Didn't see Tenet yet.

Why are movies so bad, even with a great foundation to stand on ?
-- Wonder Woman 1984, an overlong silly inconsequential flop.
-- Train to Busan 2 Peninsula, astoundingly poor, with repellent or cartoonish characters.
-- Greenland, badly made CGI: a showckwave races along a street throwing down the hero and breaking windows, but not a leaf moves in all those trees.
A meteorite falls some kilometers away rising a *gigantic* mushroom of fire, and they go about the house with no consequences.

i guess opinions vary on what a remaster should accomplish but in in my books, for a 20+ year old game, this ain't it chief.

Well, I'm in the same boat, basically... I played enough D2 and D2+mods back in the day, for several lifetimes. I most likely won't get the Resurrected version anytime soon, if at all, but I'm sure they will get about $300 million worth of nostalgia sales, at minimum.

Bring on Diablo 4... by like 2024, probably.

*EDIT* Rofl, that video, about a third of the way through, one of the characters has his inventory like 50% full of charms and a teleport book. Ugh, so many bad design choices people gloss over in their minds from that game.

not spoiler, just an opinion: Tenet is a disappointment along the lines of Prometheus. The potential was amazing. The execution was terribly flawed.

About "Tenet", spoilers in secret text:
Okay, am I totally missing something or were they incredibly inconsistent and sloppy about people having to "bring your own oxygen" when inverted? I mean Pattinson is traveling backward in comparison to Washington, right? So, wouldn't that mean any time he is with Washington he would have to be inverted? Even if you ignore that, it seemed like they would use and not use oxygen randomly when we were supposed to know they were inverted. It just all seemed terribly sloppy to me.

In the non-spoiler realm, I heard an interview with Nolan where he talked about the fact they used a real 747 and actually crashed it into a building (I assume a building they built for the film, but that wasn't clear). Amazingly he claimed they did it that way because it was cheaper than doing CGI or miniatures to the quality he would have wanted. They bought the plane at a plane graveyard, sold the engines (which were apparently valuable), built simple mock engines, basically just an electric engine to turn the fan blades, and after they were done filming, sold the plane back to the graveyard -- recovering most of the cost of buying it. Pretty cool.
