inception

so i saw inception last night and i kind of have mixed feelings about it...like i don't think i really liked it.

i feel like i understood what was going on for the most part which makes me think that maybe i didn't really understand it because everyone keeps saying it was really mind blowing and amazing and difficult to understand - but i didn't feel that way. and i have never had a reaction to a movie like i did this one, it was giving me so much anxiety that i was physically ill watching it, i just wanted it to end. i suppose the concept is interesting, but i don't like the idea of people messing with other people's minds to get what they want - it stresses me out. though i did feel better about things toward/at the end. maybe i need to see it again or discuss it with someone so i realize all the things i didn't catch and maybe i will like it more. maybe.

i think i just like movies that are mostly positive or funny or not too serious...like 17 again which i may have watched twice last weekend. yeah, i said it. twice. that movie is quickly becoming my favorite.

But seriously what about Tom Hardy? He was the BEST part of that movie. Oh, how I love him. Ever since we watched him in Wuthering Heights, I have been in love.

i didn't like it either!!! yay!!!

I tried outthinking it, and i understand it, but I still don't like it. I feel like it was just a series of realities and alternate realities strung together.

Not to toot my own horn or anything but i feel like i'm smarter than the average population and i had no idea what was going on in that movie. how is the rest of the world all getting it?
