Tenet the end explained

“Tenet”: the end explained

“Tenet” is a film that has to be seen in the cinema, but at the same time – as usual with Christopher Nolan – not a shallow popcorn cinema. In this article you will find our explanation of the events at the end of “Tenet”.

Warning, spoilers for “Tenet” will follow!

Warning, spoilers for “Tenet” will follow!

We don’t even want to pretend that we understood every aspect of “Tenet” the first time we saw it and that we were able to fully understand the winding paths that the nameless protagonist (John David Washington) and his partner Neil (Robert Pattinson), especially in the bombastic one Taking finals through time.

The algorithm is held up

It is different with the twist or the big resolution at the end: The protagonist, Neil and Ives (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) have successfully acquired the algorithm with which the humanity of the future could wipe out the humanity of the present.

Now the three men split the device between themselves so that nobody has the entire algorithm and thus (intentionally or not) again endangers humanity. However, Neil then hands over his part of the algorithm to the protagonist because he still has one task to perform:

Neil opens the door

In order to get to the algorithm in the first place, the protagonist and Ives had to go through a locked door, which was only opened when a mysterious figure appeared. It is about Neil, traveling back in time, who dies in this heroic deed by intercepting a bullet intended for the protagonist.

a locked door that was only opened by the appearance of a mysterious figure. This is Neil traveling back in time

Before that, in the middle of his inverted mission, he had left the blue team traveling back in time to warn the protagonist and Ives (in vain) about the mined entrance. Only in this way could he then free the two men and the algorithm (now traveling forward in time again) from the underground space (including the algorithm) YESmovies. After the supposed happy ending, Neil undertakes another inversion, knowing full well that he will die in the process.

After the supposed happy ending, Neil undertakes another inversion, knowing full well that he will die in the process.

Paradoxical time loops

But nevertheless it is (depending on the point of view) only the beginning of a wonderful friendship (here Nolan bows before “Casablanca”) between the protagonist and Neil. Because as Neil reveals in the final minutes of the film, Tenet was founded in the future by the protagonist (Tenet is not only the title of the film, but also the name of the secret organization that tries to prevent the war of the times).

Tenet was founded in the future by the protagonist

So Neil and the protagonist have known each other for years, at least from Neil’s perspective. Because it turns out that the protagonist of the future has recruited Neil himself so that this Neil helps the protagonist of the present with his mission – one of the many (apparently) paradoxical time loops in “Tenet”.

“Tenet” soundtrack released: Here you can listen to the music of Ludwig Göransson

Among other things, it is revealed here that Neil was already seen in the first scene of the film: during the fight in the Kiev Opera, a hooded figure can be seen wearing the same eye-catching red tag and already saving the protagonist’s life there .

Two parallel storylines

Parallel to the events in Russia around the protagonist, Kat (Elizabeth Debicki), who has also traveled back in time, on the yacht in Thailand must prevent the villain Sator (Kenneth Branagh) from taking his own life and thus detonating the bomb that spills the algorithm .

Kat (Elizabeth Debicki), who also traveled back in time, has to prevent the villain Sator (Kenneth Branagh) from taking his own life on the yacht in Thailand

In the end, she kills the hated Sator with her own hands, but only after the protagonist, Neil and Ives have brought the algorithm to safety. Kat, who has traveled back, jumps from the boat, which the Kat observes from the past, which the jumping woman, however, believes to be a lover of Sator – another time warp.

“Tenet” has been in German cinemas since August 26, 2020.

Scream 5 You have to wait that long until the cinema release

“Scream 5”: You have to wait that long until the cinema release

The late sequel to the legendary Slasher series will soon be in motion, the cast is slowly coming together – but “Scream 5” will not be released until January 2022.

The “Scream” trilogy hit theaters within four years after the masterful first film revitalized the slasher genre. However, more than ten years passed between “Scream 3” (2000) and “Scream 4” (2011) – and between “Scream 4” and “Scream 5” there will be about a decade of waiting time.

In the USA, “Scream 5” will be released in cinemas on January 14, 2022 (the German launch, which has not yet been officially announced, should be on January 13, 2022)

“Scream 5” is staged by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who have certainly caught the attention of Hollywood horror producers since the bloody, wacky hunting horror “Ready or Not”.

Returnees

David Arquette will return in the new, not yet officially titled “Scream” as Dewey Riley, as a sympathetic-spoiled cop, and Courteney Cox will again play the biting reporter Gale Weathers. Arquette and Cox have been confirmed as returnees, Neve Campbell has not yet – with her apparently still being negotiated.

One can only hope that the negotiations will turn out well because the scriptwriters James Vanderbilt (“Amazing Spider-Man”) and Guy Busick (“Ready or Not”) otherwise have to suck some apparently constructed explanation from their fingers as to why Dewey and Gale is back, but Sidney is not.

Fresh blood

Two newcomers have been announced for “Scream 5” so far: Melissa Barrera, who will dance alongside “Hamilton” star Lin-Manuel Miranda through the Broadway adaptation “In The Heights” in 2021, and Jenna Ortega.

Once indexed sci-fi masterpiece with Arnold Schwarzenegger appears as a noble new edition – uncut

Once indexed sci-fi masterpiece with Arnold Schwarzenegger appears as a noble new edition – uncut

20 years after he came on the index in 1991, Paul Verhoeven’s science fiction cult film “Total Recall” was even released from the age of 16. Now the Schwarzenegger classic appears in a chic new edition – in a resolution that has never been seen before.

Studiocanal upgrades! Just a few months after the trashy sci-fi cult “Flash Gordon” was first published in 4K (and various editions), “Total Recall” (1990) is now an undisputed genre highlight.

The classic, based on a short story by the legendary science fiction author Philip K. Dick, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, who books a virtual trip as Douglas Quaid and soon can no longer distinguish between reality and fiction, originally appeared in Germany with an 18 release, until it even landed on the index in 1991. In 2011, the indexing was finally lifted and the film was also released from the age of 16.

So if you have doubts as to whether the new edition of the film, including the 4K master, which will appear in various editions, really contains all the scenes, you can breathe a sigh of relief: The “Total Recall” editions available from November 19, 2020 are all completely uncut – and also have a lot more to offer. For example a nice cover artwork:

The full load of “Total Recall”

Similar to “Flash Gordon” last August, Studiocanal is releasing the cult film by cult film director Paul Verhoeven (“RoboCop”, “Starship Troopers”) for the first time worldwide including a 4K restoration. Both the German and the English language versions will be available in DTS-HD Master Audio, but above all the film will shine in a new look – in Ultra HD resolution.

If you don’t own a 4K player (yet), you can also get the new master on Blu-ray – either as a Standard Edition or in a Limited Edition – and on DVD, albeit with a lower resolution. In addition to an audio commentary with leading actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and director Paul Verhoeven, fans who would like to know more about the classic can also expect brand new bonus material.

The standard editions already contain, for example, extras on the making of the film and the film music XMOVIES 8. If you pick up one of the two Steelbooks, you will also get more – including the documentary “Total Excess: How Carolco Changed Hollywood”.

Stream “Total Recall”

It is to be expected that “Total Recall” as well as “Flash Gordon” will also be available digitally as a stream in the new sampling from November. Until then, the film can at least be streamed in the familiar version – for example on Amazon Prime Video from 1.99 euros or in the Filmtastic Channel *.

The remake from 2012 with Colin Farrell in the lead role can currently be found on Netflix.

Cobra Kai on Netflix Whats Next in Season 3

“Cobra Kai” on Netflix: What’s Next in Season 3?

The first two seasons of “Cobra Kai” have recently started running on Netflix – but they also look away quickly, so that one might now wonder how it will go in season 3. We thought about it a few times …

Warning, spoilers for the first two seasons of “Cobra Kai” will follow!

Warning, spoilers for the first two seasons of “Cobra Kai” will follow!

After “Cobra Kai” originally ran on YouTube Red / Premium, Netflix now came into play – and made the “Karate Kid” series available to millions of subscribers on August 26, 2020. Anyone who has been through as fast as the author of these lines with the previous 20 episodes can hardly wait until the third season, which has already been confirmed, continues in 2021.

Producer Jon Hurwitz has now even confirmed via Twitter that season 3 has already been shot, edited and finished to go on air (unfortunately not until next year):

Season 3 has already been shot, edited and done

Filmed. Edited. Ready to go. Look out for it on @netflix in 2021.

Filmed. Edited. Ready to go. Look out for it on @netflix in 2021.

So we don’t need to worry about potential Corona-related postponements for the time being. Instead, we thought about what to expect in the next section of the series – and to which open questions we would like answers.

The fate of Miguel

In the last (and perhaps best) episode of season 2, “No Mercy”, things really get down to business: There is a mass brawl between the students of Miyagi-Do and Cobra Kai. But the fight, in which the karate kids beat their way through half the school, comes to a tragic end when Robby (Tanner Buchanan) seriously injures Sam’s ex-boyfriend Miguel (Xolo Maridueña).

At the end of the episode, it is unclear how Miguel is doing. We are pretty sure that Miguel survived the fatal fall. But it will probably not be the same as before. In any case, we expect that the teenager in season 3 will first be busy getting well again (if that is possible at all) – and that he will now see karate with different eyes. The latter should also apply to Robby.

We are pretty sure that Miguel survived the fatal fall. But it will probably not be the same as before.

Do Robby and Sam have a future together?

After Robby and Sam (Mary Mouser) became close in the course of the second season and eventually even kissed, their relationship threatens to come to an abrupt end as a result of the tragic incident.

Even though Sam and Robby only fought side by side in the last episode, Daniel LaRusso’s (Ralph Macchio) daughter is no longer too good to speak to her dojo companions after Miguel beat up the hospital.

“Never again karate”

Daniel spent more and more time with his newly opened dojo in season 2, but increasingly neglected his dealership and his wife Amanda (Courtney Henggeler) – which she clearly shows him. In order to keep the house blessing, she finally made a request: “Never again karate!”

And in fact, Daniel is likely to turn away from martial arts for now. After all, it was his student Robby, whom he lovingly took under his wing and whom he taught that karate is not about attack, but above all about defense – and who nevertheless seriously injured Miguel and probably has to fear criminal prosecution. Daniel wanted to do something else with his dojo …

in fact, Daniel is likely to turn away from martial arts for the time being.

Kreese is back!

Cobra Kai founder John Kreese (Martin Kove) grabbed the karate studio again at the end of season 2 – to turn his new protégés into uncompromising fighting machines, as he did with Johnny (William Zabka) and his Pals (in “Karate Kid”) tried Fmovies.

This means that not only is Daniel without a dojo, but also Johnny. But it also has completely different problems …

This means that not only is Daniel without a dojo, but also Johnny.

Johnny lost everything

After Daniel and Johnny get along so well for one evening that as a spectator and “Karate Kid” fan one almost hopes that the two might bury the hatchet, the tatters fly again after Robby hits the drunk Sam brought his father home and let them both speak their fists like before. That’s about the potential friendship – at least for now. But who knows, maybe the arch enemies Daniel and Johnny will soon join forces against the chief villain Kreese?

But who knows, maybe the arch enemies Daniel and Johnny will soon join forces against the chief villain Kreese?

Johnny is not only there without a dojo, he also has to live with the fact that he might have prevented Miguel, who recently became his substitute son, from lying in the hospital. And that, of all things, when he finally got closer to his mother Carmen (Vanessa Rubio). But now she doesn’t want to know anything more about him.

At the same time, the next potential romance is already emerging …

The comeback of childhood love?

And if you finally asked yourself during season 2 whether Ali actress Elisabeth Shue (“Back to the Future II III”, “The Boys”) might return, you will get something like an answer at the end of the last episode Then: Because shortly afterwards, his childhood sweetheart replied to Johnny’s Facebook message with an invitation to friendship.

Shortly thereafter, his childhood sweetheart replied to Johnny’s Facebook message with an invitation to friendship.

It’s just stupid that Johnny sunk his smartphone on the beach. Since the muscle car fan who got stuck in the 80s is slowly but surely arriving in the 21st century, he will surely hear from Ali’s answer sooner or later – on a new cell phone, his laptop or maybe even on a smartwatch!

Besides season 3 of “Cobra Kai”: There are ideas for at least five (!) More “Karate Kid” series

Oktoberfest 1900 is just the beginning This is what awaits us in 2020 with the major ARD series offensive

“Oktoberfest 1900” is just the beginning: This is what awaits us in 2020 with the major ARD series offensive

With “Oktoberfest 1900”, ARD is launching a new series offensive in which online availability as a stream is also a top priority. We give you an overview of what awaits you in 2020 in addition to the historic event series.

“Online first” is the motto that ARD has written on the flags of many of the upcoming in-house series and seasons.

“Online first” is the motto that ARD has written on the flags of many of the upcoming in-house series and seasons.

The pure TV evaluation is of course still not negligible, especially with the public broadcasters. In an environment in which streaming is becoming increasingly important, ARD also wants to keep up with the times and offers exciting fictional material for flexible access via the media library before it is broadcast on television.

The “Oktoberfest 1900” event series gives the top-class starting shot for this.

“Oktoberfest 1900”

“Oktoberfest 1900” takes us into a similar time to the first season of the celebrated ARD series “Charité”, only – as the title suggests – against a completely different background.

At the turn of the century, a struggle between two beer dynasties for supremacy, inspired by true events, breaks out here at the world’s largest folk festival. Of all people, the restaurateur Curt Prank (Mišel Maticevic), who comes from Nuremberg, is trying to grab five stalls in order to build a beer castle for 6,000 guests.

But he did the math without the traditional brewer Ignatz Hoflinger (Francis Fulton-Smith) and his wife Maria (Martina Gedeck), who are resolutely opposed to Prank and are not even thinking of giving up their place at the Oktoberfest. But Prank is not that easy to reject – and in order to achieve his goal he can use just about any means …

All six episodes of “Oktoberfest 1900” will be available from September 8, 2020 for flexible retrieval via the ARD media library (until December 31). Das Erste will broadcast the episodes on television on September 15, 16 and 23, starting at 8.15 p.m. in pairs.

What else the “Online first” offensive has to offer apart from that, we will present you below.

“Pan Tau”

“Pan Tau” is a British-German remake of the Czech children’s series of the same name from the 1970s. The English stand-up comedian and magician Matt Edwards follows in the footsteps of the then main actor Otto Šimánek, who should therefore have the best prerequisites for the title role.

Because Pan Tau is a silent eccentric even in the modern adaptation, who with his magical powers helps children and young people out of a mess or rather shows them a way how they can cope with their problems on their own.

The 14 episodes of the first “Pan Tau” season will be available from September 27, 2020 in the ARD media library and will run from October 4 on the first.

“Babylon Berlin” Season 3

In the sequel to the award-winning book adaptation “Babylon Berlin”, Commissioner Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch) ended up in the Babelsberg film studio just outside Berlin in 1929. Actress Betty Winter died here while filming. Soon there were many indications that it was not an accident but murder.

As with the first two “Babylon Berlin” seasons, season 3 of the ARD-Sky co-production was already on pay TV a few months ago. But now ARD is finally bringing it to free-to-air television – and of course also as a stream.

The first shows the third season “Babylon Berlin” from October 11, 2020 at 8:15 pm, with three episodes in a row at the beginning. At the same time as the start, all twelve episodes of the season are already available online in the ARD media library. The first two seasons can already be streamed there 123movie show.

“The Secret of the Dead Forest”

The plot of the three-part crime and family drama “The Secret of the Forest of the Dead” extends over three decades. The starting point is the disappearance of the sister of a high-ranking Hamburg police officer in the summer of 1989, which resulted in a lengthy search and brought the family of the missing people to their limits.

With Matthias Brandt (“Polizeiruf 110”), Karoline Schuch (“Ballon”), August Wittgenstein (“Das Boot”), Silke Bodenbender (“Wild”) and Nicholas Ofczarek (“Der Pass”) in the leading roles as well as Sven Bohse ( “Ku’damm 56”) on the director’s chair, the multi-part series brings together an illustrious team in front of and behind the camera.

There are no specific dates for the online and TV premieres yet.

“Charité” season 3

After the history of the renowned Berlin hospital was illuminated against the background of the late 19th century and the Second World War in the first two seasons of “Charité”, season 3 now begins the year of the building of the wall, which is also one for the Charité brings with it momentous caesura.

More and more members of the hospital staff migrated westward in 1961, and the young doctor Dr. Ella Wendt (Nina Gummich) soon feels torn between two opposing systems and ways of thinking in the midst of the demanding everyday work.

It is not yet clear when exactly the six-part third “Charité” season will start in the first.

SpaceX satellites could have led to a great cosmic catastrophe

In May, Elon Muska launched the first group of microsatellites of the constellation of the cosmic Internet called StarLink into Earth’s orbit. However, the project encountered many problems on its development path.

Astronomers have accused SpaceX and other companies that are building constellations of the cosmic Internet that tens of thousands of such devices can hinder observations conducted by terrestrial systems. Each microsatellite will be equipped with solar panels, thanks to which it will be able to function normally dark net hub. The problem is that both its body and solar panels reflect some of the sunlight, which can dazzle observers and prevent observations with ground-based telescopes.

However, Elon Musk claims that nothing like this will happen in the future. He has already commissioned his engineers to reduce the albedo of new microsatellites as much as possible, i.e. the ratio of the amount of light radiation reflected from the satellites and directed towards the Earth’s surface. When one problem was solved, the other appeared.

The European Space Agency has announced that SpaceX and its microsatellites have been forced to change the orbit of their observation satellite called Aeolus. Engineers calculated that if the agency did not react, then Elon Musk’s devices could lead to a cosmic catastrophe by colliding with the satellite, and then lead to a domino effect.

So ESA decided to blow it cold and put its device into safe orbit. In low Earth orbit, it gets tighter every year. Many companies plan to put tens of thousands of new microsatellites there. In their opinion, they will be observing our planet and making important measurements and ensuring communication between Earth’s metropolises. Such a large number of devices may pose a threat to future space missions. If one was lost of control, it could end in cosmic catastrophes, which would be very hard to handle.

More StarLink devices are expected to hit orbit this year. Each of the microsatellites is equipped with a hall-ion ion engine based on krypton. The first part of the constellation will operate at an altitude of 550 kilometers above the Earth’s surface. Ultimately, 7,518 microsatellites are expected to reach orbit, and by 2030 there will be several thousand of them. They will be at an altitude of 340 kilometers, 550 kilometers and 1150 kilometers.

Wireless space Internet from SpaceX is to provide access to the world’s largest treasury of knowledge wherever we find ourselves, namely in the forests of the Amazon, in the Sahara or even on a desert island. The system is to offer network speeds of up to 1 Gb / s, with ping not exceeding 24 ms.

Elon Musk wrote on his Twitter profile that his system would in fact not use the IP protocol. Of course, it will support it in the exchange of packets with the global network, but inside the StarLink network it will be done directly on the basis of a peer to peer network, with encryption on the entire communication channel (end-to-end encryption).

Interestingly, Musk wants to raise the security level of its network to a very high level, thanks to the encryption at the network code level (firmware level). If an attack occurs, the network will be able to be updated in express mode and repel cyber attacks, offering its users maximum security.

A few months ago, Elona Muska applied to the FCC authorities for permission to use up to one million earth stations for the StarLink constellation. The terminals are to have flat transceiver antennas. Elona Muska revealed that the interest in the space Internet is enormous. The first customers will be able to enjoy the Internet from microsatellites this year.

First look at new technologies in Formula 1 cars in 2021

Formula 1 cars are the result of real craftsmanship of the development of the latest technologies in the world of motor sports, which has happened over the last decades. See what the future promises.

The FIA ​​is preparing great changes in the world of Formula 1, which are announced for 2021 free top web tutorials. Their goal is to significantly reduce the costs associated with racing, ensure better quality of racing on the track, higher safety for drivers and more efficient use of vehicle power.

The organization will present new guidelines on the principles of driver competition, as well as the aerodynamics of cars and their shapes. The FIA ​​has published on its YouTube channel video footage where we can see the prototype of one of the cars tested in the wind tunnel of all the well-known Sauber company in Switzerland.

Engineers are experimenting with various configurations of the front wing shape and aerodynamic spoilers. In 2021, the car will focus on significantly reducing the air fluctuations generated behind the cars moving at high speeds. The new aerodynamics of the cars are to allow drivers to better drive vehicles moving one after the other, and fans and spectators of F1 racing will provide a much more interesting experience.

Mysterious dark matter can be super-heavy gravitino particles

Dark matter has been sleeping scientists for decades. Although it occurs commonly in the Universe, we have not yet been able to detect the particles that make it up. But this may change soon.

At least such plans have German scientists from the Max Planck Institute streamingaudit. Their analysis of dark matter data obtained over the years and computer simulations allowed them to present a new candidate responsible for the essence of dark matter. The super-heavy gravitino is expected to have a mass of 0.02 milligrams, or as much as a flea egg. It doesn’t seem like much, but we are talking about particles here, which means that it is as much as 10 quintillions times more mass than the mass of a proton or neutron.

Gravitino is to be a unique particle of its kind, which not only interacts with ordinary matter by gravity, but also electromagnetically. Although this first assumption is nothing new, the second one is quite a bold move on the part of the Germans, because if the particle interacted electromagnetically with matter, we could find signs of it even on Earth.

Scientists intend to turn our planet into one large particle detector and use its 4.5 billion years of evolution and interaction with hypothetical particles to ultimately detect them. Gravitino particles, interacting with electromagnetic forces with ordinary matter, must leave traces of ionization, e.g. in rocks, as defects in crystalline structures. The ambitious goal set by the Germans will not be easy to achieve, but the latest technology advances should help in this. We keep our fingers crossed.

Festo presented the latest incarnation of its amazing robo-bird

Engineers from the German company Festo have been surprising the world for several years with their stunning designs slick tricks. They specialize in building robots that are deceptively similar to their living counterparts.

Festo presented one of its bionic works at the World Robot Congress in Beijing, China. Its engineers decided to create a robo-bird in 2011. The robo-seagull has been improved in recent years. From a distance, SmartBird is easily mistaken for a real creature, and this is because not only is it deceptively similar to it, but also very realistically moves in the air. The robot is extremely light, weighs only 400 grams, is able to start and fly in autonomous mode for several dozen minutes.

The Chinese announced some time ago that they would start installing Big Brother spy cameras in robo-animals, specifically in robo-birds. The idea is to take care of the appearance of the metropolises that change into one huge camera with each new year.
