pretty excited about this — first post-rona film i’ll be seeing in the theater.
this man lives in a post-rona world yawl
also looking forward to this
My friend who thinks FF7 is a religious experience is bitching about how the plot will be "stupid" and too hard to follow. That's probably going to be the popular sentiment among moviegoers who can only tolerate Transformers-level simplicity.
I think Nolan playing with complex time concepts (Memento, Interstellar, Inception) is the best Nolan, so I'm on board.
Surprised he didn't name it Inversion?
When has a Nolan film ever been hard to follow? The dialog is usually 99.5% exposition—if you get lost just turn on the subtitles
ngl I've never been a fan of time travel shit in movies for a variety of reasons (most people do it poorly, my ocd side nags me about any plot flaws introduced, sometimes it's hard to follow, etc.)
but i'm not so opposed that it's ever a deal breaker in itself (like i liked original terminator despite time travel not because of it), and as you say nolan has more than proved himself, and memento/inception are notable exceptions in that i actually enjoyed the device because he's so good at it.
Have u ever watched primer u should watch primer primer is the best time travel movie
i have not but i shall add it to my 2-watch list.
it doesn't have a bunch of dream sequences does it? dream sequences are probably my least favorite plot device of all and combo time-travel/dream-sequence shit sounds awful
I just rewatched Primer a week or two ago
It keeps repeating itself
is that the one with bill murry in it
no that was ghostbusters. you're thinking of the one where he wears a red hat.
Counterpoint: Back to the Future is the best movie ever.
I recall that being amazingly complex. Not for the feint of heart.
Someone really ought to reshoot Primer. There’s a scene missing that makes the whole thing a lot more difficult to follow on first pass because the footage got damaged and they were already too overbudget to reshoot or something like that. Definitely pretty clear it’s a first attempt for the writer/director/lead.
It’s a pretty impressive first attempt, though, and still worth watching for sure
primer is one of my favs and a cult classic — i love showing people the movie for the first time and watching their reaction.
his other film upstream color is also good (and a lot more accessible and a easier watch). shame he hasn’t done more projects — definitely has a unique voice.
I like chris Nolan but inception’s plot is fairly silly imo, hope this one is good
Yeah primer is one of my fav movies and upstream color is v cool and up there too.
I barely made it 10 minutes into inception, just seemed like a bunch of malarkey. should I try again?
