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.

Re: The China-man's trick

Its a work of fiction, I didn't even know there was a real Chinese magician. The trick in the film actually proved to be a hint at Borden's secret and thus was essential to the plot of the film. Fiction based on reality. The one magician really did pretend to be Chinese all of the time, until he go...

I miss these kind of discussions. This is one of my favorite things in the Prestige.

Re: Cobb's Totem?

Do you remember the ending of Inception, and how frustrated you were, probably, at the ending? You know, that stupid top? Well, I'd like you to forget about that stupid top. Why, you may ask? Well, that's not Cobb's totem. He himself says it isn't his. It was his wife's, remember? Alright, back to ...

Re: Saito's Confirmation of Job Accomplished

My question is, 'Since Fischer was doubly drugged and would still remain asleep, wouldn't Saito and Cobb actually land in Fischer's dream before waking up? No. No one was drugged more than anyone else. The last kick, kicked errrbody except Cobb and Saito to level one i.e. Yusuf's dream where they w...

Re: Did the Tesla's Machine actually work? [SPOILERS AHEAD]

This is a film version of a book. In the book there are slight differences but the machine works. I like your idea that Root would be there, but you are simply reading into the film. The trick is that at one point, Angier believes that Bordon had played a trick, which was to have Tesla pretend to bu...
