today on facebook someone said that my inception article made me a " geek with a major sci-fi hookup - and a stick stuck up their ass."
they also said that they agree with me about nolan's conception of the human mind being "far too rational/logical"
then they went on to say that i missed the fact that " Ellen Page noticed Di Caprio's emotional issues soon after meeting him, while all his long-time buddies seemed completely oblivious - that one struck me for sure."
actually, reader, i found if sexist that ellen page automatically noticed those issues, considering women are often thrown into taking care of men's (and everyone's) emotional needs.
i think it's sexist that ellen page was supposed to be this brilliant architect, but they made her a caretake of leonardo dicaprio above all.
i just didn't put it in the article because i thought i had griped enough.
said reader wrote: "I just think that it's incredibly easy for someone to critique a movie and make it sound terrible, because it wasn't what they wanted. There are a million different ways and focuses to choose in a movie, and you could conceivably critique every one ever made for some failing or another.
I don't think Inception was bad enough to make such a terrible hoopla over"
true. but then what's the point of even being alive or watching movies? so we can all just silently keep our opinions to ourselves?? what's the fun in that? why make a "hoopla" over anything then? was inception worth making a hoopla over in a hype way?? why not comment on that?
sorry i said i didn't like a movie that you didn't like, but you're entitled to your opinion and i'm entitled to mine. that's the whole point of the internets.
having an argument/debate with someone about something doesn't always have to be seen as insulting. it isn't always trying to cause something bigger. maybe if once in awhile we opened our minds to having more debates, we'd actually learn something?
let's not critique anything from now on.
