John Landis says Inception is "stylish" but unoriginal

John Landis has revealed that he thinks Inception wasn't original.

We're not sure how that's related to the movie he was promoting - Burke and Hare - but perhaps a journo asked him why the Pegg-starring grave-robbing chuckle-fest doesn't feature any city-folding dream sequences.

Landis said: "Interestingly enough Inception , which is wonderful, is not original. There have been a lot of movies like it; remember Dreamscape ? Oh, that's bad special effects but almost the same movie.

It's Dennis Quaid and Edward Albert is the president of the United States and they insert him into his dreams.

Don't misunderstand me, I think Christopher Nolan is a wonderful director it's just I don't think he is yet to make a movie other than Memento that I thought was really original. It's just very stylish."

We're not convinced. We know Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were based on comics, but their ultra-realistic take on a comic-book universe were pretty new to us.

What do you think? Is Landis right? Wrong? Tell us!
