Too big a budget and trying to be too clever.

Not sure how you didn't at least enjoy Inception. Unlike anything else before it.

Saw tenet in an empty screen in Curzon, thought it was brilliant. Possibly my favourite Nolan film.

Edit: totally understand why people wouldn't like it, some of the dialogue is LOL but it's not about that imo

At the time I kind of did, but the more I thought about it the more it annoyed the shit out ot of me, its nonsense. Interstellar is even worse.
I turned off the trailer for for Curzon it was so annoying Laughing out loud

Cannot wait for this



The book is every kind of fucked up. Like real real bad stuff. I stumbled across it years ago on reddit after searching for ‘books like the first series of True Detective’. I’m surprised they’ve made into into a movie, I’d say it was un-filmable!
Anyway, out in Netters in a month

Noticed quite a few scenes from all the Tenet trailers were either altered or removed from the final version, but guess that happens all the time in post production.

Haven't seen Tenet yet but have always though Nolan films would be so much better if he let someone help with his screenplays - admire the ambition and scale of his films but the dialogue is often dreadful

I agree with this last bit. Re watched the dark knight and dark knight rises recently and the parts with Michael Caine and Bruce are just horrific. Often don’t even make sense

Heard a few people saying you couldn't hear half the dialogue in Tenet because of the overly loud sound track that plays over it

Dialogue in tenet was incredibly cringey.

Dunkirk was trash.

Worst of the lot.

Inception was amazing. Unsure how anyone could think otherwise

Christopher Nolan made one great film, The Prestige, most overrated director by a long shot

Soundtrack was too loud and didn't sound all that amazing at the showcase cinema I watched it in. Most of dialogue was understandable but certain scenes it was difficult to make out what they were saying. Even if I did hear it all I'd prob still be confused about what was going on.

Watched Tenet last night at IMAX. Agree with the dialogue, needed subtitles for sure.

Not sure how I feel about the film. Getting a bit bored of these overly complex film, but after reading some of the interpretations, I do appreciate the thought behind it.

I have to say I've enjoyed every Nolan film I've seen but I'm always left feeling a bit cold as well. For all their cleverness they are weirdly soulless, the puzzle conceit takes centre stage at the expense of the characters. Can you even imagine what a straightforward drama would be like directed by him?
