I thought the music could've been more tastefully done. it was like watching LOST with all that trombone swell.

the only thing that bothered me was the nonstop music as people were talking,
which i assume was there to give the illusion that the movie is moving faster than it is
it kind of made it seem like a nonstop trailer
enough already! silence is your friend

but yeah, other than that, wow

since i know the hype is steadily building for this flick...
just to clear this up, im often the first unabashed snob in the grade-school-logic 'whatever, people like it but iiiiii don't have to' line
really, its just a fun movie, really really fun
you can see it, its okay, you wont hate yourself, its not 'avatar'

As if you'd credit your friend when you could have retained all the kudos yourself, coz there would be no way of him/her knowing that you'd done so!! :lol:

FOOL!!

Go back to designing quirky yet modern decor derived from late Cubist sentiments, and hawking said decor in Milan, and attempting to break into the disparate yet lucrative Hong Kong market, only to find that your vision was just too far Left and too clumsily presented for those tradionalist fashionazis, Zara Sammak!

---> just kidding! :lol:


I saw it yesterday, but want to see it at least once more before I settle on my opinion of it. I will say that I was fully sucked in by the tension of the last 1/2 or so; that was some masterful editing.

The thing I wonder about is how conscious the Nolans are of the fundamental differences between mazes and labyrinths, or at least I wonder if I have it right myself. I understand the difference to be: a maze is a puzzle that obfuscates a single passage from one point to another and a labyrinth is a passage that follows a path from the periphery of a typically 7-ringed diagram to the center and then back out. A labyrinth could be seen as a symbol for an initiation rite where the individual seeks elevation at the center and returns to his original position as a new/renewed person; in a sense it helps the initiate prepare for what he will find at the center. A maze is something that should halt progress or, if it's too difficult, prevent it completely.

The reason I bring this up is that the Nolans, as writers, clearly have labyrinths and mazes on their minds, especially with the blatant use of Ariadne as the name for Ellen Page's character. Notice that she's originally introduced to construct "mazes" that will (If I may be so bold to suggest it) confound the Minotaur--Mol--stalking around Cobb's psyche. But, as the plot progresses she, Ariadne, goes from constructing mazes to leading Cobb, at the conclusion of the film, to his "center," which is more in line with how one navigates a labyrinth as opposed to a maze; this is easier to see when it is only after Cobb confronts Mol/the Minotaur at the center that he can return through the labyrinth (following the "thread"/kick that Ariadne leaves for him? to utilize her mythical role) to his original state as a "new" man.

It's a rough outline, but I want to watch it again to see if it fits. It wouldn't "explain" the whole movie, but I think it would show some of the mechanics of the plot and the characters' arcs.

where'd you copy and paste that from?

Author:  BABY SHAKER [ 22 Jul 2010, 15:34 ]
Post subject:  Re: Inception

I'm not telling you. no way. no how.
you'd only go there, kick the door open,
ask scads of stupid questions, point and shake your finger,
call names, stutter, correct opinions, attempt to resell a refused product,
and storm out without even delivering a half baked "well... thanks for
the conversation".


and you thought I was going to get offended by the copy & paste question. :lol:
