Dunkirk fails the IMDB search algorithm for 'dunk'

Dunkirk fails the IMDB search algorithm for 'dunk'
Apparently, in the week of the release of one of the biggest films of the year and an early Oscar frontrunner, IMDB thinks that if you type 'Dunk' into its search bar, you are still more likely to be looking for 'Slam Dunk', a Japanese cartoon about an awesome basketball player.

Side note: Janet Jackson? What are you doing here?

Review: Dunkirk

Dunkirk
I don't want to write off an entire category of cinema, but... war films. They can be a bit heavy-going, can't they? Yes, there are some amazing standouts in this crowded genre, but it can be really hard to muster up the enthusiasm to watch a movie depicting the experience of war, which is basically: it's truly horrifying when not intensely boring. Luckily, things are different this time round, because a) Christoper Nolan films have never not been great, b) it's mercifully short at under two hours, and c) maybe there'll be a twist and the soldiers of Dunkirk will get rescued by Batman?
