Setting aside the general weakness of the "if you don't like it don't watch it" defense, all the people gushing about this movie has sort of made it impossible to not go see it. Going by the comments in this thread, you'd think Nolan had invented a completely new system of filmmaking that will transform the fundamental experience of cinema and eventually lead to the second coming of Jesus. If you're a lover of film, all the gushing has sort of forced you see it, just to find out what all the fuss is about.
That's one of the reasons I saw it. That, and the fact that the previews were intriguing without telling me a god damn thing about the movie. So many previews these days give away way too much information. I had seen several previews for Inception, but I honestly had no idea what it was about until I got into the theater.
