Inception

In honor of the release of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar this week, I’ve been working on a musical project for the past few months: Attempting to perform the final music track from Inception (“Time” by Hans Zimmer) using a single, looping cello. I’ve been re-discovering my love for the cello recently, and by incorporating an electric pickup and a looping pedal, I have tried to create large-scale sounds using repeating chords on a single instrument.

Hit the jump to see a music video of “Time” performed using a single cello.

LOL: A Mom Explains Christopher Nolan’s ‘Inception’

Inception

In the four years since Inception has come out, we’ve seen roughly a half a million infographics and perhaps another half a million thinkpieces attempting to explain Inception. Still, you’ve probably never seen it broken down and analyzed quite like this.

Filmmaker Joe Nicolosi got his mom to watch the sci-fi mind-bender and then tell him “what she thought happened, and who she thought it happened to.” He then illustrated her version of the story for the rest of us to enjoy. What do Matt Damon, the NSA, and a mole have to do with the plot of Inception? Watch Inception Retold By Mom after the jump to find out.

‘Inception’-Inspired Board Game Is a Dream Come True

Inception board game

If you walked out of Inception wishing you could spend a little more time in Christopher Nolan‘s lush sci-fi world, a new (unofficial) Inception board game could be just the thing to make your dreams come true.

Created by Bruno Gervasi and Reid Cuddy, Inceptor unfolds pretty much like the inceptions from the movie — only players roll dice and collect cards to manipulate the Mark, instead of injecting mind-bending chemicals and plugging in futuristic technology. Learn more about it after the jump.

Christopher Nolan‘s Inception was never meant to be simple. The film features a final shot that explicitly doesn’t tell us what happens in the end and a plot that mirrors the world it creates, featuring many layers of story rolling out simultaneously. And it’s a movie about entering other people’s dreams. For that reason alone, it was bound to have plot holes. At least it keeps us entertained long enough to ignore them.

Wait, is this a dream? Haven’t you read that last paragraph before? Yes you have. In January, the “Honest Trailer” for Inception was released, pointing out all of the film’s flaws. Now we’ve got a similar video from a competing team that’ll aim to point out everything wrong with Inception in 4 minutes or less. Read More »

And it’s a movie about entering other people’s dreams. For that reason alone, it was bound to have plot holes. At least it keeps us entertained long enough to ignore them.

But no matter. The team at Screen Junkies has decided to set Inception in its sights for the latest Honest Trailer. Really, what did Inception do to deserve that? Nolan’s brief detour from Batman was minding its business, quietly playing on HBO and living on your DVD shelf. And while this trailer, like the others, is funny and makes some good points, I think it stretches more than most. Do you agree? Check it out below.

VOTD: ‘the films of [Christopher Nolan]‘

From the earliest installments of his “[the films of]” project, I’ve noticed /Film commenters wondering if and when Kees van Dijkhuizen would get around to spotlighting Christopher Nolan. The British director inspires fervent devotion from movie geeks as few other filmmakers do, thanks to his wildly ambitious imagination, his masterful storytelling, and his eye for cool beauty, and van Dijkhuizen notes that he’s received “hundreds, literally hundreds of requests” for a video showcasing Nolan’s unique style.

Now, for the eleventh installment of his yearlong, twelve-part montage series, van Dijkhuizen has finally released “[the films of] Christopher Nolan,” with a sleek stylishness that serves fitting tribute to the Dark Knight director. Watch the video after the jump.
