Inception vs Sugar Ray
Having gone to see Inception a few weeks ago, I had a similar response as most, “Finally, a movie that doesn’t suck this year.” Also, “Is Joseph Gordon-Levitt crazy busy these days, or just somehow basing the movies he acts in on my haphazard viewing tendancies?”
There was however, something about Inception that was a bit unsettling. The shifting gravity was cool, and I was fine with the decision to have Ellen Page wear her hair in a bun so she wasn’t obscured in a mass off zero-G fluff (or for the sake of the FX guys being lazy). And of course the much lauded shifting gravity fighting wowed me… but that’s when it started to feel a bit familiar.
(Spoiler: Don’t push play if you haven’t seen the movie.)
And finally it hit me. I hereby propose that Christopher Nolan, or whomever instigated the scene, was (is?) an unabashed Sugar Ray fan. Undeniable proof… here:
Once again, the 90’s have proven their staying power.
And who can really cast the first stone, when the idea is clearly big in Hollywood right now.
