Just got back from seeing it. Wonderful movie, and one that lives up to the hype, and to the trailer. Sadly, the riddle doesn't really fit in the real world. I would've enjoyed it a bit more if they had explained the machines. The girl being introduced into extraction accepted it pretty quickly, that's my only complaint.
i might go see it tonight. I get free tickets no matter what so anytime's a good time for me.
the sooner the better
[QUOTE=Craptasket;23414533]Thing was [sp] the dream machine on the plane was put up pretty fast don't you think? it was like NOT THERE. Wasn't cob woken up last? didn't he need Fischer to get out? Either it was set to fuck with our heads about the ending or he was still in the dream[/sp] also [sp] didn't it seem strange there was throwoffs, very brief and subtle details that would make you think it plays an importance later in the story. those were placed around the movie I'll explain this in greater detail later, but even if those things meant nothing, the movie made you think[/sp] I'll post my review as well later[/QUOTE] [sp]Cobb wasn't woken up last. He and Saito woke up at the same time. Fischer got out with everybody except Cobb and Saito. The reason they got out later is because Saito died, leaving him in Limbo, so Cobb had to go rescue Saito from Limbo. The Dream Machine is a pretty fast thing, it gets set up in less than a minute every time it is deployed. It probably takes less than that to pack it up. Also, by the time Cobb and Saito woke up, they already packed up the machine. [/sp]

In the guide it says "The final level was Limbo and dreamed by no one, since it's a place of shared consciousness". Is that implying that limbo is a state of one's own mind or an actual world where all human subconsciouses that fall too deep co-exist?[/sp]
[QUOTE=Alex_DeLarge;23432513]Parents went to see it today, called me up and said "that movie was horrible". Needless to say, I raged.[/QUOTE] What? How?! Why?!!! Did they at least tell you what they didn't like about it?
Few plot holes I want to mention as I don't understand them. [sp]When it he is talking to his wife about how they grew old together it shows them as old, however when they decide to "wake" from that dream they are shown as young about to get run over, why would it show them as being young??[/sp] [sp]Also I don't understand the whole limbo thing, that one guy got shot, died and went into the limbo world? So why did he age and Leo not? If it really took that long to find him.[/sp] Movie was good but damnit just too many complications.

Also, the reason why the Asian guy aged so much in limbo and Cobb did not is because the Asian guy died much earlier at the snowy CoD:MW2 looking place, but Cobb didn't die until he was stabbed by Mal in his memory of limbo[/sp]
Just got back from seeing it. Obviously, A[B]MAZING and BRILLIANT [/B], but I was really expecting them to pull some Matrix shit because you know, they were in a dream. I definitely have stuff I wanna discuss, but I think I'll keep it to my own and have fun figuring out stuff.

I love that movie [sp]but the ending was kinda disappointed.[/sp]
Wow, I was expecting a let-down, but I wasn't disappointed. Holy shit, did anyone get reminded of this while watching? [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NWB72My5_c[/media]
Mind blowing
[QUOTE=Devil Traitor;23436317]I love that movie [sp]but the ending was kinda disappointed.[/sp][/QUOTE] Whatever the ending was great.
Haven't seen it yet, just a quick question: Is it worth the extra price for IMAX? Does it actually have IMAX effects or is it like Toy Story 3 (which really didn't have any reason to release in IMAX 3D)?
Amazing movie, really well made. 5/5
Excellent Movie. My mind was blown. It had an excellent story.

Does it actually have IMAX effects or is it like Toy Story 3 (which really didn't have any reason to release in IMAX 3D)?[/QUOTE] Well it's not in IMAX 3D, just IMAX. Even so, it's definitely worth the extra few dollars to see it in IMAX. Watching Inception in a normal theater with an average screen and lousy surround sound doesn't do it justice. Also, while I know I shouldn't, I get angry at my friends who say this movie is horrible because it's too complex and the ending isn't "normal." It's sad that the people I know would rather watch Transformers 2 then Inception... :smithicide:
if going alone or with two, do IMAX
Great movie, but like I pointed out above, few continuity errors and plot holes. [sp]I don't see how Saito was in there for THAT long, maybe a VERY short time is a LONGGG time in there and the few minutes that Cobb was in the 4th level and eventually died Saito grew old, but how could killing themselves in limbo bring him back?[/sp]
[QUOTE=Pacmaney;23435467][sp]Basically, Eams talks about how limbo is near infinite so Cobbs took "years" to find Saito in limbo and when he did he remembered and woke up[/sp][/QUOTE] [sp]I understand how time stands still in limbo, I just don't understand the core concept of what limbo actually is if that makes any sense.[/sp]
[QUOTE=postal;23430533] From that site: [sp] "In the opening moments you get a glimpse of Leo's hand. Specifically, he's wearing his wedding ring. Now, if you follow the rest of the movie keeping an eye out for this you will notice that he only has the ring on when he's in the dream world. At the end of the movie he isn't wearing the ring." If the ring only appears when he's in a dream and he's not wearing at the end of the film, that could be confirmation that in fact, the top does stop spinning after the credits and Cobb is at last in the real world. [/sp] That is awesome. Further proof for me that [sp]it was reality[/sp][/QUOTE] [sp] but he got over mal, so wouldn't getting over Mals death signifies as letting her go, Thus the ring would disappear as she dose in his dreams. His kids look the same, same clothes too, they just turn around, maybe him coming to truth with mals death ect ect enabled him to see his kids faces in his dream but he had to lose a part of him self to do that, and that was mal, so the ring disappeared with mal. I'm torn between reality and dream, as I hope its reality. The ending was definitely left open for debate[/sp]

So i guess that means it has been 2 years and the kids should be older. So who knows[/sp]
the ending was disappointing, has been done a billion times and one would think with the creative energy invested in the rest of the plot that something better could have been thought of. to be honest a screenplay with that kind of ending would have failed miserably in the industry had it not been proposed by nolan
I like how the ending itself was Inception, Nolan planted an idea in our head about what happened, and we're making the rest up. Love it

[QUOTE=Lazor;23437841][sp]the older kids were probably used for the phone call[/sp][/QUOTE] [sp]They were. But if the kids at the end of the film were supposed to be two years older looking than they were in the dreams, then they should've used those kids again. They used the same, younger kids.[/sp]
