I was only going to talk about this movie in the historical movies thread, but I have a feeling that it deserves a thread of its own.



This is the movie I've been looking forward to above all others this summer. I really like Christopher Nolan and I'm interested in seeing how he handles this historical film.

I will watch it too. As a WWII history nerd I have no choice, and I like that it's a story that has been somewhat forgotten.

I hope it's as good as critics say.  I hated Nolan's last two movies and he's not the cinematic 2nd coming of Christ his fanboys make him out to be.

They did an interesting program on The Weather Channel about it one time, part of their series called When Weather Made History.  I'm not sure what the weather will be like in the movie, but what I remember from the Weather Channel show was that winds were very low across the English Channel for several days, nearly calm, which allowed the used of small boats that would have been swamped by larger winds and waves.   It was a very cool program- I hope the movie is as good!  (Even with Harry Styles ??!!?? )

I actually really liked his last film, Interstellar so I'm excited for this one. I'm going to try to see it sometime next week in IMAX

I'm looking forward to it as well. I really like the way BFG sounds when he talks. Cool accent.

It hasn't been released yet.

Do you have some kind of access to the dark net that enables you to see movies before their release date? :ph34r:

Nothing but stellar reviews by the top critics so far on Rotten Tomatoes.

Exactly. Can't go into it over-hyped.

I need to support a few films the next few weeks but increasingly have less patience with audiences these days. Dunkirk is one such film.

I hear you. I love to go to the movies so I try not to let things bother me too much, but there are some things I really hate. Since I worked at a movie theater as a teen, I have no problem telling someone to be quiet or to turn their bright smartphone off.  Even with all of that, I still love going to see movies in a big theater.

Kids being brought to hard r movies is the worst.  A stupid couple brought their baby to see Sicario at a showing I went to.  Wait until Epix or hire a sitter, damnit!

Great movie, though.

Parents taking children to see movies that are inappropriate for their (the kids') age is one of my pet peeves. I see young parents do this a lot.
