Intriguing Looking Movies catching my eye as we head into the 3rd Quarter of 2020!

Tenet Movie PosterI always want to like Christopher Nolan’s films, but more often than not I don’t. Not a fan of MEMENTO, BATMAN BEGINS, THE PRESTIGE, INCEPTION, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, INTERSTELLAR— not a fan of any of them. I like THE FOLLOWING but don’t love it. I’m looking forward to trying DUNKIRK eventually. The only film he has done that I think is a masterpiece is THE DARK KNIGHT. So as you can see, Nolan is far more miss than hit for me, but I’m hoping TENET is a hit. I don’t love the trailer, but I go into a film always hoping it is going to be great.

The New Mutants Movie PosterI would like it to be good, but none of the trailers I have seen fill me with confidence.

Books of Blood Movie PosterI read these books when they first came out (yes I am ancient) and absolutely loved them. I still remember the blurb on those grisly and beautiful paperbacks (which I am happy to say I still have). Stephen King’s quote on the cover of the book was ” I have seen the future of Horror, and his name is Clive Barker.” He was right.

The movies made from those books have been hit and miss, but I am always happy to see someone take a try. So really looking forward to seeing this, and seeing if they can do the books justice this time out.

Christopher Nolan’s INCEPTION Movie Trailer

Chris Nolan films are always for me, interesting failures.

I’ve discussed him previously, and his films don’t quite come together for me. That said, my problems with his THE DARK KNIGHT noted, it was easily his best film todate. Showed a real growth in terms of his story telling ability, and his ability to manage a truly epic film. The center piece of the Dark Night, is Nolan bringing multiple plot points together and weaving them into each other (the assasination scene) to create a moment of real… impact.

I don’t see THE DARK KNIGHT as a great movie, but it does have some absolutely great moments. I see hints of these moments in the trailer for Nolan’s latest INCEPTION.

Time will tell if the movie is another leap forwward for Nolan, if the movie is… great moments that hang together to make a great film. I would like it to be. As Chris Nolan on his A game, throughout an entire film, can only be… a win/win situation.
