Back to School Issue: A Nuclear Display of a Movie

Was “Oppenheimer” truly the best movie of the summer? Yes.

Oppenheimer film poster.

The highly anticipated Christopher Nolen film, Oppenheimer, was released on July 21, and to say the least, it was well worth the wait. With a 93% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 8.9/10 on IMDb, this film hit every mark.

Nolen is no stranger to directing blockbuster World War II movies, such as the 2017 film Dunkirk. This one, however, was very different from Dunkirk, it’s more fast paced and leaves you wondering what comes next. Some call this film the best one he has ever directed, and I can’t seem to disagree with that.

The effects, acting and storytelling are all aspects that make this film simply groundbreaking. In a movie about a bomb, one might expect CGI everywhere, but Nolan opted for minimal effects, choosing to create more depth by focusing on the plot line. However, being a movie about a bomb, many showed up to see earth-shaking explosions on the big screen, and the CGI he did use was spectacularly explosive.

The movie depicts the mind of the “Father of The Atomic Bomb,” J. Robert Oppenheimer, during his work on the Manhattan Project, the aftermath of Hiroshima and how he changed the course of history.

The chilling silence of this movie is what makes such an intense experience. It creates a tightness within your chest making it hard to breathe. Not knowing when the impending explosion will happen keeps you on the edge of your seat.

However, it is the star-studded cast, consisting of Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, etc., that makes this movie so memorable. Anyone could look at this lineup and know, without a shadow of a doubt, that this film would be the one to beat at every upcoming award show.

There is no doubt in my mind that this movie is the best of the summer, and quite possibly the year. It is, in every way, remarkable.

About the Contributor
Keirra McGoldrick
Keirra McGoldrick, Opinion Editor
Keirra McGoldrick is senior at Robinson and the Opinion Editor of Knight Writers. This is her third year on staff and her second year as an editor. McGoldrick, as an editor, must provide a sense of direction and help for those coming into newspaper who may not quite know what they need to be doing. She must also make sure that all stories written by staff writers are up to par with that of the standard for the newspaper. “I edit all the opinion stories and make spreadsheets for opinion writers," McGoldrick said. McGoldrick may like writing in journalism, though nothing trumps her love of photography. She lists photography as one of her favorite hobbies and pass times outside of journalism. “I like photography," McGoldrick said. "I take pictures of anything I find interesting." Though McGoldrick has to keep up a balance of her academics and the needs of newspaper, she hopes to have enough time to join the photography club.  She wishes to do this in order to interact and convey her love of photography with other like-minded students at Robinson. Being the academic achiever that she is, McGoldrick keeps up with all of her classes. The two of these classes that she holds closest to her heart are journalism and history. However, she probably favors journalism a little more because it has her favorite teacher, Ms. Webster, who leads her to improve herself in all manner of things, especially photography. Outside of journalism, one of McGoldrick’s pastimes is to listen to music. As we know everyone needs a little bit of music to pull them through a slow school day, or just a slow day in general. “I like R&B and pop," McGoldrick said. “Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, etc." High school isn't all McGoldrick has mapped out to do. Seeing as she is an academic achiever, McGoldrick already has plans for her future. She plans to keep her academic streak going through college. “I plan on going to university and majoring in criminal psychology and then after I graduate from normal college, I’m going to go get a PhD,” McGoldrick said.
