The new movie just keeps beating everything on its way to stardom.
Christopher Nolan's fans love his films for many reasons, but the main one that makes them obsessed with each new project is their complex nature. Nolan's epic films are always a big deal in the movie world and never go unnoticed.
The same can be said for the new Oppenheimer film that has just hit theaters. The biopic about the father of the atomic bomb is already getting more than enough great reviews even to speculate about its award-winning future.
So it was no surprise when the epic film received a great score on Rotten Tomatoes, extending Nolan's perfect streak on the site. Oppenheimer received a 92 percent score from critics, making it the third highest-rated film on Nolan's list.
The first two on the list are Memento with 93 percent and The Dark Knight with 94 percent. Even though it's only number three on the chart for now, Oppenheimer has managed to break a few records.
The average Rotten Tomatoes score for Nolan's films from all critics is 85 percent. But there is a select group of "Top Critics" who tend to rate Nolan's films slightly lower. For example, the average review score there is 79 percent.
But Oppenheimer changed that for the better. The movie earned a 95 percent Top Critic score, which is actually Nolan's highest career score. What's interesting here is that Oppenheimer's Top Critic score is only one point higher than second-place Insomnia, but four points higher than third-place Dunkirk's 91 percent.
The rest of Christopher Nolan's filmography falls between 88 percent and 63 percent, but still earns Fresh ratings all the way down the line.
Oppenheimer's near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes score, however, has pushed Nolan's already successful career even higher. And it’s only the beginning!
