The year’s largest feature office hit, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, has reached $700 million (£550 million) in worldwide box office receipts. However, not everyone’s opinions are marvelous on the blockbuster hit. J. Robert Oppenheimer, a real-life physicist who worked on the development of the atomic bombs unleashed on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, is the subject of the book Oppenheimer. Currently, it holds the record for the highest-grossing World War II movie. The YouTuber and boxer, Logan Paul has acknowledged that he “walked out” of an Oppenheimer screening because of the “lack of action” at the beginning of the film. Paul, 28, expressed his disinterest in the movie on a recent episode of ImPaulsive, the podcast he co-hosts with internet personalities Mike Majlak and George Janko.
He said, “I walked out of Oppenheimer,” in conversation with Danny and Michael Philippou, the Australian filmmakers behind the current horror smash Talk To Me from A24. The siblings’ response was one of utter amazement. Paul acknowledged that he gave up on the Cillian Muphy-starring movie because he felt the plot to be too slow-moving and dialogue-ridden.
He moreover added, “I didn’t know what they were trying [to do],” he continued. “‘What are you doing?’ Everyone’s just talking. It’s just an hour and a half, 90 minutes, of talking, just talking, talking.” Apparently, Logan had difficulty comprehending Nolan’s Interstellar, 2014. He said regarding the film, “I was also, separately, 18 minutes into Interstellar, and I was considering walking out because it was so slow, and now Interstellar’s one of my top three favorite movies.”
