So 3.5 weeks later I finally finished the Snyder cut lat night. My initial impression stands. The climactic battle was, IMO, the best superhero film battle scene I've seen. Though it can't match Endgame's richness in resolving almost every open strand of nearly 2 dozen prior films, it benefitted from a smaller cast that kept it focused, instead of Endgame's endless stream of characters, which felt like a Main Street Disney World parade that goes on for too long ("do they have to use every character in their IP?").

Worst part was the extended coda, which undermined the emotions of the climax, and seems unnecessary as they don't plan to continue the Snyderverse.

I saw Tenet in a theatre last September. Watched it again over the last couple of days and I think I'm at 70-8-% comprehension level of what happened. It helped to watch this time with subtitles on so I could understand all the dialogue that is buried in the sound mix.
