The heavens are opening up and thunder rolls around the planet, but we finally agree on something. I personally wasn't all the impressed with Inception. By the standards of most of what has come out over the past few years it stands pretty tall. But if Peewee's Big Adventure was making its first screen appearance in 2011, it would have the same thing going for it. Not a terrible movie to be sure, but a long way from a great one.

27years, you're not the only one who thinks so. I always found Chris Nolan to be a bit overrated. Nontheless i still kind of like Inception mainly because i fpund it much better as his Batman-films (so my expectations were low and it pleasently suprised me).

By the way, i think you just hit a sore spot with BurnHollywoodBurn, probably the biggest Chris Nolan-fan/defender on this site.

Vits, 1) I still find it unhealthy to nominate a child for "best breasts&butt", there must be a lot of pedofiles on that site.
2) still Spall had two forgotable scenes in that film (if i remember correctly), i believe a suporting actor needs to stands out and not fade in the background. He's not acting, he's cameo-ing.
3) Really, i thought it was the other way around. I atleast saw Never Let Me Go first.(which is such an impresive film.

Hey, I'll admit, I'm a fan. But unlike Vits or MWG with M. Night, I'm willing to admit that not everyone thinks Nolan is the best thing going for movies these days, nor does everything he touches turn to gold. Or it could just be that his work just goes over some people's heads. Although comparing "Inception" to "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure" ... that's comparing apples and newspapers, they aren't compatible at all. One is a sci-fi/fantasy thriller about dreams and one is comedy about a man-child.

1)The fact that she had sexy moments in the movie were mostly meant as jokes.Nevertheless she's a pretty young woman and you don't have to be a pedophile to see it.I'd nominate her.Although I may vote for another actress.I mean she's not that pretty.
2)When I judge performances I judge the main cast and minor cast separately.I'd be happy to judge Spall's performance in the latter because it also felt like a cameo.But he's officially part of the main cast so my hands are tight.
3)Noted.I feel obligated to watch despite your recomendation because the director is the same of ONE HOUR PHOTO(9/10).

Just to clarify...did I do something to you?Or should I just ask what did I do?Every once in a while you accuse me of being obsessed and stubborn like M.W.G.,I say it's not true,you agree you made a mistake,and after a while you say it again.Check most forums and you'll notice all the effort I put on saying what I think without thinking I'm always right.Also,he may be my favorite director but I've never said any of his movies are the best.
 
Keep in mind something:I don't have to agree with your comments about Christopher Nolan nor Michael Bay but I do it anyway.Think about that for a while before replying.

Vits, Don't you find it the slightest bit immoral to nominate a girl of her age (around 11/12 years old) for an Best T&A-award (which is essentially an award for Biggest Lustobject). I find it sick and unhealthy that a site like that does something like that (even if she really has "sexy moments", as you said). Please, tell me that i am not the only one who finds this wrong.

And I don't get what the big fuss is over "Twilight", but there are legions of teenage girls who think it's the single greatest thing to happen in movie history. As for "Inception", I posted a whole article about it in another sub-forum that explains what the big deal about it is.
I don't have a problem with those who don't see the fuss with Twilight. The problem I have is with those who sneer at the people who do like it, like they are some sort of unintelligent subspecies. I also have a problem with the people who hate mostly everybody involved in the movie because they hate it in a pretty much equally obsessive way as some people love it. Anyway...as for Inception..I think fair play to those who do love it. I'm just not one of those people. It fell a bit flat for me and it dragged on a bit...making it far from amazing in my opinion.
saturnwatcher who knew we would find a common ground? Perhaps hell has frozen over a bit too??

When you put in those words...LOL
 
I really must check the rules.Thinking a girl is beautiful and being attracted to her are to different things,so I need to know for which of those 2 concepts the award is for.

As far as I'm considered, "Twilight" is just a fad that will disappear from memory within a year or two after the final movie is released, so there's no reason to be up in arms over the teenaged girls who worship it (mainly because they will eventually grow out of it). This is a lesson I wish Miguel would learn to accept, rather than making "Twilight" the reason for his entire Razzie membership, although he has become less obsessive over it as of late.
 
As for "Inception", I will admit, Nolan's works aren't for everyone. They are more experiments in writing puzzles and mysteries than they are for entertainment value. As a writer, I like that sort of thing. To others, it's boring or nothing to get too excited about, and I understand that. But you'd be surprised how often posters here with opposite tastes as you will agree with your views of a certain movie from time to time. moviewizguy, aka M. Night's biggest fanboy, and I butted heads all the time, but there were one or two movies that shared the same opinions.

I don't remember where but I read grades given to the 10 Oscar nominees based on how they'd survive through time.Olny INCEPTION and TOY STORY got from A- to A+.

Well, sorry for putting you in the same category as MWG when it comes to being stubborn about not all of M. Night's work being perfect. I guess I'm basing it off more on your hoping and wishing that he will be successful again after 4 or 5 movies that were either critical or commerical failures. Very few directors bounce back after that.

Just as it's a thin line between love and hate,it's a thin line between faith and denial.Do you think I'm in denial?

The comparison of Peewee to Inception isn't to imply a similarity, but rather to point out that they at least had a degree of originality going for them, for whatever that is worth. These days, it is worth its weight in gold.

I just think you shouldn't keep your hopes up. If his next movie doesn't do well, his career will be beyond the point of returning to his glory days. If critics and auidences have lost all respect for him, it's only a matter of time before the studio heads do too.
