    Watched Inception again. Am now convinced of only one interpretation of the story:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    The story about Fisher is a mirror of the events regarding Cobb. The entire events of the film are part of a dream created by Michael Caine's character, in order to help Cobb therapeutically work through his grief about his wife's death. The spinning top represents Cobb's guilt about Mal's death. By the end of the film he has resolved his grief, allowing him to walk away from the top.

    There are several pieces of supporting evidence for this I feel, but the thing that first got my thinking about this is when the team is discussing how to incept the idea. Eames suggests using the friction between Fisher and his father, to which Cobb responds by saying that positive emotions will always trump negative, that it is cathartic. At the end of the film Cobb accepts his involvement in the death of his wife (whether this is metaphorical, literal or imagined guilt is another debate) and returns home, cleansing him and giving him what he sees as his redemption. And thus the therapy is complete, with Cobb coming to terms about his wife's death and being able to move on.


    Cracking film though.
    Reading this interpretation really makes me want to watch the film again.

    Love Actually is only like Bridget Jones insomuch as it's a rom com with Hugh Grant and Colin Firth, which isn't really saying much.

    Hugh Grant perhaps? all his films seem the same to me :P

    I think I like it so much cos it reminds me of my Film Studies class last year when we were studying the film, those were good times....
    Don't have a tendency to watch too many RomComs so that probably makes the association stronger. They were released around the same time as well. November 2003 (LA) & November 2004 (BJ: EoR).

    Quite liked the Bridget Jones films.

    MJ gets his scissors ready

    Why is it, when you go to the cinema with your other half and there's like an awesome action movie type fare on, and she'll happily see it, but then suddenly she gets all pissy the next time, starts spouting lines such as "You got to pick last time? However, I didn't. It was a mutual agreement. Now we've got to go and see some frothy crap starring Katherine Heigl with her complaining about how **** it was after the movie. Women - I'll never understand them.

    Entrapment - making men feel guilty for things they never done. Blame the man, he's the stupid half. :teehee:

    Still there aren't many girlfriends who will happily watch an action movie and complain over frothy crap instead of praising it. I'd say count yourself lucky.

    You have a hard to please critic on your hands. :teehee:


    Okay Christmas. :moon: The usual stash; films, books, technology. I don't really care for tangible things anymore.

    How about you? Did you get your HDTV and PS3 combo? Been playing much? :teeth:

    Want.


    In other news, I was just looking at the film podcasts I have to catch up on. Some really good ones; hour long interviews with Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin capped off with a three-hour (god knows when I'm going to have time for it) special from the Hollywood Saloon guys. :coma:

    The girl or the film? :pierre:

    Heaven for you. I keep getting Boyle mixed up with Guy Ritchie. Boyle is the one that made 127 hours and is working on 28 Months Later? Might give it a listen too. Whichever podcast this is. :ninja:

    Film. Saoirse isn't all that. :p:

    Boyle is the guy behind Trainspotting, 28 days/weeks later, Slumdog millionaire, Sunshine, The Beach and in this interview he'll be talking about 127 hours. How you can mix them up is sacrilege - it's like confusing Michael Mann with Michael Bay.

    The podcast the interviews are from is called Creative Screenwriting.

    Just checking. :pierre: And I can't help it. Every time he is mentioned, I keep thinking he directed Sherlock Holmes. Reading the Wiki page, there's going to be a Trainspotting sequel? The Beach seems to get a lot of hate. Maybe I'm just hearing a vocal minority opinion but I thought it was a pretty fantastic film. What did you think of it?

    Thanks for the podcast name. Big backlog of other podcasts too. The video in your signature is awesome, think you posted it before, my bad for not watching it then. Hope the person brings out one next year. :teeth:

    He has good reason to. It's like playing a ridiculously high budget blockbuster with a decent story and well developed characters to boot.
