Sam Mendes's World War I movie, 1917, is one of the best war movies I have ever seen. And I am a HUGE war movie fan.
Shot in what looks like one continuous take, the movie grabs you from the start and immerses you in the story.
My wife falls asleep often in movies that don't work. She did not sleep during this entire movie. It was surreal, she said, to watch the story unfold this way.
You follow two young British soldiers — Schofield and Blake — as they go on an almost suicide mission: to get across No Man’s Land with a letter to save 1,600 men from a German ambush.
Blade Runner 2049's cinematographer, Roger Deakins, needs to win all kinds of awards for this.
There are stars like Colin Firth, Mark Strong, and Benedict Cumberbatch playing secondary characters in the film, but they are never used to outshine the story. Instead, you are made to care about the two men on an impossible mission, as you gape at the horrors of the First World War, the "The war to end all wars".
Go watch it in IMAX. It is not in 3D but that screen really works well for this movie.
This has to be one of the most fun projects I’ve had the privilege of working on this year. Downstairs is a new adult animated series by Robot Playground and Ervin Han (who also brought you the series Heartland Hubby, which I was also a part of).
It is really something to be working with so much comedic talent.
As we gave out presents to the kids at a minute past midnight, we got a surprise gift in return: this lovely painting from our youngest one.
Behind the painting, there were messages from Isaac and Joy for Mommy and me. And even a message from Faith. (Technically Joy helped her autistic Cheh Cheh to write that message but it was still sweet.)
Joy said her test of whether the paintings looked like her subjects was to ask her big sister questions like:
“Where is Papa?” Faith points to me.
“Where is Mommy?” Points to Mommy.
I tell you, the best presents are kids who love you and know you love them. Even if they drive you crazy sometimes, during the rest of the year.
May the Love and Peace that surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and minds this Christmas.
