Idk why but, to me, JDW holding the teacup while walking with the briefcase is funny.

Kinda weird the EW issue just dropped out of nowhere. I mean, Total Film teased their TENET feature for weeks...

*and crying for better-quality scans*

Damn it. I was worried that they won’t be able to record any orchestral parts because of social distancing but then I thought Nolan’s scores are usually recorded way ahead of time and guess what? They didn’t get to record with an orchestra.

It’s gonna be interesting to hear what they came up with. Even Hans Zimmer resorted to this method for SpongeBob and possibly other movies as well.
Not able to read the scans yet, but they are releasing the movie without an score composed by an orchestral!!! This sounds terrible. I big key to any movie being good is the scores, but I think music has been an even bigger part of Nolan's film. Imagine "Inception" without Zimmer's great score. What are they doing instead? A bunch of synthesizers? This has me worried about the film.

They’re recording musicians in their homes individually and engineering them together. Also, pretty weird to knock electronic elements considering so much of Inception and Dunkirk are electronic. It’s not optimal, but I’ve assumed this for months.

Also: the prologue is very electronic anyway, so this makes sense.

That sounds like a heavily compromised vision to me. :(

Just to mix it up a bit, does anyone feel that Tenet will have a scene that is as great as No Time for Caution in Interstellar or when Hardy shoots down the enemy plane near then end of Dunkirk?

Those are two great scenes in cinema history as far as I'm concerned, with No Time for Caution being my absolute favorite scene of all time. But, what are your thoughts - do you think Tenet will have a single scene as great?

I looked closely at the photo on the page with Pattinson and the opera house and Nolan said "[John David] is playing an operative who is known by the name 'Protagonist'. Tenet is the name of the organization into which the 'Protagonist' gets inducted."

I also feel like this is really unfortunate. To be fair though I know next to nothing about music, so maybe they can compose a great score with no orchestra?

I mean, every Nolan movie has at least one scene that really hits me or wows me. No doubt there is going to be stand out moments.

Listen to the great scores for Hereditary and Midsommar by the phenomenal Haxan Cloak. Most of them are electronic.
