I attended with my wife Karen a preview screening of the film 1917 at the Myer Centre on the 5th of December last year. That seems a long time ago now, Christmas and New Year’s have happened since, I’ve been working in my humble public servant job, the film has become an Oscar contender and my country has been burning.
Some of us have tried to help where we can. Others have forced handshakes and tried to re-write history in their press interviews. A special few have been helping and making a real difference and I stand in awe of them.
I hope you are all well.
1917 is one of the best films of the year, you can find my review here https://scenestr.com.au/movies-and-tv/1917-film-review-20200110
Karen and I enjoyed the film, another great gem from Universal Studios this year that has included Blinded by the Light and Good Boys.
There were sausage rolls and Scotch and in a new twist we got our photo published in the Socials Page of The West End Magazine which you can find here https://www.westendmagazine.com/1917-premiere/#&gid=1&pid=4
I remember there was a buzz in the air after the screening with people talking excitedly amongst themselves about how good the film was. Karen and I went to the Hilton Hotel lobby to grab something to eat. We’re quite fond of the place. I’m interested to know what you all thought of the film.
I wish you all the best in 2020.

Great review, Lloyd. I liked the film a lot too.

Good to be back Pete, how have you been?

Haha. Blog and dog. I like that. 🙂 Nest wishes Pete.
I loved it. Best film hands down for me, Lloyd. 😁
I’m glad you enjoyed it Cindy, it could win Best Picture.
Best wishes to you Lloyd. I’m glad to hear you’re OK. It’s been a horrendous time for your country, something I hope is never repeated.
One good thing has been to see so many good things done by so many good people. Big and small. It’s quite touching.
Thank you for the good wishes Paul, it is appreciated.
I know. The cinemtaography was incredible. Just astonishingly good. And that scene with the rat made me jump so much!
Me too. 🙂
