^ inception just got the idea of dreams into dreams, but beside that it was a pure action movie... no deep story where the viewer can feel with the character like in memento, following, prestige, batman. it was just cool to watch... matrix had a similar but the more complex idea, but the viewer had to know the material of computers a bit.

seems to me like with inception he thought "i can play with the twist of dreams too, let's make a movie". of course this sounds a bit harsh, but p.e. in the dark knight he really made me believe how whole gotham city turned into chaos (which no movie did before), that the joker wasn't meant to be the usual criminal. in prestige there is neither good or bad (as i thought first), it's just the life for the perfect magic, it's nature versus science, with tesla it got a possible background of history.

Inception's about Cobbs character more than the whole dream stuff imo. The whole film is building up to his emotional moment of being able to see his kids again after going through all he has gone through, which is why in the end the whole dream/real life thing doesn't matter to him.

So I can see where you're coming from, Inception appealed to the masses because of it's numerous set pieces and action sequences but I think there was character depth in there aswell.

so this IS coming out in 2012. i read that, similar to sony pictures and spider-man, warner brothers was forced into fast tracking this because of some legal thing that would've lost them money.

i wonder why they chose this guy. more i see about this superman curse, more i question why anyone would touch it.


not lose money, lose the property. this is prob the same thing going on with sony and marvel (spider-man, x-men, fantastic four, ghost rider, punisher).

the movie studio bought the rights to the characters from the comic publishers and they have to keep using them or else the rights will expire and go back to Marvel or DC. that's why even though the last ghost rider and fantastic four movies sucked balls, they're still planning to make more. (ghost rider 2 is filming now, fantastic 4 reboot is in pre-production)

youre just being a movie snob.

inecption was not "just a pure action movie". it was as deep and thought-out as nolan's other movies, it just had the budget and means to have big set pieces and sequences like a "pure action movie".

if you haven't noticed, each of Nolan's movies have been progressively bigger and bigger. to me, that's a wonderful sign that each movie he does, he's learning some new technique and getting experience with bigger set pieces to bring to his next movie.

but i have not seen a drop in quality.

inception has great character development. i think Cobb was a very well developed character. you really feel bad for him when Mal kills herself and you really want him to reunite with his kids. the best part of that movie is the ending.

is it a dream? is it real?... truth of the matter is, it doesn't matter b/c you get to see Cobb back with his kids (which is all you really want for the guy after everything he goes through). then you realize.... Cobb doesn't care whether its a dream or real either. wait a minute.... in a sense... Cobb is YOU.

O_O

much deeper than "a pure action movie"

He looks the part.

I think Snyder knows what he's doing. Nolan definitely recommended Cavill though.

lol wtf, how is cobb me???
i couldn't give less a fuck if he finally sees his children... they were in the movie for about 2 minutes, you can barely see their faces and you think that's a great story?
it's the same in prestige: if you think it's about seeing his daughter you're missing the whole point. the child is just a catch in the story for the average viewer, nolan could have replaced it with everything (there's a name for such things, but i forgot).

well i could see a drop (a big one) in the quality of the story. the movie didn't really leave up questions for me, i just didn't care at the end. this shows me there a parts in the story, nolan didn't think far enough. i been amazed in all his earlier works, just not in this one. i think it's cause he was the only writer of inception.

a bigger movie doesn't mean it has more quality in the story...
if you ever dreamed in your life, you would know that the movie really didn't showed the dreams well. dreams are way more complex, blurry and incomplete (i didn't even really get how it worked with the machine in the movie tho). it's so fuckin hard to imitate dreams, and nolan just didn't good.

the best part watching the movie wasn't part of the movie for me. when i watched it in cinema a viewer was sleeping during the whole movie -> that's what genius! kinda interactive movies, playing with audience. that's what really leaved up the questions to me "do i really exist watching this movie? how did i come to the cinema? ...". i would love to see more such movies in cinema.

it's not a bad thing to just entertain the viewer. it's just not my thing... i like to getting crazy after watching a movie.

a genius part of the movie is that they didn't have to explain the dream machine or how it works. nolan was able to tell the story in a way where the audience just accepts that such a machine exists without questioning it too much b/c you're too engaged in other parts of the story.

i'm not sure about your dreams, but not all of my dreams are complex (howconfused, blurry, or incomplete. sometimes i have regular ass dreams (like the other night i dreamt that i applied for a new credit card). anyways, while you're dreaming, you never realize that you're in a dream (unless youre lucid) and it feels like real life. only when you wake up do u realize u were dreaming, and sometimes, it can get a little confusing. was this a dream or a memory? in that respect, the movie does an amazing job at this b/c some scenes.... there's still a debate of whether or not it was a "dream" or "real".

if you think that the dream sequences in the movie Inception need to have to kind of distinguishable trait (like blurriness, B&W, etc.) then you definitely missed the point of the movie. the whole concept was to blur the lines b/w reality and dreams.

i wish these non-creator -owned comic book movies could be made enough that they become more like comics, like creative teams changing, and one-offs like all-star superman or old man logan. not everything has to be a trilogy with "origin, aftermath and open ending"

been saying that. they're jumping pretty quick with the reboot button these days, so i can see that happening in the future where movies are done more like the comic series. once every origin story has been exhausted i guess...

there is no way there can be a live action movie of all star superman, there is just to content to cover even the animated movie didn't do it justice

Old man Logan was brilliant and i don't see that happening either unless they make it rated R

only seen all-star superman animated. i think it worked well enough, and it'd gain fans of the comic itself.

cmon tho, you can make anything pg-13. just imply lots of stuff, like violence, and be moderate with language and sex. i read a zack snyder interview talking about getting sucker punch down to a pg-13 and i was astounded to learn that taken got a pg-13. as did limitless and salt. not that it's surprising that the mpaa is biased towards violence, but whatever.

I don't think it so much matters who's playing Zod as much as how he's going to be portrayed.

We all know Zod as the one from the OG Superman movie. Let's see how Snyder plays this up.

PS - Michael Shannon is a legit actor.

IMO, ALL the superman movies have been ass. I've always felt like he's just too much "hero" for one hero, which is probably why its hard to make a good movie.

Seeing Chris Nolan as the producer and Zak as the director brings hope. As for villians, I would LOVE to see Doomsday.
