Published

Tenet is a 2020 action-thriller and spy-fi film written and directed by Christopher Nolan, who produced it with Emma Thomas.

So The plot follows a secret agent (Washington) as he manipulates the flow of time to prevent World War III. Nolan took more than five years to write the screenplay after deliberating about Tenets central ideas for over a decade.

So, Tenet is yet to release on September 18, 2020. Though delayed time and time again due to COVID-19, most critics have already seen it. As it has hit the big screen over 70 countries. There has been a lot of controversies around it, as people and critics seem to find it quite polarizing. But after all, it’s Christopher Nolan. It’s his signature to make controversial and polarizing movies. But let’s read what the critics had to say…

 

IMDb- 7.9/10

Tenet

via- No Film School

“Armed with only one word, Tenet, and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.”

 

Rotten Tomatoes- 74% (Tomatometer), 77% (Audience Score)

Tenet

“A visually dazzling puzzle for film lovers to unlock, Tenet serves up all the cerebral spectacle audiences expect from a Christopher Nolan production.”

 

Times Of India- 4/5 Stars

Mixed reviews

via- Los Angeles Times

“The film’s screenplay keeps underlining and explaining its layered plot about technology that can reverse time. Thankfully, it does so with stunning cinematography (Hoyte Van Hoytema) and action-packed scenes that are executed with a natural flair and finesse. The idea of going back in time where everything moves in reverse, creates a visually appealing imagery. And the original background score (Ludwig Göransson) is so unique and immersive that it builds just the right amount of urgency and tension.”

 

The Guardian- 5/5 Stars

“Go with it, and Christopher Nolan’s high-concept action romp will leave you ripping off your face mask for air. Even as you wonder what it was all about”

 

Empire- 4/5 Stars

Tenet

via- Hollywood News

 

“The blams come thick and fast. Tenet, in fact, might be Christopher Nolan’s blammiest film yet. BLAM! A terrifying thing just happened. BLAM! A shocking moment of revelation. BLAM! Here’s a speedboat. (There really is a massive blam accompanying an otherwise ordinary shot of two people on a speedboat.)”

 

Some user reviews from Metacritic- 7.7/10 (Average)

A perfect 10-

“Tenet is Christopher Nolan’s Magnum Opus. On the technical side, few films in history have anything like the action of this film. Every Scene is Magic, and you will think, “How making this is even possible?”. And that “No Green Screen” rule is paying off.”

Also, a Zero-

“Probably the worst movie I’ve ever seen in a theatre. This review would contain spoilers if I had any clue what the hell was going on. So I’ll keep this short and sweet. The music is so loud you can’t hear the dialogue and every other person had an accent which doesn’t help when you are fighting to hear the words.”

So, here are the extreme polarizing reviews. Now, it’s time for you to decide if you’ll be watching Tenet or not. Because I definitely will be!

The fate of Marvel’s She-Hulk series on Disney+ appeared to be in doubt for the longest time. But we heard a few days ago that the show had landed its first producer, with TV helmer Kat Coiro signing on to direct the pilot and several episodes. Brace yourself, because in terms of moving Jennifer Walters’ adventures into the streaming world, the biggest step so far has been made.

In the eponymous Disney+ Marvel series Tatiana Maslany will play She-Hulk, with the original Hulk Mark Ruffalo and She-Hulk producer Kat Coiro confirming media reports from earlier in the day.

Maslany is best known for leading the sci-fi thriller Orphan Black, available on Netflix in India, in which Maslany played multiple clones of herself during the five-season run of the show. Among several other honours, she received an Emmy for her performance. Maslany will presumably play She-Hulk alongside Ruffalo, although the involvement of the latter is still unconfirmed.

Beyond Orphan Black, Maslany has played roles in the long-running family drama Heartland, the World Without End 2012 miniseries, the Woman in Gold 2015 biopic film, the Other Half 2016 romantic drama, the Stronger 2017 biopic drama, the Destroyer 2018 neo-noir crime film, and the Pink Wall 2019 romantic drama. Maslany is part of the lead cast for Perry Mason, HBO’s period drama, which is renewed for its second season.

In the comics, She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, a prosecutor who receives the abilities of the Hulk after her cousin Bruce Banner gets a blood transfusion. As She-Hulk, she becomes an intelligent and managed version of the Hulk. Thanks to Mark Ruffalo ‘s Smart Hulk in Avengers: Endgame, something MCU viewers have already experienced. When it comes to adaptations, Marvel has always been open to tweaks.

Other cast and storey specifics for She-Hulk are not yet disclosed. Also, it is planned that the series will start production in early 2021. It will demonstrate the legal battles of Jennifer Walters as an attorney, and also fight crime as a superhero. Mark Ruffalo is also said to make an appearance in the show in his MCU role as Bruce Banner / Hulk. The Marvel series is speculated to air at the end of 2021 or 2022 straight on Disney Plus.

There are various series being produced by Marvel and She-Hulk is part of them.
