    Tenet, new Christopher Nolan joint.



    I can't tell what I just watched. I think I'm into it?

    Nothing involving time travel should look that boring.

    And referring to something as "it hasn't happened yet" is as cliche as saying "Not where. When."

    Well I think it looks very interesting and given Nolan's previous films I'm pretty much guaranteed to watch it in theaters when it comes out. Assuming it comes out in theaters. And assuming theaters still exist.

    Nolan seems hell bent on keeping the original release date of July 17, which is terrible

    Almost $5 billion in receipts and 34 Oscar noms. I'm guessing he has some leverage at this point in his career.

    This is honestly one of the best trailers I've seen in a long time. It's interesting and engaging but it gives away nothing. You know time travel guy has non-traditional time travel powers and he needs to stop something, that's it. They say they're stopping WWIII but not that WWIII. It doesn't tell you who the good or bad guys are, you don't even know if there are good or bad guys.

    Also I didn't realize until just now that John David Washington is Denzel Washington's son.

    Christopher Nolan has an obsession with time, doesn't he?

    Tenet seems neat and absolutely confusing to me.

    I don't blame him, after all it's the most powerful magic in the universe.

    That's boring? Compared to something like the delorean or the old H. G. Wells movie it's certainly low key, but I find the implications of this time travel highly intriguing.

    I'm not saying we are going to have an autocratic dystopia, but things keep happening that look like they come from an autocratic dystopia.

    Time travel is really hit or miss and subjective. I loved the time travel of Looper, but hated it in Endgame and Bioshock Infinite. Know lots of people feel differently.

    It's a Nolan movie. He could just email me the title and roughly when it hits theatres and I'm good. I'll show up. He's earned that.

    I’m almost always game for time travel, from Primer to Source Code to Time Traveler’s Wife to Harry Potter to Star Trek 4 to that Daybreak tv series with Taye Diggs. Just nomnomnom feed me more dumb non-science I love it!

    Endgame is amazing and the way they hand wave the time travel is the absolute best “look, we need this to make the plot go zoom” bullshit and I love it.

    Tenent is day one for me, like many of Nolan's movies. It reminds me of his version of the Van Damme Classic ,
    "Timecop."

    JCVD did an tv show practically based around the idea that timecop is better than looper and its a great gag the whole way through. He plays a version of himself, that while on movie sets, is also actually really a spy. He infiltrates a base, and he gets made, but everyone keeps calling him Philip like they know him.


    It's really just one of those 'one of a kind' type things that will disappear into the ether of the buffet of streaming available that would never ever be able to exist in any other way, like comrade detective.

    edit: Er, trailer thread you say:

    Except I'm not going to the theater right now, and he's heavily sticking to his guns about this coming out day and date without any possibility of changing.

    Hill of Freedom and Yourself and Yours, for my money the two greatest South Korean films of the last decade, are finally getting 'theatrical' releases 5 and 6 years after their festival premieres respectively. Of course they're actually streaming premieres with what's going on, but they're both excellent films worth looking out for. They're ostensibly minimalist comedies about relationships that play with narrative structure in interesting ways. Hill of Freedom is very funny with its almost random scene progression and language-barrier inhibited dialogue; Yourself and Yours is more mysterious, but is one of the best films about relationships both ending and beginning.

    Here's a new trailer for Yourself and Yours which smartly doesn't give away its central conceit:

    Jean-Claude Van Johnson was too good for this earth. And the lack of a second season is further proof that we are in the worst timeline.

    I really enjoyed it, but I think I'm good with just the one season.

    I can understand how comrade detective might be too expensive to make, but I can't believe we didnt get a second season where the villain is the invisible hand. It felt like a super obvious hook with that finale.

    The movie lost me when he starts drinking water that is, uh, stored in his "buddy". Said buddy has been dead for several days at this point. I dunno if the movie has a point and I don't care, because drinking water out of a rotting corpse is a large step beyond the level of gross that is at all useful to a message.

    Here's my summation of how powerful Harry Potter's performance was:

    Playing a surreal farting corpse who's life affirming advice for Hank is maybe we are all dying sacks of shit and all it'll take is one person to be okay with this and the whole world will laugh, sing, dance, and fart together as one and no one will be alone.
