Dunkirk

I searched for a thread on this movie but I didn't find one. Do we still do movie threads? Whatever. I'm doing one! This movie looks incredible. Nolan movies are always a must see for me and this one looks like it could win all the oscars.

It comes out next month and I'll probably see it opening night.

of special note when you see this movie, please pay special attention to the fact that it's filled with Practical Effects. it can be clearly seen in the trailer... superb!

Re: Dunkirk

Tragically I'm old enough to remember the filming of Battle of Britain in the skies over my head in Hertfordshire in summer 1968. We lived not far from one of the airfields used by the producers' private air force (which was larger than many national air forces at the time).

Once my mum was pegging out washing in the back garden and sixteen Me109s (strictly Spanish licence-built Hispano Buchons, flown by actual Spanish fighter pilots, but in Nazi markings), thundered over at about 50 feet. That was a Practical Effect all right. My mum ducked. On the other hand my brother's big black rabbit Mungo, hopping round the lawn, just looked at the things and went back to nibbling grass, not bothered.

I think they only used a handful of real planes for Dunkirk, but you can't argue with Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance. I hope it turns out OK.

Reminds me of one of my favorite youtubes:

Re: Dunkirk

So it's yet another movie where Tom Hardy has most of his face covered?
