The Beardict: 8.75 out of 10. Without a doubt, 1917 is one of the most unique and suspenseful films I’ve ever watched. I now fully understand why it was nominated for a whopping 10 Oscars. If it doesn’t win Best Picture, then it’s at least going to win Best Cinematography, Sound Mixing, and Sound Editing. 1917 was able to transport the audience to the harsh conditions of World War I, and it didn’t even need 3D to do it.
The Beardict: As a full-on musical biopic, Rocketman takes off with the right combination of substance and flamboyance. It is a beautiful explosion of music that reminds us why we listen to songs in the first place. If you were not an Elton John fan before, you would be now!
