Five WWII Movies to See Before 'Dunkirk'

24 July, 2017, 20:07 | Author: Laverne Higgins

That being said, I expected a lot more action in what was being sold in the trailers as a "war film". Watching the movie, I can totally understand why people are enjoying this movie.

Interstellar director Christopher Nolan is back with another gripping tale. Tommy (Fionn Whithead) as the young soldier lad and Alex (Harry Styles) also manage to hold their scenes quite well. "Dunkirk" from Time Warner Inc.'s (NYSE: TWX) Warner Bros. studio is touted for an opening weekend take of $45 million to $55 million while STX Entertainment's "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" looks to bring in receipts in the low $20 million range. I haven't been a fan of his entire work series, but I loved his "Dark Knight" Trilogy and I'll even defend "The Dark Knight Rises", and my god "Inception" was a non stop thrill ride.

Nolan makes you relive the horrors of World War II through his powerful direction and equally compelling cast. All told with sound (Hans Zimmer and his team definitely save their best stuff for Nolan) and visuals (via cinematographer Hoyte Von Hoytema) that wring every last dollar from the giant budgets Nolan commands, Dunkirk is easily this year's front runner for "see it on the largest screen you can find". The Dunkirk map pack is part of the latest update for the game, which went live on July 21st ahead of the release of the Dunkirk film. They were bland and kind of just soldier figures, which - was kind of the point. "Any tension I felt personally helped the character".

When we talk about world war movies, the list is endless which includes movies like Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan, Hacksaw Ridge, Enemy at the Gates, to name just a few.

There was the unusual sight of a US attorney speaking from the White House press room. And that has a lot of DOJ alums from both sides of the aisle anxious .

Much of the movie was shot on the same beach where the real evacuations took place, in similar inclement weather.

There is no backstory offered for any of the characters, and nearly no dialogue spoken that isn't immediately relevant to the situation; the enemy Germans are never even seen outside of their bombers, fighter planes. I rank this movie Five Michael Caine cameos out of 10.

Clearly, Harry Styles, who got his start on The X Factor in the United Kingdom and is lead singer of the band One Direction, falls into the "recognizable" category, but D'Arcy wasn't aware he was in the film until arriving to the set. It's runtime is two hours, and it is now in theaters.
