The end of the beginning ends, which is also the end.

"Oh, subverting expectations by flipping characters around even though it doesn't make sense, is TIGHT!" {characters now flipped in the Pitch Meeting}

I died a bit with laughter when I noticed the character swap gag in that video.  ;D
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

"ok, I feel, I feel like that's pretty messed up for a movie. [...] I did not like that sentence at all!"

"So that wacky editing thing, that's gonna match the brooding tone, right?" "Who's to say?"

Writer Guy saying, "Who's to say?" has become one of my favorite Pitch Meeting-isms of late.  :D

Yeesh.  I really don't understand the appeal of movies like Tenant.  Granted I haven't seen it, but the Pitch Meeting makes it look like a bunch of pseudointellectual mumbo-jumbo clumsily strung together into something resembling a "plot" which justifies some cool time-wobbly set pieces that Nolan really wanted to bring to the big screen.  Watching this movie must be the equivalent of trying to read a Thomas Pynchon novel when you're illiterate.

I haven't seen it yet but I am totally sure that Nolan started with "I want to try filming this" and worked backward.

Just like the movie, ha!  ;D

Spoilers for a film you've probably already heard or read all the spoilers you can stand about by now...  ::)
