>>138791130sickening bassmuffled dialoglaughable linesridiculous directionBRAVO NOLAN
Was this movie a mess or am I retarded? I was not able to keep up at all
all the dialogue sounds like it went through the zalgo text generator until the last maybe 25% of the movie
>>138791509it's not youit's shit
scientist lady dropping "try not to think too much" WINK WINK jesus christ so infuriating.
You thought it was an hour too long and wondered why a man would fight and shoot a gun at himself at the airport
Why does Nolan like crashing planes so much?
>>138791544>Laura: No small talk. Nothing that can reveal who we are or what we do.>The Protagonist: I thought I was here to find out what we do.>Laura: You’re not here for “what”, you’re here for “how”. “What” is your department. That’s not my business.>The Protagonist: Well, to do what I do, I need some idea of the threat we face.>Laura: As I understand it, we’re trying to prevent World War Three.>The Protagonist: Nuclear holocaust?>Laura: No. Something worse.
>>138791811uggo on the right getting mogged
>>138791915Nolan can't seem to write believable lines even if you put a gun to his head. Is he autistic?
>>138791419This describes everything he's made post-Insomnia besides the Prestige
It insists upon itself.
>yfw Nolan just made a $200 million dollar Lifetime Original Movie with time wibbly wobbly shit
Is it more enjoyable on the rewatch when you kind of know what is going on going into it? I think the movie being gibberish for the first 90 minutes probably didn't help me.
Imagine how good this movie would be without the bullshit subplot with debecki and Branaugh that somehow was allowed to become main plot. It felt like a Japanese porn plot. More cool fun stuff with time reversal and make the MC not a simp.
>>138791419>laughable linesIncluding "Including my son"?
>>138794483yesbut there's many many moreI don't yet know if TENET will become meme worthy as it's just unpleasant to watch, but there's a lot of raw material
This movie seems like Nolan wanted to make Inception 2 but at least had the courtesy to not actually make Inception 2, so he used another concept thats a little mind bending in the same way Inception was.
I literally just got home from seeing this and apparently I'm too smooth brain to understand it.Can someone explain this shit?
>>138791130Just got done seeing it in IMAX a little while ago. 6/10 maybe. Could not understand any of the words anyone was saying. Yeah I know it's on purpose from the sound mix, it's still shitty.The inversion stuff is just used for action scenes there's not really any mystery or anything to figure out about the plot after you finish watching it.A lot worse than inception.All I could think during the movie, and afterwards, is that's like a film version of that Kane & Lynch 2 game where it's all loud and there's distortions and cutting from scene to scene real fast.
>>138793883>Imagine how good this movie would be without the bullshit subplot with debecki and Branaugh that somehow was allowed to become main plot.this 100%. that shit was so awkward. i don't really want a domestic abuse subplot in my comfy movies, nolan, i had to live thru enough of that as a child thanks.

Am I retarded for not understanding why was the painting so significant for that woman?
Zero direction, zero characterization, zero lore, zero action, zero set pieces, zero everything except music. Nolan made the entire movie so he could film the hallway fight scene in the airport.
>>138796170Kek, the dialog needs to be ran through a psytrance music producer or a idm music producer, then it will sound like what you described
>>138796195In the future, the protagonist (Denzel) painted the picture and had sent 2 of them back in time.
lads help me i'm a brainlet1. who was the beret dude and who was he actually with?2. were the people in the future trying to destroy the past? or what was the deal here?
god I can't wait to re-watch this at home through my receiver's "enhance dialog" setting
wouldn't getting shot with an inverted bullet heal the path of the bullet as it went backwards in your body?
>>138791212N = NggerI did it reddit.
>>138792607>the movie being gibberish for the first 90 minutes probably didn't help me.How was it gibberish? >the protagonist starts out as some kind of special law enforcement >gets recruited for Tenet after "dying">gets told to track down Sator from michael caine or indian lady because he's trying to end the world>>138796362The only person trying to end the world was the big bad: Andrei Sator. What "beret dude"? Do you mean the guy who leads all the soldiers that show up? He's working for Tenet, just like The Protagonist and Neil.
>>138792552>left and right are reversedno they're not, chris, if you point to the left your reflection points to the left as well
how does nolan manage to decimate the midwits every fucking timeits almost like you fucks dont actually enjoy movies or something
Is there a way to watch it backwards?
I loved it.
>>138796362They aren't trying to destroy the past. They want to reverse the direction of time because they are at the end of civilization and the world sucks because of pollution. Reversing time will just kill every past person because of the air thing I suppose.
>>138796413Only the bullet is inverted. You're normal so it's just like any regular projectile passing through.
>>138791130I enjoyed it, but it felt kind of like a tech demo for the concept or something. Like he came up with the idea of the backwards time thing, and built a fairly generic script around it. Neat, but it won't be remembered the way inception is. Also it was way too hard to hear what anyone was saying.
>>138791509Can we be real here? It was a confusing movie. I got the jist of the whole plot and motivations but the first hour felt like a blur of details and I got took me the next half hour to process. It's been a long time since I've been confused at a movie that wasn't arthouse or something.
My only major confusion is how did the subplot with healing Kat work?Maybe they explained it with some of the muffled dialog, but it seems that they just inverted her with the machine, but then had to go way far to a different machine to un-invert.Couldn't they just wait a while and reuse the existing machine. And how is it supposed to heal a bullet wound? It didn't reverse her getting shot, since she still has the scar.
>>138796564I don't get it
>>138791821If you think about it, from both perspectives the other one had started the fight and they didn't know they were the same person.
Someone explain why they couldn't change the past. Everything that we saw inverted people do happens again in reverse later. So why?
>>138796564This doesnt fucking apply here. You are the midwit
>>138797000it so clearly does
>>138796887My guess on what was happening is that because Kat wasn't injured before getting shot, she was healing because they were going backwards through time. >>138796973They kinda did, when you think about it. The first time through, they were in one place and they were doing different things the second time. For example, if you're fighting version B of yourself while being version A then become version B later, there's still a difference.
Recycled shit. I rewatched memento and it also uses inversion. Also fuck Nolan.
They shudv had a scene we're people take a shit backwards.
>>138797082Continued: What the person travelling experiences is the most important thing of all. At the very end, The Protagonist is holding back tears because he knows what's going to happen to Neil but Neil had already known The Protagonist for a long time because he had had come from the future. Do you get it? It appears sad and short lived from our perception of what's happening but Neil is actually a veteran.
>>138791821He was unloading the gun. He was only reverse shooting at him from past N's perspective. From masked N's perspective, he was intentionally missing, then disabled the gun at the end.
>>1387911309.5. Battle scene at end was awesome especially when you see it twice. Its chaotic as fuck but you get it by 15 seconds. A guy gets crushed by debris falling up after a rocket blew a building up
>>138796554No, it is the reflections right hand though
>>138791509All the time travel shit was pretty easy to follow. What's confusing is all the character motivations. The movie horribly explains who everybody is and what they're even doing there.
>>138796973You cant change YOUR PAST but can change YOUR FUTURE relatively speaking
>>138791130that it was the worst nolan by far
>>138797371>What's confusing is all the character motivationsEveryone working against Sator is someone who doesn't want the world to end and everyone working with Sator is a dumb goon being paid by Sator who has no idea what he has planned. There. Everyones motivations explained.
The bullet holes made no sense. I get why everything that goes through the machine becomes inverted in time and moves backwards, but why would that apply to other things like the bullet holes? How is the bullet hole able to put itself back together in normal forward time when it wasn't put through the machine?
Protag shudv fucked himself like in that Ethan Hawke movie.
>>138797465He would annihilate his anus
>>138797371The time travel works because the events are tied to strong visual cues and set piece moments that remind you what is happening at which point in time.The character motivations are mainly based on dialogue which is obtuse and poorly written. And you can't even hear half of it over the terrible sound mixing.
>>138797440...their entropy becomes inverted.
Who /AREPO/ here?
>>138791811the only joke in the movie was the premise
>>138797363The reflection doesn't have a "right hand", it's a reflection of your left hand and it's pointing left, just like you
Be honest, is this worth seeing?
>>138797440Well, the bullets can only be inverted because they're irradiated so maybe the bullet irradiates on impact, which is why a bullet hole can be reversed.>>138797542Three of those are obvious but who are Arepo and Rotas? Did they appear in the movie?
>>138791130some cool beats
>>138797552If you raise your left hand to high five your mate needs to raise his right hand. Your mirror reflection raises “his” right arm to high five you as well, as in if you were to assume his body your right hand would be up
>>138797585The inverted time shit is pretty cool. Everything else about the movie is terrible. It's worth a watch but definitely don't pay money for it.
>>138797585I watched a shitty camrip and I thought it was amazing. There's honesty for you. I consider it as good as Inception was and that's one of my most rewatched movies, next to stuff like Lord of the Rings.
>>138797600I dunno man that palindrome square is 2500 years old
>>138797529Let me help them. You have bullets with reverse entropy and bullets that are inverted in time. Reverse entropy bullets flow normally in time but react reverse to stuff. They get cold instead of hot when shot
>>138797585if you want evidence that this civilization is nearly out of ideas
>>138797600Rotas is the name of Sator's company
>>138791130very fire, bro, dope ass beats
>>138797610Your reflection is oriented towards you. You're basically saying that if you turn around, the stuff that was on your left is now on your right. That's just how orientation works.
>>138797717Oh, nice. I didn't pick up on that. I swear the word Arepo is used. It might have been during one of the discussions about paintings.
does anyone have a webm of sator's body falling on the boat deck railing?
>>138797757Tomas Arepo is the painter of the fake Goya who Kat insinuates Sator had killed after he bought the fake.i did all my watching on the shitty koreasub version, does anyone know if the top camrip on pirate bay is legit? i want to rewatch it with marginally better quality and sound
>>138797600AREPO is the painter who made the fakes
>>138797626lol this one's much worse than Inception
How do you drive a boat is the sea going backwards or is the boat going backwards?
>>138791886>Why does Nolan like crashing planes so much?If you could, wouldn't you too?
>>138791811I almost walked out of the theater after this line
>>138797948I think the boat is normal, but the 3 are inverted so it looks like it's going backwards to them.
>>138797585Worth seeing if you like Nolan. The action is quite a step up from Dark Knight (CQC choreography was goofy in TDKR imo) Visuals are great, soundtrack is great. Like everyone else is saying, the voice mixing is a little fucked, but I was able to discern the dialogue for the most part
>>138796011>this 100%. that shit was so awkward. i don't really want a domestic abuse subplot in my comfy movies, nolan, i had to live thru enough of that as a child thanks.Nolan's default state for wives/girlfriends is "dead" so give him some credit for him evolving his style
the downsides are washington being "ok", and the dialogue being hard to understandeverything else is solid, 9/10 overall
>>138797846It's all shit. Wait for a webdl or something
>>138796195>Am I retarded for not understanding why was the painting so significant for that woman?She works in art, and authenticating art piecesShe authenticated a piece that her husband then went on to purchase at an extremely high price, and it turned out to be a worthless counterfeit. After she and her husband separated, he held the piece as leverage over her because he could expose her as either fucking up at her job, or fraudulently certifying fake. It's psychological blackmail material.
I really liked the time machine mechanics on this one, they were very fresh. For example the don't enter the machine if you dont see yourself on the other side bit
>>138792552this can't be real
>>138796195Arepo got close to Kat, and conned her into believing that the Goya painting he had given her was genuine, and she appraised it at ten million dollars. After Sator buys it, he finds out that it is a fake. He has Arepo killed for his insolence and holds onto the painting as leverage over Kat. If he reveals that it is a fake to the police, Kat would be prosecuted and lose control over their son and go to prison. Kat tells Protagonist that she didn't betray Sator on purpose, she just made a mistake, but Sator "can't conceive of failure, only betrayal" because he is a psycopath.
>>138797585yes 100%, in a theater
>>138797739what u see in the mirror is not how someone would perceive you, therefore its not a true reflection, unless you reverse the mirror
i didnt care at all about that lady and her son
>>138798336why were they trying to bring her into the fold or whatever?
>>138798427yeah, I don't get why denzel jr was simping so hard for that lankey bitch.
>>138798427Good thing you aren't The Protagonist, then. There's only like four characters to care about in the movie.>the protagonist>neil>kat>kat's sonI don't even know the name of the Time Goon who leads the final mission but he just feels like any other soldier.
>>138797585Only if you like very, very, very, very bad movies
>>138798427I didn’t either but I want an inverted diebecki (whatever her name is) to repeatedly spit in my mouth
>>138797610He doesn't have a body, he's a reflection. Your lizard brain is making assumptions about the reflection like it's living in a voluminous world and has a different orientation from yourself. If you put a mirror on the floor and pointed into it, then you're pointing down, but your reflection is pointing up. Woah, magic!
>>138798591imagine shitting in reverse
>>138796992I understood it, it looked pretty, not upset that I saw it, but it's a mess. Think about it logically... the reverse causality is idiotic. The bullet hole should not be there before the bullet passes through... retarded. If it worked that way if you were ever shot by a reverse bullet your whole existence would be erased.
>>138791886he's a boomer obsessed with 9/11
>>138798726imagine if he did a 9/11 movie, i wonder if he would rebuild an actual twin tower
>>138798166So you enjoyed the terrible ending where instead of the two dudes killing Branagh using some time travel fuckery we get a lame scene where his wife shoots him instead?
>>138798623>all I have for you is a word... Pavel. It’ll open some of the right flight plans, and some of the wrong ones as well.
>>138798759>>138798726Fun fact: Robert Pattinson was in such a movie and I went and saw it for some reason. It was called Remember Me. I guess I liked Pattinson even back then. Probably because he was in Harry Potter and then Twilight.
>>138791212>Nolan starts and ends with N
>>138798780>the terrible ending where [half of the ending]yea it was fine
>>138798567Is that a Peaky Blinders reference?
>>138798623why does Nolan love shilling for glows?
>>138798501>>138798528>>138798528The Protagonist is shown from the beginning to be driven, but he has a huge flaw: he's compassionate, a quality which is at odds with his greater mission. He tries to save innocents wherever possible even if it might ultimately be a lesser good. At the opera siege, he risks the mission to save the audience from the bombs. When he hears his team were all slaughtered, he weeps. He specifically demands that no bystanders be hurt in the 747 hijacking. He protects Kat when it would be expedient to just let her die. At the end, he'd rather Neil not continue on to his inevitable death, even if they did just save the world.Letting her handle Sator at the end accomplishes two things: it allows Priya to perform the mental gymnastics necessary to not kill her because she can be trusted, and gives them a delaying tactic so Sator doesn't kill himself immediately.
>>138798873no I was referring to bringing in her initially, why do the painting heist? solely to get closer or have somebody inside?
>>138798944To get closer, so that she would give him an introduction to Sator, yeah.
