Only part I don't care for. Script is fantastic.

eh except it focus's on keeping the viewers attention through unnecessary action (i.e. the subconscious attacks you in an unnecessary and childishly explained gunfight, probably because the movie had to make up for lack of antagonist, because Nolan is really just a popcorn director after all and can't go without an antagonist) and then uses horrible urban legend science, which is this idea that we only use part of our brains, to explain that planting an "idea" means we act on this idea (when we have plenty of ideas we never act on.) For having ten years to write this you think he'd have gotten some kind of modern science correct..
The characters aren't interesting. Cobb is one of the least interesting protagonist that I've ever come across. And I don't even know what the other character motivations are.
But hey throw in a magical suitcase and complicate "dream rules" (although leave huge inconsistencies) and you have a brilliant script!

What a bar to set!!!!

Memento is his best. Inception features everything I find wrong with Nolan.

This is a pretty awful thread.

Funny how Inception is so widely well-received, and Absolutepunk is pretty much the opposite

Absolutepunk is a parallel universe where Christopher Nolan sucks

a. it seems like there's a fair number of people here who DO enjoy christopher nolan so i don't think you can label ap as a Christopher nolan hating community

b. id be willing to wager the idea of christopher nolan being subpar isn't exclusive to this website

There is plenty of criticism of Nolan's work. You have to look outside of things like IMDb, though.

Edit: Damn, just got beat to the news... Can't wait for this though. It's crazy to see November becoming the new March in terms of big releases.

True, but I mean the month as a whole. It always seemed to be crammed around Thanksgiving. It was kind of rare to see these big movies that could be June/July tent poles show up in the first week of November.

I think it's the expansion of the Best Picture field. Studios feel more confident releasing genre fare in awards season now.
