Breaking News: I have watched Tenet for the first time.
Def liked it! The score was completely brilliant. Still feel a bit confused with everything going on and how it all adds up but I had a similar reaction when I first watched memento...which I adore now... so we will see. All the actors did a great job! Loved seeing Rob do his natural British accent. Branagh was a complete ham but adored it. Awesome to see a Black man as Nolan’s lead that had nothing to with any stereotype or his skin color. JDW crushed it with such a incredible physical performance. Only thing is I def had to put subtitles on, I really thought this was always overblown with all of previous Nolan films but for this one I needed it, would have been so lost without it.
Also, it was weird not seeing a new Nolan in theaters. : (
Wooooo I also finally watched Tenet and it's safe to visit this place again.
Fun movie. Poor writing. 4/5
EDIT: Just saw that Vader is writing for Roger Ebert's site? Congratulations! I can't believe how long it's been since I was a regular here. Feels like multiple lifetimes ago.
Thanks man! I've been lucky enough to do a few pieces over the years on Dunkirk, 2049, one on the Miyazaki influence on the Sequel Trilogy, in memoriam for Boseman, and recently my top ten. Still surreal.
