You've been living in a dream world
Put on your pajamas and grab a cup of warm milk, because Episode 37 of Remember When is about to take you into the world of dreams.
We kick off our show with our latest "Great Movie Jay Has Never Seen", discussing the 1980's camp film "Dreamscape". It's been a quarter of a century since the movie was released in theaters, and Dennis Quaid's hair has certainly improved since then. But whether or not Jay's going to be able to appreciate this piece of nostalgia after all this time is questionable. Listen in as he talks about the bad decision he made with the movie, as well as why he's not kicking himself over it.
Then we dive into the Dream Within A Dream, talking about Christopher Nolan's latest cinematic release, "Inception". Written and directed from the muse behind The Dark Knight and Memento, this film has critics raving and audiences walking out of their theaters in wonder. We sit and offer our opinions on the film, offer our opinion on the ending (and why its various interpretations help the film achieve its brilliance), and rave about the newfound appreciation we have for Tom Hardy. We also talk about what we think was lacking in the film, and how a second viewing should be mandatory for anyone seeing it.
Finally, we wrap up the show with some talk about our TV viewing habits of late, our thoughts on True Blood... and could a hulking be in the mix?
