So, you’ve made it through the first two recommendations I suggested and now you’re back for more? Do I look like I’ve seen every movie released last year? The answer is: yes, yes I do. Tonight if you want to catch up on the Oscar Nominees you should check out….Dun Dun, Dun Dun, Dun Dun Dun Dun Dun. Have you guessed yet? If you answered Jaws, close. The nest nominee is Dunkirk, written and directed by none other than Christopher Nolan.
Dunkirk is a film based on actual events that takes place during WWII. When allied soldiers from Belgium, Brittan, and France get surrounded by the German army there is only one thing left to do: Escape. This movie tells the story of their hardships and the valiant efforts made by the citizens of London.
This movie has a rock star cast… (Harry Styles) and other amazing actors: Tom Hardy, Barry Keoghan, Damien Bonnard, Billy Howle, are just a few of the faces you’ll see on the screen.
This movie with its $100,000,000 budget took the hearts of many and raised the anxiety level of myself. Just watch the trailer below and you’ll understand.
That ticking noise, the one throughout the trailer is throughout the film, it rises and falls in key moments and makes you wonder what is going to happen next. Not only was this an amazing film, it had a phenomenal score to go along with it, which it’s also nominated for.
All in all, I do agree with this nomination hands down.
Dunkirk is also nominated for:
Film Editing, Dunkirk
Music (Original Score), Dunkirk
Production Design, Dunkirk
Sound Editing, Dunkirk
Sound Mixing, Dunkirk
Dunkirk is available to purchase on Blu-ray and DVD.
