Reimagine: The Game

You know what today needs? It needs a mindless webgame that will leave you weeping in the corner, confused (and possibly aroused, you sick bastards). Thankfully there is such a game! nutcasenightmare has given unto an unwilling world the majesty that is Reimagine: The Game. Half platform freakout, and half traipse through every 4Chan/Reddit meme of the last 18 months, Reimagine kinda kicked my brain’s ass’s brain.

Which means it’s perfect for a post-holiday Tuesday, yes?

Get some. Get some hard.

Created by Jameson, this old timey animated short boils down Christopher Nolan’s Inception to 60 seconds.

I’ll admit I’ve grown a little weary of the sheer number of Inception trailer mashups out there, but this one using classic scenes from Ghosbusters brings plenty of the awesome!

This wasn’t a year to wow you. 2010 may have been somewhat of an off year for movies, but there are several quality films that hit theaters this year which are worth noting. A couple things struck me as I was putting together this list. First, how actresses stepped up huge this year. Whether in lead or supporting roles, it was a year dominated by the performances of the fairer sex. And second, 2010 was a year of raw emotion, almost visceral, brought to screen. You might argue that one or two of my choices didn’t have elaborate plots, but each delivered on an emotional level.

Another year of Cinema has come and gone, and I can’t help but feel we got cheated of any true masterpieces. Having said that, the next rung down – the four- and four-and-a-half star films of the world – seemed to be abnormally plentiful this year. In crafting my ten favorite films of the year, I ultimately came up with twenty-four films that I felt were worthy of a spot on the list – if not necessarily in any year, then pracitcally as much as any one that did make 2010’s cut. (As such, the unlucky fourteen are listed at the end). The following movies could just of easily been presented without order, none of them feel head-and-shoulders above any other; but after a few days of indecision, this is what I came to. Let me know what you think below – what were your favorite movies of the year?

Inception still dreamy on DVD

by Cap'n Carrot on December 2, 2010

in Film

I thoroughly enjoyed Christopher Nolan‘s Inception in theaters earlier this year (read the review). His exploration of dreams within dreams and a journey of one tortured soul (Leonardo DiCaprio) to make his way home by implanting a single idea into the dream of a stranger (Cillian Murphy) resonates as well on DVD as it did on the big screen. Out next week on DVD and Blu-ray it’s a great addition to your library.

The one-disc DVD is a little scant on extras (to put it midly). It does contain four short featurettes (averaging three minutes a piece) which include snippets from Nolan, DiCaprio, production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas, editor Lee Smith, cinamatopraher Wally Pfister, and stunt coordinator Tom Struthers, examining the aspect of dreams and the possibilities of the human mind, the japanese castle sequence, the paradoxical pemrose stairs, and the freight train barreling down the the middle of a busy street. Each of these is quite good but not quite enough to satisfy.

The three-disc Blu-ray includes a digital copy along with the film on both DVD and Blu-ray. This version also includes an “Extraction Mode” allowing you to go behind the scenes of several of the film’s signature moments, a featurette on the subject of dreams, and a full animation comic.

If you’re getting the DVD it’s the movie you’re paying for and you’ll get your money’s worth. I can’t speak to the Blu-ray features, but unless you need a digital copy and DVD as well you’re probably going to overspend for the package. Either way you go, however, Inception is one of the year’s best and worth adding to your collection.
