Just saw Inception.
That movie is hailed as some sort of "game changer" much like what matrix did for special effects, but this time, it's for intelligent, thought provoking concepts and delivery.
Really, that in itself is just all kinds of sad. If that is a change of game, the game so far must have been pretty borked but I guess the existence of transformers 3 or twilight 2 says it all.
The movie itself was okay.
Some wasted opportunities, a little too dragged out and a little too demanding on absolute focus on every single line each character says but in the end, you'll probably not regret that you saw this.
It's just a bit frustrating since this is about the vast, limitless space of dreams. Endless possibilities yet in the end of the day, all Leo and friends do is fighting gunmen with karate kicks and more guns.
No one at least kills the evil gunmen by pointing at them and yelling "bang", no one flaps their arms to fly or anything.
The gunmen, projections of someones subconscious btw, always remain dudes in suits and not monsters, cavemen, storm troopers, you name it.
Those are pretty boring dreams.
There is a very frustrating explanation for why everything is so dreadfully normal though so that's not the movies fault, it's just my preference. And the fact that this is over 2 hours of it.
It's polarizing that way but even if you hate it, it's still interesting and if you're like me who will watch a movie only because you want to see where someone goes with an interesting/absurd concept, chances are you won't hate it.
Chances are, you will want to see it again to pick up on the (many) little details you inadvertently missed cause despite all the chances it missed, after all that could have been, it does anything but falling short on meaty details.
Everything is there for a reason. Everything.
Oh and the soundtrack
is pretty amazing at times. Very iconic, very distinctive.
