Parallax: Last night I dreamed I was in a giant lake full of milk teaching monks how to juggle canteloupes.


Did you wake up when the woman sitting next to you on the bus punched you?

realmolo: L.D. Ablo: thecpt: Don't worry idiots who couldn't follow inception, the execs will still force him to stop the movie or slow it down repeatedly to explain every five minutes.

Nah, Nolan does that on his own.  He can't write anything but exposition.  There's no character development.  His direction is so flat it looks like a soap opera.  Zero humor.  Gaping plot holes.  Nolan is the most successful bad director of our time.

James Cameron takes a lot of knocks.  But that guy knows how to develop a character and keep a story going.  Nolan's snoozefests don't compare.

I completely agree.

Which is why Nolan's "Batman" movies are terrible. I'm pretty confident that history is going to agree with me, too. 20 years from now, people will watch Nolan's "Batman" movies and say "Boy, those are really boring and plot-less".

James Cameron knows how to develop a character?!!

blue_2501: James Cameron knows how to develop a character?!!


James Cameron used to. Sarah Conner. Ellen Ripley. Bishop. Hell, Newt is remarkable for being a non-annoying kid in a movie. As a general rule, when a director starts migrating into gigantic special-effects laden epics, he loses his ability to develop characters. There are exceptions.

But you can see this is true in Nolan's career, too.  Memento has a lot of characters, from Carrie-Ann Moss at her trashy best, to Joe Pantoliano's smarmy smartass. Guy Pearce did a great job playing Brad Pitt.

Parallax: Inception wasn't confusing at all.  It was just stupid.

Who here ever has dreams that mundane?  They're three layers in and it's still a boring everyday kind of environment (only it's cold out and there's these skiers).

Last night I dreamed I was in a giant lake full of milk teaching monks how to juggle canteloupes.  Typical messed-up stupid crap your brain shats out while you sleep... nothing you'd need a spinning top to tell you wasn't really happening...


Did you wake up in a puddle?

That's not the mystery.  The mystery is whose puddle it was.

i was confused by batman.  where here the *BOOFS* and *POWS* when batman was fighting?  were they supposed to be dance scenes?  I DONT UNDERSTND

I was confused with rises; batman specifically said that some days you can't get rid of the bomb, but then HE GOT RID OF IT. Complete contradiction.


It was misdirection. Was that really so confusing? He was planting the idea so they wouldn't think it was all a big misdirection to fake his death.

Nolan can plan then

I actually feel really dense for not realizing that the climax of TDKR was stolen from the '66 Batman until this moment.

Shostie: If you found Inception confusing you should probably revert to watching Nick Jr. and reading coloring books.


Liquid_Bacon: 'Inception' was confusing? I'm confused.


I was confused why Michael Caine didn't just take the kids to France and circumvent the whole problem

This made me chuckle.

MadSkillz: I like Sunshine despite the horror movie last third. I believe that it's likely that there was no way to get that last act to work without some sort of 'race against time' theme. Otherwise, they woulda sidled up, set up their shiat, and finished the job


This.

Sunshine is a solid movie. Admittedly the last third doesnt work as well as Hal going all murdery but what can you do?

Inception was trippy, but not particularly confusing.  Maybe you're just not that bright?

First 2/3rds of Sunshine was some of the most compelling science fiction I'd seen in a long time.  Last 1/3rd was one of the least interesting slasher flicks I'd ever seen.  It really made me sad.

Well, glad you enjoyed it more than me, anyways.

I want to like it thoroughly, but just can't.


t3knomanser: Easily his best film, although I haven't seen Following. Nolan's weakness is directing action scenes. It seems like they might have flowed okay on the storyboard, but once you actually try and chain those comic book panels into a cohesive shot, it all falls apart.


Fair enough, aye.

I think you'd dig Following, though.  It's on Netflix Streaming last time I checked.


t3knomanser: As for Inception, it was a basic heist movie with some sleight of hand to make it seem less simple.


I think the reason I *liked* Inception so much was that it was a heist movie at its heart.  I'm a sucker for a good heist movie.

Christopher Nolan is doing a space epic with time travel?

Going mental will shield you against the effects of burning off all the skin on your body and give you super sun strength.

Yea, when the wife and I were watching that along with the style of filing the madman we were both taken out of the film. Too jarring to view and too ridiculous to believe (and yes, we accepted everything else in the premise).
