Day 1 - Your favorite character: Mal!!!! :DDDDDDDD Though I'm continually amazed at how all the actors seem to deliberately play themselves as fully-developed shades that never come close to achieving a tenth of the complexity of the central character. I've watched a lot of post-hearthrob Leo films this year, and I find I don't know what to make of him at all.
Day 2 - Your favorite quote: oh my god, the script is SO TERRIBLE. SDKJALD;F;KS. I MEAN HOW DO YOU POSSIBLY PICK THE WORST LINE?
"YOU NEED SOMEONE DOWN THERE WHO UNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH!!!!"
"MAL IS BURSTING THROUGH YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS!"
"YOU MEAN THAT I KNEW YOU WERE PLANNING TO STEAL, OR THAT WE ARE ~ACTUALLY DREAMING~ RIGHT NOW?"
"I SPECIALIZE IN A SPECIFIC TYPE OF SECURITY. ...SUBCONSCIOUS SECURITY." ASDKFDFKD.
"SPECIFICITY, EAMES. ...SPECIFICITY."
"SHE'S NOT REAL!" "HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT FOR SURE?"
"WE WOKE UP ON THE SHORE OF OUR OWN SUBCONSCIOUS."
"THEY'RE SUBCONSCIOUS PROJECTIONS." "ARE YOU ERASING THOSE PARTS OF HIS MIND?" "NO, THEY'RE JUST PROJECTIONS."
"THEY'RE TRAINED, HOW CAN THEY BE TRAINED?!?!" KSLDJFKL;SADFLDSD OH MY GOD ALL ELLEN'S LINES EVER ARE SO EMBARRASSING. "YOU MEAN LIKE A WORK STUDY?" KSLJFD;KLSADJFD :((((( In your other reality, you have a fully-developed character who exists as more than just a vehicle to help the audience follow the plot and allow Cobb to work through his therapy session. :(((((
but i think the "You're waiting for a train. A train that will take you far away. You hope you know where this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter, because you'll be together." <-- HANDS-DOWN, THIS IS THE WORST-WRITTEN RECURRING METAPHOR OF ALL TIME. OF ALL TIME!!!!!
sajdkfsjkdsdskd GOD, WORST SCRIPT EVER KJDFL;JSADKLFDKLASKD
Day 3 - Your favorite scene
EVERYTHING FROM THE MOMENT COBB WAKES UP AND EYEFUCKS SAITO AND THEN WALKS THROUGH THE AIRPORT AND THE MUSIC SWELLS AND EVERYONE OF THE TEAM JUST FEELS CONNECTED IN THIS 'HOLY SHIT WE ALL GOT THROUGH IT' MOMENT AND IDECARE IF IT'S REAL OR NOT, I'M TEARING UP JUST THINKING ABOUT IT <3333333333333333333333
Day 4 - Your favorite score
I emailed Club 5 at like 5 am this morning going I JUST REALIZED THAT EVERY SINGLE NOTE IN THE SCORE IS A REMIX OF NON JE NE REGRETTE RIEN! I don't know why it took me so long to get that since Han Zimmer fucking *said* that every single note in the score was taken from the Piaf, but somehow the meta of this particular score being a note-for-note rearrangement of the actual song that's woven into the actual plot never kicked in til tonight when I had no sleep, and it just seemed newly cool and metariffic all over again.
Also, I love that when the avalanche falls in the kick on the third level, it's actually falling in synchronization with those horns. It's so subtle but ugh it kills me.
Day 5 - Your totem
I keep thinking about this. It's a hard question! I think I've almost decided it'd be the silver dollar-sized ceramic coffee coin for the kiosk across the street, because it's really unique and not like anything else, and unless alestar broke into my dreams, no one else would know what it looked like.
But then I feel boring, because your totem is supposed to say something about *you*, and mine really wouldn't at all. :( It'd just make sense as something to use.
Day 6 - A song that makes you think of Inception
NON, JE NE REGRETTE RIEN. And also the Scala "Creep" because I've seen that creepy-ass trailer every time I've seen the movie and it really squicks me out skfd;jsdakj;dsdskfjsfj;dsds
Day 7 - Who would you be and why? (Forger, Architect, Point Man, Extractor, Chemist)
I would be the hapless mark going along with everything and never realizing I had been a giant victim of inception.
Day 8 - Your reaction to the ending.
:D :D :D :D
Day 9 - Do you think it fell over? (a simple yes or no will suffice, to keep spoilers low) <-- lol thinks anyone doing this meme hasn't already spoiled anyone reading it by now, nine questions in, NICE OF YOU TO TELL US NOW, MEME-MAKER
Not a chance!
Day 10 - If you could guarantee one Academy Award for Inception, what would it be (besides best movie)?
BEST SCORE. BEST SCORE. BEST SCORE. BEST SCORE.
Day 11 - 17 - In your group of friends who would be:
- the Extractor? Sam, obviously
- The Point Man? Rach, who would be better at it than anyone alive, btw
- The Chemist? Kara because she knows exactly what ingredients to use to make reality appear brand-new (this makes sense in my head)
- The Forger? I feel like Sam and Starla would need to combine their powers and make one good forger between them
- The Architect? Cathy, of course
- The Tourist? Val, who'd just be like, lol guys, what
- The Mark? ME D:
Day 18 - Take a picture/draw/sing/whatever something Inception related.
... What i. wait no this question is stupid. OKAY FINE.
There once was a woman named Mal,
Who courageously took a great fall
She woke up from limbo,
Now her husband's a bimbo
Who thinks he's the next Abagnale.
SHUT UP IT RHYMES IN THE DREAMSTATE
Day 19 - Would you mind if the concept of idea thievery and inception was a part of our reality? Why or why not?
It reminds me a lot of Holly Black's White Cat in that it's a story about a con job based upon one very specific, fantastic change to our everyday reality. So it's really easy to conceptualize because everything else stays the same.
Day 20 - A pairing you ship
COBB/SAITO! They are totally this universe's Jim & Kirk. They even have the mind meld!
Day 21 - What was the best dream you ever had?
It involved Ralph Fiennes and a limo.
Day 22 - What was the worst dream you ever had?
It involved Druids, a head of cabbage, Bernadette Peters, the former leader of the KKK, and a botched music recital, and it was the most terrifying dream I've ever had and actually I view it as a giant harbinger of destructive events that happened in my life immediately afterwards. That's never happened before or since.
Day 23 - A letter to your favorite character
Dear Mal, You are the ultimate architect, and you can show me what it means to be a lover any time. Just saying.
Day 24 - How many times have you or are you going to see Inception?
Until a better bootleg comes out I will continue to ENDURE THAT CREEPY FACEBOOK MOVIE TRAILER JESUS and see it in theatres.
Day 25 - Who would you incept?
Myself dskljfla, COULD I EVEN DO THAT
Day 26 - What idea would you incept? That's personal!
Day 27 - If you made a candy bar based off Inception, what would it be? (random, I know)
Well, obviously it would have 4 different layers: a white chocolate coating, nougat, caramel, and pure liquid milk chocolate truffle filling at the center. Mmmmm, limbo.
Day 28 - What about a veggie/hamburger? okay, enough with the food.
Day 29 - Yes/No/Maybe So? Whatever day! (Yeah, ran out of ideas) THIS MEME IS LAME I DON'T HAVE TO ENDURE YOU. *ARTHUR FACE*
Day 30 - A letter to Christopher Nolan.
Dear Chris Nolan,
By no means do I think you are the best director in the universe. And your script-writing skills suck.
But that hallway scene was pretty great ok :D
