Brad Pitt, Di Caprio, De Niro is my top 3. It helps that they almost always have great roles by default.

Then you have honorable mentions Clint Eastwood, Jet Li, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lawrence

Somehow i remember the Hollywood stars of my child/teenage years but fast like that cannot name a single actor younger than 30 hmm

Yea feels like there isn't anyone with great acting potential these days who can turn into megastar

Pattinson is a late bloomer but even he's 37.

Hollywood seems to be pushing Timothee Chalamet hard. His personality and stature also makes him prime to play androgynous roles, so think he will lead the new generation for the Gen Zs.

In terms of talent, my personal pick and hope is LaKeith Stanfield (31), but who knows how much soul selling he will need to do if he wants to make it to the very top.

Tye Sheridan (26) and Barry Keoghan (30) are also decent shouts.

I don't think any quote ever hit me harder than that. Well aside from Frank Drebin's "Like a midget on a urinal, I had to stay on top of my toes", those levels can not be reached.

I don't think he has range. Let's see in few years.

I saw the new Mission Impossible film yesterday. It was quite good overall, but not my favourite in the series.

Got to watch Oppenheimer first. I watch Barbie as late in the evening as possible in order to avoid a crowd of kids talking and shouting during the whole film.

Oppenheimer will be his best film yet. Ive decided on that a while ago. Thankfully he's moved past trash like Tenet dear god.

And I'd like to gently ask what is compelling the men in here to watch the Barbie film...Just curious lol

Oppenheimer 5 stars

I'm not gunna lie, for the first 30 minutes I was worried. I was thinking, "ah, here we go again, Nolan doubling down on his Dunkirk and Tenet antics of endless action, action, action from short scene to scene to scene". Barely allowing the audience to catch a breath in our very challenged age of short attention spans. But then something glorious happened. Unlike those two films, Oppenheimer caught a vibrant streamlined brooding magnetic focus which set up a 2nd act of extremely orgasmic cinematic proportions. Honest to God, that 2nd act might be the most masterful stretch of filmmaking put onto screen in a very, very long time. Certainly, it is Nolan in his finest form since the 3rd act of Inception. Now could the film have been mashed up a bit differently, a bit shorter so that that part would find itself at the end, and therefore in turn making the film more impactful and climactic, sure, definitely. And if that was the case, it probably could have ended up being Nolan's best film ever. But what is the point in being overcritical about that. In fact, I can't help but feel that the Nolans, Tarantinos and Scorseses of the cinematic world intentionally make 3-hour long films these days just to stick it to the general public and culture around film discourse these days.


Additionally, Oppenheimer sees Nolan finding enhancement in his filmmaking when I was concerned he was starting to hit his glass ceiling with his last two films. That advancement mainly comes in the form of Nolan incorporating a breathless touch of magical realism in this narrative. I've graduated enough in life to know that biopics can never even remotely be 5% as a matter of fact, and Nolan shows in this film that he is keenly aware of that reality as well. Thus, he treats this film with the most wonderful ambitious creativity in how he weaves together all of the political, ethical and psychological aspects around Oppenheimer's life and his invention. And somehow with all of that, I still feel like this is also his most grounded film ever. And now all of a sudden, I can't wait to see how the rest of his filmmaking career plays out. Also, I'm totally here for fuckboy Oppenheimer. What a stud.


Cillian Murphy is exactly the steady force that such a long running time calls for. I can fully understand if Robert Downey Jr truly believes this is the best film he has ever been in, and yes, I too truly love Zodiac like the rest of you. Matthew fucking Damon radiated acting magnificence in every scene he was in. The Rami Malek reveal was semi-hilarious. Olivia Thirlby shoutout. Emily Blunt was brilliantly hysterical. Florence Pugh was beyond hysterical. And of course, I would be utterly remiss not to mention the sound design. Often, the biggest complaint in Nolan's films, and here he and Ludwig Göransson create magic. Truly the sound design takes the film to another level. Lastly, shoutout to my two pairs of theatre mates who stuck it through the exhaustive narrative moments in order to bask in the awe of cinematic genius - true students of film. Cinema lives on!

Anybody watch Barbie?

I watched completed the Barbenheimer on saturday. Enjoyed Barbie more of the two, but thought they were both great.

The story for Barbie is a bit of a mess and they needed to cut some things out, but ultimately it was too funny and ridiculous for me not to have an absolute ball. Can't remember the last time I had that much fun in a theater tbh

Oppenheimer - 9.2

Absolutely incredible film. Highest I've rated a film since Free Solo (2018). Cillian Murphy should have the Oscar in the bag unless we see something insane till the end off the year. Best Nolan film since Inception.


Christopher Nolan Rankings:

Inception - 9.4
The Prestige - 9.2
Oppenheimer - 9.2
The Dark Knight - 8.9
Interstellar - 8.9
-
Memento - 8.5
Dunkirk - 8.4
Batman Begins - 8.4
Tenet - 8.3
The Dark Knight Rises - 8.2
Insomnia - 8.1

I think you might be the first person I've ever seen rank TDK as 3rd best of Nolan Batman trilogy.

There's a few of us out here in the internetsphere, just youtube The Dark Knight Rises video essays and read the comments as well. We understand the flawed significance of it. The Dark Knight is Nolan's most one-dimensional and "safe" film imo.

Actually really surprised to see you both rate Oppenheimer so highly.

I think it's one of his worst (perfectly aligns with his steady decline since interstellar).

Maybe I hate biopics but even then its hardly a great film.

I'll give my full thoughts later but it's probably a film I'll never see again.

TDKR is actually a masterpiece and i fully agree with you. There was a time I rated it higher than TDK too. But recent rewatches have elevated TDK again. All 3 in the trilogy are 9+/10 anyways

Rewatched mad max and mad max 2: the road warrior.

Can't believe what an absolute visionary George Miller was back in 1982. Incredible film. No idea how he pulled it all off with 0 cgi
