Movies: General Discussion

A few bits and pieces.

Tenet : watched this recently. It’s very absorbing until the second half at which point it just becomes a technical exercise. Nolan’s habit of using a plot hook eventually fell flat this time. Obviously beautifully done but ultimately left me empty the next day. Good enough to watch though…

Palm Springs : another Ground Hog Day rip-off but SO GOOD! I would even say it’s a “spiritual sequel”, although technically not. Funny and insightful. 10/10

Netflix has dropped a bunch of projects for 2021.

One that caught my eye was Don’t Look Up by Adam McKay who is one of my favourite directors of all time. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Timothée Chalamet, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep and Matthew Perry.

I’m pretty psyched about anything with Cate Blanchett that one.
