I just saw the theatrical trailer looks very intruiging and liking the cast might I add.

But the whole time I was watchung I kept thinking PAPRIKA!!!!

Paprika is an anime masterpeice by visionary director Satoshi KOn

Anyone else agree?

I haven't a clue about anime.

But your talkings of Paprika got me to thinking about...

Yes, upon entering this thread, I thought you were comparing a movie to a food spice.

Anime newbs not be knowing about Paprika. :P And I'm a movie novice for not knowing about Inception. Are there dream mind screws like the anime? lol

The two do seem relatively similar. Although, the Paprika soundtrack demolishes Inception.

I haven't seen Paprika other thanread its wiki. But I guess the 2 are somewhat similar

Just finished watching. I can CLEARLY see where someone could draw Paprika into this, but, i think the guy behind this movie might've just thought of the concept on his own. ....Maybe. >_>

The trailer definitely seems to go into an awfully large amount of depth...

Well eternal sunshine went along in the same direction, but inception looks more "far out"

Paprika seemed kinda weird to me..Inception has really interested me tho. Maybe because the its by Chris Nolan :P. I dont think they should be compared though.

At least he wasn't comparing sex to food spice. Or maybe I have my definitions mixed up?

#14 Posted by muller39 (14944 posts) -

I never have heard of Paprika. Inception looks amazing though.

I want to watch this simply because of Nolan, I don't care about some anime.

Now that you mention it, it does somewhat seem similar which really isn't a bad thing.

#19 Posted by Zaibach (13463 posts) -

Why are they using the same cinematography as the dark knight?

Zaibach

Maybe because The Dark Knight's cinematography was great..

Paprika is an awesome anime. If Inception has the same basic concept like Paprika, then it'll probably going to be awesome.

Doesn't really remind me of Paprika. They're both about dreams, but that's about it.
