NOOOOvember 2014: Oracle of Film’s Grand Opening

Good day and a very warm welcome to the kickoff of NOOOOvember 2014!!!! Unlike my last series, which celebrated movies we love, this series is all about movies we expected to love, only to be let down by the end of them. Lord knows we’ve all experienced that.

You can read the details of the Six Degrees of Separation Blogathon on Anna’s site, but you can also read about its origins over at My Filmviews where it all began. Continue reading

The awesome Mr. MovieRob recently sent out a request for reviews for his cool new series, Genre Grandeur. The series will hone in on the best of the best in a different genre each month, but the focus for March is thrillers. Naturally, I couldn’t resist writing up a little something about Inception.

 Number of Times Seen – Not totally sure. I know I saw it in theaters three times. All in all, this was my sixth or seventh viewing at the very least.

Brief Synopsis – “A skilled extractor is offered a chance to regain his old life as payment for a task considered to be impossible.” (from IMDb)

My Take On It – I said it after my first viewing and I’m still saying…
