Tenet

Elizabeth Debicki’s character wasn’t inverted on the cruise at the end, so that’s why she didn’t need an oxygen mask. That’s a pretty basic plot point to have not understood.. There are many of things you could nitpick, this was not one of them.

Loved it!

First of all, their voices are pure ear porn for Americans. Secondly, they are a great review podcast. I usually don’t listen to these types of podcasts, but as a mom of 3, I was looking up people’s thoughts on Incredibles 2. They were fun, lighthearted, organized, well-spoken, and super entertaining. I learned a bunch and now want to be their friends. Subscribing!
