What if we said he played the crew member who turned on Neo in the first Matrix movie? Or he was the main character's friend in Memento? Or how about Ralph Cifaretto on The Sopranos, the guy who ends up

Christopher Nolan Is Snubbed By The Academy Awards AGAIN!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm FlickersAwardz

Understandable! If we were to give one complaint about the nominations, this would definitely be it!

Out of all the just-announced Academy Award nominations, it seems that the most backlash seems to be coming from Inception director Christopher Nolan's omission from the category of 'Best Director!'

While he was on the list of nominees - alongside Darren Aronofsky, David Fincher, David O. Russell, and Tom Hooper - for the 2011 Directors Guild of America, he is the ONLY one who didn't pick up an Academy Award nomination, instead being replaced by Joel and Ethan Coen!

And this is the THIRD time it's happened - he was previously nominated by the DGA for Memento and The Dark Knight, but snubbed when the Oscar nominations came around!

What gives?!

We think that given the consistently innovative and original material he produces, he deserves his name on that list! It's more than about time, guys!

Thoughts??

"I got them! I got a pair [of glasses] from the first film and a pair from the last one, so I was really, really pleased. The ones from the first [films] were very tiny."

John Landis Vs. Inception

Filed under: Film Flickers

john landis argues that inception is not original

There's no denying the fact that Inception is visually stunning…but is it original?

Some critics absolutely love the film for its originality, but some have denounced the film for being too similar to films such as 1984's Dreamscape, and 2006's anime film Paprika.

Legendary horror director John Landis has decided to take a stand against Inception.

Here's what he had to say about Christopher Nolan's mindbender:

"Interestingly enough 'Inception,' which is wonderful, is not original. There have been a lot of movies like it; remember 'Dreamscape?' Oh that's bad special effects but almost the same movie. It's Dennis Quaid and Edward Albert is the president of the United States and they insert him into his dreams."

More from Landis:

"Ya know, I think, don't misunderstand me I think Christopher Nolan is a wonderful director it's just I don't think he is yet to make a movie other than 'Memento' that I thought was really original, its just very stylish."

And more:

"He's a lucky guy, I'm glad for him; I love the fact that he can continue to make his movies. Whether he makes a couple of unsuccessful ones in a row, he'll be in the same situation as everybody else. More power to him I like smart filmmakers and I think he's great."

We def enjoyed Inception, but Landis certainly makes valid points. There are absolutely similarities between Dreamscape and Nolan's film.

What do U think? Is Inception unoriginal? Does Landis' argument change your feelings about the film?
