Oppenheimer's Practical Explosion Doesn't Stand Up to David Lynch's CGI Trinity Test

Christopher Nolan's "Oppenheimer" used practical effects for depicting Trinity, the first nuclear detonation. However, some think that director David Lynch did it better.

Many fans loved Nolan's approach, noting the suspenseful build-up to the explosion and the immersive theater experience it provided.

Some critics argued that the sequence didn't capture an accurate scale of the explosion. Fans of David Lynch claim his CGI Trinity Test in "Twin Peaks: The Return" was better.

Lynch's CGI version in "Twin Peaks" showcases the massive scale and power of the nuclear explosion. The event is used as a catalyst for the supernatural occurrences in the series.

Nolan's "Oppenheimer" focuses on the technical details of the Trinity Test and the emotional responses of its creators, emphasizing authenticity and post-detonation.

Both directors offer distinct interpretations of the same historical event, and each provides a potent reminder of the terrifying nature of nuclear weapons.
