I was quite blown away by The Matrix. That film was thought-provoking and oodles of fun. When Morpheus proclaims "He is the one!" it sends a chill up your spine. The Matrix was also ground-breaking cinematically introducing an array of dazzling new special effects - which feel like retreads in "Inception." Yeah, I liked the street folding up upon itself in "Inception." That was good. But what was with the hokey "mirror door" effect on the bridge?. That was like the worst attempt at a special effect in recent cinema that I've seen - they must have hired David Copperfield to create that one. Yes, i did like Nolan's Batman because it was unique. It was unique because it was the first Batman movie to be directed absolutely straight. It felt more like a crime film like Michael Mann's "Heat" than a Batman movie. That's what made it original. Maybe that's what was working against him with "Inception?" He didn't let his imagination go wild enough?
