I know, old news


I believe I was the last person on the planet to see this movie...but I FINALLY did.  I've been dying for weeks but it just kept not working out!  We've been waiting to have a free Saturday so we could see the first showing, which is the cheapest way to do it and we are...you know...trying to be frugal. Paying for a baby and all that.  Anyways, the next million Saturdays are all booked up!  I was getting discouraged.  I mentioned this on the phone to Katy yesterday, and she was a)shocked that I was so lame that I hadn't seen it yet, and b)disgusted that something as pedestrian as money would keep me from such a cinematic masterpiece.  She first berated me for not making the best movie ever more of a priority, and then told me that she'd pay me 20 bucks if we saw it that night.  Sometimes, Katy really pulls through for me :)  While it is funny that I would take money from my younger sister who is saving money for grad school, I still definitely would.  And did.  I texted Kyle and we went as soon as he got home from work.

And OH MY GOSH.  I know everyone already knows this...but it really is incredible.  I had heard that it was freakishly confusing, so I was a little concerned that I wouldn't get it...but that's totally not the case.  I mean, I'd say it's complex, not confusing.  And even if you don't immediately understand every single little detail, it's not like you can't follow what's going on perfectly well.  So don't worry about that.

I love Christopher Nolan.  He makes incredible movies.  And I love the casting.  Is that just because Michael Caine, one of my Favorite Men Ever, has a small role in it?  Probably.  NOT.  I also love Cillian Murphy with most of the fibers of my being.  (I can't say EVERY fiber because...I do understand why people think he's creepy, I certainly used to be terrified of him-- until he was in the BEST ZOMBIE MOVIE EVER and I realized the truth.)  I think Cillian didn't even LOOK creepy in this role--I hope people can start accepting him back into normal humanity :)  He's just a really good actor, I'm sure that's why most of the world is terrified of his face.  OH and Marion Cotillard is breathtakingly gorgeous. Seriously.  And I've always loved Ken Watanabe.  And Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Basically, everyone did a great job, and I love that Leonardo DiCaprio is successful even though he didn't stay hot.  


I think Velocity liked it...she was freaking out the entire time.  So thank you, Katy, for being an awesome sister and buying me movie tickets.  You were right, it is a freakishly awesome movie that I could watch again and again.

i totally want to see this movie-i have no idea how the plot will be, but it looks amazing-if only we weren't poor as well, but one of these saturdays we will see the matinee cause i want to see this more than i wanted to see karate kid or toy story3 which we all saw as matinees.

Ok, I never heard of this. I must be living under a rock.

Ya, for sure one of the best movies I've seen in a LONG time! I will probably go see it several more times while it's in the theater. I love Cillian too! But I have to say... You don't think Leo is hot? I can't agree with that...It's true that because he's a smoker he will not and has not aged that great, but come on, the man oozes sexy!

Awesome movie. I'm a huge Michael Caine fan, too.
