Movie Review: ‘Dunkirk’

July 21, 2017 at 7:22 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | 1 Comment

Dunkirk had a lot going for it – a great director, good actors and a big budget. Unfortunately, it didn’t have a good story, or at least a cohesive narrative. If there’s one thing that really sums up what is wrong with this film, it’s editing.

Going into this movie, I had pretty low expectations. While I’m a fan of Christopher Nolan’s work as a director, the trailers for Dunkirk never sold me on the film. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge World War II history buff, but Dunkirk isn’t exactly one of the most exciting battles of the war. So I knew the story was going to be an uphill climb to try and sell this battle as something gripping and exciting. Visually the film looks great. The acting is top notch. Truly, the flaw with this film is the story and the editing. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Dunkirk’…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 80 starts off with the news, the George Lucas museum approval, autograph issue, D23, and Forces of Destiny. Then they discuss the game Rebel Assault 2 which leads to a very fun discussion. Great episode.

Blast Points: Episode 82 covers the D23 news on Star Wars land, then they digest the behind the scenes sizzler trailer for The Last Jedi. There’s lots of Star Wars love in this discussion, and a little lunacy as they go crazy for the new aliens, lobsters and sizzler references. Great episode.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 75 features guest hosts Randy Therio and Jay Krebs as they talk teaching with Star Wars and Forces of Destiny. Jason Ward also joins them to weigh in on the Forces of Destiny discussion. They also talk about the Star Wars card game and table top games with Tom, and SDCC Star Wars exclusives. Capping the episode off, Dan has some audio from a conversation he had with Jason and Jimmy Mac at Star Wars Celebration. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
