S'ok, ZZM to the rescue this time :wink:

'Inception', I've not heard of the film, and it's probably because it's some vulgar high-budget Hollywood 'blockbuster'. Seriously though I don't think I've seen a US blockbuster that's worked for me for quite a long while now. Last attempt was Jonny Depp in some vampire skit, and I had no clue really as to what was going on... great success :lol:
The Johnny Depp vampire "skit" ("Dark Shadows") was a lousy movie take on what had been an interesting "Gothic" soap opera in the 60s.
What a waste.

"Inception,"however, is very intriguing, delving into "dream sharing," consciousness within consciousness, dreams within dreams . . . .

Sir, that fix is right to the point. Cheers to human intellect.
It's quite popular to pick on JR8 at times. He's the retired rich in his 30's and now just spending time collecting rent on his London properties, whingeing about how hard it can be being a landlord while watching stocks rise and fall, sipping margaritas on a hammock waiting for his nitrogen levels to normalize from his last dive so he could dive again sitting in front of his computer posting on the forums about the latest song in his playlist or neat photos he chanced upon the internet if he's not making lobster sandwiches or mango ice cream at home when he's not going around time taking pictures of his Nth country of residence reminiscing about his times in Tokyo and New York comparing how crass Americans are compared to the British, comparing the Singapore legal system with that of the British, wondering why Singapore has the latest quirk such as finer quality hell money, Singapore cabbies driving into pools and aircraft flying over his house emitting sonic booms when it's not national day season type of guy.

Blimey! :o

I know you're taking the mickey, but the only other time I've seen someone do that to me was an internet troll who must have kept index cards of personal information on the 'regulars' on that particular forum. And one day he coughed-up his bio on me gleaned over years.... and it was spooky, almost scary the precision with which he knew the tiniest of details, like he'd been in my home rifling through my drawers or something. My first taste of internet-stalking.

But on the bright side you've got a few things wrong by the way, although in an unintentionally very flattering way :) It's interesting what you've gleaned from what I've written here to the actual me. Oh to be in my 30's :wink: :lol:

p.s. You share with my mother the idea that being self-employed equates to 'not having a job' :lol:

Anyway, after that unexpected and entertaining wee diversion, on to more interesting matters!

I meant that you retired rich while you were in your 30's, not that you're retired rich and still in your 30's. All your stories already imply that you can't be in your 30's unless you worked in Wall Street while you were a teenager.

And what I deduced (and comically exaggerated) was easily done just from things you willingly put on a small section of the publicly accessible internet.

No index cards, no notes, no diagrams...just from memory and done on a whim. And by the way, SMS has a thicker folder of your dossier.

Now imagine a company with the might of powerful algorithms*, data mining techniques and voluntarily given profile information. Hellooooo, facebook.

*Graph theory. Took an online course once; fascinating stuff.

Hey JR8, if you have the time, check out Inception movie. It is pretty deep movie and you cannot doubt the quality of Christopher Nolan's work in his movies.

Eenteresting, and it gets good ratings...

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1375666/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
Score 8.8/10
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/inception/
86%

Thx.

p.s. @Nak. Well as everyone knows SMS is a government agent and those beer-nights are data-gathering exercises. [And to think, the state is paying for his beer, and still he never gets a round in :P!]. Jeez how bad is Nut2's dossier hehe... :lol:

You could start a new topic, where regulars compile 'capsule-bio's' based upon what they think they know about others. Naturally you could jazz-up and enhance certain facets for comedic effect such that the end whole seems plausible still, and you're unsure quite what is truth and what perhaps is fiction.

Sigh. Thanks Nakatago for the deduction. I think the last thing that I wanna be is a plaything to a devil's advocate who has too much money and free time on his hand. So I'm gonna move on with my life. But I shan't tolerate anyone who dares dismiss Inception as vulgar before giving it a try, so do your homework, Mr. JR8.

Already been done. In fact, I've used one of them here off & on over the years....

See if we can identify some of them......

I've already pegged a couple over the years, but kept it to myself, but I'll let you all have the fun!

Ooo-ooh! :lol:

How do you think history will judge it in 30 years time? How do you rate it against say the 30+ year-old Apocalypse Now, or the 50+ year old Our Man in Havana, and The Old Man and the Sea?

I think you can go to watch films on several levels:
- Go just because others invite you
- Go because you've heard recently that it's good
- Go because everyone's talking about it this season.
- Go because from experience, it should be good.
etc

As you grow older ones tolerance for 'just doing things for the sake of it/or going along' tends to thin IME. Same with pursuing the latest trends. The Star Trek Enterprise and 'James T Kirk' used to be on the final frontier of creativity, now where. Let's hope your 'dream-sharing' fares better.

Well I agree with your list of reasons for going to watch a film. Because really, it's a form of entertainment that cater to people's interest. Especially the 'vulgar Hollywood Blockbuster' film, as you put it. And yeah, who gives a damn about trend anyway? Trend fades away in a blink of an eye.

But classic is still classic, regardless of it being less relevant as time goes on, like the original star wars trilogy. And I just think that it isn't fair to make an argument without even the intention of understanding what you are criticizing. Then there is no point because an agreement will never be made.

But anyway, I don't think I need to defend the things that I appreciate. But I think if you would give inception a try as a result of our trivial debate, you'll come to enjoy it even if it's just for the moment. Because it's a good film :wink:
