The end of Tenet is anything but a happy ending

The end of “Tenet” is anything but a happy ending!

Topics such as climate change resonate in “Tenet”

Opinion (with spoilers!)

Opinion (with spoilers!)

If you just accept the end of “Tenet” as it is presented, then you can speak of a happy ending with a clear conscience: The protagonist (John David Washington) not only warded off the danger from the future, he actually was even who actually started the whole mission by traveling back in time in the future (the German language simply does not have enough tenses to express everything correctly and precisely in “tenet”).

a happy ending

Sure, Neil (Robert Pattinson) sacrifices himself. But that’s not really bad either, after all, from the protagonist’s perspective, he still has his whole life ahead of him. Ergo the allusion to the classic film “Casablanca” when Neil, shortly before he throws himself into death, talks about the beginning (and not just the end) of a wonderful friendship …

So that ends well, starts well, all right? Regardless of whether forwards or backwards?

So that ends well, starts well, all right?

One step further it’s getting very dark!

But what exactly did the protagonist prevent with his commitment? You could imagine the whole story of “Tenet” from the perspective of the future:

did the protagonist actually prevent with his commitment?

After centuries of exploitation, the earth is finally on the verge of collapse. Wars, famines and natural disasters are likely to be raging. Global warming, rising sea levels, the devastation of the earth’s surface – none of this can be stopped for a long time …

And in this supposedly hopeless situation, a scientist comes up with an ingenious invention with which the already sealed fate of mankind can still be bent: With the so-called inversion, the passage of time can be reversed – instead of finally collapsing, nature would imitate itself and after recovering, at some point even return to their original state …

But puff pie: Some ass in the past with his tenet program wrecks everything in the last second. Shut up, humanity dead!

Some ass in the past ruined everything with his tenet program at the last second 123Movie.

Every man for himself

I’m a big fan of “Tenet” – my 5-star review was far too positive for many readers:

But at that point I also see a wasted opportunity: The ethical decision that the protagonist makes by saving his own generation, but at the same time sealing the final end of humanity, is never really negotiated in the film.

a missed chance:

The dilemma behind this is in times of climate change

Whether you regard the end of “Tenet” as a happy ending or not has something to do with whether you are already living according to the now literally understandable saying “After me the flood” – or whether you are already living in future Allowing generations to flow into his (political) considerations, because it simply seems morally appropriate, even if the not-yet-born are not allowed to vote for a long time.

or whether one is already allowing future generations to flow into one’s (political) considerations,

Amazon Prime Video throws Rambo Transformers and Nazi zombies out of the program

Amazon Prime Video throws Rambo, Transformers and Nazi zombies out of the program

In the coming weeks, numerous films will once again disappear from Amazon’s streaming platform. Affected among other things: the best “Rambo” film, at least the second best “Transformers” chapter and the blockbuster among Nazi zombie films.

Streaming platforms are practical – thousands of films and series are just a click (or push of a button) away. But only until they are no longer. In contrast to the DVD shelf, which is getting fuller and fuller, Netflix, Amazon and Co. regularly sort out. What can be streamed is usually only available for a certain period of time – with the exception of in-house productions.

In the next 30 days (there is currently no exact date for those films), around three films from Amazon Prime Video that some action fans should have on the watchlist – and now better watch now than later: “Rambo”, “Bumblebee” and “Operation: Overlord”.

Three films that are worthwhile

In addition, Amazon will soon also take other actioners out of the program – such as “Skyscraper” with Dwayne Johnson or the agent satirical “Johnny English 2”. While we can only recommend these two to a limited extent, we would like to recommend the films mentioned above to you.

“Bumblebee”: The “Transformers” spin-off for the yellow “Bumblebee” Bumblebee was not as successful at the box office as the films in the original series, but for us it is at least a family action adventure with an 80s vibe content-wise the salvation of the series. Because instead of soulless bombast, there was finally something for the heart again.

“Rambo”: As the fifth film in the series, “Rambo: Last Blood” could have ended the saga worthily and closed the circle to Part 1 (original title: “First Blood”) simply because of the title. Not only many fans, but we weren’t too enthusiastic about the cult comeback either. If you want to suppress the film or would like to forget it right away, watch the first part again and remind yourself how good “Rambo” can be – because the veteran drama has not lost any of its impact to this day.

“Operation: Overlord”: Nazi zombie films are often ridiculed and dismissed as trash. And that doesn’t come from anywhere, because that is exactly what most genre contributions are. But as so often there are exceptions here and there – for example “Operation: Overlord”. With production costs of 38 million dollars, it is not only by far the most expensive film about undead Nazis, but above all a strong mixture of horror and action – which looks damn good, is consistently brutal and, unlike the genre, comes across as quite serious cmovieshd.

The first reviews of Enola Holmes Thats how good the Netflix movie with Millie Bobby Brown as Sherlocks sister is

The first reviews of “Enola Holmes”: That’s how good the Netflix movie with Millie Bobby Brown as Sherlock’s sister is

“Enola Holmes” was supposed to be in theaters, but was then sold to Netflix. However, anyone who feared that this had something to do with the quality of the film will be taught better thanks to the first reviews.

That it is not necessarily a bad sign when Netflix “steals” films from the cinemas has been impressively proven in the past, among other things, by the sci-fi masterpiece “Extinction” (which, however, continued to be shown on the big screen in the USA) . Now “Enola Holmes” apparently also shows that a migration to streaming service is not necessarily a cause for concern.

The first reviews of the thriller adventure of the eponymous sister (Millie Bobby Brown) by master detective Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill) are not outstanding, but almost entirely positive. Most of the praise goes to “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown and the fact that there’s a fresh spin on the well-known universe.

The first reviews of the crime thriller adventure of the eponymous sister (Millie Bobby Brown) by master detective Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill) are not outstanding, but almost entirely positive.

That’s what selected critics say

We have summarized the specific statements from leading industry magazines and from particularly meaningful reviews of some websites, starting with the most positive:

Variety: “Entertaining franchise start” with an “independently thinking new heroine for a young adult audience”

Variety:

The Hollywood Reporter: “The film successfully shows a place for his heroine in Holmes‘ World, in order to convince young viewers that Enola does not have to be restricted by the limits of this world. “

The Hollywood Reporter:

Collider: “‘Enola Holmes’ is an absolutely charming film that makes you long for more adventures by this young detective.”

Collider:

IndieWire: “’Enola Holmes’ doesn’t just use his heroine as a cute reference to progressive thinking; he is fully absorbed in a story that is deeply feminist in her heart. “

IndieWire:

The verdict at Empire and Digital Spy is at least a little more restrained, for example, where it is criticized that the case the great heroine has to deal with is not particularly exciting and that the feminist message is sometimes conveyed a little too much with a mallet:

Empire: “Well-intentioned, even if not exactly subtle at times, ‘Enola Holmes’ is a good and vivid reminder that a traditional story can always be told anew – even if more sophisticated feminism teachings may be required next time.”

Empire:

Digital Spy: “Millie Bobby Brown is fantastic as Enola Holmes, charismatic and engaging in a role that could have been annoying. It’s just a shame that the puzzle itself just isn’t that interesting. “

Digital Spy:

The most negative criticism so far comes from the Flickering Myth website:

Flickering Myth: “An extremely annoying near-total failure, the biggest mystery of which is why it’s so long and wandering around so aimlessly.”
