Film critic Peter Travers first to review and praise Christopher Nolan's Inception

Jun. 24, 2010by: George Merchan

To say INCEPTION is a highly anticipated film around these parts is, frankly, one hell of an understatement. Add to the fact that we're having a pretty underwhelming summer movie season, and suddenly Chris Nolan's cinematic bit of mindf*ckery - with its big budget spectacle and stellar cast - has become THE film we hope will save it all.

Well this will get your motor running. Rolling Stone film critic Peter Travers is the first to review INCEPTION, and his words are pretty much what we as movie fans have all wanted to hear. The full review is not yet online, but The New York Post quotes the first paragraph from Rolling Stone magazine. It's enough to give you a taste, and best of all, it doesn't get into any spoilers. Here's the quote:

"The mind-blowing movie event of the summer arrives just in time to hold back the flow of Hollywood sputum that's been sliming the multiplex. 'Inception'...will be called many things, starting with James Bond Meets 'The Matrix.' You can feel the vibe of Ridley Scott's 'Blade Runner' in it, and Nolan's own 'Memento' and 'The Dark Knight.' But 'Inception' glows with a blue-flame intensity all its own. Nolan creates a dream world that he wants us to fill with our own secrets. I can't think of a better goal for any filmmaker. Of course, trusting the intelligence of the audience can cost Nolan at the box office. We're so used to being treated like idiots. How to cope with a grand-scale epic, shot in six countries at a reported cost of $160 million, that turns your head around six ways from Sunday? Dive in and drive yourself crazy, that's how.''

INCEPTION f*cks minds everywhere on July 16th.
Extra Tidbit: Do you guys really think "trusting the intelligence of the audience [will] cost Nolan at the box office" as Travers suggests?

Have no fear, Schmoes!

This movie has everything we all want in a film. It will be a nice break from all of the brainless Summer fare so far. Travers is spot on with his comparisons to The Matrix and the Bond films. There is an obvious Momento feel and the set design is very Dark Knight. The pacing is also similar to DK with long spurts of action glued together by intelligent and interesting dialog and character development. If you prefer anything that's been out this Summer over Inception you may as well check

Sounds good but...

"Nolan creates a dream world that he wants us to fill with our own secrets"
This quote scares the hell out of me. If this film doesn't make sense, or needs an army of quasi-religious online fans to decphier I'm gonna be pissed.
If we have to use our own secrets to make this film work, it's in trouble.
I don't think a complex plot will hurt it as much as the subject matter (dreams) allowing anything to happen. With that setup anything could happen and 'it's all a dream/in your head'. If thats

How do you know this is the best movie coming out??? And you guys are the haters because you all hate on anything except Inception. The best movie coming out is THE LAST AIRBENDER. Not this. Last Airbender is going to be insannne. This is going to laaaame. Sorry guys, it's just the truth. My friend works at a post-production house and he said it was so hard to follow, long, and boring. And the acting is real bad. So have fun getting disappointed.

I remember when M. night's movie, "the happening" was getting ready to come out, everyone was hyped because M. night is the man, but that movie ended up blowing major dick. Nolan on the other hand, made probably THE best batman movie to date. (open for debate)
Nolan is the man, Leo is the man, and like Travers said, Inception will need to depend on the intelligence of the audience. So maybe your friend is a dumbass?

just sayin, give it a shot. could blow your mind, could be a piece of shit,

oh yea, im just as excited for The last airbender to be released as well. Love M. Night, but the chances of the last airbender sucking ass are about the same as inception sucking ass. so be glad there are two awesome movies coming out!!!

I know I shouldn't bring his name up ever again, but I have a feeling that he will fuck over this film BIG time.

"Inception is a lowlight this summer, due to it's inexcusable celebration of consumerism."

I swear it'll read alot like that! I am excited though, and probably will actually pay money for it just like Toy Story 3. (the only summer movie I experienced this summer.)

Travers suggests

If people are too stupid to appreciate or get complex movies those people should just stick to RomComs and all those CGI kiddie flicks! I don't think this will hurt it's box office success.

Unfortunately, Mr. Travers is correct... The majority of movie-goers are completely retarded (a vast understatement), but with Christopher Nolan's reputation and Leo's "star power" I'm sure it will make a decent amount of cash... hopefully enough to break even. I would love to see more Nolan films that AREN'T Bat-volved. I also think with the way its been promoted and the trailer has been cut, its left enough mystery and "action" for people to want to come see it. Perhaps they won't enjoy the

Sorry to say, but audiences these days do not like being made out to feel stupid. A thrilling thinking man's movie in the summer, no matter how good it may actually be, won't have legs. Sure it'll make a decent amount of money, it may even open #1 (if Sorcerer's Apprentice doesn't steal that (which it probably will)) but it'll quickly slide down the box office charts into oblivion and be replaced by films like Step Up 3D. The truth hurts.

I can go either way on the audience intelligence debate. Cause it's true, a majority of American audiences are spoon-fed these days. This is the YouTube age, my friends. Most young people can barely pick up a newspaper because it feels ancient to them. I think the film will sell a lot of tickets to non-hardcore fans just based on the "from the director of The Dark Knight" line, but still... It's VERY possible a chunk of audiences will not understand a high concept film like this.

There are people who thought The Hurt Locker was too slow, and that's a low-budget indie that's just as entertaining and explosive as the next action film, if not more.

And I gulp at the thought of this movie taking second place to The Sorcerer's Apprentice July 16th weekend. It couldn't be true, but come on... Just look at the top 10 grossing films of most years. I will remain optimistic about this but I wouldn't trash the guy just cause he made a remark that has a lot of backing. But yeah, Travers is also an unreliable critic at times, so maybe my rant is useless?

He gave Inception 3.5/4, so he didn't think it was as perfect as the overly glowing quote suggests.

Though Travers is a lot like Knowles. He gets too hyped up about films, and usually always gives a very hyped up film 3.5/4 rating.

Travers is right

These are the kind of movies that we true movie fans just cannot wait for. But the typical movie audience just wants to go watch shit blow up, and I think Travers is right when mentioning the possibility of trusting the intelligence of the audience could backfire. Its happened before, this movie could possibly not even get full status until its DVD release. But I really hope it does well, because we need to tell Hollywood through this movie, that we want something that makes us think and

We can watch stuff explode anytime, but it's rare that we catch a movie that looks and feels as special as this one.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop was number one for how many weeks again? As was Big Momma's House 1 and 2. So audience intelligence is a big factor.

That said, this has been my most anticipated movie of the year. Followed closely by Tron 2.

So, not sharing your taste in movies makes the audience stupid?

I honestly thought Tron was a terrible movie. But I'm not going to call you or anyone else an unintelligent for liking it.

Silverload, let me guess, you saw Tron on DVD and not in the theater when it first came out, right? That's generational.

Paul Blart and Big Momma's House are just stupidly bad movies that are worse than some of those American Pie direct to DVD movies that have been coming out for the last year.

Sorry if the truth hurts.

No, I never saw Tron in theaters (not that it matters one bit), but I did think it was a stupid movie. It was poorly written, had bad dialog, and the directing was subpar at best. The entire film was a mindless special effects exercise that targeted gamers. It was pop culture fluff. Much like Big Mama's house or Mall Cop.

And that's why you don't get it.

When Tron came out there was no such thing as "gamers". Tron came out in 1982. The Atari 2600 came out in 1983. So trying to explain this to someone born in the 1990s is like trying to explain how life was before cell phones. That's what I mean by generational.

Paul Blart and Big Momma's House started off as bad and unfunny and stupid. There's a difference there.

Actually, I was born in the early 80s.

Tron was a bad film aimed at a very specific audience. And that audience ate it up because it was for them, it didn't matter if Tron was a stupidly bad film.

Same thing with Mall Cop & Big Mamma. Kevin James & Martian Lawrence had legions of devoted fans long before those films. Those films were targeted at their fan base. Didn't matter if those films were bad, the fans would still see it.

Edit: Even if the audience had fun with those bad films

Plenty of smart & great films have been just as successful, and loved by the very same people.

Actually Tron was aimed at a sci-fi audience. Anyway, fact is that Tron is considered a classic, while the other two are largely forgotten a year after their release.

Back to audience intelligence, a classic example is Back to the Future 2 which explained the alternate timeline to the audience using a chalkboard, yet the majority of people still didn't get it.

On the contrary: Trusting the intelligence of the audience is the only thing that will save cinema as we know it.

I think audiences will only fall for dumb movies for so long.

The Dark Knight was one of the smartest films of the last decade, with an extremely dark villain and a complicated plot, and it is the 3rd highest grossing movie of all time. I donít think it was merely the celebrity of Heath Ledger or the popularity of Batman that carried TDK to a billion dollars. I think it was an amazing, intelligent movie, which is what audiences crave.

And so, my rant concludes with the following statement: Audiences are not as stupid as generally perceived, and Inception will make a shitload of money.

The more fanboys hype this film up, the more interest I loose. Movie might just be fantastic, most likely is, but I couldn't care any less at the moment. And it's just straightup ass kissing when a critic praises this film only to knock all the others this year. YAWN.

Not surprised...

And yes, complicated films can really push away a lot of people without question. I know people who are still confused by the first "Matrix" film even though it's as clear as you could imagine from my perspective.

But I think the massive appeal will draw people out and force us to think just like "The Prestige" did.

If I like this film...

It will be despite agreeing with Travers. He's callous and unengaged in his negative reviews, and shamelessly hamming it up for DVD cover soundbites in his postive reviews. The common thread - the shrill whine of a man who has the hubris to think his contributions to film are greater than that of filmmakers.

Travers is the only critic I trust... because 99% of the time his opinion is exactly the same as mine!

Looking forward to this film, I don't think Nolan's made a bad film yet, this looks no different!

That Collector pop-up's really getting on my tits tho!
