Oh this is easy!
In other news, I am obsessed with American Horror Story. If they make a land comm for that, it'll be my fourth. AND THEN THAT'S IT DAMMIT.
And you really should join me. It's not by elimination, it's by points. Each challenge earns you points, see. It looks to be fun, I like having stuff thrown at me and someone to go "Here. Do something with this".
So, yeah. I'm excited for period_rumble! And the theme! Heroes, myths & legends! After months and months playing Dragon Age, you know I'm in love with this already. Speaking of which, I really need to finish that game
Who's Team Holmes? I'm Team Holmes. Who's Team Holmes' Mod? You know this, I don't need to spell it out for you, do I?
All adaptations are included, we're a loving bunch.
startrekland! Ask for Team Engineering, we're the most awesome. ;) (And furthermore, I'm one of the mods. We're both awesome, you just know the half of it.)
What? If you're putting out crap for the masses thinking the masses are stupid enough to buy into it every time, you don't deserve my money. That's my policy and I'm sticking to it.
Anyway. Back to inception. It's pretty good. Like, surprisingly good considering - again - the crap that's been coming out lately. It feels like it's Christopher Nolan's, and it reminded me (and my boyfriend, apparently) of the Matrix in certain ways but as though it took the opposite approach to the story. Because as you probably know, in the Matrix, you get much more information about the technology than you do the character(s) and what drives him/them - I daresay it's poor in that aspect, even. I'm not one to put the whole blame on Keanu Reeves' acting regarding how friggin' two-dimensional Neo was. They didn't really give him much to work with either.
But as I was saying, while in the Matrix you got much more about the universe it was set in, and the technology that made the entire story possible than you got about the characters, in Inception it's the opposite. You go in knowing that technology is there, that people can enter other people's dreams, and extract their thoughts, ideas, important secrets (which I found fabulous, by the way), but they don't even explain most of it to you, and what drives the story is this one character's desire for something extremely important to him directly. What's good about it is you only care about where that tech and knowledge came from for about 5 seconds. Beyond that, you're too involved with what's happening to stop your immersion to ask "But wait! What about [...]?"
And it's inherently a cool movie. Really cool. I love that beyond the main character you don't really get to know much - or anything - about the rest of the characters' story, but you get their personalities and you get they're different. Especially the blonde guy with the lovely accent (Eames, played by Tom Hardy) and Arthur (who's played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt), probably because they were antagonizing each other the whole movie through.
Even Ellen Page, who tends to annoy the living hell out of me, really didn't. Then again she hadn't in Whip It either, maybe she's changed something about her acting that I like more now.
Anyway, so, the movie is good, the story is compelling, and the universe, for all the things you don't get explained about it, is very well laid out for anyone to understand. And it sticks with you, because it influenced my own dreams last night. I didn't dream about the movie, I dreamt about my grandparents' home town, which is small and disgusting and boring, but this time it had some awesome new things going on, and places, and Fran Kranz was there working in my dad's bookstore, and I remember saying at one point "You know, I kind of wish this was real" and my boyfriend answered "Whoooa there!" and I had to explain to my subconscious projection of my boyfriend that I wouldn't do what one of the characters in the movie did that screwed her up good.
Yeah. For the record, I pretty much always figure out I'm dreaming these days, which can be good or bad, depending. I just never have my boyfriend there to freak out thinking I'm going to get sucked into my own world creation never to come out again. It's too damn easy, but I don't have the drugs possible to get me sleeping that long.
In short, here's how my boyfriend and I described the movie to each other (it's funny how after six years we're still thinking the same exact thing as the other and completing each other's sentences): Yo dawg, I heard you liked dreaming, so I put a dream within your dream, so you can dream while you dream!
Short Story!Di is out. I have tons to do and a friend who's recovering from a gastric bypass surgery to go see.
I don't know if any of you are fond of Clerks II, but I love it. So last night, I decided to make some quotes icons. They're not many, and I may have forgotten some really cool quotes, but I'm only human and I don't even own the movie, sadly.
Credit if taking, please.
