    To me, this seems like the type of movie that the Academy will either really love or not give a second glance to. What do you guys think? Could it win Best Picture? Could Nolan finally win an Oscar? Which actors could get nominated? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I really want this to be fantastic but I have a horrible feeling, like I had with American Pastoral last year, that it won’t be.

    I’m shy on Nolan ever since Interstellar, his last big outing, failed to meet pretty much any of my expectations outside of the visuals, but since this is more solid subject matter I’m being cautiously optimistic. And I really do not know how Harry Styles will do acting; hopefully he’s filthed up enough to where he won’t take me out of the movie (as JT always does despite his best efforts to immerse himself).

    There are always movies every year that I hype myself up on and they just sort of spiral. Hopefully this isn’t one of them.

    I’m seeing this sort of like Saving Private Ryan. An incredible war film helmed by a respected director that’s able to exceed the standard tech nominations and score big. Granted, Christopher Nolan isn’t near the level of Steven Spielberg when he did Saving Private Ryan, as it was just after Schindler’s List, and Nolan hasn’t had something like that yet, but still. I optimistic for this film

    Interstellar is a fantastic film which will be properly understood in a few years from now.

    I feel that I’ll probably hate this when I first see it and then grow to love it in a weird respect way like I have with basically all of Christopher Nolan’s films

    I liked all of his films from the start even if “Interstellar” is way too long, although you might be right that it will age ok. IIWW is not the topic I’d love Nolan to explore but perhaps he’ll bring something different and singular to the table. That’s all I hope. He’s obviously overdue of Best Director nod since (at least) “Inception” so if the film will be great, why not.

    It will inevitably be a financial success but I hope it’s nowhere near the awards season and Nolan crybabies can suffer some more with their icon not being embraced by the Oscars.

    Nolan stans will combust and act like the film was the ignored second coming, Nolan haters will pretend like their tea makes up for their own pet Oscar bait getting snubbed, meanwhile Nolan himself will be like

    Nolan haters can’t win, because once they start dragging the oscar nominations for Dunkirk, they basically admitted they saw his film <3.

    Saw an advance screening of this film tonight. I don’t think I’ve ever been so stressed out watching a movie. This movie will be interesting because I anticipate a lot of critics loving it, but it not doing the best at the box office (similar to Interstellar’s box office numbers). I can also see some Nolan fans being disappointed, just because it doesn’t necessarily feel Nolan-esqe. I’ve already seem some reviews saying it’s “Nolan’s best yet,” but personally it is not my favorite film of his, and I think that’s primarily because its not an original Nolan idea. It’s very well made and I have it being nominated for 7 awards and winning at least 3 for sure. I would love Nolan to win Director, and I think he definitely has a chance to do so. I will definitely see it again (definitely in IMAX) and will probably like it even more than I do now.

    Nolan going for minimalism with length and dialogue will secure him goodwill after the bloated affairs of his multiplex epics.

    Why do you think an editing or even directing win would make it the BP winner?
