In the last week, I've seen Despicable Me 3 (not as good as the other two, but still good - if you like Minions, of course) and Baby Driver (Excellent. Not so sure about the last act, but it's a very stylish film. Visually, but more importantly in the sound and use of music). Both worth a watch, IMO; Baby Driver moreso if you have to choose one.

Dunkirk. We were there.
Good film. I give it 2 stars, Dad gave it 4. I thought Atonement did a better job at portraying the beach scenes. They just didn't have enough extras in this film to portray the panic and sheer numbers of the debacle. Way too much time focused on the air scenes made it feel very low budget. Overall a good effort and a killer Vangelis style soundtrack by Hans Zimmer that led and carried the whole piece. The first 20 minutes of the film are excellent. The pacing, the look, the atmosphere gives it that Saving Private Ryan kick off a good war film needs.
And then Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins) turns up, an actor who I hate. This ruined it a bit for me. The rest of the acting was spot on including Branagh with the Royal Shakespeare sea admiral character. Would I watch again? Probably not. If you like Spitfires though, this film is epic. For a better war film see Hamburger Ridge or American Sniper.
Very patriotic in places and very real but ultimately not A Bridge Too Far. :) I enjoyed the time with Dad as we sat under the speaker and he was leaping out of his seat literally and yelling "SHIT" "POOR BUGGERS"> LOL
