Recently I was contemplating making a list of my favorite scenes in film, but I decided that instead of just…
Your mind is the scene of the crime.
Cobb, a skilled thief who commits corporate espionage by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets is offered a chance to regain his old life as payment for a task considered to be impossible: "inception", the implantation of another person's idea into a target's subconscious.
"Inception," at its most basic, is two things. It is a heist film dressed in science fiction conventions; and it is a study of a man trying to free himself from a near-suffocating past. "Inception," at its more complex, is a cerebral pop-masterpiece. It is an enthralling combination of thought-provoking, layered story-telling and sumptuous aesthetics enhanced by near-flawless editing, sound design, effects, and musical score. Driven by a pitch-perfect cast and the confident directorial hand of Christopher Nolan, "Inception" is a brilliant and unrivaled piece of filmmaking.
The Wolf of Wall Street stars in Christopher Nolan's smart dreamy dream so much more than just a popcorn muchin' Hollywood blockbuster. Ocean waves. Sand castles. Mush. Godzilla's pal. JGL's natural born screen charisma. Falling house. Triple dream? Fast train. Top spin. Poor Lukas. Betting on a chance. Sir Michael Caine is the motherfucker. Ellen after Juno. Maze test. Complicated as fuck architectural work. You can share dreams? Grumpy strangers. Moving mirrors. Dreamin' like you're Biggie Smalls. Intense baby mama drama. The totem. The moment you realize Tom Hardy is the real deal. Why doesn't Dileep Rao act more? Cold water. Sgt. Barnes. Verbal Kint's best mate. Scarecrow. The crazy as fuck hunch that Christopher Nolan likes to use the…
With big films like this I tend to weigh different aspects of filmmaking and rate them separately. The final rating is then an average of all scores. I don't know why, but I feel I need to structure this review that way and try to give an accurate analysis. Whenever one of Nolan's films is criticized it tends to veer towards a right wrong discussion. Nolan has a huge fanbase and they are welcome to defend his films, but as a self proclaimed 'Nolan indifferent' I honestly have to say that I haven't enjoyed his latest efforts and often for the same reasons. I will try to write up how the final rating is compiled. My apologies in advance for…
Taking ideas from many sci-fi classics & seamlessly blending it with the ambience of James Bond thrillers, Inception is an original, inventive & ambitious sci-fi wonder from Christopher Nolan that manages to live up to its monumental hype & expectations amazingly well, and even today continues to be the subject of discussion amongst many movie-buffs, thanks to its multi-layered narration, surreal structure & ambiguous ending.
A contemporary sci-fi thriller set within the architecture of the mind, the story of Inception presents a future where technology exists to enter people's dreams & share them. The plot concerns Cobb; a highly skilled extractor notable for stealing ideas & confidential information from his target's subconscious, who assembles a team to carry out a near-impossible task for a wealthy businessman…
A week ago I wrote a particularly hateful piece on Christopher Nolan's latest abomination, The Dark Knight Rises. Since then I've been thinking hard, perhaps too hard, about why it is that I can't for the life of it enjoy the critically acclaimed “masterpiece” Inception. At the time it came out it was THE thing to talk about, nothing even came close to being as hot as the apparently intellectually stimulating blockbuster that is this movie. I had seen The Prestige, which I just loved, and the two Batman movies when I first saw it, so I was reasonably excited about it, especially because I'm a big fan of the Sci-Fi genre. The problems, however, are many-fold and it is…
"She locked away a secret deep inside herself. Something she once knew to be true, but chose to forget."
Inception is hard to talk about at this point because it was such a phenomenon when it was released that so many things (both good and bad) have already been said about it. It's not only hard to justify the existence of yet another review of the film because the chance that I'm going to say something new at this point is fairly low (I'm not), it's also hard because in order to articulate my opinion I have to make reference to all these other pre-existing opinions about the film and about Christopher Nolan as a filmmaker.
I was extremely excited…
Boy, watching some of these oldish movies makes me rethink my whole top ten. Wonder what would happen if I go back further with movies even older? Who cares, Inception is awesome, that's all that matters.
Por ahora no escribiré.
Es buena pero confusa al menos para mi, todos esos actores hacen una muy buena combinación, vale la pena ver.
Ive tried to watch this film about four times and fallen asleep halfway through which is ironic. Finally after watching it I can say it felt like a whole load of nothing for me... I was told it was mind blowing and id never get the twist??? The dream within a dream situation was there in the first 10 minutes. Real disappointment
A blockbuster with a difference - intelligence mixed with a just about plausible story, makes this one of the strongest science fiction films in a while. A very good cast also propels this along, with Christopher Nolan, perhaps coming off the back of a very successful Dark Knight audience, really cementing his position as a 'big time' director, who's name itself now carries significant weight to any project.
Incredible movie. Mindbender.
An original concept and heaps of action. Plus who doesn't love to dream?
All the films from all the editions, including those subsequently removed, presently totalling 1177. An easy way of seeing how…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
