Logan Paul Walks Out as J. Robert Oppenheimer

(DailyDig.com) – The WWE and YouTube sensation Logan Paul didn’t care for Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer,” and he joked about how he left the cinema early for a seemingly silly reason: that he couldn’t keep up with the plot.

One of the summer’s unexpected successes, “Oppenheimer,” has been smashing box office records despite its R rating. It’s still doing well in cinemas, weeks after it first opened. Yet, not everyone who has seen it has liked what they have seen.

In the most recent installment of his “ImPaulsive,” podcast, Paul discussed “Oppenheimer” with Australian filmmakers Michael and Danny Philippou, who are siblings responsible for the critically acclaimed horror movie “Talk to Me.” After telling the Philippou brothers that the opening 20 minutes of their movie were too sluggish, the conversation naturally moved on to Nolan’s picture.

Paul said that he left “Oppenheimer” unexpectedly, which surprised the Philippou brothers and his podcast viewers. When Paul was asked why, he rambled something about not understanding what they were up to. He said the characters were all just chatting it up. Paul described a section of the film as simply 90 minutes of chatting; just talking for an hour and a half. He said there was too much scene-setting and that besides several scenes of conversing, nothing else occurred.

Despite Paul’s apparent tolerance for movies like “Talk to Me,” it’s obvious that “Oppenheimer” failed to captivate him in the same manner. Nolan’s film clearly hooked audiences, as seen by its dominance at the box office.

With a 93% fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes and an 88 score on Metacritic, Paul’s opinion of “Oppenheimer” stands in stark contrast to the general consensus. Plus, the nearly $720 million profit at the international box office is proof of its popularity.

However, a reevaluation of “Oppenheimer” is not completely out of the question. Paul said that Nolan’s “Interstellar” was so sluggish that he nearly left the theater after 18 minutes, but the picture is now among his three greatest favorites.
