Its already one of the greatest movies I've seen in my life, don't even try to ruin it. But you never know, it could be good.

kancerkid2639d ago

Could this be any good...?

Quagmire2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

IMO, it will probably play out kinda like Assassin's Creed, what with the whole Animus/Dream Machine thing happening and all.

RedDead2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

I thought it was overrated. It was a good action/comedy etc and it may have been the first film where I like all the characters but it didn't have any particular message or make you think deeply like that reviews were spouting on about. It was suppose to be complex, but it wasn't at all.

Neckbear2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

Honestly, all it had where a very lackluster and uncreative world inside the mind of someone, as well as a shallow ending that attempts to be "deep" and "complex", but ultimately fails at it.

Inb4: "lol u didn't got teh movie", really, it's just people looking deeper into something as simple as bad direction and script. It somewhat pisses me off that this movie is so overrated, it's like Avatar all over again.

Parapraxis2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

Agree with you 100% Neckbear.

It's a movie that make dumb people think they are clever.
I preferred Insomnia and Memento way more than Inception, I felt Nolan did much more psychologically with those films.

Krugsy2638d ago

100% agree with Memento being Nolan's best film, but I dunno why you think Insomnia is better then Inception. I thought Insomnia was his worst film, but its saying much about a director when his worst film is still miles better then alot of movies being made today.

BlackHairyTongue2638d ago (Edited 2638d ago )


In Christopher Nolan's defense, he didn't write the script for Insomnia he just directed it. I also agree Memento was his best but I did love Inception and can't wait for Dark Knight Rises. Hopefully he can help Zack Snyder make Superman: Man of Steel a great flick too.

Oh and the game would be awesome if a good developer picks it up but who knows.

visualb2638d ago (Edited 2638d ago )

if you think its a movie that makes dumb people think they are clever, then whoever you are talking about missed the point

its just a slightly confusing action movie.

thats it.

IMHO, its one of the best ACTION movies i've seen to date...and I loooove movies.

Its not meant to bare any deep emotional meaning, or super deep secret. it has a lot of underlying messages, such as regret, and coming to terms with consequence, but thats all basic stuff

the real meat of inception is a great action flick with solid action, distinct characters, sweet set pieces, quirky humor and an engaging story

above all it IS a cinematic technical achievement. If you don't understand why, study cinema a bit, and read about the making of - its quite revolutionary in that sense.

if you try to make it as if it ever was more than that, you are trying to hard =|

I disagree. The film DID make me think deeply about how dreams work. The problem was the cliffhanger ending and the fact that Nolan missed the bit about dreams being RANDOM. The dream world that he made was to controlled IMO. In my dreams, alligators and tigers come out of nowhere!

Sunny_D2638d ago

In my dreams I get Lions and Tigers and Bears, OH MY!

Comedy? What movie where you watching?

VersusEM2639d ago

First off, the movie wasn't even a comedy, the story was very good, visuals were well done, and characters were likable. Now a movie that was overrated was Avatar, it had great graphics but that was it, the story has been told a million times, it is basically Pocahontas and star wars but not as good as either films.

RedDead2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

It had jokes in it quite alot and tried to make the audiance laugh alot. It was also thriller and suspense to keep you wondering what De caprio's wife was and how she could do what she did. Then it was action/heist. It was a blend of many genre.
Story was good, visuals too and characters good too.

BUT there was supposed to be some hidden philosophy behind it, mainly about dreams and how they work and the ending to suggest he's in a dream. But the fact is that it's just Nolans fiction on dreams, if it makes you think more about dreams, it just shouldn't. It's the same concept as the matrix. People live in a world which isn't real until they notice irregular stuff.

That's all it is though a good, action/suspense/heist movie. Reviewers believe there's somethin in it to get you thinking but again, the dreams are just another Matrix, just another thing to get the plot moving which to be honest is a good idea, but there's nothing special in philosophical way.

So again, a very good movie. But it's overrated because of this thing that makes people think about when it's just another plot device.

visualb2638d ago (Edited 2638d ago )

it isn't a "comedy" but like many good action movies it consists of moments of "comedic relief"

little one liners here and there, some funny situations when appropriate


like when Arthur tells Araidne(?) to kiss him, and she thinks its for a reason, and it turns out he just wanted to kiss her =P little things like that, nothing fancy, but makes you smile

Redempteur2638d ago (Edited 2638d ago )

"action/comedy" ???

where was the comedy in inception ???

did you see the movie ??

edit : so any jokes on the moment and the movies becomes comedy ?? now it's clear that not only you didn't get it ..but you weren't watching it

pr0digyZA2638d ago

lol if you have a joke every now and again it doesn't make it a comedy, even the matrix spat out 2 or 3 joke but nobody calls that a sci-fi/comedy. Agree with
Redempteur I don't think you got it though.

mushroomwig2639d ago

I did like the movie but to be honest..I expected so much more to be happening within the dreams. It wasn't nearly as random as dreams usually are.

TheStorm2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

Apparently you missed a big chunk of the story. Dreams are random, but that is what the Dream Machine is for, it is made to fool people thinking it is the real world. Do people watch movies or just want what they want?

The whole point of the machine and the entire team is to create a real feeling world to relax the subconscious and steal vital info. The dreams are controlled through a science fiction machine. Maybe you should re-watch it.

EDIT: Also read up on Lucid Dreamers who can control their dreams more so. With this the training and a machine, and an architecture Inception makes it clear there is a reason it's not like "What Dreams May Come' or something like that. This film is about stealing info, and tricking a person into what is reality and what is not.

visualb2638d ago

half the people that watch this movie have that same criticism and its annoying.

People expect inception to have crazy avatar-esque dream like worlds, and then they watch the movie, miss the whole premise of the story, and leave complaining "it wasn't crazy enough"

it was never meant to be crazy and random...the point of each and every dream is to emulate reality, to fool the subject into what is a "lucid dream" and to make him think he's awake in reality..

seriously if you want crazy dream stuff watch Dr. Parnesius Circus and stop wishing inception to be what it isn't: some super unique amazing 2nd coming of christ movie. its just a very well done action movie

I think the game will use this to its advantage since it will use realistic scenarios with a twist of dream levels, a bit like AC.

Anderson82639d ago

the dreams were meant to be as real as possible and less random so they could fool the subject into thinking they are still awake

BiggCMan2638d ago

What the hell is that supposed to mean? Are you really a sexist person? Are you implying that females are not as smart as males? Or are you just an asshole? Enlighten me, please.

On topic now. I believe Inception was the greatest movie I've seen in years. Pure brilliance.

Eamon2638d ago

Or maybe he's just kidding.

Because the stereotype for women's taste in films are that or romance or comedy or anything simple enough to understand lol.

It's a sexist joke. But doesn't make him a sexist.

Convas2639d ago

I wait anxiously to see if this will be any good. Please don't mess it up. You guys don't have to follow the movie now, so do it right, expound upon the ideas you laid out in the movie.

Bass_fisherman2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

This game will put you to sleep literally

In my opinion i dont think the movie its very complex but it does make you think deep but im seeing how a game can work in this type of fantasy mixed with reality and probably you will control a character never seen in the movie that goes for the same goal.

VersusEM2639d ago

Hope I don't get trap in limbo

Sitris2638d ago (Edited 2638d ago )

Bubbles cause of your awesome avatar....Tombi, i wish they made a new one, those evil pigs never get old! Or at least make it available online, its hard as to get copies.
