Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Somehow The Prestige has slipped by me, I need to see it. Memento is one of my favorite flicks and The Dark Knight was great too. Yeah Nolan gets it done.

To be fair, I guarantee some people are going to bitch that it's too long and there are a few parts that are a little slow, because basically they need to explain some of the crazy stuff that's happening. But I loved it and my sisters who have completely different tastes in movies than I do also enjoyed it.
I saw it last night and I thought the best way to describe it was the equivalent of my mind having a human body and receiving the best bj ever haha. It was mind blowing (double entendre intended) that's for damn sure.

My friends said it was a mind**** to be sure but I didn't think it was confusing at all to be honest. It just stimulated my mind.

Between Memento, Batman Begins, The Prestige, Dark Knight, and now Inception I'd have to say Batman Begins is my least favorite Nolan movie, and that's saying something because BB is a great flick.

If he keeps that as his "worst" movie I can't wait to see what else he brings to the big screen, haha. I can't wait to see what he does for Batman 3 (one rumor has Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a possibility for the Riddler, which has legs since Nolan obviously likes using actors he's familiar with) and my friend is a HUGE Superman fan who has lost his mind with giddiness now that Nolan will be executive producing that relaunch as well.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Just got back from watching Inception. I must say, it has been a long time since I ever felt I got my money's worth at the theaters...Matrix was probably the last time I throughly enjoyed a movie as I have Inception. A+

Yeah confusing isn't the right word, there's just a lot to digest all at once.

What's even more impressive is that Nolan also wrote this. It's rare that you'll see a director of a big budget blockbuster also pen something this sound and creative... he's still got the pen of an independent film writer and I'm glad the studios are giving him the resources to put stuff like this together.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Inception was awesome, best movie I've seen since The Bourne Ultimatum.

Kind of wish Nolan had written and directed at least one episode of Lost, that would have been fun.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

anyone seen "Big Fan" with Patton Oswalt? He's an obsessed Giants fan who hgets his ass kicked by the giants star player.There was a huge huge flaw in this movie that I can not believe nobody caught it before it was released.He has a poster in his room of the star player and its says" quarterback killer" on it.Then later hes talking to a sports station saying this player had 2 sacks and a fumble recovery.Then later in movie when player gets suspended the newspaper headline says QB suspended and something else is brought up about him being the qb.I dont see how that doesnt get caught by somebody.
Now i was drinking while watching this movie,so maybe Im just messed up,I need confirmation.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I just have seen Salt last night. Holy Shit it was mindblowing. Jolie as an action chick is great. It is a lot like the Bourne series, but with a woman as the lead. Lots of plot twists to keep you wondering who is on who's side. There is more hand to hand fighting going on thatn in the Bourne series. Whoever was Jolie's stunt double earned her pay and then some!!

Nice! I'll have to see it. The Bourne series is one of my faves of all-time. Salt was originally supposed to star Tom Cruise actually.

I heard though, that she performed most of her own stunts actually

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

They shot some of Salt right in my area in downtown Albany so it's been getting a lot of hype here. I've heard mixed reviews, it's basically mission impossible with Jolie. That's why Cruise turned it down, he thought it was too similar to the MI series. I'll wait for it to be on HBO.
