It has been three days since I saw Dunkirk and I cannot stop thinking about it. That alone should be enough to tell you that the movie is great and that you should see it, so if an affirmation that it is worth seeing is what you are looking for you can stop reading now. Let me say this clearly and concisely right up front: Dunkirk is Christopher Nolan’s best film to date and you should absolutely seek it out on the biggest screen you can find.

Quick Review: Interstellar

Interstellar

Interstellar is probably the most ambitious film I’ve seen all year. It aims high in terms of scientific accuracy, storytelling, and cinematic scope, and it very nearly succeeds. But not quite. That’s not to say it’s a bad movie, but I was hoping for a great movie and this is just a good one.

Interstellar

WE still don’t 100% know what Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is really about (saving the world?) and this trailer doesn’t feature much in the way of new footage but on the other hand all the footage is amazing and you get to hear Michael Caine read Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night so just watch it already because that’s awesome.

Watch This: [the films of] Series by Kees van Dijkhuizen Jr

[the films of]

It’s come to my attention that many of you haven’t seen the [the films of] series of videos I mentioned yesterday when I posted about the Insight: Derek Cianfrance video. This is something that needs to be corrected, so here is a playlist of the entire series.

Released over the course of 2011 each video profiles a different director and manages to distill that directors voice into something pretty special. The entire playlist is around 35 minutes long so set aside some time and watch the whole thing. It’s pretty amazing.

Awesome: Batman vs Superman Is Happening

News / 2 Comments

In his packed San Diego Comic Con panel, Man Of Steel director Zack Snider brought the house down this afternoon by announcing that the MOS sequel will feature Batman. Here’s the symbol that got the crowds going:

BatsSupes As if that were not enough, he then brought out actor Harry Lennix to read out the following lines:

I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years to come…in your most private moments…I want you to remember…my hand…at your throat…I want…you to remember…the one man who beat you.

In Frank Miller’s amazing graphic novel Dark Knight Returns, Batman has an epic fight against Superman and the above speech is from the final moments. It’s considered one of the standout stories in both franchises, so this could be very exciting indeed.

Man of Steel Trailer Gives Me A Nerdgasm

Trailers / Comments Off on Man of Steel Trailer Gives Me A Nerdgasm

Man of Steel

Wow, between Star Trek and this it’s turned out to be a pretty damn good day for us nerds.

So let me be the millionth person to say this: this looks like it might be really fucking good. Everything from the tone to the scope of the plot to the performances to the look of things, this looks like it might be really fucking good and I hope that it is.

Second, I kind of feel sorry for Zack Snyder if it does because while he’s made a couple of crap movies but he’s also made a couple of good movies and if this turns out to be good people are going to say “well that’s because Nolan was involved”. Now, Nolan being involved certainly couldn’t hurt, but he also didn’t direct or style this.

Third, I mean just look at it. It looks gorgeous.

What do you guys think??
