I loved the sound of the Stukas, they struck fear into the opposing enemy troops and was designed intentionally by the Germans to do just that.

Loved that line towards the end of the movie with the old man handing out blankets

Just saw it. It's one of those films you should experience in the theater.

70mm was cool to see but I'm not going out of my way for it again. Wish I went to imax now. As a whole the movie was just ok for me.

Yeah, I was underwhelmed as well. Silly me, expecting Nolan might tell a coherent linear story when doing a war movie about documented historical events, but he still managed to turn it in into a one of his signature disjointed messes. It's his nature, I guess. Expecting otherwise was apparently like expecting Jack the Ripper not to carve up his victims. Most people seem to like this - I don't.

I mean, it had rock solid components - the battle scenes were amazing, the acting was first rate, it was beautifully shot. I just wish he hadn't thrown it all in a blender.

Still it came together well at the end, which mostly made up for it. And it was worth paying for/seeing in the theater.

I was on my phone earlier so I didn't want to expand much. The problem with the way Nolan tells this story just drives me nuts. I don't really get to know an of the characters so I never feel attached. When I'm not attached I, more or less, just don't care. I honestly found myself wondering when the movie would end. It was definitely the longest 2 hours I have experienced in a movie. The battle scenes were great and the acting was good. I just really want to care about the characters and I just couldn't get there with this movie.

I'm also going to say that its time to let film die. While I appreciated the nostalgic trip into my movie going past, I was longing for the crispness and high detail that todays cinema provides. The film grain actually took me out of the movie at times because I'm thinking, hey, I remember when movies were always like this. It was almost a distraction for me.

Overall this was just an average experience for me. When it was all said and done, I actually liked Interstellar better overall, even though I hated the last 30 minutes of that movie. Again, I'm not saying this movie is bad, It just didn't speak to me.

Caught the 2:30 matinee today, been examining my thoughts on it ever since

Its such a beautifully shot movie, so many wide, lingering panoramics, and authentic looking scene after big scene

But the story felt incomplete, it was somehow lost in translation by skipping around the 3 different perspectives so frequently... ambitious and beautiful to look at, but flawed

My first instinct is that I didn't like it as much as Inception or Interstellar. It was a solid movie... I don't mind the disjointed storylines, I usually like how Nolan weaves them together. The way he decided to tell this story, I think he could've shown the scale of this operation a bit better. If you're going to go with the three focused storylines I think I'd rather he developed the characters in them a bit more.

Probably the loudest experience I've ever had in a theater. The sound was incredible. I'm sure some people probably hated it but I think it should be the Oscars front runner for sound design and sound mixing. Every battle scene was intense. You felt like you were in the same room as the weapons being fired.

Regarding the sound. I'm wondering if that was completely dependent upon which format you watch it in. I watched in 70mm and very disappointed with the sound. Never really seemed that loud to me.

I really don't get it. I'm a history buff who minored in history in college because there's no jobs for a history major. I love the story and thought this could be a great movie focusing on a little known but crucial event in the war.

Not only was I underwhelmed but this was, in my opinion, one of the worst movies I've ever seen in theaters (I try to only go to movies in theaters when I'm really interested in them).

Visually, it was great. But, I never felt like the immense scale of a 300,000 man evacuation was evident. The story was disjointed and I felt no personal connection to any of the characters. Even the kid in the boat elicited no response. The events were repetitive, partly because it was showing the same event from different viewpoints but also because the same guy kept seeming to be in the middle of 17 different sinking boats. Overall, I have never been more disappointed at the end of a movie.

Additionally, when I turned to my wife (who isn't a history nerd like me) at the end of the movie and said, "Well, that was pretty terrible." she replied with relief that it wasn't just her. It took a rather incredible event and made it boring and reductive.
