I braved the public to go see it last night, I'd say it was pretty damn good and give it a B/B+. If you didn't like Inception, then definitely don't see this one because it's convoluted as hell. I'd say Tenet was better than Intersteller.

The biggest problem I have with the movie isn't its fault, the audio was blown out at the theater. The explosions and action scenes sounded fantastic, but all of the dialogue sounds like it was underwater. :olol:

The problem I had with Inception is that it felt like an excellent sequel to a movie that was never made. They built this fantastic world that they barely explored before spending most of the movie trying to break the rules of it. I was thoroughly disappointed we couldn’t see the world explored and instead was stuck with what felt like an Ocean’s Eleven heist.

And Tenet is worse in terms of brevity — the action starts right away and the main character is jumping from location to location. I agree with that feeling about Inception and it's much more of the same in Tenet. Some characters don't even get names because everything moves so fast.

I feel like movies such as Tenet and Inception would do better as miniseries. Too much is packed into these epic movies without enough runtime to adequately make the movie work. Avatar could have been one of those, but the long screentime helped the film.

I'd be down with a Nolan-directed miniseries but I doubt he'll ever move over from movies. And unfortunately, I'm not sure whether his cinematic style would work across episodes. I think his movies work well because he has a time limit, so his work is dense with no wasted shots or filler. I'm not sure if Inception or Tenet would be as exciting had they been stretched across a few episodes.

It felt like his Batman movies were starting to run out of steam by the third one, but maybe that was due to factors outside his control.

I felt that way too - Dark Knight Rises felt like a whole hell of a lot of burnout affecting what could have been a great movie.

Apparently he went to a George Floyd protest as Borat in one scene and tries to meet Trump in another.
