Tenet Arrives Home On Blu-ray For Safe Viewing

Tenet is finally making its arrival on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray so audiences can view the film in the safest way possible during a pandemic. I enjoyed this film for what it is but Tenet is not the film to risk your life during a pandemic.  I watched the film for the first time on a 43″ 4K TV.  It is as close to the theatrical experience that I am going to get for…

The Nolan Variations by Tom Shone

The Nolan Variations: The Movies, Mysteries, and Marvels of Christopher Nolan is the most in-depth look yet at the blockbuster auteur. Before I start this off, I want to stress my disappointment at seeing the Wachowskis get misgendered during the book’s introduction.  How this gets past the editors and into the final print is beyond me.  This is beyond infuriating! Nolan is in the category that very few filmmakers could ever hope to achieve.  James…

When most people think of extraction, it’s usually sending in covert agents to get someone out.  This isn’t so much the case with this film.  Not even by a long shot. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) has a particular set of skills that make him a dangerous person.  Granted, this also depends on who you are…

Tenet: An Open Letter to Christopher Nolan

It is not worth the cost of more lives by releasing Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Tenet in theaters during the rest of the year. We all want to save the art of going to the cinemas for a movie but it isn’t going to be like this.  Listen, I miss going to movie theaters but I’m not about to walk into a theater anytime soon.  Even if we have a universal policy of face masks at…

The evacuation of Dunkirk is one that has had a huge impact on the British.  If not for the evacuation, there’s no guarantee what would have happened if not for Operation Dynamo. It’s far more than just a British story. “It was a massive event that still has international significance, says Joshua Levine, author of Forgotten Voices of Dunkirk, and a historical consultant on the film.  “Everything that’s celebrated about World War II—in Britain, in…
