Please see my icon: Reality is a nice place, but I wouldn't want to live there. So I watched Inception. Twice.
It's bloody insane how a movie that is actually an action flick can fascinate such a huge amount of people.
So this is my Inception post. If you haven't watched the movie: GO DO SO! And then come back. ;)
Actually I wanted to watch Inception in the theaters but it was released here (Germany) in summer so nobody couldn't be bothered to join me. I got it as a Christmas present - the normal DVD. But Jesus that's the first movie I truly want to watch in 3D (I usually hate 3D) or at least on Blue Ray. Well but no such thing... Anyways...
The movie is definitely an action flick (a pretty brutal one I might say because what they do with the projections is not nice. And killing each other.) and has very little character development (a part from Drom obsly). BUT Nolan planted a fucking huge idea in my head. So simply saying I'm intrigued would be an underestimation. The idea of the movie is simply insane and how it's introduced to us through Dom's previous failures and Ariadne's learning process are fabulous ideas.
Plus everything is very illegal and secret. Hell, they actually steal thoughts in very elegant way! (Brilliant!)
So I loved watching it (both in English and in German). ( onto more rambling about characters and ships )
This fandom owns my soul! Usually I don't get into a fandom based on a movie because it's mostly short lived (the movie itself and the fandom) and most movies do not capture my attention so thoroughly. But Inception does! I even wrote fic. A story in English even! So I'm in need of a beta reader for a under 2k gen fic. (It's Eames centered. Yeah.)
