Re: TENET - General Information/Discussion/Speculation

I like that take, but it's really not how I feel. The editing, music and overall directing of the last two minutes doesn't feel that way to me. Nolan is more joining in on the ideal of the righteous hero than he is being subversive about it. To me it is a great conclusion emotionnally but like most...

Re: TENET - General Information/Discussion/Speculation

Weird thread. The Dark Knight Rises is one of the most cynical blockbusters of all time. It ends with permanent condemnation of our social systems and law enforcement , but that there will be people fighting for change. Sure, that's a hint of hope, but only a glimmer. His last two movies have been ...

Re: Trumpocalypse Now

I'm not sure you took my correct meaning. I'm saying activism isn't about outrage at every statistic or new viral video of police brutality. Yes, you should stay informed. Yes, you should witness. And listen. And yes, you should act. But nobody's mental health improves by absorbing every bit of toxi...

Re: Coronavirus v Cinema: Dawn of Streaming

Polls are given too much credence. People tell you one thing and go on and do the opposite. Also, often people will answer the way they expect the questioner wants them to,i.e, in this case, that it's too dangerous right now to go to movie theaters. I'll never completely trust public polls again af...

Re: Trumpocalypse Now

The Majority Report mentioned a number of things that would need to happen for the US police to be reformed: - you stop giving the police surplus military equipment and take away the military equipment they have because it creates a sense among these departments that they are occupying forces and t...
