Tuesday, February 15, 2011 No Comments

My Pick: Inception – Guy Hendrix Dyas (Production Design); Larry Dias and Doug Mowat (Set Decoration) Art direction is another interesting category where I happened to see every nominee this year, and it’s always interesting what films make the cut to nomination each year. In this installation, we are presented with Alice in Wonderland, Harry […]

Road to the Oscars: Writing (Original Screenplay)

My Pick: Christopher Nolan, Inception I only missed Another Year out of these nominees (Inception, The Kids Are All Right, The King’s Speech, The Fighter), though I can’t see very much surpassing Nolan’s magnum opus of 2010 anyways. Who could have imagined that Nolan’s fast-paced, suspenseful, and evocative trip through human dreams could have possibly […]

Recently the powers that be released a list of the nominations for the upcoming 2011 Golden Globes Awards, and I took some time to skim through it. I don’t want to go through all of the categories right now, but I’d like to quickly talk about one of them. I’d like to start off by […]

Watching Inception is like visiting Times Square. The first time you go there you are awed by the grandeur, by the lights, and by the immense, remarkable buildings. At the same time, the people in Times Square trying to sell you comedy show tickets are rather irritating. Now, the more you frequent Times Square, the […]

Inception follows a group of dream infiltrators as they attempt to pull of their biggest job ever. Accustomed to extracting information from their victims’ minds, they’re charged with the task of planting an idea in the head of the heir to a massive corporate empire. The concept itself is so cranial that you could get […]

I came into Inception without the slightest bit of previous knowledge and, to be honest, I haven’t seen a film with this kind of impact since The Matrix. Director Christopher Nolan takes his script further than most do, and that’s easily seen while delving through his action-packed view of human dreams. If there was a […]

Christopher Nolan’s skill in doling out suspense is ever so prevalent in his latest, existential film, Inception. The story follows a group of people who infiltrate peoples’ dreams to steal their deepest thoughts. Now, the movie doesn’t really set the boundaries as to what can and can’t be done in someone else’s dream, leaving them […]
