“Inception”  It is my understanding that Christopher Nolan took 10 years writing his screenplay for Inception!  I completely understand this because the movie is just brilliant on so many levels.  I’m not even sure on where to begin.

Leo (Cobb) is a thief who steals corporate secrets through the use of dream-sharing technology.  Leo and his team is given the impossible task of planting an idea into the mind of a dying CEO.

Did I lose you?

I must get this Question off my chest!  Was the entire thing a dream?

What was this movie even about? I will admit I didn’t fully understand it and that’s okay b/c 4 years later I can still blog about it.

All I understand is…”A Dream, within A Dream within A Dream within A Dream”…wait Is that right?

It’s #5 because:

1) The cast is unfreakin believable, Please see above!  Leo steals my heart again!!!

2) The story!  Dreams & Reality. Reality within dreams Dreams without reality.

3) The Cinematography is breath-taking  Not sure what I’m referring to?  Watch/Re-watch the Hallway scene!

4) Christopher Nolan!  “The Dark Knight” “Memento” are you kidding me!

5) The Roller Coaster Effect:  Christopher Nolan takes you on for the ride of your life!

My one complaint, but it’s a small one!  I dislike Ellen Page – Sorry Ellen The rest of the “Inception Cast” was above your pay grade.

So let me ask again!  Was it all a dream?  How do you explain “Inception?”

    I liked that you could follow the plot even though it was so complicated. You had to pay attention, but it could have been too confusing if he hadn’t been careful.

  4. I’m not usually one for endings that leave you hanging, but I loved this one. It’s a mystery that will never be solved… did the spinning top at the end waver or no? Does it even matter if it did? It seemed like a pretty good “reality” regardless. What do you think of it?

      That damn spining wheel! Did Cobb (Leo) finally get to go home? Was it a dream? Inception was brilliant! You bring up a great point though! Does it even matter? But can you imagine being stuck in a dream? (Well some dreams I wouldn’t mind to much)

      Nothing I enjoy more than when A movie ends and my friends and I stand in the parking lot and talk about it. What other movies would you like to see on my list? Also get ready for the next few posts.


  6. Glad I am not the only one who has left this movie feeling like I missed the point…LOL a dream in a dream in a dream is a perfect summary.
