Is Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Really A Masterpiece? — Cinemaholics


Usually on Cinemaholics, we stick to covering one featured movie and leaving the rest for “mini reviews.” But for the second week in a row, the summer release schedule disagreed with us, so Will Ashton, Maveryke Hines, and I reviewed both Dunkirk and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets this week.

This was a more contentious episode than usual, with most of us differing quite a bit on both of these movies, particularly Valerian. If you’re at all interested in seeing either of these films, our conversation might prove useful.

Just two Mini Reviews this week: Aftermath (starring Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Colossal (starring Anne Hathaway). The latter is a film I saw just this week as a blind buy on Will Ashton’s recommendation.

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Is More Survival Epic Than War Movie

Dunkirk was written and directed by Christopher Nolan and is his most recent film since Interstellar. Nolan has tackled a variety of genres to mostly great success; heists, magicians, space, and even comic books. But how does the blockbuster artist fare with historical war fiction?

Does ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ End This Trilogy Well? — Cinemaholics


I’ve never been the biggest fan of the prequel trilogy beginning with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but I do enjoy them as one of the better franchises available on the occasional summer. Joining me to discuss and review the final entry (for now), Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines share their own take on the long, fascinating tale that is most impressive for its motion-capture work featuring Andy Serkis than pretty much anything else.

We also did a feature review for The Big Sick, one of my favorite movies of 2017 so far and a true delight for fans of romantic comedies and really comedies in general. It’s a great discussion that we’ve been patiently waiting to have since last month. Our mini reviews this week include Lady MacbethA Ghost Story, and The Standups.
