    Doesn't even truly and fully commit to its gimmick. I'd say it's okay as entertainment, my time wasn't wasted, but it's just so typical and soulless. Dunkirk is the real shit.

          I fucking hate movies that just ignore basic reality in order to artificially achieve some affect. The whole movie just screams fake and reminds you that it's a movie, especially when it tries to present some serious issue but it's present so fucking badly it's just cringe. The scene where they are rushing the wounded guy down the pier is a perfect example of this. It focuses on this event so hard, and is excessively long like nolan is just fucking jerking off over how super tense it is as they try to make it in time, while nobody on screen says a fucking single word. They don't call out, they don't tell people to get out of the way, nobody else calls out or says anything. So much of the movie is like this, where a simple problem could be solved by just something mundane and obvious but it's conveniently ignore. Then you have shit like the first fighter scene that was very poorly choreographed and and is just a disheveled mess of poorly edited scenes that provides no real sense of continuity or progression of whats happening.

            you typed a lot of words but those seem like pretty minor flaws, anon. your first point about them not yelling I'll grant but what was so bad about the dogfighting? you weren't very specific other than it was "bad"

              They aren't minor flaws, they're just indicative of the whole problem with the movie. Nolan is the ultimate fedora tipping pseud. It's just he just skimmed some shitty dummies guide for making movies and then threw in a bunch of ideas of his own. He obviously tries so hard but he has no fucking idea what he's doing when it comes down to the technical details of how to direct the actors to get the best out of them, or how to edit the scenes to get the proper pacing. There's so many scenes where they should've done another take or edited down because its excessively long. Honestly if you don't notice it up front, then you probably won't really understand, even with an explanation.

                Eh.. I mean I notice. But it's kind of his thing. He does as few takes as possible and turns in a movie ahead of schedule and under budget.
                His whole shtick is kind of "the bigger picture", lots of his movies don't hold up to close scrutiny, and a lot of technical details don't hold up. He's arguably taking inspiration from Kubrick, whose films were often similarly nonsensical, the difference being Kubrick was a much better filmmaker and so idiosyncratic it's hard to say the final product in his case wasn't completely intentional. Nolan's films on the other hand feel full of mistakes, and maybe they are, but II absolutely enjoy them for their style and usually pacing.

                You're criticisms aren't wrong but I still wouldn't say Dunkirk is a bad movie.

            Dunkirk intercuts personal perspectives of its main characters, anon. Of course it's focuses on different distressful details.

    I caught it on tv (with commercials lol)
    Really liked the ending scene with the brother, and that it ended with the same shot as the beginning. The rest was pretty cool.

    they even managed to push the obligatory morons and mutts into it.

    Watching it the first time was a bit trite.

    Can anyone explain why the downed, burned, and injured German pilot would attempt to murder the men who rescued him? As a pilot he would have been an officer so surrendering to the British would have been the best case scenario given his circumstance as they would have treated him relatively well. This was a war where cease fires were held so that both sides could deal with a mutual wolf attack problem.

      this scene really pissed me off, it went against everything a person in that situation would do and completely took me out of the movie for the rest of that scene
      soldiers in WWI often were friendly with one another in some circumstances because they all shared the same hell their nations put them through

      There really is literally no good explanation for this.
      he was injured and burnt and ver very clearly in enemy territory. You just cant justify trying to murder someone who pulled you out of a burning wreck

      Could just say he was disoriented and confused since he was just in a plane crash, probably not thinking straight and thought he was in danger. Wouldve been better if they had made it like that in the movie, more tragic.

      Because germans are inherently evil and bad. You should know that after watching 100s of war movies.

    And then there are films like Crimson Tide, you can watch them a thousand times, they never get old. What is the secret to a film's rewatch value?

    WOULD NEVER WATCH IT AGAIN.

    And I love war movies.

    Also, why didn’t they just have one of those bi-planes land by the stranded unit and deliver the message to stop the attack??? The sending just two guys thing was retarded.

    I really only liked the part where they discover the German autist caves which were furnished and comfy compared to theirs. The rest was indeed trite. I didn't like how he injured his hand and then it's not referenced again and has zero relevance to the plot. The scene where he approaches the sniper's nest in the house felt like I was watching video gameplay. It was titillating but ultimately distracting. The "single-take" effect was grating, but not in a way that represented the monotony of war, as they spent a majority of the screentime away from the trenches and no-man's land. It just seemed to sacrifice pacing for no good reason.
    Finally the last scene where he goes over the top to deliver the message felt forced. Trying too hard to be poetic, and awe inspiring. Felt more like a capeshit ending, I felt no real emotional stakes (obviously he's not going to get blown up the way they presented the scene)

    It was fine, and maybe if I still had cable I'd watch it when it inevitably ends up on FXX or whatever channel, but I won't be going out of my way to see it again. Paths of Glory did literally every aspect of it better.
