Dreary unnecessary complex storytelling that lacked an emotional core? Or an audio-visual cinematic masterpiece that showcased the horrors of war and the resilience of the human spirit? We feud, you decide! Answer the poll on Twitter @filmfeudpod or let us know on Facebook who you think won the feud.

On this week’s feud, Vidur and Vikram face a nerve wracking coin toss as they are faced with yet another Christopher Nolan movie - Dunkirk. It becomes difficult to hide their thoughts since they happened to have watched the movie in the theater together.

Once the feud begins, they bring out the big guns and bombard each other with arguments. While it clear that neither of them are good students of history, they prove to be good students of Nolan. After getting concessions about the aerial dogfighting in IMAX out of the way, they start firing script-complaint bullets and nitpicking grenades at each other. The heavy artillery is saved for the end when Tom Hardy is accused of being a one note actor, that one note being is his off-key voice as Bane.

The Hans Zimmer score is broken down. Scenes are compared to the 1997 Bollywood epic, “Border”. The words “Harry Styles” and “Oscar” are uttered in the same sentence.
