was a 20-year-old signal man with the Royal Navy helping evacuated soldiers reach waiting boats from the chaos on the beach.

"I had the privilege of seeing that film tonight and I am saddened by it because of what happened on that beach," Sturdy said.

We went and saw The Current Wars last night and although I thought it would be a nerdy or geeky movie it turned out to be quite entertaining as Edison, Westinghouse, and Tesla battle to bring their conflicting ideas on how the county should be electrified. Although a bit disjointed because it covers so much discovery and invention in such a short movie, the main characters strong personalities make a dramatic tension that culminates with the winning bid to electrify the Chicago Worlds Fair.

The movie has several dramatic flashback scenes one of which involves Westinghouse's encounter with a Confederate soldier, reminding us how little time has past since the end of that bloody conflict!

I give it 4 lightbulbs!

Saw midway the other evening — amazing, I was ducking for cover.

My dad was a radio/gunner on the Dauntless SBD — he wants to go see the movie!
