    I went and saw 1917 on Sunday and my god was I impressed. Sam Mendes did a phenomenal job with this film. The camera work is incredible, to say the least, and I think is the focal point of the film. Combined with the lack of combat scenes (which I think was more or less intentional) it keeps the viewer always focused with the scenery and the world in which we are taken through with the main characters. In my opinion I think Mendes set out to portray the nature of the First World War from an aesthetic point of view and he certainly achieved that in this film with the unique cinematography. I think Mendes' decision to cast actors who aren't widely known helps the viewers relate more towards the characters since the characters are more likely to come off as ordinary people; Tom Hanks could've been the lead role and everyone would've been thinking "Oh it's Tom Hanks in World War I. Ha." So the characters definitely feel real in this sense. Just to bounce back to the cinematography real quick, the scenery in this film is breathtaking. Very beautiful shots throughout the course of the film. I feel like the movie would've been equally as good without much music (ever since I saw Steven Spielberg say in an interview that he intentionally didn't want to have much music for Saving Private Ryan in order to make it feel more realistic, I always think about how a war film would fare with more or less music in scenes), but whenever there was music it certainly did not disappoint. Hats off to Thomas Newman for a solid score. The plot is apparently based in part off of stories Mendes heard from his grandfather (who served in the British Army during the First World War) and while it would seem a bit unlikely - I mean who would send two men deep behind enemy territory in order to send a message to a friendly unit somewhere on the opposite side of the line? - I thought it was nonetheless executed pretty well. I enjoyed the journey Mendes took me on. Overall 1917 is an incredible film and I was absolutely glued to the screen the entire time. 11/10 for sure, I definitely recommend you go and see it if you haven't already. You WILL NOT be disappointed. What does anyone else think? (For those of you who have seen it)

    You used the Carbine on Dome? Man you've got some balls my guy. I do well with the Carbine on a good day but I couldn't get nearly that many on a map like Dome. I need some breathing room if I'm gonna use a semi-automatic, even if the M1 has a fire rate like an SMG if you click fast enough. Yeah you and everyone else were -__- What? Do you normally abstain courteously from Dome? Lol

    @SockItToYa stole my thunder (And of course I choked in the finally two minutes and couldn't get two simple kills -_-)
  5. Mine is simply Nicktator
  6. I couldn't find it when I searched for it. I'm level 22 by the way.
  7. Enjoying this game so far

    Yeah I was doing quite well myself hehe
  9. Thoughts on Call of Duty: Mobile? So this morning I found out there was a new game on the app store called Call of Duty: Mobile. Naturally I had to try it. So far I'm loving it! It's very addictive lol. I haven't spent much time exploring it in detail since I have school work to do, but from what I've observed so far apparently there's in-game currency, premium stuff, and some sort of game pass (maybe the same thing as a season pass? Who knows). As far as gameplay is concerned it runs pretty smoothly (I have an iPhone 6s). It doesn't crash and the controls are very easy to get used to. There's a mode call "Frontline" and then there's your basic team deathmatch. I don't know if there are any other modes. I think the game is supposed to be pretty much a bunch of major CoDs wrapped into one. I don't know how many maps there are, but so far I've only played on three: Nuketown, Killhouse, and one other (I forget the name but it looks like something out of BO3 or one of the "warfare" titles, idk). Overall I'm enjoying this game so far. Has anyone else heard about it or considered getting it? (It's free btw)

    Honestly for me the biggest plus is that they’re basic servers. So many servers on older Call of Dutys are modded, and what’s a shame about that is that those servers comprise the majority of populated servers on those games. It’s so hard to find a core server with players. I’m glad PDE provides that.

    Thanks my man! Hold things down while I'm away

    Hehe thanks Zuko. Don't know about that last part but we'll see 😂

    Well as the title would suggest I'm going off to school today. While I've been in college for three years now this will be the first time in which I'm living away from home, so I'm really excited but also nervous. Unfortunately there's no way I'll be able to play video games while I'm living on campus (bummer lol), which means I'll be on a hiatus for most of the next three months. When I can I'll pop in once in a blue moon when I come home on a weekend or something. That being said I'll still check in on the forums just to keep in touch and see how things are going, so I won't be completely quiet. I'll see you guys full-time in December!
  14. I can't remember if it was him or not, but a few months ago I remember seeing a post on here about this one dude who would place a betty by a teammate, then switch teams. Doing so would trigger the betty, kill the former teammate, and give the guy a kill. It was a really shitty move and I think he might've gotten temp banned for it. But that and Kilroy are just two examples of scum players/playstyles, and shouldn't define the betty community as a whole!
