|10:30 pm - I have no appropriate icons for this post|
So, last night I finally got around to seeing Inception. Yes, I know that this makes me about the slowest person ever.
On the other hand, I still haven't seen Avatar, so who knows.
And so, yes, I now see what all the fannish flailing over the past few weeks has been about - well, some of it anyhow. I think I'm more interested in the mindfuckery than the shipping, really.
But it was very interesting in the way that means I'll want to go see it again - not because I wasn't sure what was going on, because I (mostly) got that. I just want to pay attention to stuff I missed the first time round. Or was distracted by people talking in the row behind me. *grumble*
Otherwise - effects were great, especially the dreamscape stuff (and that fun gravity flippery). I liked the entire team, though I wish some had a bit more backstory/character stuff. But I think Saito was my favourite. I have no idea why. And the music is ridiculously catchy.
Also, my one spoilery comment: So, when we get to the end scene, and they end the shot before we can see if the top keeps spinning or not, all I could think was "Christopher Nolan, you utter bastard".
Which is possibly the intended reaction.
Yo, frabjously, I know you are all about Inception fandom at the moment. Recommend me some communities/meta/discussion/fic/whatever. Other people are also welcome to drop in recommendations. Or just talk about the movie.
I also have a strange desire to read an Inception/Cowboy Bebop crossover.
Current Mood: thoughtful
Not sure if I really want to read smut for the fandom 0 at least right now.
But capslock comms are always great for the entertainment factor.
*watches your icon forever*
Well not all of it is smut, and I think I tag most of my PWPs. Nor is all inception kink meme smutty either!
IT MIGHT FALL ONE DAY YOU DON'T KNOW
I am familiar with the ways of kinkmemes.
ARGH! *keeps watching*
Strange but true fact: The stuff I bought in America included a (wooden) spinning top, a pair of coloured dice and a roll of casino chips. what, no chess piece?
I'd also recommend following bookshop
. I don't regularly recommend BNFs (or whatever you want to call em) but they post genuinely interesting stuff.
I don't think you can buy individual pieces. And I do already own a giant pawn, though it's a bit inconvenient to carry around.
Dunno about friending but I might check some of their recent posts.
Tee hee, giant pawn.
-- exact quote from me
Congratulations, you mind is filthier than mine!
Let's all give frowny faces in the general direction of Chris Nolan.
Don't tell me your mind's still up in the gutter. You need to come down where it's dirty.
:( :( :(
Well, I've seen neither, despite my colleagues all gushed about it and wanting me to go and see them. I suspect I'll like them both, but figuring out when it's on which theatre is too much work. :)
I missed Inception for the first month because I was travelling. And then later because I was busy. Or lazy.
No idea why I never saw Avatar.
That was pretty much what went through my head at the end, too, haha.
I was pretty surprised when I found out about all the shipping amongst Inception fans -- I didn't get any vibes like that from the movie at all.
There were a couple of shippy moments, but they were, you know moments. And then I check out the fandom and there are like 50 million fanfics about the epic AU pornventures of Arthur and Eames. (Or, you know, everyone and everyone else).
I don't mind a bit of shipping but - not as the main plot of fic I want to read. As a subplot, maybe.

|(Link)|Well, I haven't seen The Dark Knight, so I guess I win!
I liked the movie but haven't delved into the fandom yet. I really just want genfic but am too lazy to search for it. :P And yesssss about Saito. He doesn't get enough love.
Inception/Cowboy Bebop crossover would be fucking ace.
Yeah, genfic for the win. I've read some shippy stuff, but I'm mostly after gen. And Saito was awesome.
It just struck me that Bebop had a whole lot of stuff about "It's just a dream".
Oh, I haven't seen it yet. It sounds really neat, though :).

Yup, I think you've got it, there!
I have nothing coherent to say about Inception save that I want the DVD *now*, so I can watch it about ten more times.
Well, he succeeded very well at it, anyhow.
Yes, that. Though I might want to go see it at IMAX, too, just to see how shiny it looks on that enormous screen.
