I would only watch this in BFI IMAX, but Odeon are still closed with no bookable advance dates. I would prefer if it was delayed as I'm not that keen to go to the cinema right now.

As above, is it definitely staying on the 26th?

I shall go and see it for certain. Hell I don't even know what the film is about! Just that it's Nolan's new one. Think I prefer going in without even reading so much as a precis.

I'd like to see more films in IMAX but the one local to me shows them all in 3D which I'm not interested in.

Just had a look at Birmingham Broad Street and there is indeed 2D IMAX.

Off to see this, this afternoon.

In other news, does anyone else find this odd?

... on the list of things odd about Tom Cruise, that's fairly low.

Whole industry is looking at Tenet to see if it's not a flop and they can all start pimping their movies again. He's got Top Gun sitting pending release. Plus it's Nolan... Cruise will be up for a new Nolan picture same as everyone else. He's probably in the UK finishing up MI:7

The press have been asked not to judge this film on its box office takings as were obviously in strange times.

Quite sane for Tom. Isn't he normalising the trip, to encourage others to go?

Well I enjoyed it but I wouldn't say I understood it. Lots of thinking to do.

Enjoyed it, but its very complicated with multiple viewings needed and the sound mix is poor; some scenes you just cannot hear the dialogue!

Need to process further...

I had a hard time deciphering the dialogue amongst the overbearing audio track. This took the edge off a bit for me, as I felt like I missed some key dialogue throughout the film.

The first half of the film, I wasn't really enjoying what I was watching, in part due to the aforementioned dialogue issues, but once it clicked into place I got into it.

I will likely watch it again at the cinema, as once the story plays out, it should make for a better second viewing.

Excellent, as usual. Terrible sound editing for the vocals. Visually remarkable. And I’m none the wiser.

Wow everyone saying the same about the sound mix!

I saw it at an IMAX tonight and just thought they'd screwed up their sound system because the bass was insane. Seems like it's like that everywhere tho.

Still a bit mixed about the film. It needs a second viewing, and I thought better audio would help, but may just need to struggle through a second time.

Certainly Nolan's least satisfying for me, at this point...

Thought it was very good, if complex. I certainly had to work harder to follow this than Inception or Interstellar. I also suspect that the logic of the movie may fall apart under closer examination.

Similar to what others have said, the dialogue was tough to pick up at times. The score was excellent though, turns out that Zimmer was not missed.

Branagh and Pattinson were the acting highlights for me.



I feel that this is a movie that will really benefit from a second viewing but I’ll probably wait till it’s available on Blu-ray so I can have subtitles on.

8/10. Nolan’s the only director that could even attempt something as ambitious as this but it feels like a flawed masterpiece. Still, I’m probably just too dumb to understand it’s actually a bona fide classic on first viewing.
