Despite being absent from two of the five board members lists Inception’s otherwise favourable placings gifted the film its fourth and most important win of this online ceremony. The film is a visual marvel and I am glad that it inflamed the imagination of so many fans. For me I struggled to connect with the film emotionally and as such I could only appreciate Inception from a technical perspective. Anyway this isn’t a platform for me to bring a negative vibe to this category so instead I suggest three cheers for our winner – the ambitious, thinking man’s blockbuster extravaganza – INCEPTION!
