Popcorn Culture - Review: Tetris

Anyone who's anyone knows Tetris - the wildly popular videogame that kept players hooked in the 80s and is still enjoyed to this day. But unlike the game, the story behind the making of Tetris is anything but straightforward. Apple TV's newest watercooler film chronicles the life of Henk Rogers (Taron Egerton), who developed Tetris in 1988 and then risked it all by travelling to the Soviet Union in the hopes of going mainstream. In this episode, we review Tetris and its unorthodox part-puzzle-part-political-thriller concept, the performances of Egerton and crew, and the movie's musically driven energy.
