About this Episode

If you only saw one movie in the summer of 2023… statistically speaking it was probably Barbie. But if you saw two movies in the summer of 2023… okay, statistically it's fairly likely they were both Barbie. But if you saw two movies on the same day in the summer of 2023, there is technically a non-zero chance that today's film wasn’t one of them, but it probably was.

Sweeping into the zeitgeist and on its way to grossing over one billion dollars, Christopher Nolan's new three-hour imax 70mm extravaganza seems to be winning over most viewers and almost all of the critics. Labels of "masterpiece" are being thrown around everywhere by peers and laymen alike, and it seems there is no stopping this juggernaut from becoming one of the most-watched and most-talked about films of the last decade.

But what do your intrepid Danger Close hosts think? Who will be "the Liam" in this episode, and has Nolan redeemed himself from the abysmal failure that was Tenet (or Inception if you ask Liam, but that's a fight for another day)?

Tune in and find out, on this episode of your favorite war film podcast!
