Spider-Man: Homecoming was great, Michael Keaton played a brilliant villain. Didn't think much of Shocker, but I did like the nod to his original costume in the jacket he wore.

Much as I love the Tobey Maguire films (not necessarily for the right reasons), this is definitely my favourite Spidey film to date.

Dunkirk: a non-stop nail-biting experience of one event in British history. Incredibly tense, but ultimately uplifting by the end.

It's also a great display of the British "stiff-upper lip" ideal, to not surrender and to keep on going. However, as my friend who saw it with me thought, emotional drama and weight is certainly not as prominent as it maybe should. But then again, in my view, that may have detracted from the core experience of the film.

Some good performances, but none particularly outstanding. What is most notable is Hans Zimmer's excellent score, a constant ticking tenseness that never ceases.

All in all, a great film and a must see.

I saw Dunkirk last night, thought it was fantastic. As you said the musical score was fantastic with how it kept the tension throughout the film. Thought the relative lack of dialogue certainly helped with the atmosphere of the film as well.

The only part I didn't really understand was why the pilot played by Tom Hardy decided to land his plane in the an area outside of allied control and subsequently letting himself be captured rather than just ejecting over the sea and stand a chance of getting evacuated alongside the other British troops after he's glided down to earth with his parachute. He also stood around to watch his plane burn rather than getting out of there, I get he probably had orders to burn it if landed in enemy territory but why did he stick around past the point of no return for the craft?

Yeh, that is a little odd. I think it's mainly because after Tom Hardy shoots down the last enemy plane whilst he himself only gliding without any fuel, he knows that the final boat must have already left, and that it would be pointless and too risky to glide back out into open water for just the hope of being picked up by a boat. Instead he'd rather land the plane safely, destroy it so the Germans don't get their hands on it, and be taken as a prisoner of war since then he has the chance to live

I thought there were still troops waiting to be picked up when he first flew over and shot the plane down, I'm sure there was troops cheering.

The only thing I can find after a quick Google is that parachutes needed to be deployed at higher altitudes to open properly, it'd have made more sense in my opinion to decrease speed over the sea and risk the parachute rather than get caught, stood a good chance of getting killed either from the fall or as a prisoner of war so the odds weren't amazing either way.

The pedant in me still thinks the title should have been spelled properly, as all the signs in France call it Dunkerque.

Power Rangers (2017) and it was as good an adaptation as I thought. Of course most of what I think we all wanted to see was towards the end, but overall they've done well at establishing the core team of rangers in what I hope will continue with the green ranger, as confirmed by the post-credits scene.

They certainly did do a good job of building the characters, though the final battle's reliance on the zords... I suppose it was something different from the usual summon the zords -> form the megazord most seasons rely on.
