  1. I've only ever seen the first two. By the trailer alone, this film doesn't seem like that will change any time soon.

    Alan Menken's ALADDIN (2019)

    Just found out the kid who's starring as Aladdin in this actually comes from my hometown. He went to a high school about 5 minutes away from my own. Film looks awful though.
  4. Lol at Clooney getting all excited about getting to rag on Malick. And yea, it's very tempting for every average maverick to over-analyze/over-intellectualize every passing Malick shot. But when one chooses to give in to Malick's poetry, there is actually a lot emotional power to his best films.
  5. Indeed. Dunkirk screams thriller far more than it does documentary. Not your conventional thriller, sure, but a Nolan one, yes.
  6. What croc said. Historical films are films with a focus on real historical narrative and real historical characters. These films often play like history lessons packed into an entertainment module. Dunkirk has different intentions. Anyway, we're arguing semantics.
  7. I'm not putting its accuracy to question. I'm saying its motivations are ultimately less tied to emulating history (as most historical films are) than it is to creating the particular cinematic experience Nolan was after. I don't know where the silly idea came from that I didn't think Dunkirk was associated with history...
  8. Ah yes. That is something to look forward to. So Zimmer's finally picked the Kanadian over Nolan eh?
  9. Lol. You clearly missed my point. But I don't know how much clearer that original post could have been, so I'll just re-quote the whole thing for you? It's been discussed to death here, especially on my end. But to sum it up for your convenience: everything from how it's triptych structure plays with time and pacing (this time with a literal ticking clock, no less!), to how it aims to overwhelm with spectacle, to its typical (and now cliche) "emotional" third-act wrap-up screams quintessential Nolan. Just because there isn't much dialogue this time, doesn't make it any less Nolan... It's a fine film. I don't have much reason to revisit it though.
  10. That's huge. Curious how that happened, but I'm happy for Goransson. Shame though, because without Nolan in the mix, there isn't much to look forward to creatively with Zimmer's future output.

    Just stumbled onto this proposal letter that apparently outlined Martin's original intentions with the books when he was looking for a publisher. This might have been posted here already, but sharing it anyway. He basically suggests that Jon, Arya, Bran, Daenerys and Tyrion would survive throughout the series, and that Jon, Arya and Tyrion would have been involved in some sort of love triangle... https://www.insider.com/game-of-thrones-original-story-2017-8
  13. It also appears to have no session numbers in the title. So whatever they're recording wouldn't have been for any particular scene for the new film. It's entirely possible they could have just done a session of classic SW repertoire for a publicity session (photos/interview/DVD commentary/etc etc).
