Amen. I know ahead of time I'll need at least 2 viewings before watching his movies.

I'm not the Nolan expert some of you are, but how do you argue that Inception is "bad" Nolan? It's one of the most "Christopher Nolan movies" ever.

I watched Tenet a second time last night. It is better the second time around when I understand what is going on. But I will not be watching a third time

Inception is an incredibly boring movie. Just watch Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors instead.

Ok, after sleeping on this for a night:

I watch and read a lot of stuff on time travel theory, so I'm not the best person to speak to this because all that has done is made my feeble brain confused. But, the future people want to destroy the current day people because we fucked up the planet. At least according to Sator. Also, the future people believe the in the theory that changing their past wont' affect their present, right? Like, if I kill your grandfather in the past, that won't make you disappear in the present. With that being said, wouldn't that apply to everything? So if they destroy the past, their planet being fucked up in the future isn't going to change.

yeah, after an initial viewing and then reading up afterward, a second viewing would be good. but also, i'm not super motivated to do so - maybe because i don't really care about the characters?

all the paradoxical stuff, if thought about too much, takes you out of it for sure. which is a problem with all time travel movies really, best not to overthink and enjoy the attempt.

as far as the future's plot to change the past, i tried to think of it as a desperate attempt to save their present, so they're willing to give it a go even though it could fuck up their present even more, or not have the desired effect at all.

I think Nolans ego got the best of him on this one.

Like, why make a movie so fucking complicated and ridiculous? Why continue to bury the dialogue under mountains of music?

I love Nolan. Inception is one of my favorite movies, but this was just a bloated ....something.

I dont know. Ill watch it again but someone needs to maybe tell Nolan to just calm down a bit.

I liked the different (possibly fresh?) take on time travel... that you have to travel backward through it, instead of travel instantly to a point in time.

Isn't this how it works in Primer? They just spend the time hiding in a box instead of running around backwards

I can’t recall. That’s why I stopped short of giving Nolan credit for the idea.

Inversion and temporal pincers are still fresh and cool ideas.

The idea in Primer is similar, yes. You have to wait in the charged box the amount of time you'd like to go back. You go from point B to A instead of A to B.

Primer was honestly 1,000x better than Tenet.
