An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.
This was actually the first movie I watched this year, wheeeee! Until the day I watched it I was sort of on the fence whether or not to watch it; I had the book on my wish-to-read but I heard from many people that the movie was a simplistic adaptation that doesn’t do the book justice (well, ranging from simplistic to downright not good). Anyway, I went ahead and watched it, with the plan to read the book shortly afterwards.
April 6th, 1917. As a regiment assembles to wage war deep in enemy territory, two soldiers are assigned to race against time and deliver a message that will stop 1,600 men from walking straight into a deadly trap.
I was hearing a lot about this movie in the latter half of last year, especially after its (surprise?) win at the Golden Globes earlier this year. I heard this movie was interesting in the way it was filmed so I decided to keep it in my radar. Got around to watching it in the theatres back in January shortly after I returned from my trip.
Yaaaaaaah, finally got to watch John Wick 3! I actually wanted to go back in May/June when it came out but no one wanted to come with. Anyway, I was going to get the movie on blu-ray anyhow and finally got around to watching it in September.
All right, finally got around to watching Captain Marvel! Like many, I wasn’t very familiar with her backstory until I heard that a movie was being made about her. So in between I did manage to read a comic about her and other adventures with the Avengers featuring her so by the time I watched this, I had a good idea of who the character was. May contain some SPOILERS ahead!
