I was underwhelmed by Inception too. Possibly I'd just heard too many good things about it and went in overhyped. I think I was expecting something as mind-blowing as I found Memento (by the same writer/director) and it didn't quite make it. Plus there were a number of plot holes and things that kinda bugged me. I loved the concept in Inception, but... I don't know, it just didn't live up to expectations for me. It certainly did for most people I know though, so there must be something in it!SheWolf wrote:Another rave review for Inception I see.
And no, it wasn't the bent legs bit in Black Swan that mad me laugh - that got a gasp! (I think he took that scene a bit too far! LOL!) - there were several different places, though some were really giggles of nervous surprise I suppose - like when she was touching herself in bed and turned to see her mother there, but then properly when Lily said 'OMG you DID have a lezzy fantasy about me... *pause* ...Was I good?! .
And mostly it was the type of horror that I like most - good old fashioned scares not blood and guts. You know, the 'don't open the door... DON'T open the door!', tense kind of horror, rather than slasher gore stuff. There were some slightly grisly parts in this too (the fingernails - eep!) but I kind of like squeamish - as long as it stops there. So for me Black Swan had everything: drama, comedy, and horror! Plus it really made great use of the visual medium to tell the story - so many films have great stories but you may as well have been reading them. Mind you, I guess the psychological aspects really lent themselves to it.
OK I'll stop gushing now. Hopefully I'll still like it as much on second viewing!
