10 points on the ending of Interstellar (movie review)

I gotta be honest with ya; Interstellar had some cool ideas and I LOVE Christopher Nolan movies, but this movie didn’t work for me.  I like that the Nolans trust me enough to appreciate the difference between a worm hole and black hole, but wow, they sure did f@ck up the ending.  Here are 10(ish) points on the ending of Interstellar and why is ruined the movie.  Read the rest of this entry

The Dark Knight (movie review)

The question isn’t really regarding the quality of The Dark Knight but instead, by examining its parts, deciding on its place in history. Is it the best action movie ever? Let’s dig in to the most bountiful Batman movie we’re ever likely to get. Read the rest of this entry

5 points on Batman Begins (movie review)

After the disaster that is known as Batman and Robin, it seemed like it was time to let the Batman movie franchise die… at least for a while. Then suddenly, Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan brought us Batman Begins, and nothing would ever be the same.

The Dark Knight Rises movie review

My Score: 90%

The Christopher Nolan & Christian Bale Batman movie series comes to an end with The Dark Knight Rises, and they decided to go out with a bang.  Literally.  Stuff blows up in this movie.  A lot.  At some point, I half expected the stuff that Batman punches to explode.  Still, this movie isn’t just an action flick: it’s an adventure, a mystery, a drama and an inspirational sports movie all rolled up into one, and none of it disappoints as everything from the first two movies ties together nicely and the end satisfies the audience in an anti Inception way.

Memento review

stars-four-halfA QUICK Review!  I found a bunch of old movie reviews that I never got around to publishing – they’re old, they’re short, but they get the job done!  Memento was the first Christopher Nolan movie I saw, and I’ve been hooked on the guy ever since.

Memento from 2000:

Guy Pearce is Lenard (my favorite of his performances) and is now disabled since his ‘accident’ – he can’t create any new memories. Who’s playing on his disadvantage? Pretty much everybody.  Matrix costars Carrie-Anne Moss(as Natalie) and Joe Pantoliano (as Teddy Gammell) are great supporting actors, and Christopher Nolan’s directing and screenplay are outstanding.  If you haven’t seen much in the way of film noir, Memento is a good starting point.

Inception: pick a side

Inception-movie-posterIf you haven’t seen Inception, this post isn’t going to make much sense to you.

I enjoyed the latest jam from Christopher Nolan; this movie reminded me quite a bit of Memento, but was still totally unique.  But let’s get it on:

What do you think happened at the end of Inception?  There are two schools of thought:

  • Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character, Dom Cobb, is able to return to his children/the totem top falls
  • Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character, Dom Cobb, is trapped in the dream/the totem top continues to spin

Folks who go with option 1 believe that the top is wobbling right before the movie cuts to black.  I don’t agree; I voted that he’s trapped because his children are wearing the same clothes they wear in his dream, it seems to be the same time of day (same amount of sun) and they don’t appear to have aged.

I’ve done a brief survey of the few people I know who’ve seen the movie, and choosing between these two options seems to run on gender lines.  Women choose option 1 and men choose option 2.  Fascinating.  I also found that this happened when I asked people what they thought happened after the fade to black at the end of Cast Away:  women always responded that he got in his car and kept driving while men said he went back to the lady’s house who he’d left the note and package for.

In any case, it’s a good flick – check it out.  Drop a comment here if you can; i’m going to dry to add a poll feature, but not sure how it works – if its here and functioning, vote on it!
