Tenet, Christopher Nolan 2020 Film

Re: Tenet, Christopher Nolan 2020 Film

Yeah, I'm gonna see what the options are here. If they sell it to 25% and put multiple seats between people, this might be one of the rare films I'd consider that for. We'll see.

Re: Back to the future 2? Try to explain that

Time travel isn't real and creates unanswerable questions, so every film about it simply has to tell you how its time travel works, and you have to accept that premise. If this film had a different...

Yeah, exactly. And I think it's equally likely I'll regret that as it is someone else will take a flyer on him and he'll sabotage their AVG for a couple of weeks.

Yeah, that's basically been my issue, PW. I've dropped a lot of players that I wouldn't have dropped during a normal season, but at this point having a spot empty for several days is a pretty huge...

Wow, going straight online now, but with an extra fee. Seems reasonable, and a good experiment. Hope it does well so we see more of this:

The reliance on lots of practical effects is definitely one of the cooler things about Nolan's films.

"Do not go anywhere" sounds like "unnecessary," addressed here:


Sometimes the place they "go" is "understanding the character better." If it feels pointless, maybe it's because you're treating...

I mean, with this logic, why show anything? Why not just say "the Hobbits went to Mt. Doom"? It's different to see something depicted.

Re: Do TV shows have too many unnecessary subplots compared to movies?

Because he doesn't know until he looks?
