Well you could have engaged with the several lengthier posts by LMP and myself in here about it following your initial remarks, so I guess...?

About Inception? From what I could tell, the discussion very quickly gravitated toward Nolan's deficiencies as a director, which is not a topic I brought up nor especially had an interest in discussing. The only post I didn't respond to that pertained to the film specifically was your first post from over a day ago, which was a self-contained opinion that didn't necessitate a dialogue at the time.

I don't mind disagreeing, but I do take issue with you calling into question my way of viewing things for the second time in a week.

Huh. I guess reading the Inception thread a second time was necessary to understanding that remark.

The "over analyze" comment was a reference to your argument with Lila in that thread, which was tucked away in the pages NSW and Laz linked to. It was just there to make you laugh. I felt she and I had both done a really piss poor job explaining our opinions about Inception, so I made a wise crack about it and moved on.

And then, just to make sure you got that I was on your side, I proceeded in the very next post to say that no one way of viewing movies is the right one. If it were necessary for all of us to approach movies the same way before engaging in a discussion, this section would be completely dead.

Fair enough. Was just a tad disappointed to see what discssion there was drop off so unceremoniously.

Just speaking for myself here, I have a more difficult time jumping into a conversation about a film I haven't seen in a while because I lose a lot of the details that are useful in substantiating my opinions. It's been at least three years since I've seen Inception, so beyond offering my initial impression, it's easier for me to smile and nod.

Meanwhile, I can discuss American Hustle and Goodfellas for pages on end because I've seen them both in the last four months.

I didn't go back to that thread so the reference was lost on me. My mistake.

Just watched the trailer for this:

Draft Day (2014) - IMDb

Looks like it could be a lot of fun. Note the director (who I realize has been off his game for quite a long time).


EDIT: HAHAHAHA! I saw he had an upcoming film called Triplets and I thought to myself, "No...it...it couldn't be..."

But it IS: Ladies and gentlemen...the sequel you've all been waiting for. Triplets - IMDb

What's Reitman's last watchable movie? Kindergarten Cop? Did I just type those last two sentences?

There is nothing wrong with Kindergarten Cop.

Saw a trailer for that tonight. Looks like the most nothing movie ever. Unfunny, boring indistinct nothingness.

I own that. It's on my bookshelf. I look to it and smile each night before I go to bed.
