Is “Tenet” the best Nolan movie? We discuss – without spoilers – about the Mindfuck masterpiece

In a very special issue of Canvas Love we are discussing “Tenet”, whereby there is a part without spoilers and one with slight spoilers. It’s also about the DC FanDome from last weekend (including the “The Batman” trailer).

With “Tenet” a film starts in the cinemas this week, which should finally fill the halls again after the Corona break and the subsequent shortage of viewers. And if you watch the new science fiction thriller, you are guaranteed to want to discuss it afterwards – just like the editors Julius Vietzen and Markus Trutt in the current episode Canvas Love (at this point we send moderator Sebastian Gerdshikow greetings on a well-deserved vacation) .

This makes “Tenet” the perfect film for our cinema discussion podcast Love on the Screen. But since we know that some listeners have not yet seen “Tenet”, we have divided the current episode particularly strictly:

This makes “Tenet” the perfect film for our cinema discussion podcast Love on the Screen.

First of all, “Tenet” is spoken of completely without spoilers, after a warning there is a segment with slight spoilers (of course we won’t reveal big things like the end there either). You can easily jump to the parts you want in your podcast app.

As a bouncer, we still have a section for the DC FanDome for XMOVIES 8, which Julius took care of with news for – and where, among other things, the gloomy first trailer for “The Batman” with Robert Pattinson was presented.

I beg your pardon So few people should originally have died in John Wick

I beg your pardon? So few people should originally have died in “John Wick”!

Does there always have to be so much violence in films? Definitely in “John Wick” films, otherwise it just wouldn’t be the same! But originally the Keanu Reeves actioner was supposed to be very, much more harmless …

Would the “John Wick” franchise have made it into five parts, a cinema spin-off and a TV series if the original vision for the first film had been implemented? We boldly type: never in life!

In an interview with Comicbook.com, “John Wick” director Chad Stahelski revealed how different and, above all, how much less bloody the story was in the first draft of the script:

how much less bloody the story was in the first draft of the script:

“It was much more cautious. I believe only three people died in the original script, two of them in a car accident. It was very, very minimalist. I read it and immediately thought of Greek mythology. I’ve seen it more than a fable, a surreal action film that is not down-to-earth and gray, but somehow different. “

A ballistic ballet

Chad Stahelski then goes on to explain how the many extra deaths (after all, the number of kills in his version increases from 3 to 80) came about:

Chad Stahelski then explains further,
How the many extra deaths (after all, the number of kills in its version increases from 3 to 80) came about:

“People keep making fun of the number of dead. But the way I and my team approached it, it was always about a choreographed flow of movements and set pieces FFMovies. We wanted some kind of ballet dance that felt almost like a live performance.

But such an effective killer as (Keanu Reeves) also brings with it his very special challenges for filming:

“The only problem is, if you shoot people in the head, they can’t get up again. So you can’t reuse the stuntman. Every time Keanu turned on his own axis, he shot five guys. So I needed more and more new stunt people. “

(Much) more dead in “John Wick 4 5”

In “John Wick 2” (128 dead) and “John Wick 3” (94 dead) the kill count was noticeably increased again – and slowly it looks as if John Wick could still reach four digits!

After all, “John Wick 4” and “John Wick 5”, which are to be shot together in one piece, have already been officially confirmed – and there are some indications that it will continue after that. Finally, a cinema spin-off “Ballerina” and a TV series (“The Continental”) are still being worked on in parallel, in order to constantly expand the hit-man universe of “John Wick” outside of the main series.

“John Wick 4” and “John Wick 5”, which are to be shot together in one piece, have already been officially confirmed

“John Wick 4” is scheduled to hit cinemas in May 2022, but there is no announced date for “John Wick 5” yet. And so it should go on in “John Wick 4”:

“John Wick 4” should come to the cinemas in May 2022, for “John Wick 5” there is still no announced date. And so it should go on in “John Wick 4”:

After Truth beats Tenet in German cinemas

“After Truth” beats “Tenet” in German cinemas

It was a close race, but after tickets sold, the teenage romance “After Passion 2” is now number 1 in the German cinema charts, ahead of the Nolan thriller “Tenet”.

When the author of these lines spent the last Saturday evening with old friends, none of whom are film freaks, at some point the sentence came up: “Really, the cinemas are open again?” That the cinemas have already been open for about two months must have been Apparently word gets around first – but films like “After Truth” and “Tenet” help.

1st place: “After Truth”

The cinemas need films with a large audience, it’s that simple. They need films like the teenage love drama “After Truth”, based on Anna Todd’s bestseller, which, according to figures from Blickpunkt: Film, drew almost 240,000 viewers to the cinemas from Thursday to Sunday (for which Wednesday previews of the restart, 52,000 tickets were sold). Although “After Truth” started worse than its predecessor “After Passion” in 2019 with 330,000 visitors, there was no Corona in 2019 either.

2nd place: “Tenet”

Christopher Nolan himself said it in an interview: No film can save cinema on its own. He was commenting on the industry’s enormous expectations of “Tenet” to lure the masses into the cinemas after the Corona break. Whether a film like the sci-fi thriller that is confusing for many viewers is even suitable for this in the long term, as soon as the word gets out about how demanding it is, remains to be seen – but “Tenet” is still making its very significant contribution to saving the cinemas:

According to the projections, 235,000 cinema tickets were sold in this country between Thursday and Sunday for “Tenet”, which put the film just behind “After Truth”, now has a total of 740,000 viewers and will very soon surpass Nolan’s “Dunkirk”, which has 750,000 visitors had – mind you in 2017 123movie.

The results of “Tenet” so far also give reason for hope internationally:

Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” was launched in the USA and China

Places 3-5

According to InsideKino, last weekend was the best weekend at the cinema for six months. That there is still a lot of room for improvement in terms of visitor numbers is shown by positions 3 to 5, where “I Still Believe” (18,000 spectators), “Follow Me” (17,200) and “The Boonies – A great journey through time” (17,000). In times before Corona, no film with these numbers would very likely have made it into the top 5.

In the podcast: “Tenet” (initially without spoilers)

Act on the development of telecommunications networks and services already signed by the president

The Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland has just announced that on September 6, 2019, President Andrzej Duda signed the Act on the development of telecommunications services and networks, it will enter into force 30 days after being announced.

The Act on the development of telecommunications networks and services is also often referred to as the mega-act, because it introduces changes to as many as 14 existing ones. As we learn from its justification, the goal is to remove existing administrative and legal barriers that constitute an obstacle to the construction of broadband networks. This reduction of administrative, legal, procedural and financial burdens is to be a condition for Poland to achieve the objectives set out in the National Broadband Plan and commitments to provide access to modern telecommunications services resulting from membership of the European Union.

So what changes should you expect? Expanded among others definition of telecommunications infrastructure with a slight impact on the above-ground cable line, the possibility of local governments financing investment costs, a Broadband Fund was created as an instrument to support the development of broadband Internet access services from domestic funds, and a chapter was added that contains regulations regarding the creation of an Information System for Radiation Generating Installations Electromagnetic, which will be a public, free database containing information about the electromagnetic field in the environment technologi.

Rates for occupying the road lane were also reduced in relation to telecommunication infrastructure facilities and equipment, and the possibility for the local government unit to conclude the so-called investment agreement, under which, in exchange for the investor’s implementation of an investment meeting the community’s collective needs, the rate stipulated in the Act can be further reduced (such investments desired by the local government may not only be broadband networks, but also electricity, water and gas networks). Moreover, access to forest areas for placing telecommunications infrastructure in these areas has been greatly facilitated.

The modifications to the environmental protection law, where the regulation on permissible levels of electromagnetic fields in the environment has changed, cannot be omitted. In addition, from the entry into force of the Act, measurements of electromagnetic fields around installations or devices will be carried out immediately before commissioning of the installation or device, and the manager or owner of the property on which there has been a change in the existing state of development and development of the property, resulting in changes in the occurrence of places available for people around the installation or device, will be able to apply in writing for new measurements.

The Act also increases the possibilities of building infrastructure in areas where until now there was a ban or significant restrictions in this area, such as: health resorts, national parks, nature reserves (e.g. by lifting the bans and restrictions on locating non-linear telecommunications infrastructure in spa areas and enabling – in strictly defined cases and after meeting certain requirements – the construction of non-linear telecommunications infrastructure installations in the area of ​​national parks or nature reserves).

T. rex, the most famous dinosaur, had its own air conditioning in its head

Of course, the word air conditioning is a kind of abuse here, but as scientists have just discovered, this dinosaur was able to regulate its body temperature in a very interesting way.

Thermal photos of alligators taken by a team of scientists led by Casey Holliday from the University of Missouri School of Medicine suggest that Tyrannosaurus rex may have had blood vessels in the skull that helped this giant predator regulate body temperature, in other words it had biological conditioning in it. So it seems that although we have been trying to unravel the mysteries of this iconic dinosaur, which is constantly arousing the imagination of scientists and children around the world, it still hides many secrets.

T. rex lived in the Cretaceous period, some 68-66 million years ago and could boast of really impressive dimensions – it was up to 12.3 meters long and weighed up to 14 tons, and its first skeleton was discovered in 1900. Since then, staffs of researchers have been studying it piece by piece, trying to learn as much as possible about its anatomy, physiology and habits. Unfortunately, despite this more than 100 years of experience in this field, the brief still has not been able to solve all puzzles, e.g. related to his body temperature.

Until the sixties of the last century, scientists claimed that, as befits a reptile, T. rex was cold-blooded, but later there was evidence to suggest otherwise, i.e. both he and the other dinosaurs were probably warm-blooded. How was it actually? The first, the second, or maybe something completely in between? To this day it is difficult to say, but as recent experiments show, it certainly had a mechanism that made sure that the predator did not overheat or did not freeze too much.

Researchers from the University of Missouri School of Medicine believe that these are cranial blood vessels located in two large holes in the head of T. rexa, which acted as an internal thermostat – so far scientific circles have said that these holes are places for muscles Jaws: It’s very strange for muscles to come out of the jaw, make a 90-degree turn, and continue to the skull vault web alpha directory. Either way, we have a lot of convincing evidence for the theory of blood vessels in this place, based on our work with alligators and other reptiles, “says Casey Holliday.

To learn more about these holes, the team used thermal photos taken by alligators in St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park, Florida. – Alligator body temperature depends on the environment. However, we noticed that when it was getting cold and the reptiles wanted to warm up, the thermal image showed large hot spots in said skull holes, indicating a rise in temperature. When it got warmer, the points became dark, as if someone had turned them off to keep the temperature low. This corresponds well with earlier evidence suggesting that alligators have internal thermostats.

And since there are many similarities between the skull of the alligator and T. rex, researchers believe that the dinosaur had the same mechanism. What is interesting, however, still does not answer the question whether the tyrannosaur was stable or cold-blooded, because in nature we observe similar solutions not only in reptiles, but also mammals. For example, dogs also have cranial blood vessels that protect their brains from overheating, which would be very useful for a warm-blooded predator, because it might suggest that it would be able to chase its prey until the same one died from overheating. In short, we still have many questions, but there is no guarantee that we will ever get answers to them.

India is becoming new China. Cheap workforce makes iPhones for $ 4 a day

Someone had to make money from the trade war between the United States and China, and the latest reports suggest that it will be Foxconn, who wants to use India for this purpose, which is growing to the next power.

Foxconn believes that this will be the best place to assemble all future iPhones, and the local government confirms the concern in this belief, believing that his country will win something for themselves and eventually become a global electronics production center 1337 directory. Will this work out? It is hard to say, but given that Apple must be ready for a 10-15% tariff imposed by the Donald Trump administration on goods imported from China, it will certainly be looking for a cheaper alternative, which may be India.

Until now, the American giant was looking around in Brazil and Vietnam (following the example of Google, which wants to assemble its Pixel smartphones in the latter country), but everything indicates that India may be a better option. Foxconn has already built two factories there and is waiting for building permits for another two to gradually increase its share in the production of new iPhones. And why India? According to Bloomberg, the matter is simple, there is a lot of very cheap labor there, and we are talking about a level comparable with China.

The Indian government had previously been rather reluctant to cooperate with major manufacturers, but now it has apparently changed its mind and intends to make a solid profit from the war between the US and China. What’s more, the necessary actions have already been taken to adapt local regulations to new conditions and encourage manufacturers to build factories – but it is worth remembering that a lot has to happen on the spot, because even now road and rail infrastructure is not ready for an increased number of producers and implementation of huge supply chains. Either way, the government’s plan is to increase India’s manufacturing value from $ 25 billion to $ 400 billion by 2024.

According to Anshul Gupta, a researcher from Gartner India: – Everything is starting to shape. India can increase its production capacity and help the world become independent of China. It took China 30 years to reach its current position, but now many large concerns, such as Amazon, Apple, Google or Dell have expressed interest in India, so it can go much faster.

Unfortunately, there are also less pleasant sides of the whole process, namely the current Foxconn factories employ mainly women who get $ 4 a day for assembling such equipment as iPhone X, XS or alternatives from Xiaomi. For many women, this is an opportunity to take up their first job away from home, for which they are paid and a chance to live above the poverty line, but it can not be hidden that $ 130 a month is not very impressive, and Foxconn has a lot of employment controversy minors and poor working conditions, so it would be good if someone had their finger on the pulse.

YouTube will voluntarily pay up to $ 200 million in fines for “children”

Some time ago, we learned that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has initiated an investigation against the media giant regarding violations of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. And now the consequences are coming.

We remind you that this is an act that entered into force on April 1, 2000, and its main purpose is to protect the privacy and collection of personal data of children under the age of thirteen who are users of websites directly addressed to them or other services, if they have they know that they collect the personal data of children under the age of thirteen. It cannot be hidden that YouTube must have known that some of its users are children who meet these criteria, so now it must bear the relevant consequences.

The first is the penalty imposed by the commission, the exact amount of which is not yet known, but will probably amount to USD 150-200 million. In addition, the service must make some changes to avoid similar situations in the future, but we will probably know more details in the next week, when the FTC will present its official position on the matter. It is worth emphasizing, however, that most of the committee’s requirements will certainly be met by the new YouTube Kids service, which has just started, but on the other hand, this one before the debut aroused the opposition of some creators best web guides.

It has appropriate filters and records in the privacy policy to protect young recipients (and creators) and cut them off from violent and inappropriate content, including advertisements targeted at them. Hence the Google idea of ​​transferring content for minors to YouTube Kids, which the creators are afraid of, because it may mean smaller ranges and profits. And according to recent research from the Pew Research Center, every video with a child under the age of 13 collects nearly 3 times more views than material on a different topic, despite the fact that YouTube requires its users to be more than 13 years old:

– This small subcategory of movies that were created for children or appeared in children, especially up to 13 years of age, was more popular in terms of the number of page views than any other topic examined by us in this report – we read in the report. No wonder that the authors of these channels are hostile, especially since the new regulations do not guarantee that children will not find a workaround to use the site on the existing basis. On the other hand, we have organizations dealing with privacy on the web, which claim that the FTC has treated the next giant too gently, while legalizing its new empire.
