Yes Eddy, Saw it on DVD and also on TV. It was a wonderful movie and i hated the end. I would not like to be in Thomas Jane's shoes

You got it mixed up. Prestige stars Christian Bale and not Christopher Nolan

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough. Nolan is the director. You should check his other movies, each one is a masterpiece in its own right.
Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight and now Inception.

ofcourse, that sordid ending added up to the movie. They show it quite often on TV, its watchable again and again.

P.S: Next in line is " 13 Ghosts". Been some time caught up on a horror movie. Anybody seen it?

btw, I am totally upset with "BIGFLIX" these days

Yes, the ending is great and even Stephen King ( on whose short story this movie is based on ) said that he thought this ending was better than his own ending. By the way, did you know that Tom Zane ( the hero in the movie ) started his career in a Telugu movie?

What are your thoughts on The Shining ? Considering its a 1980 movie, is it worth a watch now ? I generally don't like oldish movies.

The Shining is a great movie and Jack Nicholson gives one of the best performances of his career ( not counting "One flew over the Cuckoo's nest" ) . However, like all Stanley Kubrick's movies , it takes a little time warming up .

+1. Shining is a great movie. If nothing else, i would go watch it only for Jack Nicholson. An amazing actor with a lovely and unique style of dialogue delivery in his baritone voice

Caught up with this movie last night.

It's totally a childish concept and equally childish implementation and crappy to core with B-grade actors not making it any nicer.

I fast forwarded most of it.

Not even worth reviewing. But, why am i doing then?

AVOID IT

0/5

Nolan is probably the best director around in Hollywood currently. I would rank the above movies in the following order
- Memento
- Prestige
- Dark Knight
- Following
- Batman Begins
- Insomnia

Need to check out Inception - haven't seen it. Is it available on DVD or has it just been released in theatre?

My ranking of the above directors would be
- Christopher Nolan
- Quentin Tarantino
- Guy Ritchie
- Daylight
- Some more daylight
- Steven Spielberg.

Ritchie is below Tarantino in my list because he has made a crap movie like "Cast Away" & the very average "Sherlock Holmes".

Jack Nicholson is great in The Shining, but the movie is very slow, boring & average. For that matter I didn't like any of the other Kubrick movies I have seen. 2001 Space Odessey was very average. The first half of Full Metal Jacket was really good, but the 2nd half was boring.

You thought 2001 - Space Odyssey was average?
Sure it doesn't have a lot of dialogue or a very original plot (rather that machines taking over has been rehashed so much - but mostly happened AFTER this movie). Considering it came out in the 60s before the actual Moon landings the effects/depiction of Space etc is very good. It is one of the few movies which make you think for a while after it ends. Like Planet of the Apes.

In my rankings, "Martin Scorsese" is up there.

Just booked tickets for "Inception" for coming sunday.
Have great expectations for the movie.

Yeah - was bored to death. Fast forwaded a lot of stuff to finish the movie.

Remember the movie was a flop when released, was shot down by critics & very few people liked it.

It became a cult classic only much much later.
