What was your favorite scene from inception?

I was extraordinarily emotionally invested into Inception, I honestly don't get how anyone couldn't be.

Memento 10th Anniversary Blu-Ray by Lionsgate

I don't mean to be rude but I just don't think this re-release is worth the hype. The picture hasn't imporoved that greatly so I think I will just stick with my Sony copy of the film. I remember the Memento bd was one of the first I saw and I thought it barely looked better than dvd.. compared to T...

Favorite Cinematography?

Deakins vs. Pfister the other night, and how neither compares to the cinematography of many of Kubrick's films. :neutral: Don't get me wrong, 2001 was shot beautifully, and I'll give credit where credits due. The effects were marvelous even by todays standards, the editing was brilliant, the script...

u guys stay in shape?

Yeah, I'm currently starting my workout routine again. Last summer I was doing well, but lost it all because balancing it with school is a pain. Right now I'm heavily monitoring my diet, 3-5 servings of protein, not including shakes I down after my workouts, 3-4 servings of veggies, and 2-3 of fruit...

Favorite Cinematography?

Surprised few of you mentioned Hitchcock's or Kubrick's films. Vertigo & Psycho are the best photographed Hitchcock films. While The Shining and 2001 are the best from Kubrick. Malick's films all have gorgeous cinematography as well. (I especially like the look of Days of Heaven - wonderfully captu...

On one hand, I think a wonderfully chaotic version of this film would have been amazing. No explanations, only the audience completley needing to piece together things on his/her own. That said, Inception's complexity (especially in determining whether it's real or not) certainly needed this level ...

I don't understand those complaints. His exposition largely vanishes into the narrative for me, as the exposition itself tends to work on several levels within the narrative or on a character level. I think exposition can be divided up between surface exposition and thematic exposition. In Inceptio...

LOL @ the Chris Nolan jab on that website you linked to George. The top 10 Screenwriting NoNos article. I think it was at least an appropriate jab. But I also consider Nolan's reliance on exposition and his third act pacing to be the two major things he needs to work on as a filmmaker. I don't unde...
