Title: new movie starts with a spinning top......"Inception"
Post by: the Earl of Whirl on January 01, 2010, 11:13:26 AM
I went to the movies with my wife on New Year's Eve.  When they went through the previews I was stunned to see one start with a spinning top.....a finger spinner!  The movie is "Inception" and it looks like it is coming out in July of 2010.  I checked a trailer out on the internet about it.  It was the same one from the theater and there, again, was that spinning top!

Di Caprio does tops, it seems:

A tiny top, though:

Nice that they think the top is symbolic/suggestive enough to select the scene for the trailer of a major scifi/action movie.

The new trailer, from which I lifted the image, is better. You can find it here:

www.filmofilia.com/2009/12/28/inception-trailer/ (http://www.filmofilia.com/2009/12/28/inception-trailer/)

Any guesses what kind of "room" is DiCaprio in when he spins the top?

By the way, who was the guy talking in that blog?  Sounds like someone who threw tops.

I probably tried to imprint this one on my memory bank so I did not make the same mistake if I came across such a restroom  :P  Actually, that is the same entry (go a couple of pages further) that described the spintop stigmata. It was probably the first time I read about a modern yo-yo/spintop contest.

Yes, Glasseye always seemed to be interested in tops, although I am not sure how much he throws. He posted Felix famous spintop video.

Post by: SpinQueen on July 20, 2010, 12:51:31 AM
I saw it as a double feature along with Despicable Me, at the drive inn on Saturday night.  The Top represents a totem that each member of the (dream team) carries to let him or her know when they are in their own reality or dream.  Each member carries their own personal totem (some small object that only they know about) so they can tell the difference between their reality and a dream (especially someone else's dream who might be trying to influence or extract info from them).  It's complicated and difficult to explain, so you should really see the film for yourself.

I give it two thumbs up! :)  Also, Despicable Me was super cute  ;D ;D

That's what I call entrepreneurship! I hope you sell some.
I see you uploaded the file July 19th, so I imagine you don't have your own copy, yet.
It is nice that one can select from all those materials, but it can get really expensive for glass, stainless steel and even gold plated!

By the way, welcome! Are you a top player?

I found another interesting top for sale on that site. It is called Alexandras top and it is a puzzle:

nope, not a top player.  i just joined to post the link =/  i figured some of you here might be interested.

I'd like to get a lot more made on a cnc lathe, but we'll see.  I've contacted a few machine shops.  there is a large market for movie props, and i'm involved in that.  I thought maybe some people here would be interested in having it, so i came to share.

I've sold a couple.  since the process at shapeways isn't super cheap, there is not much profit, but I dont have to put out any money up front, so its easy

I imagine the cost is proportional to the volume of the build, so a regular size top will have a hefty price. But it you are certain what your ideal top should look like, it may be worth making it . . . gold plated!  :o

Title: Re: new movie starts with a spinning top......"Inception"
Post by: Greaves504 on August 07, 2010, 10:54:38 AM
you know what's scary about that movie? Most of the things (except maybe going into another person's dream via device) is possible. The mind is a very complex structure and we humans use less than 10 percent of it. There has been many studies on this subject, not on dreams, but the ability to delve into one's mind so much that reality becomes blurred. I've been researching hypnosis for a number of years and hope to get a certification in Ultra Depth Hypnosis. There's technically about four types of hypnosis so far, stage, Ericksonian, NeuroLinguisticProgramming, and Ultra Depth. The reason there are laws against messing with someone's head in such a fashion, is because it is completely possible to turn someone into a vegetable and lock them inside their own mind so to speak. The founder of the Ultra Depth method, while still developing the technique, thought he put a little girl into a coma by accident when she wouldn't wake up. He kept saying to open her eyes at the count of three but she never did. Finally right before he called the ambulance, she woke up and he asked her why she didn't open her eyes when he said. Her response was that she did. The hypnosis caused her to become in such a state that time was warped in her mind. What seemed like a split second was really well over an hour. 

Another interesting point is that after he perfected the technique, a doctor friend got in a horrible motorcycle accident which completely ruined his facial structure and was thought never to move again. After putting him under, his recovery was so unprecedented they believed it was a miracle. His face, which was before mishapen had completely healed with almost no trace of slamming head first into pavement. he walked out of there a couple months or so later.

Ericksonian seems to deal more with control, NLP deals with persuasion, and Ultra Depth with healing. I think my future wife would appreciate not feeling any pain during childbirth wouldn't u? You get certified for painless child birth once you pass the course.

Sorry if this is too long or too off subject, I just figured you guys might want to know a little more about the complexity of the human mind and its ability to do unbelievable things.

Post by: Greaves504 on August 07, 2010, 08:00:54 PM
haha my bad Neff. I didn't mean to freak anyone out or anything. Don't worry, there's no devil work in play. It's just focusing your mind to control your body at the most basic level of function. Kinda like breathing. When we're born we don't breathe. That's why the doctor has to slap our bottoms to get us to cry and take our first breaths. The body then registers it as a constant need and the lungs take on an the involuntary movement of breathing. It's because the mind deems it necessary for you to live so it takes over so you don't have to constantly think about breathing. The only catch is you need to tell someone what it is that you want so the practitioner can go in and input the suggestion so far into your mind that your body does it on its own without realizing it or having to even think about it yourself. haha, i just realized in a weird sorta way it kinda is like inception. But you don't need a device.  ;)

I checked out ebay this morning and found 72 listings for "Inception" tops priced from $0.99 to an astounding $8,500.00!  Can you guess which is which from these photos?  Visit ebay to find out.

Post by: ta0 on September 17, 2010, 10:41:12 AM
I had to check what the pitch (spin  :P ) could be to sell a little stainless steel top for $8,500.  ??? Was it the actual top in the movie? It turns out the auction is for 1000 pieces.  Somewhat of a disappointment, but it makes more sense. Still, if you are offering a $8.5k item you should post at least a decent photo, I would say.

Now there is an auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/Inception-totem-all-4-totems-top-brass-bishop-die-chip-/120620197043) for the 4 totems on the movie: steel inception top, brass bishop (chess), poker chip and die. They should cost less than $15 in my opinion, but it has 24 bids and is currently at over $150!

There is a take off (spin off?) on Inception in host Amy Poehler's opening bit.  The top spinning scene is around 12:30.  Just for the record, they must have gotten new writers or something because the show was one of the best I've seen in the past several years!

it's like the tv series "Lost" you know the island etc ....

a lot of entertaining action, very little content, nothing like reading P K Dick or Theodore Sturgeon or Neal Stephenson (snow crash for axample on the same theme)

read this

I finally saw Inception. I liked it. Perhaps there was too much shooting for my taste. But the plot stayed pretty consistent among the many twists and levels of logical complexity and made me keep the attention throughout the whole 2:30 hours.  I would say it is a great "spinning top" movie.

When we came back home I told my wife we needed to spin a finger top and verify we were not dreaming (inside a dream the Inception top does not stop.) She was not very enthusiastic but agreed. Of course, the top I chose was the ultra long-spin Quark: ". . . Is it going to stop???"   ;)

Interestingly enough, I have not seen the movie.  I started this thread and have not seen the movie.  Go figure.  I  keep hearing how intense it is and how it is a science fiction flick.  Neither one of these things interests me.  I already have too many nightmares about real life as a pastor.

Maybe I will see it when it comes out on DVD and I can watch bits and pieces of it so I can control the intensity?

hi all

this morning I arrived at school and found a copy of the fanzine the students publish once in a while

what do I see ? a spinning top on the cover page!!

it was in fact going with a very brainy article about dreams,pre-lucid dreams etc... the spintop  which keeps spinning, being in the movie, a "test of reality"

a small input but it did make my day ;D

Shock!  Inception is in the news again.  The USA Today article has this headline..."What Mom Thinks of Inception".  The small article is in their top picks section (web to watch) and it has a picture with the following caption "There's a whole new take on the new sci-fi thriller".

Here is the article.  "Christopher Nolan's Inception made more than $290 million at the box office, but Joe Nicolosi's 66 year old mother doesn't get the hype.  Nicolosi watched the multiple reality thriller with his mother and recorded her reactions.  Let's hope she likes Nolan's upcoming movie Interstellar a little more."

Probably the only reason they included a spintop in the promo kit is the movie title Topsy Turvy, but it looks like a very good deal at that price for people who collect both spinning tops and movie stuff . . . if there are any.

His mom is tough.  And, sadly, she does not even mention the top and its spinning!!!

Nice save to keep this top spinning related.  I have never heard of the movie Topsy Turvy.

On the related youtube videos to one posted by Dazzling Dave, there was a Google talk by Kyle Johnson who wrote a book titled: "Inception and Philosophy: Because It's Never Just a Dream". I am not one of those who likes to over-analyze movies, but it was fun to listen while I was doing something else (warning it's 43 minutes long).

He claims it should have won the Oscar as best picture and the reason it didn't was that it went over the top of the heads of voters or the Academy. He also claims that the main character is dreaming at the end.

On thing I found out, for example, is that a number repeats in many places. Lots of hidden stuff like that.

4 1/2 years later, many are agreeing with Kyle Johnson.  There was an article in USA Today newspaper that listed Inception as one of the top thriller movies of the decade.  That got me to looking around about it on the internet and I found it listed as a top movie of the decade on several lists.  But the shocker was IMDB's list.  They put it as THE BEST movie of the decade (with the Joker not far behind).

When I dream about tops, they still fall down. So no help there.

But if I look down and and discover that I forgot my pants, the odds that it's just a dream are still a good 80%.
