I gave it an eight the last time I saw it. I assure you i'll give it a sober assessment. ;)

What did you rate Inception last time?

Oh, and tomorrow I'll be watching The Social Network for yet another judgement. ;)

Last time was in the mid to high sevens I think. This is the highest i've rated it yet (though I probably should have mentioned that I smoked a joint beforehand :lol: ).

Wow. That's just... insanely low.

Moving on.

"The Island"...

7,5/10.

I liked the sequences inside the complex...It reminded me Aldous Huxley's "Brave new world".
It's always a pleasure to see Steve Buscemi in a movie and Ewan Mc Gregor was good to. Scarlet Johansson is...well...let's say that her part in The Prestige was far more intellectual than her part in "The Island" :mrgreen:
The chase scene with the truck carrying train wheels was funny but the flying motorcycle was ridiculous.
Michael Bay is not a bad director, IMO, but there's always something wrong with his movies. I think it's because of him, of who he is, and how he approaches the cinema. He's talented sometimes but he will never be Ridley Scott, Tony Scott or Christopher Nolan.

I think we just have different ways of rating films. A 7 to 8 for me is like a 9 to 10 for you, by my estimation.


How I rank: With [imo]examples[/imo] or synopsis.
10 - Immaculate (2001, etc.)
9 - Absolute love (Only ever gave this to American Beauty, but it needs a re-watch)
8 - Above and beyond normal films (Inception, The Shining, Planet of the Apes)
7 - Great! (Jaws, Clerks, old Dawn of the Dead)
6 - Good (This is where most films I see go. A standard movie)
5 - Forgettable (Don't remember)

Is yours any different? Or do we just not see eye-to-eye on Inception?

Le Scaphandre et Le Papillon
(The Diving Bell And The Butterlfy)

I once wrote a screenplay for a short film. Months later, I discovered that there was a French movie with the same kind of story. I liked this movie very much and fortunately, my storie is different enough to produce it.
David emerges from the store slowly. He braces himself against a parked car and then keeps on walking in a nightmarish daze.

WE PULL BACK as David blends in with dozens and dozens of ordinary people, walking on an ordinary street, in an ordinary city.
