    Inception (*Minor Spoiler*)

    Two reasons to see this movie:
    1. It is fantastic. The best movie of the year.
    2. It demonstrates the supreme effectiveness of Brazillian Jiu Jitsu in a zero gravity environment. You heard me: BJJ in 0G. Joseph Gordon-Levitt pulls guard and chokes out his assailant.*
    That is all.

    *I don't know the name of the choke. Person A chokes person B by constricting B's left carotid with B's right forearm and his right carotid with A's right forearm. B's right arm makes a V-shape on his chest and A's left arm curls around the back of B's head and grasps B's hand pulling it to A's left. A's right arm is inserted under and into the V to make contact with the neck.

    I thought the movie stank, though I did like the choke, and indeed I hope the people in charge of rebooting the Spider-Man franchise took notes during the whole hallway fight.

    With this mornings sobriety I don't like it as much (it starts slow, aspects are a bit unimaginative, and I'm not sure the plot fully makes sense), although I still think the main heist sequence is great.

    Zero gravity fighting! I wonder how this would look in reality.

    Is it really worth watching that whole movie?

    The choke you describe sounds like an arm triangle to me.

    Blame my crappy description: I think it was a scarf choke from full guard.

    However, I was really high.

    I thought the film was absolutely fantastic. It's a bit high concept, like Momento was, but once you get past the premise, the whole thing is amazing. It is a bit mediocre leading up to the meat of the plot, but once it gets there the movie takes a HOLY **** turn.

    CoffeeFan had that choke in his avatar before.
