Re: Inception - Blu-Ray Review

Dave - thanks for the usual great review. I had read lots of other reviews which did not favor it so highly. Possibly like many say it needs more than 1 viewing to get the most from it. It's on my short list

I would have written less but I didn't have the time.

Re: Inception - Blu-Ray Review

I bought this as a blind buy on the recommendation of my co-workers. They described it as "Take an 80's flick called 'Dreamscape,' mix it with 'The Matrix', and pump it up on steroids", and that pretty much sums it up for me. In short, I absolutely loved it, and enjoy it more with each screening (I made the mistake of keeping a mental checklist going in the first viewing... detracted from the overall enjoyment for me). Even after several screenings, I still have questions. This is the kind of movie that will be talked about and analyzed for years to come around my house... Thank you for the great review!

P.S. If you like it loud, be careful with the LFE. I became fearful for the pictures on the walls upstairs. So, unless you have some serious "subwoofer-age", watch out!...

Peace... Vader

I haven't seen the blu ray version yet, but I love this movie. It's on my must have list.

Re: Inception - Blu-Ray Review

Great review of a Great film !

Spot on about everything !

Re: Inception - Blu-Ray Review

Watched this the other night and loved it, its definitely a buyer. I didnt find it confusing at all, and it was nice for a film to be clever for a change and make you think. The end made me smile as it ended exactly as I was expecting it to. I didnt want it to finish like that, because obviously you want to know the answers, but it keeps you thinking about it afterwards, which I really expected.

I hope they make a sequel, but a really good one like T2 and Aliens were to the originals.

I second the reco on watching the volume. This disc packs a punch at times.

Re: Inception - Blu-Ray Review

Just rented it. Great review, great movie.

Question:
Cobb's childeren, do they always wear the same clothes, or are they wearing something different in the last scene from what was worn in his memories? The last scene with the children just looked like a continuation from a scene with his memories.

Re: Inception - Blu-Ray Review

They are in the same outfit from the start to the end, one of the factors to help me reach my conclusion at the end.

Res non sententia.

Re: Inception - Blu-Ray Review

ah-ha.
Thank you for the info.
After watching it, my wife wouldn't let me waste anymore of our life by going back to watch anymore of it. She hates movies that make you think. She would be happy for the rest of her life if you put on a big loop:Lethal Weapon, Independence Day, and Die Hard.
