Yeah, so, in this week’s Dorking Out we review Christopher Nolan’s new movie, “Dunkirk.”
I have mixed feelings about it. It’s visually awesome, and Nolan is so great at building a sense of dread and panic, but I had a difficult time telling some of the characters apart, which made it difficult to connect to the story. I think I might like it more if I see it again, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
Side Note: Why does Nolan insist on covering up Tom Hardy’s handsome face in all his movies? Rude!
In our second segment, Peter Brown from Assignment X joins us to talk about all the buzzy new trailers from Comic-Con, including “The Defenders,” “Ready Player One,” “Justice League,” “Thor Ragnarok,” “Star Trek Discovery” and more. Somehow this leads into an argument between Smith and I about which “Star Trek” movie is the worst “Star Trek” movie. I think “Star Trek Into Darkness” is the worst one, while Smith thinks it’s “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.” Personally, I would rather watch “Star Trek V,” because I like the original cast so much. Smith thinks I’m crazy, and it turned into an entertaining brawl.
And finally, Peter sticks around for our “what we’re dorking out about this week” segment, which has turned into a “Game Of Thrones” recap and discussion. If you watch the show, and I suspect you do, then you should definitely listen. We have a lot to talk about.
