Inception








Director - Christopher Nolan

Genre - Action/Mystery/Sci-Fi/Thriller


Hmm...where do we begin? Incidentally, that is also how we felt when we watched this picture. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Cobb, a sort of dream mercenary for hire in this 'blink and you'll miss it' story. He is who you go to if you want to steal valuable information from someone. Our dreams are rife with very personal details about who we are if you don't already know. Yeah, we're talking about you, Ted... Chances are if you dream occasionally of putting on a pink, short dress with heels, you're probably not only a metrosexual. Written by Nolan himself, the main event of the script is how Cobb and his team not only infiltrate a person's dream, but are tasked to plant an 'idea' into his subconscious. In truth, we're still not done with this yet. It is the kind of film you can watch over and over again, discovering new and previously missed plot points. Intricately directed and created, Nolan is certainly in the running for the most extraordinary filmmaker we've ever come across. Eat this and die, 'Matrix'!

4.5 STARS!

Exciting, eh? I wanna watch this again in theaters. Hopefully next week xD and I didn't even give it as many -almost - stars as you.

It's not an easy film to watch. We had quite a hard time with it but it IS something that challenges your mind. It sorta, kinda feels like a celluloid Rubik's Cube. Even if you don't complete the puzzle you'll feel exhilarated all the same.

I've been very hyped for this movie anyways, but after reading your great review (and Ebert's) I really cannot wait to see this Friday!

Thank you for liking our blog. We have not seen it more than once but will try to watch it again to see whether our perceptions will change.
