Just came back from Dunkirk, agreed with RG. This is probably Nolan's worst film, the movie felt very pretentious at times. But thats the least of my concern, like most, i had an extremely hard time hearing the dialogue, but that is usually forgiven if the music is amazing. It wasn't in this one, not for me at least.

Also, i hope Nolan steers clear from realism and real life stuff, his movie are best when there are element of fiction or sci fi in it.

6/10

Saw Atomic Blonde yesterday. Pretty fun movie.

Definitely more a female Bond (Craig) than a female John Wick. Fight scenes were brutal and well executed, easily the highlight on the movie. Story was a poor man's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy though and the dialogue was largely average, though a bit clunky. The cinematography of 1989 East/West Berlin was quite good though and the music was expectedly good as well.

Charlize's menacing demeanor from Fate of the Furious definitely carried over into this, but unfortunately the lines didn't. Oh and Sofia Boutella is just not a good actress for me. Have yet to be impressed in anything she's done so far.

So went to see Dunkirk with a friend tonight, just as the movie is about to start the screen goes blank.

Apparently there was some issue that affected all theatres at this cinema.

And yeahhhhhh. They were totally incompetent. Couldn't give us a declaration of what went wrong. Only gave us the option of a complimentary ticket. Or waiting until the next showing and hoping the issue would be resolved.

But fck it, we left. One more day gone without watching it.

Finally watched Silence. I don't know why this movie flopped, it was really good. Didn't enjoy it much as The Wolf Of Wall Street but Scorsese is still very much in form. Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver were amazing in it, as were all the Japanese actors. Very heavy movie, felt depressed after it ended.

So here you go, lads.

Dunkirk:
Unlike the typical war film, Dunkirk shies away from explicit violence and evil. Yes, people get shot at, bombs get dropped, but about the only blood which we see is that of an innocent man on a boat on his way to Dunkirk to aid in the rescue mission, and that happens to be a couple of millimetres of blood either way. We do not get to see the faces of the enemy (Nazi Germany) at all. They're represented by fighter planes, and their threat is heighted by Hans Zimmer's score.


So then, on to the much debated Hans Zimmer score for this film. Like I said, it does its job, and it's Hans Zimmer, come on, so it fulfils its purpose. But I do empathise with those that have brought up the complaint of Nolan and Zimmer's collaborations audibly having a certain one-dimensional style to it. However, it still remains one of the better aspects of the film. And as for the best aspect, that is undeniably the cinematography. It is superb, flawless and surprisingly strikingly dark in its colour. The blue-greyish overcast days bring out the strong black colours as well as the beige sand of the beach and sea foam, while the sunny days bring out the rich blue of the waters and there's a montage at the end where we get to see some spectacular oranges given off by the sun and fire. This sort of photography is what most of my amateur photography looks like, to be honest, it reminded me of a photograph I took a while back, and if you're curious to check that out, ask for my Instagram name, I might put it up there soon. Another big plus for the film is Tom Hardy's eyes. Man, those eyes can out-act most other performers out there in the world. Watch the film, and you'll see what I mean, in fact, I'm sure you heard that Dunkirk does not have that much dialogue. Which brings me to that point, because I actually thought there was a decent amount of dialogue present. I honestly expected a lot less considering how most people made a point out of the "minimal" talking in the film.


Which... wait for it, then brings me to my drawbacks for this film. Can we just put it out there. This is one of Nolan's less impactful films. I don't know where all these 100%s and 10 out of 10s and five stars come from. Maybe it has its sweet spot with the British audience, but I truly believe this is more of an IMAX show-off and war/soldier pride film than actually being a great overall film. The story is simple. The characters are simple. Tom Hardy brings some extra courageous meaning to his character's patriotism, and that's about it. Kenneth Branagh was over-dramatic, Mark Rylance was robotic and Cillian Murphy's character was misunderstood on a writing, psychological and humanistic level. Harry Styles is somewhat decent actually, but still I question Nolan's politics toward pop culture and his awareness of it, even after he found out who Harry Styles actually is. Overall, after finishing Dunkirk it feels like a passion project for the man himself, Nolan. Additionally, I feel that there wasn't really a lot of artistry and creativity within the filmmaking, however, I do appreciate the lengths and technical mastery which Nolan's visual crew always strive towards. But the lack of real emotion and heart (the basis of most of Nolan's films) and the lack of a fully-fleshed story that features both sides of the coin, makes Dunkirk somewhat of a disappointment in my eyes. And to put the dagger into the heart of Nolansphere out there, most of the extras had no sense of authenticity to their portrayals and the movement and action felt like a stageplay rehearsal on too many occasions to pass on forgiveness toward it.

3.5/5

Freeza, what are your thoughts on it again?

The Dark Tower

Saw this yesterday and I just can't buy that it's a sequel. That now seems like a convenient excuse to disguise the displeasure book readers like me have with turning such an epic, terrifying and touching story into a generic action flick cash grab. That's exactly what this was and it was mediocre even as that.

Regarding Idris' performance, he did well in patches as Roland, capturing the character's, grim taciturn, yet curious nature. That said, Roland was also quite a wistful, tragic character and that I didn't get from him. McConaughey's Walter was entertaining as expected and carried much of the best scenes and dialogue on his own, portraying the MIB's macabre sense of humor and delightfully terrifying demeanor well. Tom Taylor did well as Jake and should there be a sequel, can likely bring more range to the character that I know from the books.

It was super challenging to separate this film from the books it's based on, but it's possible. I just wish they had not tried to spin this as something it very clearly isn't. This was a reimagining and amalgamation of the book series full stop.

I now have all of my hopes pinned that the TV series does this universe better justice, but after seeing this, I won't hold my breath.

Most are saying the same thing, honestly thinking of not going to watch it, its sad that it had to turn out like this

I still think if they make Wizard and Glass into some form of visual media, be it TV or extended mini series, it would be one of the best book-to-media adaptations ever. That whole book is fantastic from start to end.
