You could correct dialogue issues directly just by amping up the centre channel, as long as the sound mix is discrete.

Is this worth a watch? Not sure if I should make a trip to the pictures or not

Tenet - Christopher Nolan's latest - John David Washington, Robert Pattinson

i went to see it today and i agree, i couldn't understand the dialogue alot of the time.

I did wonder if
at one point. I would not want to see again but 2 1/2 hours went by very fast.

Saw this last night at Odeon Luxe in iSense and loved it. Will need to watch it again though as I'm sure I missed so much.

The "big" sounds were sooo loud but fitted in well but the Mrs did mention about not getting all of the dialogue like a few other have said, but myself and two teenagers had no issues.

I thought this was good, if a little baffling in places - definitely feels like it would be more enjoyable on a second viewing.

The sound though.....I didn't necessarily think the dialogue was too lost in the mix - I just think it was too damn loud. I really wish I had taken earplugs. I suffer with tinnitus and this really set it off.

I remember Interstellar being unintelligible at times at the cinema, the music was so loud it drowned the voices out in places.

[pedant_mode] The Guardian doesn't have a paywall - likely just the need to log in.

Back on topic - sounds like we'll need to re-watch Tenet with subtitles enabled, subwoofer turned down and centre cranked up.

The pop up, pop up. You press the cross on the side to get rid of it. I've never seen a paywall Guardian piece.

Just seen advert again “even using the word can be good or bad” (to paraphrase)
But it’s only used once “in the field”? In India. Unless I missed it.

I wonder if there will be an earlier-than-normal release to digital for this or if they’ll hold out in the hope of repeat viewings in the cinemas? Must be an interesting balancing act to do given everything that’s going on as well as the bootleg copies available and some of the mixed reviews.

Just back from seeing this a second time. Completely different experience!

I saw it in IMAX on release day. Was a bit disappointed and a big reason for that was the sound mix. Until I got home and googled it I thought it was just my cinema.

Tonight when I saw it the dialogue was far, far clearer. Both I and my wife thought that. I even asked in the cinema after if something had been changed but the member of staff didn't know.

As for the film, having now seen it twice I find myself absolutely loving it! I actually even think you're meant to watch it twice to mirror the whole pincer plot device.

I'd really, really recommend a second viewing.

According to the wiki Budget was 200 million and as of September 7th: 20 million taken in the US and 132 million overseas, not good but i'm sure many will disagree.

Should have they released it now?

Cinemas are probably next to empty so doesn't surprise me. Myself and a friend normally go every single week but we're not going back to the cinema any time soon while there's virtually nothing on.

USA is practically shut down isn't it? Can see it doing OK in the UK and places with less Covid getting back to some degree of normality, but wouldn't be going to a cinema in America, I guess many might even be closed.

Yep me and other half did too. We are happy to return but nothing to see, may have to watch mutants soon!

I think with promotion the budget is closer to $300 million, but in a couple of weeks it's taken two thirds of that ( https://www.boxofficemojo.com/releas...40417/weekend/ ), and it's not like there will be a lot of competition over the next few months. It'll take money slowly but surely and will definitely more than make its money back. That's before they sell all the blurays and DVDs.
