Re: Tenet - Box Office Discussion/Speculation

Dune is a film that I think will rely a lot on the domestic box office because I don't see too much world wide potential here like there could be for WW84 or Tenet in comparison.

Re: ⊃∪∩⪽ (2020)

For me, BR2049 is his only film that truly works in the vein of his ambitious worldbuilding coupled with a mysterious plot (that he’s done with films like Incendies, Prisoners and Arrival). Typically he has a habit of wrapping things up way too neatly that it massively undercuts everything set up be...

Re: ⊃∪∩⪽ (2020)

Wonder Woman 1984 is delaying its release again, this time from Oct. 2 to Dec. 25 as the U.S. box office struggles to recover amid the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic. The shift doesn’t impact the Dec. 18 date for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, which Warner Bros. is releasing on behalf of Legendary. Fr...

Re: Mank (2020)

What a dumbass take to say Fincher's become stale after Zodiac. That is when he has become one of the most interesting filmmakers shooting in digital currently. Zodiac, TSN, Dragon Tattoo, and Gone Girl are all incredible films and some of his best work (Zodiac being one of the best films of the 21s...

Re: Tenet Reviews/Reactions [Possible SPOILERS]

Fury Road barely made a profit. Regardless, obviously movies have different levels of accessibility and general interest, but I don't think it's cool to make value judgements about the general audience because they're not into Heneke or Kiarostami or Jarmusch or whatever. Some folks here keep blami...

Re: Tenet Reviews/Reactions [Possible SPOILERS]

Fury Road is great but its definitely a pretty straight forward and accessible movie considering its basically a 2 hour car chase action movie lol. Kinda hard to not be entertained watching it as just a surface level action movie And yes, many general audiences like very simple minded entertainment....

Re: Tenet Reviews/Reactions [Possible SPOILERS]

"good cinema that is also a box office hit" tends to be very accessible and fun movies like Mad Max Fury Road or Jurassic Park. Its not going to be conceptually complex or heady movies no matter how great they are. Blade Runner 2049 and Children of Men are great films that weren't financial hits. So...

Re: Tenet User Reviews/Reactions [Possible SPOILERS]

Haven't seen ton of writing about what the movie actually doing, particularly in its formal interests and how Nolan has been slowly streamlining certain methods since Inception. I gather there will be more interesting writing once more people see it but i stumbled upon this on letterboxd piece by N...
