Does Inception Glorify Mind-Rape?

So, I read this comment and it sort of got in my head: http://godofwine.livejournal.com/99593.html?thread=933897#t933897 I find it ironic that you're appalled by this fic and it's perpetration of rape culture when the entire movie is about criminals who invade other people's minds and bodies withou...

The Nolan Fans Awesome Scale: Inception

...But what I love most about it that it gives the opportunity for each individual viewer to interpret what’s happening on the screen allowing for different (and sometimes irrational ) theories to arise. Nolan had been working on the script for around a decade, so I have no doubt that everything we...

Top vs. Ring: Theories About the End

I still wish you'd share the dialogue from the movie that indicates, to you, that Dreamshare gives an "abuser/addict" a "hard time using it," but if you feel that information must remain undisclosed, then that's the way you feel. You certainly have every right to your own opinions. All I can do is ...

Top vs. Ring: Theories About the End

TL;DR. Big breath: Its just a movie.. I am not gonna dissect them to the point of being off the wall as you are now. I did rename the word rules to "rules" for your consideration. I'm surprised that anyone writing in 2013 still believes that either "TL;DR" or "it's just a movie" could be effective ...

Top vs. Ring: Theories About the End

NOTE: some comments about the movie Prometheus follow that might give away a plot point (a minor one, so I'm not tagging it). A dream using Dreamshare is not like any other normal dream. Sure. But you're making a very specific claim about the way that Dreamshare is different, a specific claim about ...

Top vs. Ring: Theories About the End

Ok. I'm so sorry for using the wrong words. The "rules" would have been much better. But...you still don't understand what I am saying right? I will hope your literal obsession is worn off in the coming posts. And did I claim that you said Ariadne didnt need training? Sorry. I only asked because; i...

You want to be fooled. Who??

On a meta level he speaks to the audience who watches the film. Well, that is a slap to the face of audience. Just replying to this part of your post (which is given in full above). Nolan's famous for playing with the conventions of narrative. To observe that humans want their stories to go a certa...

Top vs. Ring: Theories About the End

No, my "highlighted parts"* is "obviously" your claim about "the rules of dreamshare." What is your support, from either movie dialogue or published remarks by Nolan, for your claims about these "rules"? What statement? You are claiming here that I said "Ariadne would not really need any training a...

Top vs. Ring: Theories About the End

What's your support, from either movie dialogue or Nolan's statements, for the bolded claims about the "rules of Dreamshare"? Your highlighted parts is obviously about Cobb's guilt projecting his troubles from the past (Mal, Limbo Freightrain, Memories, Faceless Kids) ( how the hell could you miss ...

Top vs. Ring: Theories About the End

That seems like hand-waving the issue--unless there's evidence in the movie to the effect that 'the way Dreamshare works is that it keeps people from seeing their children's faces. ' ??? Dreamshare obviously gave Cobb flashbacks of guilt right? And he said at the same time it was the only way he CO...
