Tenet is my favorite John David Washington film. There, I said it. Washington’s performance in the work he’s been featured in the last several years proves both his range as an actor but also his drive to further establish himself in the industry. His style is uniquely his own, with subtle hints to the performance magic that runs in the family. Netflix’s newest thriller Beckett has Washington in the fight of his life after a devastating accident forces Beckett to desperately trek across the country to the American embassy.Continue reading “Official Trailer for ‘Beckett’ Shows John David Washington in the Fight of His Life”
It’s been a long time. We shouldn’t have left you without a dope pod to listen to.
The Tenet train keeps on rolling! As Christopher Nolan’s latest continues to invert the box office with its mind-bending greatness, we at the NOC were lucky enough to meet with the film’s “Fixer,” Himesh Patel, for an interview co-led by AsAm News correspondant, and friend of the show, Erin Wen Ai Chew!

Tenet has made its way into theaters! And though it’s no secret that the pandemic has hindered our ability to see the film on IMAX screens as auteur, Christopher Nolan, intended, I was very fortunate to run out and see it from the safety of my car at an LA drive-in recently. And let me tell you, this is one heck of a twisty, complex, roller coaster ride that challenges and thrills you! Multiple viewings will be required. That said, I encourage folks to treat themselves to a drive-in night to see it as safely and as soon as possible, because it’s incredibly fun!Continue reading “The Master of Inversion: ‘Tenet’ Star John David Washington”
Oh man, do I love Christopher Nolan!
It’s no secret that we’re living in an unprecedented time where the very existence of the theatrical experience is being threatened. Even if the quarantine is lifted, there’s going to be a lot of hesitation for audiences to return to the big screens. However, if anyone can bring people back to theaters, begging for more — if anyone can provide an argument for why cinema and movies need to be viewed outside the comfort of our own homes, and through immersive experiences we can’t get from streaming on our TVs — it’s Christopher Nolan!
Few directors are franchises unto themselves. But the way Marvel Studios owns the first weekend in May and Star Wars lays claim to the middle of December, Christopher Nolan is synonymous with the mid-July blockbuster. In 2020, that will be the case once again when Warner Bros. releases Tenet.
