PAPA NOL∀N'S TENƎꓕ | August 26 internationally. September 2 "in select US cities" | 75% on RT after 228 reviews

Recommended Posts

Things are getting better internationally, the Chinese B.O is on fire right now, Tenet should’ve been released in cinemas OS early and then, three months later, via VOD domestically.

Fuck, I thought it was just a problem with the speakers. I swear every Nolan film has had this problem.

this is actually why dunkirk is his best reviewed movie, because none of the dialogue matters.

Same here. Scenes with heavy dialogue were regularly in noisy environments.

Does Nolan just have ears that function differently than the rest of us? How can this keep happening and especially how can it be as bad as it seems to be here.

I found this to be a huge problem with the IMAX preview so if it affects the movie as well that's a bit concerning.

No, just the films since 2010. Sound design has become his biggest flaw as a director in my view.

Nolan is if nothing else, very hard-headed when it comes to certain things, and sound mix is one of them.

 

Inception sound mix would be a welcome respite honestly compared to some of his later stuff, because that one it was only Ken Watanabe's lines about the damn carpet where I was like "huh." Everything after that was pretty manageable. Doesn't help that the bass thumping in the scores have also gotten louder.

I feel like I'm the only who doesn't really care about the sound mixing. I really only ever found it to be a problem with Interstellar.

Well, as mentioned by Coolio, it didn't really matter in Dunkirk, but there were certainly lines I couldn't make out the first time or two. Usually Tom Hardy or Mark Rylance.

 

But given how Tenet seems to be very exposition heavy, that's gonna be a problem given how many people seem to be walking away kind of confused.

Seems like home video with subtitles might be a better way to watch this movie, which is hilarious for a director who wants people to watch his movies on huge screens.

The first hour has multiple insanely bad sound mixing instances over heavy exposition dumps that just make it impossible to hear, but after that 1st hour I didn’t notice it and could understand everything else. It definitely takes you out of the movie to start a little though which is a problem.

Taking two risks if I go see this in theater:

 

Finding a theater that fucked up the sound mix specifications so it might be intelligible

 

and oh yeah, getting the rona.

Yeah, not worth it. The only great IMAX theater in my state with properly calibrated sound is shutdown. Helps make the decision to stay home a very easy one!

Unhinged $1.4m = Tenet should be able to top at least $5-6m opening day, maybe even challenge $10m.

Mine is also not showing signs of opening soon, although the museum itself is open. Not sure what I'll do.

I would say to stay away from LieMAX. Probably better off with a Dolby Atmos auditorium. Or just wait for home video.

There's an IMAX Laser auditorium which is pretty comparable to Dolby Cinema. 

 

But ideally I'd find a mostly empty showing if I did decide to go.
