    It's highly entertaining at times.
    Good Musical Score.
    Nice Cinematography with some nice wide-angle shots.
    I do not see the reason for the sex scene on the chair in the backdoor court room.
    I get it though.
    Sex Sales.
    That scene is just a bit uncomfortable since everyone else is dressed in the room and his wife is right there.
    I get it.
    Shock Value.
    Another problem with the movie is the ongoing music.
    They don't need to run 3-hour long music constantly during the film.
    It would be more impactful in many of those scenes if it was just dialog and no music.
    Nolan really went cray cray with never-ending pulse pounding epic music.
    It's good but it also gets annoying after a while, being that the movie is 3 hours long.
    I held out a long time but glad I finally viewed it.
    I think that if you watch the Paul Newman version Fat Man and Little Boy (1989) first that it compliments what Nolan was doing here.
    It kind of reinforces this newer version.
    In my opinion, Oppenheimer is the better version of this story.
    But I don't mind long winded movies.
    I couldn't get past the politics of Oppenheimer. Probably an expectations sort of thing. I mean, of course there were politics and scheming present during the effort to make The Bomb, but my interest in physics created a desire for the movie to have a lot more of that element, which it didn't. Anyway thanks for the Fat Man and Little Boy reco - I didn't see that one if my memory serves me, so I am looking forward to watching it.

    Better than most of the trash they release today.
    I didn't take it too seriously.
    I hope Horizon is better but it's probably about the same level.
    No hurry to go see it.
    Wait for Streaming, so I can be comfortable and pause when necessary.
    I watched SaltBurn the other day.
    Had to fast forward some of the sick, disgusting scenes.
    Most of the ending was just sick, shock-factor, fast-forward for me.
    Talented Mr. Ripley did it first and better.
    I watched it mainly to get a look inside the Drayton House, where they filmed it.

    (lul I think you watched Fat Man. John Cusack turns into a Radioactive Monster, just like in modern day real life, lol.)

    Well, I downloaded Fat Man and Little Boy yesterday, so, once I start watching it, I'll likely know in the beginning moments of the film if I already watched it at some point. Speaking of the Talented Mr. Ripley, I watched the Netflix TV series version (IIRC it was eight episodes or so) a few months back. There was nothing really wrong with it, but it didn't come close to the film version with Matt Damon IMHO.

    It turned out that I hadn't seen Fat Man and Little Boy Monet. I enjoyed the movie. There was a lot more interaction between A-team TV series member Oppenheimer (Dwight Schultz) and General Groves in this 1989 offering than there was in the new one IIRC. Another great performance by John C. "Wallstreet" McGinley. Another big difference (IIRC) was that in the new movie, it was only revealed by General Groves to Oppenheimer towards the end of the new movie that the Nazi's didn't have a nuke, whereas in this 1989 version, Oppenheimer learned this earlier (say a little more than halfway in). Basically, pretty different takes on the whole deal between the two movies. Thanks again for the reco.

    Personally, I'm not a big fan of Bikers or Motorcycle Clubs.
    But my dad was, and uncle enjoys watching that sort of thing.
    So, I go and buy the streaming version of the Bike Riders for 25 bux.
    I figure it's cheaper than going to the movies and give us some entertainment.
    Welp, WRONG... lol, I made it 20 minutes till I turned that whiny bitch off.
    Movie is told from some Biker Wife Perspective, and we all know I am pretty much part of the Woman Haters Club.
    I do love women, but I hate them when they can't shut the fuck up or when they are in leadership roles.
    And I hate them in the workforce.
    Just causes way too many problems.
    Anyways, the movie constantly skips around, and she never shuts up.
    Horrible way to tell a story.
    Too Bad since Tom Hardy is a pretty good actor.

    Thanks Monet. Given that your uncle had no problem with a termination at 20 minutes (and he likes Biker-themed movies), it must have been extremely bad versus someone indifferent to the Genre like yourself (or myself as well) discontinuing the movie.
    I did really like the movie The Warriors (1979) as I may have mentioned, however that was from the more general Genre of Gangs as opposed to Biker Gangs.
    Well in mid-august they will release another Alien movie (Romulus) which I am planning to watch, so hopefully it will be entertaining.
