Am I the only one who thought it looked shit?
I will go and see it purely because of the reviews but I thought the advert looked like every war film ever.
I also hated the trailer. Soldiers leaping out of trenches and running onto grass.
However, when you actually see the film you get the context. The long established static lines, which the two protagonists advance through during much of the of the film show the realism (or what I have always considered it to have been) of trench warfare. The more forward lines in the later part of the film, which have been recently dug due to the Germans' resetting of their defensive line, allowed me to change my view of the trailer's authenticity.
I'm going to watch this today - 12noon, Rochdale Odeon. The rest of yer can fuck off and watch it somewhere else!
The Odeon used to be at the top of Drake street and as kids we abandoned razors for a full month to blag our way in to see the Exorcist. William never had the budget the luvie directors have today or that CGI and the way they made Linda Blair's head spin and projectile vomit was a defining moment in the horror film genre and I still have disturbed sleep patterns to this day.
