Logan Paul has become the subject of ridicule after he explained why he walked out of the movie Oppenheimer.

The 28-year-old opened up about his views on a recent episode of his podcast Impaulsive, which he co-hosts Mike Majlak, saying that he decided to leave the cinema because he was disinterested by the film's "lack of action."

"I walked out of Oppenheimer," he said while in conversation with his guests, Danny and Michael Philippou, the Australian filmmaker brothers behind A24’s recently released horror hit Talk To Me.

When questioned about his reasons for doing so, the YouTuber-turned-wrestler admitted that he found the development of the storyline too slow for his liking, while also being unimpressed by the dialogue.

"I didn’t know what they were trying [to do]," he continued in the clip. "'What are you doing?' Everyone’s just talking. It’s just an hour and a half, 90 minutes, of talking, just talking, talking.

"It’s all exposition. Nothing happened," he added.

Of course, Paul's guests were shocked by his views, but the reaction didn't stop him from admitting that he felt a similar vibe about Interstellar, another Christopher Nolan classic that stars some notable greats in the industry including Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Timothee Chalamet, and Matt Damon.

"I was also, separately, 18 minutes into Interstellar, and I was considering walking out because it was so slow, and now Interstellar’s one of my top three favorite movies," Paul added.

After the snippet of the podcast was reposted to Twitter, thousands of users took to the comments to roast the WWE star.

"I walk out of watching podcast they just talk," wrote one user.

"Just like he walked out tryna battle Dillion, yea buddy everytime you walk it’s an L choice," another added, referring to his rivalry against the mixed martial artist Dillon Danis.

"You heard it here first, Logan Paul doesn’t know cinema," a third also commented.

A fourth also defended Interstellar, despite the Paul brother stating that he changed his mind on the popular sci-fi movie.

"We don’t tolerate Interstellar slander," they wrote.

Oppenheimer tells the story of the real-life scientist J Robert Oppenheimer, who helped create the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II.

The Independent also reported that it is now the highest-grossing World War II film of all time, stealing the top spot from the 2017 action film Dunkirk.

Speaking to the outlet, Nolan hailed the three-hour biopic as "the biggest film [he's] ever made."

"The film I wanted to make couldn’t have been done smaller," Nolan said of the $100 million movie. "It’s not about money, it’s not about budget – the magnitude of the story is what attracted me to it.

"The fact that Oppenheimer and his fellow scientists couldn’t completely eliminate the possibility that they might set fire to the atmosphere and destroy the entire world, but still triggered the test - the idea of someone taking that risk on behalf of all of us and all our descendants," he continued before adding: "There’s nothing bigger than that."
