Entities & Paralysis | A Desk | Take The Interior?

Dream 1

This dream involved me being inside a building with various threats, including: a large / possibly obese entity in a Daredevil suit that looked somewhat like a smaller slightly more human red demon (it / he was not red though) from the anime TV show The Seven Deadly Sins, a heavy breathing entity that I could not see, and more.

I probably moved around the building trying to avoid the threats until I experienced, paralysis in the dream, maybe semi-sleep paralysis in the real world, or I felt my paralyzed body in the real world.

Basketball And Spaghetti And An Abandoned Amusement Park Of The Dying And Getting Poisoned And Trapped With Celebrities?

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was playing in a professional basketball game inside a gym in front of a crowd and probably cameras and announcers, maybe the NBA (National Basketball Association), and at some point I noticed some spaghetti on the basketball goal post so I tried to wipe it up with a wet dishcloth (dish rag).

I then noticed more spaghetti in several other places and it seemed to be negatively effecting / affecting my team, I told my coach who was a balding man with light-color skin, but we lost the game before we could properly complain about it to the referees or after we did but there was not enough time for anything to be done about it.

Our coach was angry and he was looking at video footage of our basketball match (game) on his mobile phone trying to look for signs of the spaghetti and of it negatively effecting / affecting our team so that he could complain to the NBA or whoever about it, and the next thing that I remember is the dream showing a video of a news report about an abandoned amusement park in The United Kingdom (the name of the city was said, but I can no remember it now; it possibly started with an R, but I can not remember) that used to be owned by an Eastern European country.

The abandoned amusement park still had a few amusement rides and buildings left (it was not that big), and people who were dying and people who planned on killing themselves were starting to live at the abandoned amusement park oddly so the news report was about how people were starting to live there and sort of have a community of people who were going to die soon.

After the video I was with my coach and a group of celebrities and a news crew who were arriving at this amusement park in The United Kingdom to visit it as the film crew interviewed people and recorded video and continued their news report about this place and the people there.

We flew there by airplane I guess, loaded up in several automobiles, and we drove and parked in a parking lot that somewhat reminded me of the shared parking lot of The D Junior High School and The KRH Elementary School in the city of D and we walked to the amusement park.

The group I rode with included my coach, the actress Carrie-Anne Moss, the actor Michael Keaton who seemed to be acting more like his character Bruce Wayne so maybe he was Bruce Wayne in this dream, and maybe the actor Edward Norton and / or someone else; and I remember us talking and mostly walking together as we toured the amusement park with the film crew and the other celebrities (I was a professional basketball player so I guess I was considered a celebrity too).

There were tents and things set up that some of the people were living in, and some people there were homeless.

There are various things that happened that I can not remember during our tour, someone there was giving us a tour, and as the film crew did their thing.

At some point our tour was about over or it was over so we went inside the largest building in the amusement park that was maybe 1 1/2 stories tall, I am not sure what we did, but I remember people smiling and having a good time as we were starting to leave but the doors closed and we got trapped inside.

The actor Edward Norton or another actor was smiling but then started to cough and react like he had been poisoned, and then he fell to the ground shaking and he lost consciousness.

The doors would not open and a distorted male voice started talking over a speaker system to us almost like something from a Saw movie, and the male voice told us that we were trapped inside the building and that maybe we had all been poisoned (something we ate and / or drunk at some point in the dream) and we had to play a game and maybe we could get the antidote for the poison if we played his game; and he said some other things that I can not remember, he was going to give us a break before the game starts, and then he stopped talking during our break.

Michael Keaton as maybe Bruce Wayne started trying to find a way to stop the poison and / or complete the game and / or escape before it even starts, and I remember him having me hold a microwave oven with the back facing me as he did something to it and maybe turned it on.

Carrie-Anne Moss and the rest of my group was near us not sure what to do, many of us started to feel a bit sit and cough a bit, and so we assumed that we did not have long before we ended up like Mr. Norton or whoever.

It seemed that the male voice wanted to punish us or something, only us celebrities were trapped in the building, and so he was targeting just us it seemed.

We were all at risk of dying it seemed, which is interesting, because this abandoned amusement park was now being used by people who were dying.

I probably said something to Mrs. Moss (who I probably talked to the most in the dream, except at this point when I was talking to Mr. Keaton / Mr. Wayne) about our plan to try to get out of this situation, but I woke up.

Memento (Film)

What is it?

The 2000 American neo-noir psychological thriller movie Memento by the director Christopher Nolan.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

A man is determined to find justice after the loss of a loved one, even though he is incapable of fully remembering the crime, in this offbeat thriller.

Leonard (Guy Pearce) is a man who is struggling to put his life back together after the brutal rape and murder of his wife.

But Leonard’s problems are different from those of most people in his situation; he was beaten severely by the same man who killed his wife.

The most significant manifestation of Leonard’s injuries is that his short-term memory has been destroyed; he is incapable of retaining any new information, and must resort to copious note-taking and Polaroid photographs in order to keep track of what happens to him over the course of a day (he’s even tattooed himself with a few crucial bits of information he can’t get along without).

Leonard retains awareness that his wife was brutally murdered, however, and he’s convinced that the culprit still walks the streets.

Leonard is obsessed with the notion of taking revenge against the man who has ruined his life, and he sets out to find him, getting help from Natalie (Carrie-Anne Moss), who appears to be a sympathetic barmaid, and Teddy (Joe Pantoliano), who claims to be Leonard’s friend, even though Leonard senses that he cannot be trusted.

Writer/director Christopher Nolan adapted Memento from a short story by his brother Jonathan Nolan.

What do I like about it and what would other people like about it?

I like the mystery that kept me focused on trying to figure out what was going on, the cleaver order of this movie, some of the acting, and the use of Anterograde Amnesia; and I think that other people will like that as well.

Final Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched this movie for the first time recently, I did not expect to like it, but it kept my attention as I tried to figure out what was going on.

I liked this movie more than I had expected, it was pretty good and was well directed, I like it when I go in expecting to not like a film but end up liking it more than I had expected; I would give this movie a 4 out of 5 or maybe even higher.
