A Capella Inception Trailer. Exactly what it says on the tin. Based on this Inception trailer. Note that if you somehow haven't seen Inception yet, this is a pretty spoilery trailer.

Can we stop saying this? Please?

Buried way down in that epic Inception thread from a month ago or so was a link to this 'secret' behind one of the soundtrack's main themes.

I giggled at the last BRWAUM.

Cute up until the last ten seconds, after which it becomes pants-stainingly hilarious.

Gawd, what an awful movie that was. (Not a bad trailer, though.)

The best summary of Inception I've seen anywhere is still this.

I started humming "Je, ne regrette rien" when I saw an Inception thread start up, but now I can't honestly say that.

This is not nearly as good as the DORA THE EXPLORER in INCEPTION

and just to even out the hate, Gawd-damn that movie was good!

The key to Metafilter BRWAUM is a very special kind of BRWAUM discourse. Let's try to keep this BRWAUM serious and thoughful!




BRWAUM

Meh. Needs more BRWAUM and less BRAAAAHMMMM.

Yeah, I agree. That is the more accurate spelling.

This trailer is unwatchable. Is the point to show how bad someone can redo the film's audio? I guess they succeeded in that....

papercake: “Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to share with us.”

You're welcome; it was my distinct pleasure. See, it's this kind of fantastic feedback and positive encouragement that gives me hope that a relatively drab commenter like myself can someday rise to meteoric heights.

the "BRWAUM"s were the best thing ever.

Oddly, watching the acapella version first makes the real version sound badly dubbed too.

I don't know when orchestrated music became Nine Inch Nails, but I approve of these developments.

There were a lot of things to like about Inception, but it seems like it wasted its subject matter. The idea of descending into progressively deeper dream states is good, but instead of each layer becoming more abstract, embarrassing, terrifying and sexual, we kept getting arbitrary video game levels. Put down the XBox Ellen Page, your dream architecture sucks dick.

On topic: This video is really funny, thanks for the link
On Inception: I agree with dgaicun - the "stacked climax" device was neat and all, but it could have been more than just a technique to ratchet up the suspense. Plus the overhead of maintaining four concurrent plotlines became pretty onerous near the end. The last hour of the movie went something like this:

1) Scene with Leo struggling to explain what's going on to Ellen Page / the audience.
2) Check in with level 2. Still placing charges
3) Check in with level 3. Still placing charges
4) Check in with level 4. Still falling off a bridge.
5) Back to 1.

That said, the acting was better than average and I'm happy to see studios experiment with story lines.

Or maybe Johannes Brahms.

You know, for kids.

I'm going to have to show this to my friends who are in a (formerly collegiate until they all got out of grad school) a capella group.

Why is the a capella version mirrored?

that's hilarious. Also i really love the VO - I can hardly believe that isn't Ellen Page.

no thread about acapella music is complete without a mention of Jud Jud, the band that was too straight-edge even for instruments

This final track on the Inception soundtrack alone is worth the price of an entire album. I just keep listening to it over and over.

Haha I hate acapella but it was so worth it for the dude doing Ellen Page's voice. I busted up giggling at "You mean like a work placement?"

Is there a missing HAMBURGER tag on this? Because all Zimmer's stuff sounds exactly the same to me. Christ, the themes from Gladiator and PoTC are note for note, practically identical. (I mean, they're both still great, but wtf Hans.)

At least it was a realistic movie. And it taught me some really useful things about dreaming. For one thing, I don't have to use an alarm clock any more - I just remember to set timed explosive charges in my dreams every time I fall asleep, taking into account the exact ratio of how much slower time passes depending on how many dream-levels in I'll be going. It makes waking up a lot more convenient.

Dude, just... lay off the engineered sedatives specifically designed to block out stimuli from all senses other than the sense of balance. Especially right before you go to bed.
