THANK YOU NOLAN. For god's sake, I'm tired of 3D. I'm getting screwed over since my eyes can't see the 3D effect (the optometrist told me this) and having to wear an extra pair of glasses on theaters is the worst thing ever.

I don't understand these THANK YOU NOLAN YOU TWO-DEE SAVIOR YOU posts. I've yet to see a 3D movie that was released exclusively in 3D, what's stopping you from watching them in a 2D screen?

I bet Chris will dabble in the 3Dness one day, he's reasoning for not shooting TDKR in 3D has nothing to do with trying to paint himself as a 2D crusader.

Makes sense to keep TDK in the title. TDK night did a lot more business than BB so they want the audience to know that it's a sequel to TDK.

Nolan should learn how to properly shoot action before stepping into 3D.

The Snow Fortress action from Inception in 3D?

Crystal Skull is shitty enough to be a huge blemish on Spielberg's record.

either way, the only truly great film Spielberg has made in the last 10 years was Munich (possibly sans Catch Me If You Can, which I still haven't seen yet).

I love action scenes where all the characters are wearing the same clothing. The best part is when you don't know who the fuck is shooting who. That pretty much sums up the Snow action scenes in Inception.

The action in Inception is 90% Hans Zimmers Score, and 10% whatever the hell Nolan is trying to do on screen.

The Departed was entertaining, but yeah Scorcese's last few films can go to hell.

Spielberg's last great film was in 2001 (?) with Minority Report

James Cameron.....I don't want to talk about him right now :lol. So you got a point. But come on brah, you can't say Nolan is as accomplished as any of these in his filmmaking. Even Cameron is above him at the moment in terms of direction. He had some bright spots with some scenes in Inception though. But yeah he's another director who should start being kept away from his scripts.

As for 3D. That's one thing I'm happy with Nolan for. I'm glad he isn't backing this bullshit. And face it guys. Scorcese won't be filming Silence in 3D lol. It's still a gimmicky format and he's only applying it because his latest is a kid's film.

Screw that. Both Minority Report and AI are better than Nolan's entire filmography. (well actually I'd rank Prestige slightly higher than Minority Report)

Minority Report is similar to Inception in that both have "Were They/Weren't They" sort of endings. Difference is that unlike Inception, Minority Report is a movie with different outcomes that you can personally choose to believe, where both logically make sense based on whats presented in the movie.

Minority Report does not have that kind of ending. The idea of it all being in his head is just a theory thrown out by people who understandably want to rationalize the film's shitty ending. Nothing about the way Minority Report ends suggests the same kind of ambiguity that Inception's does.

I didn't think inception's ending was ambiguous. he was happy and really, thats all that mattered

Its up to personal choice. Opinion is based on what the film presents. Youre simply to choosing to ignore it.

Inception only presents an illusion of ambiguity. There isn't any other logical outcome than the most obvious one.

You know, while it's true that the first two movies were a pretty realistic take on Batman (as realistic as Batman can be anyway), I always assumed that eventually they would have to bring some of the freaks into the series. They would just need to ease them in slowly.

I liked Minority Report's ending. It wasn't sappy, it wasn't even cheery, but it was just a 'moving forward' ending. I also liked that Agatha got out.

Minority Report is also better science fiction than Inception imo. Especially since Inception doesn't really care to explain the actual science behind its ideas, but rather only talks about the ideas themselves.

Minority Report is just a much smarter movie imo. Yes, this was also part of the conversation I had the other night.

And how are you not doing the same with Inception?

With Inception's ending, you can believe he made it out or believe he didn't. The fact that we don't see the top fall allows either choice to be made, and the film won't contradict whatever choice you make.

Minority Report's ending is definitive. There's nothing in it to suggest otherwise, it's just a fan theory that people *want* to be the true ending.

Absolutely no way this was happening with this movie. This will be about Batman finally accepting that there's no moving on, seeing the return to the Batcave in the new mansion, and basically becoming a hero on a never-ending mission.

The Dark Knight Returns is sorta about that. I think it could happen in movie-form, without Bale or anyone attached to the trilogy, and soonish as well.
