I suppose so? Then again, he gave 2 and a half stars to The Prestige, The Dark Knight Rises, and Interstellar, and just 3 stars for Dunkirk (which makes him somewhat of an outlier for that film). 2 stars for Tenet is indeed mildly worse, but then again, Nolan's more of a known quantity now - harder for him to impress, easier for others to write-off (with reason, or not).HorrorBiz wrote: ↑August 26th, 2020, 10:25 pmOuch. Michael Phillips has been generally positive about Nolan's work, so that's sort of telling that he only gave it 2 stars.MaxContract wrote: ↑August 26th, 2020, 5:18 pmRotten incoming:

Seems to be a lot of anxiety in here in general for a film scoring in the mid-80s on Rotten Tomatoes with 100 reviews. When all is said and done, I expect the film to finish up in the low-80s or the mid-70s, where it will be in good company alongside Batman Begins, Interstellar and The Prestige. Nothing really to write home about there. I do think it's a more subtly complex, less accessible film for audiences - more along the lines of Dunkirk. So I wouldn't be surprised to see it skew slightly lower on user-metrics like IMDB.
Having seen the film, I have some additional (non-spoiler) thoughts about its reception, but in order to avoid cluttering the page with what is essentially a ramble, I've hidden the text below.
