Movie Review: Inception

( via )

No worries, I won't spoil anything.  I know there are like, 3 people out there who haven't seen it, yet. 

So, yeah.  Inception was getting good reviews from the get-go, made a ridiculous amount of money (over $100 million and it's only been out for 2 weeks) and is still in the #1 spot.  

Plot:  Go into dreams and extract information, blah blah, twist, surprise.  Google it.

I was so excited to see this because of my own fascination with dreams and what they mean and why we have them and, and, and...
Now keep in mind, this film is 2.5 hours long.  For the first maybe 1.5 hours I'm thinking to myself, "Yeah, this is good, but what's the big deal?"  Leo's hot, even Joseph Gordon Levitt --whom I used to find kind of annoying -- was pretty nice to look at.  Maybe it's because he doesn't talk much, but I digress. 
The last hour or so of the film I started to get more excited.  The ending blew me away.

Why I Liked Loved it:  They incorporated actual ideals about dreams that we believe.  The fact that dreams typically last minutes or seconds, but seem a lot longer when you dream them.  The fact that dreams make more sense when you're asleep and when you wake up and try to explain them you sound like a psycho.  This whole idea of a "kick" where when you feel like you're falling you wake up.  I loved all of that.

Ah, yes.  Inception.  See it.  Call me, I'll probably go again.
