    Discussion with Neil Degrasse Tyson and Brian Greene about Oppenheimer and the accuracies of the film. They thought it was pretty accurate.

    Christopher Nolan says to buy Oppenheimer on Blu-Ray so "no evil streaming service can come steal it from you." https://variety.com/2023/film/news/christopher-nolan-buy-oppenheimer-blu-ray-evil-streamers-1235790376/

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    Nolan is one of a very small group of directors who can get an audience just because they directed it. The only other director I would definitively put in that group in this moment is Tarantino.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    Dunkirk, Tenet, and Oppenheimer all played at 2.2:1 on my regular 4k digital screenings of them. It is possible that some theaters cropped them to 2.39:1.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    There hasn't been 2.39 footage in nolan films starting with Dunkirk when the non IMAX 70mm footage was shot in standard 70mm. The 70mm framing of 2.2:1 has been the standard release format. The digital IMAX footage switches between 2.2:1 and 1.9:1.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    These days 4k digital projection probably is better than normal 70mm projection as long as the digital projection is properly set up. That last part is the hard part, most theaters probably don't set them up correctly leading to darkness issues and focus problems.

    Another great hold this weekend.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    Of course the vast majority of IMAX installations aren't 15/70 or dual 4k laser 1.43:1. Today when you say something is in IMAX most people will think they are seeing a dual Xenon system on a 1.9:1 screen.

    I loved it in the 2.2:1 framing on 4K DCP. As long as you go to a theater with good projection standards you should be fine.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    This is probably the Nolan film that least requires seeing it in IMAX.

    I just watched a review from a critic who saw the film at your location at a press screening and she said that the print was terrible. Lots of debris.

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    I just got back from a great 4KDCP screening. Picture was excellent and the sound mix was good for Nolan. I would place this 2nd for me this year. 1. Air 2. Oppenheimer 3. Spider-Verse 4. Mission Impossible 5. Asteroid City

    Oppenheimer (2023)

    I'm going to a standard screen in my local arthouse. My local IMAX (Not even 1.44:1) is 95% sold out this weekend and there are no seats available I am willing to sit in. I might try to see it in IMAX mid next week.

    Expect more Nolan sound mix issues. I saw a review that had sound issues listed in the title.

    Maybe the platters for the documentaries are lighter than those for feature films.
