Movie Time! 'Inception'

I promised you a review today or tomorrow, and I’m really worried that I’m going to forget to do it altogether if I don’t do it now.

Today, I saw ‘Inception.’ It’s really hard for me to explain without giving tons of the movie away, so I looked up a description online. Here you go:

“Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.” –Warner Bros. Pictures.

This is the most amazing movie I have ever seen. I say that for a lot of movies, but I hadn’t seen this movie at the time.

It has a stellar cast, an incredible story-line with twists everywhere you turn… my brain hurt when I came out of the movie theater. It wasn’t just that transition from a dark environment to a light one. It was so thought-provoking and you really had to pay attention. The guys that were close by us probably had no idea what was going on because they were on their phones texting away as well as constantly shaking their popcorn. You really had to pay attention and keep your eyes open. Especially since the whole cast was going to different levels of the Dreamscape (I’m not quite sure what you would call it), you had to keep track of what was reality and what level they were on (I believe they went to a total of four, though they were initially shooting for three).

Inception is just reaching to more than two levels of the Dreamscape. In other words, a dream inside of a dream inside of a dream.

It’s pretty wicked cool and it’s definitely going on my Christmas/Birthday wish list. To further understand everything, you’re going to need to see it. It’s rated PG-13 for violence (I’m not sure if there was anything else).

I would not recommend watching this movie if you really don’t want to think.

Otherwise… go to it! Go to it!!!

Thanks for reading!

This trailer really makes me want to learn cello.
And this movie inspires me to study psychology. The human mind is such an incredible thing… the things it can do!
