Inception

I didn't see it at midnight tonight, and my plans to see it tomorrow fell through. But since we probably all plan on seeing this, it warrants its own thread for reflection and discussion.

Have at it.

Ellen Page is one of the five best really famous lesbian Ellens in show business.

I'm seeing this on Sunday.

You're friends with Herschel Jew?*








*Impy, I could only sit on that for so long. 2-person in-jokes for the win.

To be honest, I was wondering why it took you so long to spring that.

In a related story, I recently changed my character to the exact model of Fletch Hillard and my title to Deputized. We need to get that co-op shit going soon.

Out of the first 153 critics on the Tomatometer, 65 of them give the film a perfect score. Many of those are from critics and bloggers who posted their Inception review last week, and began building it up as a masterpiece.

After reading through those reviews, they would make any critic who gives a less-than-perfect score sound disappointed. Sixty-five critics appear that way, as 31 give out a score just below perfect, and 34 say it is merely good. Meanwhile, 23 of them just say that it is a bad movie.

This Inception review breakdown divides those who flat-out love the movie, and those who merely like it - along with those completely underwhelmed. Since the film is expected to save the summer, and save originality in Hollywood, there is a lot at stake in how it is received. Most critics still suggest audiences should go see it, but they have differing views on what expectations they should have.

Some say they should go in expecting a classic film, or even a revolutionary one. But, others warn in their Inception review that inflated hopes will make the movie seem worse, and more of a letdown. The rest flat out say that Christopher Nolan is conning us, and that the emperor has no clothes.
trying to keep my expectations in check


My offices are just across the center from the largest screen west of the Mississippi, or I could drive up the road to the new discount multi-plex and see it for $6 on a smaller screen

Come on Deep, seriously....I could easily list 100 positive comments written thus far, but friends and reviewers.

I will see it

I am just trying to balance expectations

I am a big fan of Leo's recent work, since he has grown into a fully fleshed out man, from that (too) pretty boy kid in The Beach

I guess I just don't understand why you think it's incumbent upon you to balance expectations.

Hope you like it....

I really couldn't stand Page after Juno and the Cisco Systems commercials, but she's very good here. The cast really doesn't have a weak link. Tom Hardy (for those who haven't seen him before) is a revelation. D-Cap doesn't hit Shutter Island-level but of course that may be his best work, period. Cotillard is fantastic.

Some of the dialogue is a little stiff, but considering the subject matter exposition is unavoidable. Luckily, Levitt and D-Cap deliver it as well as possible.

I don't want to get deep into anything, but let me just say that as a feat of narrative juggling this may be without peer. the middle hour and a half is essentially one big sequence and the tension doesn't let up one bit throughout. Crowd was going crazy, clapping at various times (the movie has some great humorous bits), and a big response at the end, which is one of the best I've seen in quite a while.

Most of the 10 people I was with were ready to go right back and see it again. This has a lot in more common with Synecdoche, New York than I first thought (not that anyone's going to put that in the ads). Kaufman obviously has the more moving and denser script, but thematically they're not too far from each other.

Also, FYI, the Scott Pilgrim trailer was roundly booed (except for some loser next to me who was squealing in front of his girlfriend) and people were yelling out insults afterwards. Just sayin'.
