Re: Dunkirk Official Reviews Discussion

So I see that Rex Reed and David Edelstein are literally the only top critics with "rotten" reviews; I'm not surprised but why are these guys so out of touch with reality? :facepalm: Anyway, the BFCA/Critics Choice score is at a very healthy 90 now. Also not surprised to see that climb as there was ...

Re: 'Dunkirk' Nolan Fans Member Reviews (NFometer)

As a perfectionist I always have a hard time understanding how someone can actually call something (a film no less) "perfect" . Perfection is mythic, it is unattainable, and there's always room for improvement, so I've always been a bit baffled by the 100 scores on Metacritic or 5/5, 4/4, etc star r...

Re: 'Dunkirk' Nolan Fans Member Reviews (NFometer)

I'm going to use my old rating format that I adapted from a site I found once; it involves rating from 1 to 10 in five main categories then adding up and doubling the score to get a total out of 100. Here goes... Acting- 8 I felt in some regards it was kind of like 'The Tree of Life' in the sense th...

Re: Dunkirk Official Reviews Discussion

94 on MC because of a mixed review. I don't get it . Well they posted BOTH David Edelstein and Rex Reed, go figure... Anyways I'll be seeing this in less than an hour at which point the reviews won't matter much and I can decide for myself if the review hype has been justified. Here's to a grand ci...

Re: Dunkirk Official Reviews Discussion

Oh jeez...well I figured it was just a matter of time before some of the stupid NY critics backlashed. I mean it wouldn't be a Nolan film otherwise, right? :roll: The two David's (Denby and Edelstein) are both pretty bad, but Rex Reed is the worst... It could be some consolation though that I notice...

Re: Dunkirk Oscar Chances

The 80 score on the CriticsChoice website (formerly BFCA.org) Um, tbh, I was worried about this score a little. People here were freaking out when it dropped fast to 86 and no one could understand what's wrong. But then I saw some tweet on twitter saying that it is like 5 people who voted there and...

Re: Dunkirk Oscar Chances

The 80 score on the CriticsChoice website (formerly BFCA.org) may put it out of contention in major categories should that score stand (ie all Best Pic nominees the last five years scored 85 or higher; 59 out of 62 have since the Academy expanded the Best Pic category) but I'm guessing it's prematur...

Re: Dunkirk Official Reviews Discussion

It's fun seeing all the forum members who haven't posted in a long time coming out of the woodwork. Glad to know you're all still alive. Icbaseball22, I don't think I've seen you post since TDKR days. Or maybe you were there for Interstellar too, I can't remember. Anyway, do we know how much that t...
