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.
