MOVIES WATCHED THIS WEEK

Tenet (2020)

“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.”

This felt like Inception on steroids as Tenet is one of Nolan’s most ambitious films. It had some original set pieces and great action like every other Nolan film with several wtf moments. R-Patt and Branagh gave solid performances with John David Washingtons feeling a bit uneven. He was fine during the action scenes as I could see him fronting an action series but there wasn’t much emotion from him when it was needed. My only other issue with the film is its clunky dialogue and excessive exposition. However, it is a movie immediately wanted to watch again, not just for the fun action but also to help understand what the hell was going on it certain parts. (4/5)


Killing Them Softly (2012)

“Jackie Cogan is an enforcer hired to restore order after three dumb guys rob a Mob protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse.”

Speaking about too much talking. I was so ready for everyone in this film to just shut and do something that I checked out early. This felt more like a side story to a better movie and we didn’t get much from anyone here that usually deliver pretty strong. Pitt, Jenkins, and Mendelson were all pretty bland much like this overall movie. (2.5/5)


Bodyguard (S1)

“A contemporary thriller featuring the Royalty and Specialist Protection Branch of London’s Metropolitan Police Service.”

Not a shabby little personal thriller with big-time stakes. Rob Stark played his troubled war veteran part really well and this kept me engaged through its short six-episode season. Some fun twists and turns with solid acting and action.
