World War One-der

Last night I watched the movie “Journey’s End”, about soldiers during WWI waiting for an impending German attack. I always think of films about WWI more as curiosities than anything… I guess most of the war films I’m familiar with are set during WWII. I can’t really think of any film that’s the WWI equivalent of “Saving Private Ryan”, for example, and other than “Journey’s End” the only WWI films I can recall seeing off the top of my head are “Wings” and “Paths of Glory”.

Speaking of “Wings”, the other day I told Siri to turn on my bedroom lamp and her response was “All set”, so of course I had to reply “OK!”

…if you’ve seen “Wings” you’d have gotten that reference. Maybe.
