    I did. I think the film makers did a bang-up job. It really brought these WW1 soldiers to life.

    The lip reading was spot on. That part was lost to history until we got that down.

    I still haven't seen 1917..I'll pick it up soon and then head downstairs to the big screen with my mess kit and a canteen full of alcohol...it's a long way to Tipperary,
    it's a long way to go.

    That was a brilliant idea on the part of Peter Jackson. Another was using WW1 vet interviews to narrate the film.

    Finally watched it tonight without any interruptions...was expecting a whole lot of combat but sometimes less is better..after all of that carnage you would think no more after this one....the war to end all wars was the belief...excellant movie.

    I thought the real rat was the German pilot that they saved from his burning plane.

    Could be, but it set the stage for even more "dog eat dog" fighting later.
