No it doesn't, and I had the same discussion with someone else recently. But I think, there are films that no one sees that are great, and films that everyone sees that are crud. Then there are films that have just enough mainstream appeal to make money while making people think at the end. Inception deserves credit for walking that line.

Because the movie is too smart to simply be enjoyed for special effects only. I know that sounds very elitist, but maybe it is. This isn't "Transformers 2" where the only thing going for it (if that) is the visual effects. It's a smart Memento-like Christopher Nolan movie and IMHO, should be viewed/enjoyed/critiqued as much.

So what? If someone wants to see it just for some special effects, or if they think the special effects are the best part, why would you care how they view/enjoy it?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
