Now release ‘Tenet’ on Quibi, you cowards.
As reported by Engadget, YouTube user Bob Wulff crammed the two-and-a-half hour epic onto several Game Boy Advance cartridges. Five cartridges, to be exact, as Wulff claims the most you can get onto each one is about 30 minutes of video before it becomes effectively unwatchable. To be honest, a loud, indecipherable barrage of fantastical action like Tenet seems like it would be right at home on the Game Boy Advance, a handheld system built for tweens in the early aughts.
All kidding aside, Wulff’s endeavor is impressive. In order to get the film to fit on the Game Boy Advance’s miniature screen, he had to reduce the video to a measly 6 frames per second with a resolution of 192×128. (In the video, he says this is “quite possibly the worst way to view Tenet,” which is objectively true and yet I still respectfully disagree.) Ideally, the next step would be to make Tenet somehow playable as a Game Boy Advance game, which could potentially result in the movie actually holding my attention for longer than five minutes without frustrating the shit out of me. Check out the video below. Tenet is currently available in virtually every format known to humankind, if for some reason you’d rather watch it that way.
