I'm glad I am not the only one who thought Dark City was amazing.Still, there is a different between thoughtful criticism and what the douche-clown in BigD's link wrote.

NO SPOILERS, PROMISEI saw Inception last night. I like to go into movies completely cold - the less I know about them the better. In this case I knew it was directed by Nolan and starred Leo, that's it. I suspected I was going to love the movie once we got about 5 minutes in, because it was explaining itself wonderfully without narration or explicit exposition. By the end, I was still smiling ear to ear; even though I knew how it was going to end, I loved watching it happen. I really think this was one of the best movies I've ever seen. Visually it was outstanding. Logically it was fantastic (one smallish quibble about the van but otherwise it all makes great sense from multiple perspectives). Pacing was perfect - 2.5 hrs went by in about 20 minutes as far as I was concerned (and that's TOTALLY a metaphor for the movie imo). And the acting was strong across the board (the weakest performance was still better than the strongest in many movies). It all came together so well that I was delighted. I was laughing in delight as the credits rolled and applauded for the first time in years at the movies. I was delighted in a way that I can really only remember having been after some Pixar movies. This is not a simple movie, but it's not overly confusing either. It just doesn't shy away from presenting you with a detailed and complex storyline, a complicated world that you need to think about and pay attention to in order to understand. And the more you put into understanding it, the more you get out.Just a great, great movie.
there were no special effects, no special effects.

Overrated. Didn't draw me in emotionally. Did not care about any character, which is a yuuuuge drawback. Could not have been more indifferent as to how it was going to end. Definitely interesting, however.

I keep thinking about Joseph Gordon-Levitt flying around in the hotel level, tying everyone up, fighting projections, rigging the elevator, etc., and it makes me shake my head in disbelief at how unbelievably fucking awesome the last half of this movie was. Y like Senor JLL, even in parts where I knew what I was about to see, I was still motherfucking THRILLED to watch it actually unfold on screen. I can't wait to see this again.

That scene and two others were literally jaw dropping to me. They at the time appeared to be one shot, and I thought it was the most spectacular thing I'd ever seen in movie making. Then I did some research, and they just appear to be one shot/no cut. They actually were several different shots, but edited digitally to look like a continuous shot, which I think is almost cooler. The effect is just magnificent.

neat review of Inception, with spoilers: http://www.theawl.co...t-making-moviesI think it may go a bit far at times but the premise is interesting. It certainly explains why Leo looks so much like Nolan in this film. I definitely agree that Inception is one of the most self-referential movies I've seen.
there were no special effects, no special effects.

I'm having a very minor procedure done on Wednesday morning, and I'm staying at my parents' place that night. I've convinced my dad that it'll be a good idea for us to go see Inception that night while I'm in my post-surgical vicoden-induced haze. I'm pretty excited about it.

I've never had vicoden...will you be able to follow the movie?

Not sure if I commented on this yet or not (don't think so, since I just saw it on Saturday night). I really liked the movie. I don't remember who said it, but it made me think of Dark City a lot as well, and I really liked that movie.I thought they did a fantastic job of making the unbelievable, believable.
