I usually don’t watch war films, but I was so intrigued by the filming style that I decided to give 1917 a shot. I’m really glad that I did.
I think movies these days add a lot of unnecessary dialogue and scenes to add drama. However, this movie did very little that took away from the main storyline. Because the camera never left the side of the main characters, I was able to experience everything with them. There was never a moment when I wondered what a character was doing.
I think it was important to stay with the main character because it allowed the audience to see that every moment was crucial. I felt the urgency and emotions of the main characters because I witnessed their speed bumps along the way. Seeing this movie in the theater is definitely going to add to that feeling and allow the viewer to appreciate the excellent cinematography.
About The Peetimes: Everything blended seamlessly in this movie. 1917 follows the journey of the main characters’ every move, and leaves little room for irrelevant dialogue. This made it both a blessing and a curse to find Peetimes. There were three scenes that didn’t take away from the story, and these scenes made for excellent Peetimes.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of 1917. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Rated (R) for violence, some disturbing images, and language
Genres: Drama, War

Watching movies in theaters is an indescribable experience for me. This, doing laundry, and visiting the Container Store bring me true joy. When I’m not watching movies or getting Peetimes, I like keeping up with the latest technology, learning to code, and building things. Career wise, my passion lies with improving access and equity within the health, tech, and social sectors.
