Movie Review: Dunkirk


When the credits roll on Christopher Nolan's latest film - a cinematic experience that brings the full scale of the Battle of Dunkirk to the big screen for the first time - the audience is left speechless. Unlike nearly all of his other films, it's not because you're trying Read more

Movie Review: Dunkirk

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Entertainment, Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | Leave a comment

When the credits roll on Christopher Nolan’s latest film – a cinematic experience that brings the full scale of the Battle of Dunkirk to the big screen for the first time – the audience is left speechless. Unlike nearly all of his other films, it’s not because you’re trying to digest the final twist or resolve the lingering ambiguity of a spinning top or space and time.

I was speechless because the film bombarded my senses, the story hit the rawest of human emotions, and the filmmaking was as powerful as it was masterful.

Despite many top critics calling Dunkirk one of, if not the best war film of all-time, Christopher Nolan maintains that he doesn’t view it as a war film at all. He views it more as a suspense thriller. But the experience of viewing Dunkirk transcends movie genre or rankings.

Perhaps no task is more difficult for a studio than casting a well-known franchise to match the sky-high expectations of fans. From novels to comic books to animated film remakes, Hollywood has had mixed results with the task; some have spent the big bucks to get the demanded stars, while others have went the opposite route and chosen unknowns in the hopes of appealing to crowds with the clean slate a new-comer provides.

Best-Movies-2016

Welcome to the Third Annual Groucho Awards! This is my own platform to nominate and award the movies of my choosing, because it seems that far too often, the movies with the biggest campaigns get Oscar nominations and the little guys are left out in the cold. This year I really didn’t take issue with hardly any of the Oscar nominations, but still have to do my own thing. Overall, 2016 was a great and underrated year for movies. It was a very disappointing year for blockbusters, so there might be a perception out there that it was a bad year for movies, but for those willing to dig a little deeper, I found it to be a very solid year.

What I Learned about Chris Pratt’s Faith

Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise when he helmed two of the biggest worldwide action blockbuster films, Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World.

I’ve been a huge fan of Chris Pratt’s from the beginning. He’s funny, he’s down to earth, and he doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously.

But I’ve also admired him for several years now because of what I’ve seen from him as a family man. Watching this video of him teaching his son the Pledge of Allegiance and respect for the American flag around Independence Day really got me.

The Top 10 Things in Entertainment for 2016

2016-Pop-Culture

2016 has largely been seen as a bad year, with one of the prominent reasons being the passing of so many artists and celebrities. While it certainly was painful to lose talents like Prince, David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, and dozens of others, those ends didn’t take away from the huge gains entertainment made this year. It was a spectacular year in those regards, and I can’t think of a better legacy for those that have left us than the tremendous work the following artists churned out the last 365 days. Read more

I traveled to visit family this weekend, so as new trailers came pouring in over the weekend from San Diego’s Comic-Con, I was only able to watch a couple of them. I’m sure many of you may be interested in seeing them, debating them, and discussing them. So I figured as I caught up on them, I would put them all in one spot here at The Wise Guise for your viewing ease and pleasure.

So in the world of TV and film, here’s all the latest trailers and previews from Comic-Con. And because I’m feeling opinionated, I thought I’d grade each one for you and provide some small commentary.

Enjoy!
