OK, I head to Amazon to pull the images and links to share on my reviews. Sure, it’s partially because I have an affiliate thing there but that’s not why I do it. It’s convenient, consistent, and takes you right to a slew of other reviews and whatnot. The affiliate thing is there because all the “experts” tell you it’s what you should have. *eyeroll* Whatever. I’m sure that’s what tags and categories are for, too, gods forbid I don’t do something that follows convention and google search requirements. Bleargh.
Anyway, Inception. I was on Amazon to get the image art and the link and perused some of the reviews and I think most people really cannot be such idiots. WB digital copy code issues aside (I rented this I didn’t buy it so I couldn’t care less and I had zero problem on my rental to skip the previews I didn’t want to see)
This movie is NOT hard to follow at all. It’s kind of a simple plot. MY issue with this movie was DiCaprio’s character being so fucking obsessed with his wife. (I won’t plot spoil what happens here). When people on my Facebook saw it in the theater, and comments about it on Blastr came out, people raved it or bitched, pissed, and moaned about how they couldn’t tell what was a dream and what wasn’t, it was so confusing and hard to follow… no… it really wasn’t. Not ever movie has to have crayons and a map does it?
Overall, the concept was interesting and the pace and production made it easy to follow and enjoy visually. I actually would have liked to see this in the theater even at $10. Then again, I like movies like this, that make you have to pay attention to little details to follow the plot. The premise of the main job DiCaprio and his team are hired for in this movie was a bit silly, but the complexity of the process of completing that job makes up for it. Sadly, every time the movie got really good, that damned wife would show up. I understand the point of her being there, but it was unnecessary the way it was done. I get why, and the effect on DiCaprio’s character but zzzzz too much. There were a lot of times I found myself saying GET ON WITH IT!!!! LOL
