I hated with a passion everything they tried to put on in between the cartoons. I knew budget saving tricks when I saw them . . .

I never did see Empire in the Cinema as when I went to book times had all gone, and seems till only very recently only a few cinemas had opened back up.

Which is why only now went back to the Cinema where I saw Tenet which also stars John David Washington. My first thoughts

And after the film Craig was like what was the plot, I think I understood it and explained it but I could be totally wrong but as something to watch in terms of directing, stunts it is top notch.

Taxi Driver (1976)

I really enjoyed this iconic De Niro thriller, that follows a lonely, depressed taxi driver as he contemplates his purpose in a city full of scum. Trying to woo a woman by taking her to watch a porno on a first date and then wondering why she isn't interested in him is an eye-opening glimpse into the socially inept world of stalkers and weirdos, people who could well fall into the "scum" category. Instead, a chance encounter with a teenage prostitute opens his eyes and gives him a sense of purpose. He befriends her and in doing so is able to use his military skills from his past to clean up the streets and change her life. I won't spoil the rest as it contains some iconic moments and phrases, but despite 70s New York looking decidedly different-era in 2020, it's a great film that still hits hard today.

9/10

Not quite Tenet levels of complexity, but we watched The Old Guard after my writing group spent ages raving about it. It's a superhero film with immortals that plays out more like a military action film with the occasional resurrection. It has two queer romances and a nice diverse cast (the two main characters are a woman and a black woman), but otherwise was really dull - so it's probably a good thing it exists but I couldn't recommend it. Oh, and it still can't resist the 'goodies American baddies British' trope.

I've heard nothing but good things about The Old Guard from people much like your writing group I would guess.

I probably got a bit Undertaled/Celested going in, in that I thought it was going to be an AMAZING REVOLUTIONARY FILM and it was... okay. Something to keep in mind.

I actually caught the Equalizer in theatres. I remember it being pretty bloody cheesy but also good fun.

I watched Tenet. It all made sense, I thought it was nicely plotted, I liked the leads and overall I liked it. Not Nolan's best - the science fiction aspect was deep but the emotional core was overly simple good and evil - but a good romp.

I will say this, though: Nolan's films are tense but I never feel like I need to see the action again. Its serviceable but not super cool.
