One of my favorite youtubers cleansed his channel and his internet presence.

Hopefully nothing bad has happened. He made amazing videos debunking pseudoscience and a lot of con artists threatened legal action in the past.

Hellblade 2 not in top 100, wowza.

Gamepass limits sales of course but it seems like it's selling poorly even for a gamepass game. Did redfall chart?

No excuses. He can fly West to East and go back in time.

I liked most of the los Alamos stuff. Great job building suspense towards the first test.

I disliked pretty much everything else. Like WTF was up with Einstein's speech at the end? It makes no sense. Outside of being Jewish physicists alive during the same events, Einstein had very little in common with Oppenheimer. Why is he passing down sage advice?

Nolan doesn't fake stuff. The semi in Dark Knight was a real semi.  

It also had a real Batman and a real joker and actually blew up a hospital
He didn't get a real nuke, I'd count it as fake.  8)

The real stuff in batman, interstellar, tenet, and inception were all secondary things that improved the film in subtle ways. Like Interstellar used real corn yet cgi corn combines.

Finally watched Oppenheimer the other day.

Good middle surrounded by two bad chunks, a sandwich with moldy bread.



Easy bottom of the list for Nolan films imo. So boring a lot of the time and the writing was just hilariously dorky here and there. A 2 hour edit could have been much better.

The explosion was also disappointing. I had heard in advance that it was bad and yeah, it was bad. Why the heck did Nolan use real explosives when a few pounds of tnt look absolutely nothing like a nuclear bomb?
