Talera vs Inception

Posted 20th September 2011 at 12:56 PM by Talera

Dreams. Fluid, intangible. Somehow even the most unrealistic concept can seem to be real and possible. Trying to grab hold of it and feeling it slip through your fingers.

Sometimes the dream is so real that when you wake you have to consider whether it actually happened. The vividness causing deja vu as a temporary state.

Everyone has considered certain things in their life. Is it possible for someone to read your mind? Is it possible for someone to enter your dreams?
When this movie first came out, I saw the trailer and knew I would love it. I could not go to see it at the cinema and wanted to wait until I had the house alone to enjoy it in full. I stayed away from reviews, told my friends not to speak of it to me and so on, just so I could experience it fresh and not go in with the bias of other's opinions. I also tend to be able to predict twists and I wanted this movie to be unpredictable for me, in the same way dreams often are.

This movie was everything I wanted it to be and more. The artistic direction managed to provide such movement within that it was as fluid as one conceives dreams to be. The notion someone can construct worlds for you and control the progress of a dream was effective in that the same concept revealed it could not control the dreamer. While your setting may be falsified, your actions are still your own. Your mind is their dominion, but you cannot be ruled.

The introduction of latent meanings, hiding items from our subconscious in places such as a safe is also fantastic. So often we believe a dream was trying to tell us something, but we just cannot bring the thoughts to mind. It is as if it is locked away and only the right combination can unlock the information.

For such a long time I have been waiting for another movie to give me a twist I could not predict within the first 30 minnutes. This movie did that for me. While I picked the twist before it was revealed, it certainly was not the twist I had envisaged for the first half of the movie. I'd like to say what I thought it was going to be, but that would be spoiling it for people.

No matter how many times I have tried to describe this movie in this entry, I cannot find the words to capture it and give you an image to take with you. I think this is truly one of those movies where everyone will take something different, the movie leaving its own individual snowflake in your mind. All I can say is it is a must view if you have not watched it to date.

    you are totally right

    The Dead Space series is a "great brand" for Electronic Arts, but a new entry in the series not in active development, the publisher has confirmed.

    "I wouldn't say [the Dead Space franchise is] cancelled at all," EA Games boss Patrick Söderlund said. "Dead Space remains a brand that is close to Electronic Arts' heart. It's been a great brand for us done by a very passionate team."
    Söderlund explained that Dead Space 3 developer Visceral Games is now working on an "exciting new project," which he believes is a better fit for the studio than a fourth entry in the action-horror series.

    "Is that team working on a Dead Space game today? No they're not," he said. "They're working on something else very exciting. You have to think of it from that perspective. Is it better to put them on the fourth version of a game they've done three previous versions of before? Or is it better to put them on something new that they want to build, that they have passion for?"

    Visceral Games is one of three EA studios working on all-new Stars Wars games, joining DICE and BioWare.
    Some source said in March that Dead Space series was called off because of the fail of Dead Space 3, and EA denied that.
