VideoSong: Inception Meets Daft Punk

Like vanilla ice cream and crunchy peanut butter, some things just go together. In this mashup, indie musician Jack Conte from Pomplamoose takes Daft Punk’s “Derezzed” from the Tron: Legacy soundtrack and combines it with elements from Hans Zimmer’s “Inception” soundtrack. It’s a VideoSong so you’ll see what you hear, and hear what you see. Check it out below.

BONUS: After the jump Conte covers the Super Mario Bros. theme song and then joins Nataly Dawn to take on Angry Birds.

Inception Re-Told in Vintage Paper Cutouts

In the Done in 60 Seconds competition hosted by Jameson and Empire Magazine, entrants are tasked with remaking a movie within the confines of a minute. As his entry into the competition, artist Wolfgang Matzl chose to re-tell the dreamy story of Inception using a collection of 19th century-styled paper cutouts.

Inception Fan Art: 10 Minimalist Movie Posters

Christopher Nolan’s heist film Inception is in its second week on the South African circuit and according to SterKinekor’s Twitter account this smart, imaginative film hasn’t exactly wowed audiences, who it seems would rather watch any mindless drivel as long as it’s in eye-popping 3D.

SA Box Office Top 5:
1. Grown Ups
2. Shrek Forever After (incl 3D)
3. Inception
4. Cats & Dogs 2 (incl 3D)
5. Knight & Day

While some local people raved about Inception on Twitter, others were a little more circumspect, like Durban writer Noelle Adams who seemed a little underwhelmed in her review of the movie. I’d probably need to see it again but for a summer blockbuster I found it far more visceral and imaginative than anything I have seen in a very long while. But this post isn’t about me, rather other people who liked the movie enough to create their interpretations of it in the form of posters. We’ve searched the Internet to bring you 10 of our favourite minimalist posters for Inception – check them out after the jump.


What Local Tweeps Say About Inception

However right or wrong, I tend to use Rotten Tomatoes as a yardstick when it comes to deciding whether I want to watch a movie. They’ve not always been right, for example Enduring Love garnered 61% and when I saw it I would have rather poked a bear in the testicles, an experience would have been far more pleasurable that what I saw on the big screen. In any case, sometimes you don’t want (or need) to read a lengthy dissertation about a movie by some pompous critic, you want to know what people on the street think about it.

Christopher Nolan’s Inception just released this weekend and in case you wanted to forgo the critics’ thoughts (spoiler: they liked it) and opt for opinions in 140 characters or less, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve searched high and low on Twitter, from the mother city to eGoli to Polokwane for what South African tweeple are saying about Inception. You might think our sampling might be confirmation bias, but I assure you it’s not – of the tweets we found, only two people fell asleep and Sentletse Diakanyo from Thought Leader seems to have left before it ended – perhaps he couldn’t hold his pee in any longer.

Just watched Inception again…. Awesome… Again… Go watch it…. Now!Sun Aug 01 18:21:16 via Twitter for BlackBerry®

Pure Brilliance! Inception Meets Toy Story 3

Christopher Nolan’s existential heist-film Inception is doing fabulously at the American box office grossing over USD 140 million thus far. It’s certainly our most anticipated movie of the year and is finally showing in South Africa this weekend.

Pixar’s best film to date, Toy Story 3, is being hailed as an almost perfect film, ranking 99% at Rotten Tomatoes.

So we have two fantastic films and as it so happens awesome things have a habit of attracting each other. From the peeps over at Screen Rant comes a brilliant little mashup that blends the colourful visuals of Toy Story 3 with the eerie sounds of Inception. Check out their re-cut trailer below.

BONUS: YouTube user ColbyCornish has created another related trailer mashup, this time with the two most bodacious dudes – Bill & Ted’s Excellent Inception. No…way. Yes way. See it after the jump.

Subconscious Security is Serious Business

The first trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film Inception merely told us it was a sci-fi mystery set within the architecture of the mind (see it here). It was painfully vague yet so very tantalizing. The newest trailer dropped this past weekend and gives a better look into the life of Dom Cobb, a corporate spy who nicks secrets from deep within the subconscious of his victims. The thief has lost things dear to him but has a chance at redemption with one last, almost impossible job.

Inception is written and directed by Christopher Nolan and has a first-rate cast including Leonardo Dicaprio, Ken Watanabe, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ellen Page. The accompanying poster looks good as well, with a M.C. Escher look about it.

Inception is due out in the U.S. on July 16th, and will air in South Africa at the end of July. It will not be in 3D. It’s certainly the movie I’m most looking forward to this year. What’s yours?

UPDATE (May 26th): Here’s a preview of the international trailer that was aired on a Japanese television station during an interview with Ken Watanabe. The new footage starts at the 39-second mark.

But now, for the sake of brevity and for your watching pleasure, I present to you Friday’s Mega Trailer Blowout! Admittedly there are only five trailers, but it took a mega-effort for my lazy-ass to compile this shit together. A simple thank you will suffice ;-)

Hit the jump to see trailers for Bronson, Zombieland, Dorian Gray, Inception, and Transforminators.
