  1. Never thought the history particularly mattered very much in those films. But what I do like to hear/see is a filmmaker present thoughts of some sort on the matter.
  2. Dunkirk isn't really a historical film, nor does it pretend to be one. It's essentially a thriller set in a chapter of history. Much like Gravity is just a thriller set in space. Having established those ground rules from the start is what makes Dunkirk work as it does. I've never felt a pacing problem with Inception. Whether you like it or not, it's a very smooth film. Interstellar on the other hand, could definitely use some trimming.
  3. Yea, regardless of Nolan's faults, he is one of the precious few major film-makers who gets to do his own thing at that scale. And that should be only encouraged. Just wish he'd really challenge himself out of his comfort zone a little bit.
  4. Nah. It might have been the best opportunity to break formula in his career (given the source material), but it ends up being his most Nolan-ized film yet. Nolan mechanics are written all over the work, almost to a fault, I might even argue.
  5. For me, it sort of plays like Gravity. A roller-coaster that aims for the thrills of the moment, but doesn't present much reason to come back. It makes a fine 2 hour ride in the cinema, but I don't think there's much else underneath.
  6. Funny. I always suspected it'd be the other way around.
  7. All the time. I've been on a film music break for a few months now. I'd go crazy if Williams was all I listened to, just as with any one musician/composer.

    I have faith in Tarantino!

    Favorite movie to feature Bryce Dallas Howard?

    She's not in very many good films. But I liked her in Black Mirror.

    I'm sure that's quite deliberate.
  12. I think that's the most poetic I've seen you describe a modern film score...I want whatever you're having!
  13. Pattison's a good actor. He's been doing good stuff in his post-Twilight fame.
  14. Indeed. It's much more subtle and relies more on ambiance than you might expect. But it's strange in many different ways. And pretty horrifying by the time you get to the end. It is rough around the edges though, and too long. Still, good film.
