I've added Dunkirk to this one, as well as all the scores I've heard (I had to guess on a few people's, so Neville, if you're going for a + on this one, just say so). Haven't seen anything from John, Tatum, Shockwave, or Danny on the subject, so their scores are not included.

I actually enjoyed Dunkirk quite a bit, but for the most part his films have such sparse characterization that I can't get emotionally invested at all. Inception could've been a truly great sci-fi movie, but the characters never felt like real people and I never cared about them at all. Such a waste of a good premise.

My wife fell asleep twice during Dunkirk - I was teetering on it for the majority of the film.  A war movie with insignificant characters and super long lulls in the action just didn't make it with me.  My favorite war films are Apocalypse Now, FMJ, and Deer Hunter - all of them either have strong character connections and/or identifications + great "war" action. I didn't feel that at all about Dunkirk.

With regards to Inception - as you say "such a waste of a good premise".  Well, as I've stated many times, he completely ripped off that premise from Dreamscape; but, not only that, he made a point of saying how it took him so long to come up with...yeah, and I bet it took forever for Suzanne Collins to come up with the premise for Hunger Games.  The movie itself was pretty mediocre in my eyes - again, the characters were so stiff and unrelatable that I just didn't give a shit by the time the top was spinning at the end.
