I don't know, I just don't find a story about a bunch of adolescent college students fighting over an idea that stimulating.
As far as Inception's dialogue, it is difficult for it not to be cumbersome with the subject matter it was dealing with. There was a lot of ideas put into that film and sometimes the subject matter got kind of weighted down by these issues. That still doesn't take away, in my opinion, from rating the movie overall favorable. Every single movie ever made had flaws. Even such brilliant films as On The Waterfront, Goodfellas, 2001, Citizen Kane, etc. A couple of flaws in these movies doesn't change my opinion of how great they are. I feel the same way about Inception.
I'm not ready to compare any of this year's movies to those films. But I am curious to know, what did you find as the flaw with The Fighter
