I’m not surprised at all. Everybody I know is talking about “1917,” and a bunch of people I know have already seen it.

The word of mouth surrounding this movie is absolutely epic. For those of us who have seen it, I haven’t heard from a single person who didn’t like it.

I think it’s one of the best war movies ever made, and I’ve seen just about all of them.

As more and more people see the movie, the word about it will only spread further. Add in the fact it’s going to clean up the award season, and everything is falling in line.

The numbers for “1917” are only going to continue to go up as more and more time passes.
