In June 2020, when the movie Tenet was launched, and when most components of the world have been in lockdown, Christopher Nolan mentioned “It is a movie whose picture and sound actually wants to be loved in your theaters on the large display”. This assertion, coming from Nolan in the center of a pandemic, actually upset YouTuber Bob Wulff, who runs the WulffDen channel. So, “out of spite”, Wulff determined that “we’ve to put this on a Game Boy instantly”. He acknowledges that that is “fairly probably the worst way to view Tenet.”
Wulff split up the movie across five Game Boy Advance cartridges. He even made customized labels for every of these cartridges.
The movie being split across a number of cartridges is not occasion the worst half. He had to compress the video down to six frames per second with a decision of 192 x 128 and a whopping 8 KB/s bitrate. Additionally, the software program he used to crush the video down sped up the video by a 3rd by default.
Additionally, do not forget, while you view this on the Game Boy, the already-heard-to-hear dialogues can be a lot worse on a Game Boy Advance speaker.
Truly after I do watch Tenet in IMAX 70mm in the future I is perhaps bringing ear plugs cuz of that overly loud ear bursting sound design after which take them off throughout dialogue scenes cuz I gained’t give you the chance to hear the tremendous muffled dialogues.

“The viewing experience on that is completely abysmal,” says Wulff surprisingly fortunately.
The Game Boy Advance additionally does not help 3.5 mm headphone jack, and in the event you quick ahead the movie, it crashes the ROM.
Though, Wulff suggests this may very well be a “enjoyable mission for smaller movies”. Tenet is a two and a half hours lengthy movie.
