I never made it to the theatre to see this one. I've been checking the local 'Redbox' machines lately, and they only have it on blu-ray. Being cheap as fuck, I don't have a blu-ray player at the moment, so I figure wtf. $19.99 is 1/2 what it would have cost me to see it at the thatre, and I can smoke. So fuck it, I bought the DVD.

I like people. I don't want to offend too many of them without good reason. But what was all the hype about? It was okay. Maybe I'm missing something. I should watch it again to confirm my opinion.
I think a majority of my problem with this one is my disagreement with the idea that dreams are what they are portrayed as in the film. The resting mind is not just 'making shit up' in my opinion. We are geometrically compounding our consciousness when we release the focus our waking mind represents. That release of focus distorts the barrier between our thoughts and space/time. It's far more intense, and less Earthbound, than the maliable construct the characters were exploring. But that's just my opinion.
Still, it was visually very nice. A pretty film, yet it lost me at hello.
