Motor Crush Rush Recently, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing three comic book hotshots at Rose City Comic Con.

In this episode of TGE Watches, Mark, Ryan, and I discuss Christopher Nolan’s epic Dunkirk. We decided to break our summer movie superhero run with quite a different epic film. Two of us enjoyed it and one was quite very disappointed. Official Description Three different perspectives with overlapping time periods: one week on land, one day at sea, and one hour in the air, create a non-linear narrative. Introductory text at the start of the movie says that in 1940, after the invasion of France, hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers had retreated to Dunkirk. As German forces close in, they await evacuation in a seemingly hopeless situation. Our Analysis Our opinionsRead More →
