If the British did not hold their fort at Dunkirk then the Second World War could have easily reached their shore.

Dunkirk has been written and directed by Christopher Nolan and whenever he takes on a project he changes major things in the game of movie making. From block busters like Batman Begins, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher leaves his mark for excellence.

Dunkirk is a film based on the Battle of Dunkirk when the British and French soldiers were left to wait to be rescued by the seaside as they fought valiantly against the Nazi Germany in 1940.

Christopher picks the themes of land, air and sea to show off the hardships and close shaves his heroes face. From the bomber planes to the Navy warships and the men at the beach with their rifles, they are all trying to save their lives from Nazi Germany. He uses an interesting time lapse technique to depict his story from the Pilots, Navy Officers to the rescuers who come on their private British cruisers.

The stars in the film include, the voice of Michael Caine, then One Direction’s pop star Harry Styles makes his acting debut, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy.

It is an excellent watch. The pressure builds up with the help of the soundtrack by Hans Zimmer, another one of his excellent piece of work. The cinematographer Dutch Hoyte van Hoytema whose work includes the James Bond Spectre, proves his brilliant skills in taking the audience from beach to sea and the skies suspense of the war.

Dunkirk is a must for die hard Nolan fans and any one who wants to see a piece of history captured magnificently.

Daniel Craig may continue to revel in rumours that this is his last Bond film, but it looks like he is planning on a trilogy with Director Sam Mendes. They made Skyfall, Spectre and possibly the next “S”.

The film Spectre opens to the Mexican Dead Day Festival and a very interesting action sequence with a helicopter, by the way Bond does a lot of flying in this film. Soon comes the villain’s widow and Bond’s first seductress or this time it was the other way around and Monica Belluci may be old but their intimate scene is exquisitely and maturely handled.

Ralph Fiennes as M is showing age and Spectre is about “an international organization” that will manage the world’s security bodies, M has no place in this team. But Q and MoneyPenny are quick to rescue the situation and assist Bond as he goes Rogue and meets his love interest Dr Madeline Swan (Lea Seydoux). They then both set off to meet the villain, Ernst Stravo Blofeld (Christoph Waltz), while the action sequences and fashion sense exude Bondness, Christoph is underused and doesn’t scar till the end.

Bond lovers don’t miss it, Daniel Craig fans you won’t be disappointed because he really looks like he’s having fun and looking damn good. The villain is underused and looking forward to the next one.

London doesn’t disappoint, Music Director Thomas Newman keeps you on the edge and Sam Mendes rocks.
