the movie Inception....

Does anyone here actually understand the exact plot and logic of the movie?

I personally still don't get some parts of it.... such as wtf happened that cause Mal to think the real world was not real (how he locked the totem in a safe or something).... and how the son of that tycoon helped them break into his own subconscious....

Have not seen it. Is it worth my time to invest in it?

actually never saw "Good will Hunting" until today.. very solid.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119217/

RIP Robin Williams, great performance. :/

Great movie.

yea. Wish I would have seen it sooner. Matt Damon is such a beast, really great actor IMHO. "Rounders" is still my favorite performance of his.

My son started saying "how bout dem apples" the other day and I've got no idea where he got from and he certainly hasn't seen this.

haha! I've heard it in a bunch of other movies but not sure where a young kid would pick it up.

yea Inception is solid.. you have to pay attention though, it's a very weird plot.. but I think if you watch it "again", it gets better.. kind of like Deja Vu.

plus, it has Leo in it. :D cast is great overall.. and it's one of Zimmer's best soundtracks IMHO.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1375666/

8.8 on IMDB ... that's really high. :o

"Time" is amazing IMHO.. so simple but perfect.

masterpiece soundtrack.  :wowthatwasnutswtf:



I've been wanting to watch it recently .. so can't answer fast's question, as it's not fresh in my head.

Yeah definitely.... awesome visuals. Chris Nolan delivers as always!

speaking of great sound tracks....

kill bill 2 was great.... 1:31 is probably one of the most inspiring/beautiful instrumentals of all time.

Alright will watch. Now it goes on my list including but not limited to:

- Dark Knight Rises
- American Sniper
- The Hateful Eight
- Bone Tomahawk
- Sicaro
- actually pretty much any movie that has a dramatic streak to it.

^^ Sicario is really good.



Just watched Dark Knight Rises trailer to refresh my memory, oh the one with Bane.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1345836/videoplayer/vi2376312089?ref_=tt_ov_vi

dope trailer. My favorite batman movie is "The Dark Knight" with Heath Ledger (RIP).

Bale was an epic batman. He brought it into a "darker" more intense world, which I prefer in comic book/superhero movies.

Agreed on the darker superhero movies. It's how I remember the comics from my youth too.

Going to watch the remainder of Ghost in a Shell....

Man there are no good movies coming out as time goes on, all the good ideas are being taken and/or people ain't creative enough nowadays.....

only reason I might watch Dunkirk is bc of Chris nolan directing..... cause i'm so fkn sick of WW2 movies

sometimes I wonder if not being excited about movies coming out, are a results of me just "getting older".. but I really don't think so. The sheer number of shitty remakes of originals that everyone once enjoyed, proves Hollywood is a wreck. I mean, look at "Chips" recently. I didn't see it, nor do I want to. But they turned some old classic into some goofy joke of a movie, it looks like. They definitely need to chill with the butchered remakes, that's all I know.

The "Point Break" remake is such an awful tragedy.

I just search 2017 movies, omg Baywatch remake, Power Rangers remake, so many trash remakes.

https://www.google.com/search?q=2017+movies&oq=2017+movies&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.1062j0j9&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

That is a really shitty lineup.. wtf?

Most original movie in there is probably "Get Out". Heard that was good.

I guess every time a good movie comes out, the bar is set higher too. But than again technology and tools are better as well....

originality is tough. 'get out' was okay....

ya the remakes, just by watching the preview u can tell if it's good or not......

like the 2017 "mummy" i knew there was 0 chance it was good by watching the commercial..... i mean how could it possibly be unpredictable or original???
