Thinking of road tripping to Portland or Reno / Tahoe just to watch this movie (amongst other things).

Movie is getting mixed reviews but looks awesome to me

It’s still not a great idea to sit in a movie theater with strangers who have probably not been taking precautions.

Don't go to a movie theater if you live in the United States. If Tenet is playing at a drive-in near you, then go and be cautious.

Not to mention the risks of spreading the virus on the road trip home and defeating the whole point of California's lockdown measures.

Been considering driving to Vegas to see it but undecided. The theater is a Dolby theater which is already spaced out due to large recliner seats + they are limiting to 40% max along with sanitizing, added ventilation, staggered times, and masks required.

I'm thinking about raw dogging a bunch of girls on tinder.

This is the thread where we do things and ask what's the worst that could happen, right?

It's disheartening that people are so willing to compromise any advances we have made in knocking the virus back simply to do something like see a movie.

is it bad that I think this movie will somehow be less good because it's rated pg-13 and not R?

reasoning being that the director/writer/etc likely had to tone down what they wanted to do so that it could reach a wider (read: more $) audience

obviously there are exceptions to this but it's my general view

movie experts feel free to tear down these points

Has Nolan made an R rated movie since Memento?

Nope. It's not hard to tone down a R movie into PG-13. People can make out and initiate sex, just don't show explicit sex. People can cus, but not a ton. Explosions can happen and people can die. Just don't show gore.

Wanna show a genocide in your superhero movie? That cool, PG-13.

Show one tiddie for two seconds in any movie: that's a hard R.

America is so weird. I miss Paul Verhoeven in Hollywood all of a sudden.

yeah those are good points (I didn't realize that none of Nolan's are rated R, especially)

I guess it's mostly a thing for me for comedies (and action movies to a lesser extent)

I just like the notion of the director/writer/etc not having to hold back what they want to do
