Re: The China-man's trick

Think of it more this way. The magician created an illusion. He wasn't old, wasn't Chinese, and didn't have a bowl between his legs (and didn't use a trap door in the floor). Borden's illusion is created when he is willing to chop off his own fingers. This makes it impossible for Angier to think tha...

Re: A Simple Elegant Solution

The simplest solution is probably the best. Here's an important link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lN8wQJqk_mc Notice his story here: "I don't even know how long she's been gone." (not dead, gone) "It's like I've woken up and she's not here." "Somehow, I just know she's not going to come back." "...

Re: The Truth about Memento (SPOILERS!)

I think Teddy actually is the 2nd attacker Leonard has been looking for and every time he gets close to identifying his John G., Teddy manages to misdirect him and put Leonard on the scent of someone else, usually by manipulating him over the phone. The delicious irony of this theory is that Leonar...

A Simple Elegant Solution

I've been thinking lately. I have previously written that John Gammell lied. Leonard knows his wife. She wasn't diabetic. So, John lied. There's no proof that Leonard's first victim was John G, especially since Teddy is John G. (I'm not saying he was the other rapist, the tattoo could be a huge lie)...

Re: The China-man's trick

It's a magician's secret. I won't expose it. But if someone guesses it correctly, I will PM them.

Re: 'Interstellar' Nolan Fans Member Reviews

First, I am a huge fan of Memento, Inception, and The Prestige. The good: Nolan once again borrows from past films in a delightful way: 2001 Space Odyssey, Armageddon, and Gravity. (Also, Contact.) The space scenes and other planets are done well and the acting by MM and others is very good. The non...

Re: Sammy Jankis's notes

Leonard is not Sammy. But, it is Leonard who took a million notes and got lost. (look at all of his papers back in the hotel) Sammy couldn't even write down "Ellen called".

Re: Little moments in the background that are easy to miss?

I didn't realize before that Eames played with a poker chip while they were planning things in the warehouse.
I meant to add a picture, but I didn't save it.

Re: Little moments in the background that are easy to miss?

I thought that was Eames. He didn't want Saito to feel him up.
