I see what you mean, KMI. I didn't see Memento
until it came out on DVD, so I had forgotten about any hype surrounding the "gimmick". I saw that method of telling the story as a way to get a glimpse of what it might be to live in the mind of that lead character. But I can see why one would not appreciate it.
I enjoyed Inception
. It was a fun ride that also engaged my fascination with the mind and our dreams. There were points at which I wasn't exactly sure of what was going on but dreams are like that, also.
In response to what you said about the ending, shelle-
The Girl Who Played with Fire

is now here in the theater. I need to watch Dragon Tattoo
first, though. Finally received The Road
through NetFlix today, so I'll probably watch that tomorrow.
