    Following -- brilliant
    Memento -- one of the best movies ever made
    Insomnia -- (have not seen)
    The Batman Derp -- fascism is gross and so are these
    Inception -- solid
    Interstellar -- solid, although jesus fuck that ending
    Dunkirk -- (have not seen)
    Tenet -- (have not seen)

    In general, the bigger his budget the worse the movie. cf. Jackson, P. and Cameron, J.

      • If it was just another Nolan movie I would probably be meh. I've enjoyed his stuff ok but never been "oh it's a Nolan movie, I need to see it." With this one it's the subject matter I am really interested in. Ever since the Chernobyl series I think every book I've heard has been about atomic/nuclear/radiation history and I've tried to watch other documentaries on those subject that I can find. I find it all fascinating

            It was very good, but it would have been much better if they just did it in order. It's a historical movie, I don't see why it needed to be out of order, what did that accomplish.

              • Wow! What a lineup. I'm really impressed with the deep cuts they chose.


                I'm also a little taken aback by seeing movies from the 80s now appear in TCM's catalog.

                  What used to be the oldies station here moved to a classic hits format and plays everything up to grunge/90s now. I mean, it has been 30 years.

                              The first one, I assume?

                              I love that movie. MAD did a great parody of it.
