WHY IT’S NOT: Personally, I was pretty enthralled by this pipe dream of summer blockbuster—metaphysics at the mindless movies, who woulda thunk?! But many of of my fellow moviegoers had one mega-complaint: it was just too damn long. And I kinda agree. Did they really need to be on that winter level for so long? I mean, let’s face it, when Leo and ice get together, disaster is bound to ensue. But seriously, Chris Nolan could have trimmed out about 10 minutes and our minds would have remained fully fucked. – Emily
THE FINAL VERDICT: Inception is this year’s Inglourious Basterds. We’re all convinced the instant cult classic doesn’t have a real shot at winning but we’re glad to see a film so awesome getting recognition.
