It's how I believe anyone should look at a movie. Judge it for what it is and what it presents and what you bring to it. Ebert's got it right.

Oh man, now I remember why I stopped listening to the /Filmcast. Lila, these are the types of shits you should get on for digging into elements of a movie unnecessarily. They don't add any insight, at all. Fuckin' fanboys.

I don't read fanboy reviews before I see a movie. I don't need someone else to judge it for me.

And thanks Mike.

I understand. Sorry if I came off as too harsh last night, that word kind of sets me off sometimes.

I like experiencing something fresh, then picking it apart afterward to figure out how it works and forget that other people have a different approach.

Lance, that /Film interview with White is not worth it.

I usually do my best to avoid reviews before seeing a film, but will check some reviews out after seeing it.

Indeed. Speaking of which, this is an interesting bit of criticism:

One thing that I really appreciated about the movie is that it never went out of its way to explain some of its elements. We really have no idea how the dream machines work, where they came from, how long they've been around, etc. There isn't even a single mention about the technology. It's just accepted that they exist. Without them, there would be no movie, but beyond that, they really play no role; The film isnt about the machines, it's about the experiences they make possible. It's strange to think that we know so little about such an important plot device, but in a way, it's refreshing.
Also, when does the movie take place? Are we ever told? It it the future? Doesnt really look like it. Alternate present? Possibly, but I dunno. Nolan could have easily given us a back story, but that would've taken so much away from the mystery of the world of Inception. Its interesting that we're trying to dissect a world we know so little about

Well, I agree with what you say, JT, but that's balanced out a bit by a shit-ton of exposition as the film progresses. Not saying that I had major issues with that, and in some respects a lot of it is necessary....but, a lot of the dialogue is dedicated to explaining the mechanics of how dream extraction and inception work, etc.

As a more global statement, I'll say that I do always like when a book or film drops you into its world and does not immediately explain every single thing....I like when events unfold, be it slowly or otherwise, and you begin to fill in some or all of the blanks of the world you're thrust into. And I guess that sort of points to why I always have and likely always like the sci-fi/fantasy genres, because they are both rife for world building/exploring.
