Multiple people claiming that this is Nolans true masterpiece has me thinking the potential here is ENDLESS. It could be top 10 come oscar season still.


If it's in the top 10 by end of September that would be insane enough, let alone post-September.

Is all this positivity solely based on the few sanctioned comments made by Nolanites about an early screening? Have y'all learned nothing about modern film promotion? Of course, it's possible that Dunkirk is actually a good movie (I honestly hope it is, because I'm going to watch it regardless, and I don't want to waste my time on another bad Nolan misfire), but there's no way to tell yet based on the unreliability of the currently available information.

Stephanie Zacharek has hated every Nolan movie including TDK. She is praising Dunkirk. She said Dunkirk is Nolan's "only film" to her, meaning she has hated his other work that much. :funny:

Sasha Stone hated Interstellar and loves Dunkirk. Kris Tapley went from saying before he saw Dunkirk that he expected to rank it in the bottom half of Nolan's filmography to now saying after he actually saw it that it might be Nolan's masterpiece.

David Ehrlich said TDKR is worse than Batman & Robin. He claimed that the hype on Twitter for Dunkirk is underselling how good the film is.

I'm glad to hear that people who haven't liked Noland overrated flicks (Batman movies, Interstellar, The inception) liking this one. I still miss what Nolan promised with his best movie so far - Memento.

I would take The Prestige over Memento, but those are his best movies by a pretty good margin.

When I wrote my comment I originally included The Prestige. But then I realized Memento is by far the best Nolan movie IMHO and The Prestige doesn't quite come there for me. The thing that impresses me the most is that even if you watch the cut that plays in normal time (which is an option on DVD), it's still a great movie - so while the gimmick is certainly phenomenal (both in storytelling and editing) it's really not what makes the movie great.

But yes, those two are easily his strongest works.

It's got sequel written all over it - Styles' character turns out to be the young Princess Elizabeth bound for the throne.

Did I join before? If not, I'm definitely in. Thinking this is looking at a 6.0+ multiplier run.

This one is dangerously close to getting into overshoot territory. It will be a solid, well-reviewed film with good legs but it's still a WWII movie.

A 6.0 multiple would be just ASTOUNDING. Can't imagine any reason for the legs being that long. I'm pretty sure the last non Christmas/Oscar season wide release to have legs like that was Frozen.

Starting off with a 100 on metacritic after five reviews. It's definitely going to be the most critically well-received Nolan film to date.

edit: Still 100 with 10 reviews

Alonso Duralde's review of Interstellar was 50/100 on MC. Dunkirk? 100/100. If that is the kind of change in overall critical reception we are going to see, then there is a pretty good chance it's going above TDK's 82 on MC.

Holy shit.

Masterpiece and Nolans best ever seen to be general consensus.

I'm beginning to suspect this Christopher Nolan fella is gonna have a future.
