Just watched the new Tenet trailer:

I think that trailer actually diminished my interest in the film. Seems too gimmicky. Like they want to do another Inception but there's just something off about it.

I agree with Apt (I know!) here. That trailer diminished my interest. The whole "inversion" thing reminds me too much of INCEPTION and it feels like he's chasing replication of that movie with a different angle/gimmick. Down to Pattinson doing his Best Tom Hardy-In-INCEPTION imitation.

And after hating INTERSTELLAR and being lukewarm on DUNKIRK, I'm not all in on Nolan's stuff anymore.

I could be wrong and this could be great, but as it stands I'm "meh"

It feels like he came up with this inversion concept but has no idea what story to hang off it. It's not like the two trailers we've seen are teasers that aren't telling us anything, especially that one: we've got loads of info, it just doesn't seem to point to anything coherent.

He does seem to love "time" stuff too....as Memento, Inception, Interstellar, the Prestige, Insomnia and this new one all have it as part of the gimmick.

That's a REALLY accurate analogy. Well done sir. Now I gotta go re-watch PAPRIKA!

My work here is done.

Having rewatched Paprika recently I am regretting that my copy of Millenium Actress is in England and I am not.

Hellboy (2019).

I was pleasantly surprised. Based on the reception and the poor reviews I was expecting it to be terrible, but I enjoyed it well enough. I thought the guy from Stranger Things did a fine job in the roll. Nothing exceptional, but Hellboy (2019) is a fun movie.

Looks like a standard enough Ferrell parody

Cate Blanchett confirmed!..yowzers! I really want this to be good. It has Chernobyl pedigree involved, but it also is being directed by Eli Roth *yuck. I will just be observing and seeing how this comes together.

Watched the movie Us. It was really creepy. You should watch it too, if you want to be creeped out.

Jordan Peele can comfortably take his place as one of the new masters of horror. Who new the guy from Comedy Channel - Key & Peele was so twisted. Although thinking about it, there were some freaky-deaky skits on the show.

Watched A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood on Saturday night - I think we may be set off on a Tom Hanks-a thon.

Lovely film. It was exactly what I expected of it and was not an iota less enjoyable for it. Hanks is perfect as Fred Rogers.
