I didn't get the trailer of this movie when they showed it. I heard about it recenlty and if it's anything like "saving private Ryan" movie i guess it's worth a watch ?

it's on my viewing list that's for sure, I don't go to theaters, the movies tend to run out so quickly that by the time I remember to go to the movies it's already gone. but from what I've learned about it, it's an intense battle moment in history with acting and scenes. but no it's not like saving private ryan, it's actually an opposite war movie showing the losing not the winning, shots first person view as well. here's a link to explain further, caution might contain spoilers. https://www.writeyourscreenplay.com/dunkirk-podcast-dunkirk-vs-saving-private-ryan/

Just saw this Tuesday evening in IMax.
Yes. Go see this movie.
It's intense. I've not been jumpy at a movie in years. I flinched. Several times.

Knowing what happened in the broad strokes of history books and even articles and TV shows doesn't prepare you for the nightmare those on land and sea and in the air went through. There's actually not a whole lot of dialog in the film, but it doesn't need it.
Visually, it's gorgeous to look at. Aurally, it draws you in and doesn't really let go.

I found myself thinking "c'mon get in there", or "get out of there," and 'take the damn shot already!" at various points, as if it were happening in real time. So I can say, yes, it was very immersive, and I found myself emotionally invested.

Gives you a whole new perspective, and a deeper (or new if you're not familiar with the history) appreciation of what they managed to pull off.

Then tonight (Wednesday) I went to see "In This Corner of the World," only I didn't know what it was about. I happened to see a blurb about it in the paper a woman next to me on the subway was reading, made a note to look it up, saw that it was playing near my job and bought a ticket.

Holy crap was I unprepared for that!
Excellent movie, beautiful animation, amazing story, but another one where you know how it's gonna end, but you're still not ready for how they get to that point. Left me speechless at the end. There was nothing and everything to say. Also sit through the credits. ;)

So yeah, if you can see that one as well do so, but just don't do these two movies back to back.
I'm gutted, honestly.

I seen this the day it came out, it was kind of boring to be honest.

It's an alright war movie. The way it cuts between staggered timelines was a bit jarring.
