    How good is oppenheimer? You forget it's 3 hours long. Oppenheimer's so good, and Nolan's so good at structuring a story, that you seriously forget about the actual detonation of the bomb. The point of the movie isn't even the most fascinating part- that's how good this film is. Oppenheimer does a great job teaching you parts of history without boring you, or dragging you along, similar to "Killers of the Flower Moon." There are just enough plot points in the movie to keep your mind moving along that you stay energized and intrigued, but not too many that you forget what we're doing. Stunningly enough, this 3-hour epic is very rewatchable, in spite of it's mammoth size.

    In a world of superhero and comic book movies where most people cannot even name an important scientist to make a movie of this type is a bold achievement in and of itself. If the movie were just base don this it would still be important but this is a triumphant piece of filmmaking. It is brilliantly Directed, written, filmed, and musically scored. This movie is filled with terrific and award winning performances. Its use of editing for the time transitions is distinctly Christopher Nolan. The movie tells an important story in a sophisticated way to pays proper homage to the subject matter and to the science. Much of it is complex but told in a digestible fashion. The story of the American fear in the infancy of the Cold War is powerful. The cast is stellar, stellar. stellar.

    Three hours of what exactly? The switch from color to b&w was useless and detracting. The gratuitous sex, also useless. The bizarre graphics of “physics” and uptempo suspenseful music, just strange and ill-placed. This movie won an Oscar bc of the all star cast, good acting, and ridiculously fast dialogue that deceives viewers into thinking they are intelligent. At the same time, it moves too slowly. Emily Blunt was an implosion herself. Pugh was just naked. I don’t know, movies aren’t what they used to be, that’s for sure.

    A very neat film, well narrated and well acted. Given the historical facts involved, there is no room to deviate from the main topic. It's not the typical twisted Nolan movie that squeezes your brain. The film focuses more on Oppenheimer's personality and the struggle with his inner demons, faced with the responsibility of creating the weapon that will end the war.

    Movie of the years. Tremendous acting and a great story which happens to be a scary true story. Very important film.

    Honestly, maybe my hopes were too high. Being someone who has been interested in Oppenheimer as a person for a long time I was left amiss. Truthfully, the worst part of this movie was the method in which they attempted to tell this story. Their attempt at stitching multiple timelines was just oddly chaotic and took away from the progress that was being made. Anyway, yeah, don't think you need to like this movie simply because it won Oscar's or you want to feel smarter than you are. I give this film 3 wet kisses out of 5 💋

    I feel like there should have been more attention to the devastation caused in Japan. It would have been beneficial to the film for multiple reasons, but most of all to show humility and compassion.

    Great film. The way they play the music during many scenes really sets the mood.

    Casting was fantastic, it felt like a I was involved during the story telling process, cinematography was out of this world, Christopher Nolan is a true visionary and this movie is a product of his amazing abilities.
