Just saw it this afternoon.  Pure Excellence.  Still digesting.  It was engrossing from start to finish. 

Robert Downey Jr and Cillian Murphy will surely be nominated for Oscars. 

Emily Blunt a strong contender in supporting actress.

Oppenheimer has been on my radar for a while now. Im keen to see it. Im also keen to see Killers Of The Flower Moon. Hopefully, the local arts and entertainment venue, 10 mins walk along the river from my home, will be showing both. Im sure they will.

Saw the previews for Oppenheimer the other day and it looks really good.  Been a fan of Cillian Murphy since the Peaky Blinders series.

Prior to this week i had not been to a theater since The Meg in 2018.

Pros of the film:

The acting is excellent. Not a weak performance in sight.
The script is excellent. Great character development.
Itís really well filmed.

Cons of the film:
Itís waaaaaay too long.
The trinity test sequence, where the bomb explodes - arguably the films centrepiece - is a bit of a let down. I wanted to feel the destructive power of the thing and didnít.

Overall: itís definitely worth seeing. Iím a big fan of nuclear weapons and have read shitloads about their development.

Note: if you want to see a truly devastating movie about nuclear war watch ĎThreadsí. Hollywood attempted something similar with ĎThe Day Afterí which was shit. Threads, however, will haunt you forever.

Nolan tried to not use CGI at all.  Thatís why Trinity feels flat.  I felt the same way.
