So, if you go see a movie and want to review it, putting it here would be a good thing.

Recent Viewings: Hancock and Wall-E

Hancock: 3 out of 5 - This movie gets stars for how long it remains awesome.  About 60% of the way through the movie, the plot twists, and then again, and then again, and you just hope the movie's over, but then they have to resurrect it again.  The special effects?  Great.  Will Smith's beginning of movie character?  Awesome.  Interaction among characters?  For the most part great.  There was one scene where he pwns a guy with a zagnut bar.  That was ROFLAWESOME.  The premise of the movie was quite tasty, but after the plot twist, everything becomes contrived.  I would have respected them if the end of the movie ended when you think it should have (barring all hopes, putting it out of its misery XD), but the climax and denouement of the movie was hard to believe.  Otherwise, SEE IT FOR THE ZAGNUT.

Wall-E: 5.5 out of 5 - This is like the best movie I have seen in 2-3 years, possibly longer.  The story is well told with like extremely limited dialogue for about 85% of the movie - everything else is body language, and it works really naturally.  It's a cute story, full of surprises, and full of throwbacks to older movies and not so old movies - the first 10 minutes of the movie, I thought I was watching a G rated version of Idiocracy XD  Anyways, if you haven't seen it, please do.  It's cute :D

Does it matter if you saw the movie in theaters or not?

Cause I just watched Paprika, 5 out of 5 here. Crazy movie, good plot, and crazy animation. Think a visual acid trip with an overall good everything. The plot may have seemed to be there just as an excuse for the insane animation. But it has a lot of good morals to it in a way. But that's not saying the plot wasn't good. It did everything right, as in built up good characters, and was pretty original, and explained itself pretty well. Go rent it, or download it, cause I don't think it even aired in US theaters. But damn, it was good, very serious at times though, but has some nice sides which make you just feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

(Also, there is one hilarious scene during the climax which isn't funny at all, but if any of you watch it, you should catch it and get a good laugh out of it. It completely killed the mood though.)

But it is indeed, "Your brain on anime." as they say. A must see if you haven't already. I think this is also by the guy who did Paranoia Agent. Good stuff though...

I saw Wanted P: I should have listened to my friend and went to go see Wall-E, but either way, the ending of Wanted was so worth it. So epic :3

Hancock = a bad movie to see in the middle of LA with a theater full of black people.  Anyway, yeah, that's where I saw it, right before AX.

I thought it was pretty good (for what I actually heard of it), and it was better than I originally expected.  The end was ok but I was hoping for it to be a bit different. 

Also, I saw Akira for the first time the other day.
Character art = sucks.  Couldn't tell the females from the males half the time.
Story = Omg stupid.  I walked out still not knowing WHY things happened the way they did.  There was no reason for anything, it all just happens.

Once upon a fish, a dude named akira had some special powers.  He was basically mutilated and dissected for science experiments (to find out why he had powers) and all that remained of him was some tubes with goops and miscellaneous body parts.  This was done because he went berzerk, blew up tokyo, and started WWIII.  These tubes were kept at nearly absolute zero temps for later researchers to examine.  One day, someone runs experiments on humans, makes some special people, they remain children but shrivel up into old wrinkly peoples, have some powers, and can't leave the building.  These people were supposed to be like akira but weren't.

So later they find someone else named Tetsuo and he supposedly has a similar "wavelength" to akira.  Some scientists capture him, mess with him, and now he has powers, which are enhanced by some scientist dude.  Later, he can't control his powers due to the scientist, so he mutates into a giant ugly blob of flesh, crushes his girlfriend to death, and then dies when the other experimented kids bring akira back after they told everyone he was dead and could never return.  So, akira shows up, makes tetsuo disappear (the kids die too).  End of movie.  I guess there was more to this than what I wrote but it wasn't very obvious (or I wasn't paying much attention).

Sound = like, 3 music tracks in the whole movie.  Bad.
Overall = Lame.  I don't know why this movie was supposed to be so amazing.

The ONLY GOOD THING ABOUT THIS MOVIE was the background art.  I don't think I've seen any show or movie has ever had such detailed background art.  That was the only impressive thing about this movie.

I loved Akira actually. It was pretty pleasing for me, just cause I like those types of movies. The post-apocalyptic cyberpunk setting was the key part, along side of the realistic violence and amazing animation which made it for me. Some of the scenes felt a bit eerie, in the sense of what was going on, and the color scheme, which I really liked.

The plot and characters are kind of mediocre, but I will save the time and just say: If you haven't read the manga (The huge 2,000+ page, 6 volume manga) of Akira, you probably wont like the movie at all. The movies animation, and violence kept me interested at first, but when I read the manga, I had a new appreciation for it, since it goes beyond the movies chopped up plot (Which killed it).

Because there is a lot going on in the movie. The "Things just happen" are because a lot of stuff is missing or compressed causing it to make no sense at all during a lot of scenes. Then again, if you didn't like the movie, I doubt you would go out and pay around $100+ for the manga.

But I felt the same way with the first GITS movie, as in if you don't know any background on it, you wont enjoy it as much, or at all. It is a bit of a hit and miss, as me and my bro LOVED Akira without reading the manga. But I guess our ADD was pleased with the pretty visuals and violence.  :P

Ghost in the Shell had philosophical angst to fill in the gaps where there wasn't jaw-dropping awesomeness.  Many people were turned off to that whole prospect, but that was probably my favorite part about the movie.  It made me think, are there bugs that aren't software created?

Oh, of course, I love GITS for that alone. But the action and plot itself in the movie weren't to entertaining to me. The manga helped explain the characters more, and give a reason to what was going on. I was really confused when I first watched it I guess (Maybe it was because I was to young to get it at the time.). But the plot of the series is just awesome, as is the Major.  8) 

I was turned back to it after reading some of the mangas since it wasn't to entertaining at first for me at first. But again, I like those cyberpunk/futuristicy movies, to bad I haven't to many.  :(

Cause I just watched Paprika, 5 out of 5 here. Crazy movie...
CRAZY ASS MOVIE.

Wanted - WANT TO SEE

Saw Kung Fu Panda not too long ago.

Animation - 3/5 It was good, but too cartoonish. I know this is what they were aiming for and they hit it, but sometimes it's hard to follow a character's movements. Sometimes it's cool to see a blur of fists, but it gets a little old.

Story - 4/5 a nice little tale, but not an EPIC STORY.

Casting - 5/5 I lol'd at Jack Black's performance and Duston Hoffman was a nice touch. Jackie Chan was neat to hear, but he had barely any lines. Luci Lu, Angelina Jolie, just a few good names.


Overall - 4/5 A nice little flick, not a MUST SEE, but a good one nonetheless.

I was very displeased with the violence in akira.  The way it was always spoken of, I thought it would be a bit less violent and more philosophical and such, but it wasn't.  I always figure movies suck when compared to their original printed counterparts, so no surprise there that the manga's better.  Still, I wasn't really pleased with the story so I probably won't bother reading it.

Exactly, but it is a big hit an miss. Its just seen as a classic by many, so its usually praised as such. And the violence was just fun to watch for me, it kept me amused throughout it.

OH, also, I just found my VHS for Grave Of The Fireflies... Time to get the tissue box and VHS player so I can cry away my manliness into womanhood.

I don't know why, but that movie was just sad, but incredibly amazing during every moment. Anyone with a brain should see this movie now. Long story short, it's about a brother and little sister (AKA Seita and Setsuko respectively) who's village gets bombed during the latter years of WWII. During the bombing their mother is killed and they are left to fend for themselves during the time of war and face many of the harsh realities of it. Its epic in every sense, and equally sad. It is acclaimed by many as the best anime ever, and I can agree just for how amazing it is. 

All I can say is, Watch, Watch, Watch Watch Watch.  8D

Saikano was the same way for me, in fact, as a little bit grown-up version of grave of the fireflies, or so I've been told.  Also, the love story changes the focus a bit, but the general message of the story is "WAR IS BAD BUT LOVE IT ARE GOOD"

The Dark Night - Just saw it, why didn't you? Go see it now, I'm not even explaining it, it was THE BEST movie I have ever seen. I now understand why Heath Ledger went crazy,  cause only a crazy man could act that amazing. Every scene was perfect, and Heath blew my mind, I now understand why cowboys go gay for him. My mind was blown, go see it, don't wait, go. Its worth it, ARGH that was incredible!!

All I will say, "Do you want to see a pencil disappear?"

(Seriously, I'm not joking, I have never seen such an amazing movie, and oh, Jack Nicholson has NOTHING on Heath Ledger, and I don't think anyone else will, ever.)

Bumping this, since I am going to be watching more movies lately! Just watched two today, kind of an odd mix, first was Lupin the III: First Contact, second was THX 1138.

Lupin the III: First Contact was just that, uhm, yeah. It was the story of how Lupin and the gang met up. Typical Lupin antics were everywhere, action a plenty and tons of crazy tricks. Great movie, go rent it or something if you like Lupin, I was pleased with it. The plot is pretty much that of a typical episode of any of the Lupin series, here's Lupin, he wants to steal something. In the process he gets involved in Fujiko, and Jigen, and eventually you find out the treasure he is after draws the attention of Goemon. So it pretty much is a good intro to the characters, and what they are good at, and a good intro to the series if you never got into it. Grade A stuff imo.

Thx 1138, was just weird, if you have ADD you probably wont like it. Very silent, and somewhat bland colors are kind of a turn off (F*ckin' everything is white) but the movie is a sci-fi classic, if there ever was one. It was pretty much amazing visually, despite the bland colors, but that in itself leads to some amazing scenes visually. Also the way it was done, for 1970 was truly only capable of George Lucas, simply amazing movie. Very little dialogue, but that enough was very odd. The whole movie was odd I guess you can say, but I was left wanting to see more like it.

Because of that, my next movies to watch are Logan's Run, and A Clockwork Orange (again). Should hold me over till Netflix sends me more to watch!

Quote from: ManyNekoZ
Review: The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

Why, Universal, why?

This movie has got to be the worst I've seen in a long time. The story was a complete let down, the acting (excluding Jet Li) was horrible, the soundtrack got so annoying hearing the same EPIC MOMENT music at the most non-epic times, it was pumped with lazy CG; which leads me to ask Universal... WHY? This series is completely dead and they try to milk it. You know when you sit in a bad movie and you watch it till the end, because some part of you hopes it will pick up? It doesn't... The first thirty minutes make you want to walk out. There were several scenes with skimpy dressed women and sexual references, all of which were non-relevant to their scenes. NOTHING in this movie was realistic. Total let down, DON'T SEE IT, not even worth a rent. If you are absolutely bent on watching this movie, then I suggest getting it from Netflix, to watch it once and it be done with. It hurts to even mention watching it.

Quoted from my review on Fandango...

I went to go see Taken with Liam Neeson last night and later in the evening I saw Inkheart with Brendan Fraser.

Taken-5/5
This movie was terrific, the plot was tried and true but it was amazingly suspenseful. Liam Neeson's character was a fairly unique hero and he definitely gave this movie some serious work. Best movie I've seen in a very long time. Good pacing, great acting, and some amazing drama, suspense, and action a perfect mixture. I left the theatre just thinking WOW. Definitely a "see it in theatres" caliber movie.

Inkheart-3.5/5
It's a PG rated kids movie so it's a fairly simple plot, the acting isn't amazing except for a supporting character called Dustfingers this actor was the best in the entire cast, you truly felt for this guy. It wasn't bad but my overall suggestion would be to give this one a rent.

No matter how hard Liam tries, he is still Qui-Gon Jinn to me. Though I did really want to see Taken since the first time I saw the trailer it did look awesome. Good to hear they followed through and made a good movie, not a good commercial. (If you know what I mean.)

Monsters vs Aliens-5/5
Wonderful, pure fun, classic dreamworks kid friendly humor with some very adult themes added in. Had me seriously guffawing at some points (not easy to do)and actually had some decent sad/emotional pieces that they didn't dwell on for too long adding a strong emotional component without breaking the fun of the movie. Good characters including Hugh Laurie and Seth Roegen, overall it's a really fun movie.

Perfect. This movie is perfect, amazing action and pacing; beloved characters true to their original counterparts yet still developed and interesting. I went with two people who had never watched the original series and they loved it, I watched it religiously and loved it all the more. Throwback references that catch you almost unaware and moments that are truly touching, funny, and amazing.

Wolverine Origins-4/10
Not Great. Just weak, bad CG, dumb characters, and boring development, would not see again.

ST - About sums it up.

W:O - Agreed.  The end was gay too and made less technical sense than I expected.  Also, apparently there's multiple endings, who does THAT for theatrical release?  Nobody, stunts like that should be DVD only extras.

Oh hey, forgot about this thread.

I've seen a few movies recently and might write a blurb for them, although they're kind of old.

Up - 110/5 - I must simply get everyone to watch this movie.  It looks good, it's told really well, there's more morals to the story than you can shake a stick at, the characters are really believable, there's enough laughs in it.  If you liked/loved Wall-E, Up is the next sliced bread.  I loved Wall-E, like it was my favorite movie ever, and this one trumped it so hard.  If Pixar keeps making movies outdoing themselves, I can't imagine what the next 5 years look like.

I loved UP, especially the short film in the beginning. Sock and I were ROTFLing all over the place.

On a separate note:
Quote
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - 9/10 - Honestly, who hasn't seen this movie yet? Good movie, better then the first, go see it when you can.
Special effects 9/10 - Animated characters are believable, but sometimes they're a little too complicated. Michael Bay is known for lots of explosions and the ever-sickening shaky cam, as the first Transformers demonstrates well. However, this movie had less shaky cam and was a little easier to watch.
Casting 10/10 - Everyone from the first movie, plus some new faces/voices. Sideswipe FTW.
Story 8/10 - The original story has been modernized and altered. Some would say it's for the best, however I enjoy the original as this was the foundation that made Transformers popular in the first place. It's still fun to watch though.

G.I. JOE
Quote
So... You like big guns and explosions?
Special Effects 7/10 - They were ok, but there was a lot of ridiculous moments. Like the SUV the bad guys were driving was ridiculously armored and they could summon weapons from practically nowhere. The physics were a little screwy as well. What can you expect though, honestly it's a kids toy of course it's going to be ridiculous, and the fact that it's a movie by Stephen Sommers makes it a mix for a MANLY EXPLOSION GUNS AND BOOBS extravaganza.
Cast 7/10 - They played there roles well, Sommers has a way of creating over acting.
Story 7/10 - Classic good guy bad guy story where bad guy wants to destroy/rule the world and a good guy/a team of good guys do what it takes to stop him/her. Add in a love interest, a past love interest, and a rejoining of said past love interest, and call it a day.
Now I don't hate Sommers, it's just his recent movies have been a little over the top. I loved the original Mummy and even Mummy Returns...

District 9
Quote
Certainly an interesting movie to say the least.
Special Effects 8/10 - All the weapons were awesome. The "prawns", referring to the aliens, were well done and believable. I was a little put off by the amount of gore, though.
Cast 10/10 - This is what I'm talking about, you get some actors that no one has heard about and search for that new talent. This is certainly shown in this movie.
Story 7/10 - Originality, that is one of the major things driving this movie. It has a good background of the characters and a compelling ending. I wasn't sure where to put this, but the reason I gave it a 7 instead of 10 is because of the language. I honestly think this would have been a perfect movie if there was less gore and language.
Overall 8/10 - Good movie, just not perfect.

Yeah, having just eaten lunch no less than 30 minutes before the movie, District 9 is a real stomach turner at times.  Quite the ugly mess of stuff at times.

Liked the originality, liked the actors.
Disliked the MASS AMOUNTS OF BLOOD AND GORE, disliked the first 20 minutes of the movie for boredom.

Okay, so 20 years ago this spaceship lands in Johannesburg, South Africa. Well not really lands, but hovers. Anyway people have no idea what it is, it just hovers over the city. Well some time passes and people are starting to wonder what it really is, so they basically cut into it and start poking around. They find these aliens who look like they've been there for some time. Over a million malnourished, distraught, aliens. So they bring them down to earth and form a base of operations, where the aliens can eat and sleep, temporarily. Well after a while they end up staying longer then we anticipated, and the base becomes a slum area known as District 9. The movie is a mock documentary about the relocation of these aliens. They mainly focus on Wikus, the main character, and his experiences with D9. The guns are BADASS, like something straight out of a video game.

Ponyo - Dub

A fish with a face becomes a girl in a little mermaid like tale.  It's cute, the animation is meh at the beginning but gets better quickly.  There's no real plot or free will from the characters, but it's cute and wacky, and Liam Neeson.  They wasted voice acting on this, but it wasn't bad at all.  HAAAAAAM!  Not the best Miyazaki film, but cool themes throughout.

I need to watch Ponyo, what I have watched lately

Bullitt - 9/10
It's a classic and an absolute amazing movie, most people just focus on the car chase, but damn, everything about this movie was good. I don't need to review it though just watch it, its awesome.

Koyaanisqatsi - 8/10
Odd, haunting, visually appealing, life changing movie. It's old, but good and very eerie. I loved it and it kinda changed my outlook on life in a way. Something about the ending, it was very symbolic and haunting and the best way to end it. The movie itself is pretty much watching things happening to eerie Philip Glass music and if you get into it you can get a lot of messages out of it. It has a lot of beautiful scenes despite it having no actors or narration, and those scenes are what stick with you the most.

The Shining - 9/10
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.  Oh and Redrum (such an amazing movie)

what else, oh yeah
GI Joe - 5/10
Average Hollywood blockbuster, nothing really to do with GI Joe, except for names. Action was good, it was fun to watch, but damn Hollywood, stop ruining my childhood!

Happiness - ??/10
To odd to rate, I don't recommend watching it but it had its moments. Philip Seymour Hoffman was good in it, but idk. It was just weird and boring but so weird you wondered how weird it could get. Lots of funny moments doing with child rape though, it made me openly laugh out loud at times. When the child rapist's family was sneaking out of the house and his son wanted to run back in the home to get his Tamagotchi with SERIAL CHILD RAPIST spray painted on the wall was a hilarious scene. Yes it was a sick movie.

And that's all I've watched lately, I have dozens of movies to watch but I haven't gotten around to watching them! Oh well, I have a lot of free time so who knows?   :awesome:

Just watched this today. "Cute" is an understatment, "adorable" doesn't quite seem to do it either, how about... "makes you feel warm inside". I agree, it's not his best work, but still whimsical and adventurous. I felt kind of out of place, being that creepy guy that sits alone in a theater full of kids...

Just saw Ponyo also (went with a bunch of the new biostat grad students... funny enough, we were the only ones there). Super cute stuff, and I loved how really ordinary things suddenly became awesome (which is something that they try to do with anime a lot, but it doesn't really work out THIS well).

Unfortunately, the ending was a huge anticlimax and felt really rushed. Oh well...

Where the Wild Things Are - 4/5

This had some definite cute/cool/neat/awesome moments, but overall, the movie felt like it lacked a point. It's pretty much one of the most emo things I've ever seen, too. Basically, the kid shows up on the island, lies to the monsters (well, figures since he didn't want to get eaten), then proceeds to screw everything up for everyone until they all hate each other. Then suddenly everyone is cool with him again and he leaves the island, goes home, and his mom is also suddenly cool with him again, the end.

I don't really think it's suitable for kids. I mean, there's not much offensive in there, but it's way too unhappy. Also, it isn't really clear whether he learned anything at all from being a total ass to everyone.

Yeah my brother saw it and told me to not bother with it actually, his review was "Movie started, stuff happened, it ended and I left"

Also movies I have recently watched:

Zombieland - 10/10
Overall amazing movie, probably the first original movie I have seen in a while. Great plot, great characters, very funny with enough laughs and enough zombie killing to please anyone with a fantastic execution. There is one really amazing scene which most people won't see coming which I loved. Really, it was a great movie, I hope there isn't a sequel though. The whole movie really was just a breath of fresh air with just a bunch of originality which I really didn't expect due to holywood's current trend of craptastic movies. Really people, see it

Phantasm 1 - 4 - ??/10
These movies really piss me off. From the first to the fourth I felt like more could be done, especially in the fourth, but in all they are amazing. The first is by far the best just due to the atmosphere and overall sense of mystery built in it. All the movies keep the mystery but slowly answer questions. They all kinda suffer following typical horror movie themes but its plot is what drives it. I just thought more could be done and the last two really could have been better and the fact a 5th wont be made it makes me sad since the plot was gold.

The movies overall execution was amazing in the first, but good in the other two and poor in the fourth. My friend said that the ending to the fourth was fantastic since it left things open to interpretation but I was just left hanging asking for a better movie which built up more mystery as the first did.

Idk, for a series like this I loved it, some of the action scenes are amazing but really the first is where it's at, the 2nd and 3rd seem to be a bit to much filler and the fourth was just executed poorly which really makes me wish it was re-done but in all, its a classic series any sci-fi horror fan should see.

Oh and the soundtrack is amazing, the theme to the movie is one of the greatest in any horror movie ever... erm, yeah... I know  didn't really review the movies plot, but if I had any idea as to what it was about I would go into it, they are very interesting and complex movies they just raise to many questions which I wish they explored more.

I wouldn't really call it bad, but it was pretty much the definition of unremarkable.

Surely the overhyped movie of the season.

So, there's an indie movie called Primer that everyone should watch.  It's pretty trippy and you'll end it very confused, but then if you watch it more times after that, you begin to notice things that make complete sense and it all begins to fall into place.  Quite an interesting movie to say the least.

Two movies to review today

Sherlock Holmes- 9/10
Very very good movie, highly entertaining. Well scripted and beautifully shot this movie is a wonderful and fast paced piece of entertainment. My complaints stem from my Sherlock Holmes fandom so they are to be mostly disregarded. Not a classic but a darn good time.

Pontypool- 10/10
How to describe this movie...HOLY S@#%. Can't tell you much about it cause spoilers but it's a unique horror movie. Most of it is told from the point of view of a morning radio talk show host, very little happens to him but you can hear the experiences and hear what's happening to all these other people and listen to the outside world gone mad. Heavy thinking movie, effectively scary and in my opinion: awesome.

Sherlock Holmes was good, I was a little displeased that he never once said "Elementary my dear Watson." Seriously though, jolly good time. :P

I've been way to lazy to write any reviews. I seriously need to catch up. Couple of good movies: Avatar and Book of Eli. I'll try to get reviews up soon.

I was a little disappointed about that but like I said there were tons of little niggling details that I could be fanboy rageish about, I chose to enjoy the experience as a whole so like you said it ended up being a good movie.

Book of Eli-9/10
Good solid movie, excellent action sequences and strong narrative structure. The characters are interesting and you can think of them as real people. Only complaint is that it wasn't OMG let's talk about this more, but it was a darn good movie and had an interesting message. I would certainly recommend it for an afternoon.

PS: Sorry nekos, I saw the movie today and had time to write it up.

Saw Prince of Persia yesterday with NekoZ.

I'd say it's probably an 8/10.

Story was decent, had a few twists to it (kind of predictable though, ohwait the time-dagger makes it that way), but it kind of had to be that way, or it would be uninteresting.  Music was nothing spectacular, hardly noticeable, but the effects were really good.

The one thing I didn't like was the whole back and forth of the dagger.

WE FOUND IT.
WE LOST IT.
WE GOT IT.
THEY TOOK IT
WE GOT IT.
SNAKE ATE IT, THEY GOT IT.
WE GOT IT.
etc.

Got really dumb after a while, but oh well.  Also, the two protagonists lean in to kiss like 20 times without success.  Very annoying.

But, for a "video game" movie, I must say this is probably the first one that is pretty good and doesn't suck.  It was an enjoyable watch indeed.  Thanks to NekoZ for the ticket in, as well.

Bumping this thread to say that Inception was pretty great. A lot of Matrix flavor, but a fresh spin on the "it's not the real world" concept for sure.



Sums it up, kinda. 9.5/10 movie for me... felt like all the side characters pretty much lacked development and are kind of thrown away at the last minute. I like how they didn't even attempt to explain the technology (unironically speaking... I really think that is a good thing), and went straight for the plot and action instead. More near-future sci-fi needs to do that.

This.

I was somewhat disappointed there was no cool explanation but I liked the fact that it wasn't necessary. The movie just works. I liked it a lot for that as well.

We were supposed to be watching that and ended up seeing Inception instead. Not sure how Despicable Me is, perhaps I'll see it for real sometime?

Indeed! It's like... when you see Star Wars, nobody needs an explanation for how the hyperdrive, blasters, lightsabers, etc. work, right? The technology in Inception SEEMS more realistic, but if someone knew how to do that, it'd exist.

Yeah.  Like, sure we all wondered exactly how only one individual hosted the dream and everyone joins their party and raids someone else's mind but it didn't really matter how it worked. I mean, if there was some stipulation about potentially invading an in-progress dream or something, then yeah I can imagine we'd need to know some sort of inner workings as to how it all worked but there wasn't a need to know, it's just part of that world. I think a lot of movies these days tend to try and explain things that don't need an explanation. It's a fantasy world, we don't need an explanation in terms our world's physics can relate to. It's fantasy, after all.

When I recommended the film to my dad he was like "Oh, the ads made me think it was a horror movie." Later I saw them in the subway station and yeah, that's pretty poor marketing there. They have that horror-movie coloration which really dosn't fit with the movie itself.

Luckily it's spreading fine through word of mouth anyway.

What I also liked about the trailers was the fact that none of the REAL story was given away AT ALL.  Like, we walked in and had no idea what to really expect.

Oh, I never saw any trailers and the only thing I knew about the movie was that it was called Inception and that people had been saying it was good. Fun times. I think my friend knew more about it, but I'm not entirely sure.

Basically, the trailers were like "we can get inside peoples' dreams and we can steal information cause people are vulnerable in their dreams." But basically nothing past the first 20 minutes of the movie was ever revealed in the trailers aside from some of the special effects scenes.  No story though.

We were supposed to be watching that and ended up seeing Inception instead. Not sure how Despicable Me is, perhaps I'll see it for real sometime?

Despicable Me was very very cute and funny, I had a good time with it.

I saw the Inception trailer like... a month and change before the movie came out.  I was watching A-Team around my birthday with friends (which btw, you need to see if you haven't seen, for the simple fact that -Liam Neeson-) and saw the trailer and said, "Wow, that's a lot of hype.  I hope it lives up to it!  I must see!"  And yet, I still haven't seen it, well, this weekend will hope to change this. :desu:

Scott Pilgrim was amazing, go see it. IMO the best things happen at the beginning (if you see it you'll know why I think so, probably), but it's not like the rest doesn't rock face. 10/10 for sure. I thought Inception was the cool movie this season, but this is way more amazing as long as you're okay with goofball.

Yeah I've kind of wanted to go see that movie ever since I read the review for it on Kotaku.  It looked pretty funny in the previews.
