Dunkirk the movie

Quite the mess.  5/10, wouldn't mind a refund.
If every black male 18-35 applied for a conceal & carry permit, and then joined the NRA in one day; there would be gun control laws in a second.

Looked promising....Dunkirk was a messy subject to work with.  Saved me $40 or more.

The critics loved it - which doesn't necessarily mean a damned thing.

I can wait for the DVD to come out, or even for it to show up on cable.

I made the mistake of seeing it in an IMAX theater.  The decibel level was set at 10x an earthquake so i'm still not right in the head.

And the local critics recommended seeing it in IMAX.

I'm enough of a crusty old fart that I prefer watching movies at home.  I have a nice TV and surround system, can pause the movie anytime I need a break, can adjust the volume to my preferences, and I don't have to worry about screaming kids or someone talking through the whole movie (except my wife).  My sofa is also a lot more comfortable than the theatre seats.  Plus, I don't have to worry about traffic or someone dinging my car door.  Not to mention, I don't have to worry about getting shot, which happened about 25 miles from here when a retired cop got in a confrontation with someone who was talking on his cell phone BEFORE the movie started.

Loved Mark Rylance's performance.  Would not surprise me at all if he gets the Best Supporting Actor.

There's an opportunity there that is difficult to pass up Buck.  But I will.
