    Oppenheimer (2023)

    Agreed, he could have chosen to call it Trinity and widened the narrative. I think a bit more balance would have made it more rewarding, the enormous challenge and consequences seem to take a backseat to the perils of communism which were treated in a heavy handed way with much time taken up in...

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    This was the big letdown for me also. The movie was essentially a character study of Oppenheimer but I was hoping for more science and engineering to balance.the politics. I think overall I was expecting a 'big' film to capture this huge event in human history rather than the 'are you or have...

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    I liked it but I didn't love it and it was a half hour too long. I wanted more of the technical and engineering process with making the bomb and a bit less of the politics. It's Murphy's film and I thought he was quite wonderful.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    Oppenheimer looks like a big film deserving of such an epochal event, focussing on Robert Oppenheimer who was supported by thousands of physicists and engineers. This is why I was disappointed by First Man, Neil Armstrong was the focus of the Apollo project but Chazelle made a small film about...

    Nolan plows his own furrow, he will give us scale and spectacle, and hopefully avoid some of the ropey CGI we have seen recently.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    I hadn't realised until recently that Nolan is shooting in b & w. Presumably he will move to colour when the bomb ignites to show that the world has irrevocably changed.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    Great cast, I hope (if he's well) there is a small part for Michael Caine, the best 'Alfred'.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    Nolan references Oppenheimer in Tenet. Pandora's Box would be a good title for the film.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    I hope Nolan films the whole movie in IMAX.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    Really looking forward to this, I would like to know what in particular attracted Nolan to this project.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    Chris Nolan is the only director working today guaranteed to get me into a cinema.
