*****There WILL be SPOILERS***** (Search “End Spoilers”)
Inception: Oh. My. God. Wow. I mean not only is the idea of the movie very original, but you also get the sexy Joseph Gordon-Levitt who has grown up a LOT since I last saw him in “10 things I hate about you”.
Now this annoying kid critic, Jackson, said “Inception” was confusing—yes, it has the potential to be confusing, but I found it easy to understand. By potential, I’m referring to the levels of dreams. The main characters are on a plane asleep while dreaming that they’re asleep in a van while dreaming that they’re asleep in a hotel while dreaming that they’re on a mountain and some are asleep there but dreaming of being in Limbo.
Don’t get what I’m saying? That’s okay—it makes perfect sense when you watch the movie.
Re: Jackson: the adult he was talking to in that video agreed and said even he was confused. Um, I’m 16 and my sister’s 13 yet we both understood the movie. And of course my dad understood it.
When I told my dad this, I added that it reminded me of “Pink Floyd: The Wall”—somebody on IMDB said the transition from present to past and back wasn’t clear. I thought it was.
One thing about the special effects: they were so good, it seemed normal. As in there really was no gravity, or the city really was folding in half.
And Mal. Oh, Mal. She’s such an angry, bitter character—and reminded me so much of Pippa in Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle Trilogy. Both are trapped in an other world—dream for Mal, magical, in a way, for Pippa—and both wish their loved ones would join them, and even try to trick them then grow angry when they refuse.
V for Vendetta: Again, wow. V is a character you should hate, I mean he tortures Evey, but you simply don’t. And even though I knew it was Hugo Weaving’s voice, I couldn’t recognise it. He sounded so different.
Amazing movie. And the main theme is something I cannot stand: injustice. So seeing Sutler die and everyone “win” was very satisfying.
And Valerie’s story was so sad…so beautiful, especially this part:
But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you.
That’s when I started tearing up.
When you wish you could have written a certain piece of dialogue, or wish you could have created that character, or wish you could have put one of your characters in that situation, then you know it’s good.
In my case, I wish I’d written Valerie’s autobiography.
