the dvd has a special feature 2 do so and i recommend it if u are a fan of christopher nolan’s time elapse style filmmaking as seen in inception. the film is still very watchable (obviously because it is now in correct chronology) yet the ending seems more severe with the death scene having witnessed the friendship between teddy and leonard
anyway let me know what u thought!
I actually watched it while performing a headstand.
yeah i admit this topic is more promoting the idea, however it really is worthwhile :O(
i might get an answer this lifetime :O)
that one toothed monster looks like it did a twisted somersault off the chair and landed on it’s head!
Wouldn’t that really be watching it in not-reverse?
i didn’t see that monster does have 2 teeth ha ha
i mean watching the concept (which includes time elapsing) in reverse
“I actually watched it while performing a headstand.”
Apursansar, how do you type so well with your puffy hands?
@Apursansar, ROFL, thx my day is already made
Anyone watch this in correct chronological order? I’ve been curious about doing a re-edit so I could watch it this way.
Anyone notice that INCEPTION is…kind of the same as MEMENTO?
Ben, that’s what Like2Sleep means. On the DVD there is a special feature to watch the movie in correct chronological order, and from what I’ve heard (I haven’t seen it myself), it’s actually more interesting than you would think—in that the movie reallly does work both ways.
Inception to me was very surprisingly linear and literal, to tell the truth. Audiences unfamiliar with cross-cutting as a general technique may have been overwhelmed, but I thought Nolan was very careful about indicating the differences between the levels, how they interacted, and referring back to each other in a “Look, this is happening here so this is happening here, thus this is happening here. It makes sense and was already explained” sort of way. Memento took, I recall, a bit more effort because the anachronisms put the character in a new space each time and you had to rework how he got there until it connected with the last scene. I think the best example of this is the, “Wait, am I chasing this guy or is he chasing me?” scene. The character’s memory confusion matches the audiences own, while in Inception their control of the various levels and awareness of how they affect each other is also communicated by the structure of the movie. There really isn’t a lot of “mystery” to Inception, it’s all about playing with the worlds and setting up an unusual heist with science fiction technology.
It was boring enough when seen the regular way.
I like it in chronological order too except that I feel that it takes away the power of his self-fulfilling prophecy. If you watch it in order, it just seems natural that he would come to this conclusion. In its original presentation, the viewer gets the clues last and realizes that Leonard is going to keep killing every John or James G. he comes across. I prefer the threat of future killings over the shock of John’s death. But both are good. Same with “Following.”
I do really prefer watching it in the “normal way”.
Watching it from start to finish was bad enough.
I didn’t get the impression he was going to keep killing, because in his past killings, John was taking away all his photos. This time there’s noone there to take his ‘I killed John G’ photo away from him.
I think it works better in reverse order, because it leaves you with the impression: Everybody in his life is just manipulating him — even himself.
“On the DVD there is a special feature to watch the movie in correct chronological order”
Yeah, if I remember correctly, as it is presented in the regular cut of the formal the B&W sequences actually occur in chronological order, it’s just the color sequences, with the color stuff following the B&W stuff, chronologically speaking.
