Am I missing some sort of in joke here or history I'm missing, or did you come in here out of nowhere just to say you were leaving because of your posting enemy.

Amazing

I dunno I didn’t feel like I needed to know or that it would be coherent. Humans have engaged in stupid arms races, wars, and climate destruction without any real rationale other than a pileup of complex power plays and prisoners dilemmas and it just became a race to plunder the past or something.

I think the story and motivations of the characters is complicated enough that it would have worked better in a book but I appreciate a movie that doesn’t just spoon feed the audience since it’s so hard to do exposition right. I just really like this Philip K Dick esque scifi where it’s “everything the same but one major thing is different” and how crazy the implications of that get. I just really really liked this movie which I can’t say I’ve said in a couple years.

Yeah Sator could have been a lot more interesting of a villain.

Even like thanos’s and the dark knight joker’s motivations have a twisted logic beyond just “well I’m hosed so gently caress everybody”

I thought the fire thing was pretty cool, it was kinda a neat planting thing to explain why he didn't die later in the movie when the car got blown up when he was inverted.

Niel definitely knows he’s going to die, he’s recruited by TP/Tenet in the future because that was essentially his “test” to enter the organization even though from Neils perspective that was the end of his timeline. The whole thing is that all the core members of Tenet must have done something that indicated they were willing to die for their tenets. Even if future TP didn’t hint at this, Neil would have known that his last event was a one way trip because of the whole way turnstiles work- if you don’t see yourself inverted/reverted you know you’re taking a one way trip.

Way of the Gun was awesome, plus it’s the only movie that does realistic injured gun handling stuff.

All of Nolan’s shootouts have way too much gunfire, few consequences, happen way too close and too little cover.

Strangely all the car accidents seem to have weight.

One theory I read that actually makes the motivations of future people make sense is that the device they sent back is part of a thing that would invert the earth itself which would reverse ecological collapse but would seriously gently caress things up coherence-wise so they have to erase the past to rewind the earth.

Yeah wouldn’t sators inverted car start getting colder every combustion cycle and eventually freeze and lock up if being driven at all aggressively?

Ignoring the whole inverted fuel with regular oxygen thing.

You can also argue some kind of quantum bullshit where knowing is like observing so you can change things only that are unknown to an observer but once someone knows how something happens it’s set in stone.

I like the “what happened happened but not if nobody knows it happened” it doesn’t totally make sense but it kinda makes everything almost work and everyone’s motivations make more sense.

Well it also lead to the trend in lovely movies where if the lead action man sucks at actually doing action (cough taken cough) you just cut around wildly and be really confusing with the camera to hide it

Yeah it wouldn’t be that hard, whenever you need more oxygen you just un invert, go to the oxygen/air compressor on all your expired tanks, and then take them back through the turnstile
