John Landis Says 'Inception' Isn't Original -- Do You Agree?

Christopher Nolan's dream-within-a-dream saga 'Inception' has endured its fair share of criticism since the movie's release this summer. While many have hailed the film as a visual masterpiece and a true original, others have noted similarities between 'Inception' and a handful of other films like 1984's 'Dreamscape' and the 2006 anime 'Paprika.' Now, 'Burke & Hare' director John Landis is adding his vote to the "not original" category by stating that he doesn't think Nolan's latest is anything new.

Landis had this to say about the film: "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. »

John Landis Dissed 'Inception' Originality

26 October 2010 1:56 AM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

John Landis believes "Inception" is "not original". The "Burke and Hare" filmmaker believes the Christopher Nolan-directed project, which was widely loved by critics on its release earlier this year, is "almost the same" as 1984 movie "Dreamscape" with Dennis Quaid and he doesn't think Nolan has many new ideas.

"Interestingly enough 'Inception', which is wonderful, is not original," he said. "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."

"Ya know, I think, don't misunderstand me I think Christopher Nolan is a wonderful director its 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."

However, John believes the Oscar-winning »

John Landis has said that he does not believe Inception is original. The Burke & Hare director admitted that he thinks the film is "wonderful" but pointed out similarities with previous pictures - most notably 1984 movie Dreamscape.

Landis told Obsessed With Film: "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 (more) »

Ode to Roger Corman, Part 1: Galaxy of Terror

By Fred Burdsall

If I were to make a list of my favorite directors it would look like this:  1. Alfred Hitchcock  2. Dario Argento  3. Ridley Scott  4. Lucio Fulci and 5. Roger Corman.  Why Roger Corman? If you hand him half a mil and say “I need this pic by the end of the week”… he’ll deliver. Let’s see the almighty Spielberg do that. Roger Corman is the king of making something for nothing and we are the better for it because his movies are what movies should be…Fun. I would love to see what he could do with a budget and a solid script, but that won’t happen, so let’s accept him as the low budget God he is.

The list of people who have worked for him is ridiculous. Nicholson, Scorsese, Cameron, Coppola and a boatload of  actors who’ve all made a mark on the »

DVD Playhouse—July 2010

By

Allen Gardner

Two From Powell/Pressburger Criterion releases gorgeous new transfers of two of the greatest films to come out of post-war Britain, from that period’s greatest filmmaking team: Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Black Narcissus was originally released in 1947 and caused a sensation with its explosive story about a nun (Deborah Kerr), cloistered in a remote convent in the Himalayas, who must battle elements both external (the punishing weather) and internal (temptations of the flesh over duty to the spirit). Also features stellar turns by England’s greatest actresses at the time: Flora Robson, Kathleen Byron and a young Jean Simmons. One of the most dazzling films ever made, bolstered by Oscar-winning cinematography from Jack Cardiff. Bonuses: New transfer, supervised by Cardiff, editor Thelma Schoonmaker Powell; Introduction by filmmaker Bernard Tavernier; Commentary by Powell and Martin Scorsese; Featurettes; Documentaries and interviews; Trailer. The Red Shoes, »
