Inception (non-spoiler) Thread

Postby Lightbeard » Sun Jul 18, 2010 12:54 am

Every review I've seen has said high things about it and the only downside is the complex plot. I'm going to see it next weekend but here is a discussion thread.

It's a layered plot, but I hesitate to call it complicated. It adheres strictly to its own logic, both before and after it explains the rules to you.

That said, I'm not sure how much I can discuss this movie without spoilers, so I will say "See it."

It's a great movie. The plot is complex, but not so much that you can't keep up. The dialog is really fast paced in some scenes, and I found myself wondering what had been said because it transpired so quickly (sad as it is, sometimes I feel like an ESL person trying to understand an english movie, dunno why this is).

Script, cast, cinematography, music, sound, story, all were superb.

Would definitely recommend.

Blorst?

I liked it.
I still have some questions about it though.

Agreed, this movie is excellent.

It's very hard to talk about this film beyond the released synopsis and feel like you're not giving something away. Nolan has once again earned his dollar from me.

I probably won't see it, if only because I hate dicaprio. No idea why, I just do.

Dumb reason to not see a movie of this caliber.

I'm not the biggest fan of DiCaprio either as I generally find him to be relatively annoying on screen. IMO he was the worst thing about Gangs of New York, The Departed, and Body of Lies. Which stinks because he was a major protagonist in those films. In this movie though, I think he was actually very good.

Different strokes for Different folks but DiCaprio is a very talented actor, and this film is just excellent.

I always hated him because of Titanic and all the girls in my class in middle/elementary school. I also tend to not like the roles he plays, for some reason I'm not fond of movies set in the mid 1900s.
But in recent years I have put that behind me. It's pretty great not disliking Leo D (as Vanifae said, he really is a very good actor).

Leo said it was the best movie he's ever made. And it -is- the best movie he's ever made.

This movie is worth the money watching it in the theatre, can't say that about many these days.

Awesome. I'm planning on seeing this sometime this weekend (wife + toddler are out of town, so I can go watch movies much more than normal). I liked movies like the 13th floor or Dark City, so I think I will really dig this one.
