Merry Christmas with an Inception re-watch!

25th Dec '11

Merry Christmas to all!!!

Here in India we don't celebrate much of Christmas - unless we're christian! Being Goan does has its advantages of being part of this festival. Goa is paradise in December. It's lit, people are jolly and exchanging cakes, Bebinka, Dodol and chocolates. You see Christmas trees and cribs around you and the churches have the traditional Konkani midnight mass. Although I didn't do much this Christmas, I think it may have just been the best 2 days of Christmas I've ever celebrated. My family got together and me and my cousins made it through an impromptu plan of Shaami(my elder cousin bro - Abhinav)'s reckless driving (he's gonna kill me if he reads this), a match of beach Frisbee, swimming at Shivani-Soham's place, Rummikub and Pictionary (with Dhanu's innovate drawing skills), ghost stories at the terrace, and more swimming and eating at my place. So much that my body's been ACHING! :'(

BUT here's the thing guys, this post is NOT about Christmas, although I have the gift for gab. This is about Inception - the best part of today!
I was waiting to get a copy of a Bluray print of Inception and had vowed not to watch for the second time until I did. Thanks to Alok and a wonderful Christmas vacation, I could fulfill my long awaited rewatch! :D

I noticed all the flaws, the glitches, the brilliance, the tiny wonderful detailing of every aspect, the well thought-out sequence of events, the non-linear narratives that I LOVE, and the sheer BALLS to even get the idea of ATTEMPTING this film!! Heck, Nolan, all hail to your wonderful creation that's squeezed the fluid out of your brains! And ours! He inspires us to push WAAAAYYY beyond the ordinary boundaries and stretch our thinking till our brains explode.
Had I not watched it again, I REALLY would have missed on SO MUCH. And watching it on Bluray was more or less a dream come true! Makes me feel like getting up and thinking!

One last thing! Incase you were wondering how they made that INSANE corridor and anti-gravity sequence, here's a sneak peak of ten mins!

Enjoy! Cheers and Merry Christmas!!! :)
