Movie Review: Inception



There have been times in my (recent) adult life where I repute today’s movie era. There has been nothing of interest, well-thought, or original material for quite some time. I had nearly lost faith in the business altogether, until I saw Inception. As I write this, I have no words to portray the awesomeness of those creators and actors. Each and every scene – be it acting, originality, or special effects – my jaw was dropped in awe-inspiring perfection.

If you have not seen it yet, GO SEE IT! Here’s twenty internet dollars, take a friend.

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. Source

A few friends of mine watched Inception when it first came out and called/texted me immediately, demanding I see it. After watching a good film, you tell your close friends, ones that you know will love it. I was the first person that came to there minds, knowing I would love it. Generally, I scoff at mass persuasion, waiting a year or two until I watch massive popular movies. I’m glad I didn’t wait. As I sat in the lux level at my local theatre – VIP baby, that’s how I roll – my eyes never left the screen, ever. My wife had apparently bought three beers, nachos, and paid the bill. I had no idea the waiter even showed. Of those friends who recommended it to me, they told me that “it is one of those movies you have to pay attention to.” I agree, but I was so entranced, I didn’t have time to think “oh, did I miss something here?” I paid attention, sure, but I was at the writers and actors mercy.

Finally, after years of giving up on movies, I can safely say that Inception revived them. I read a lot of books, and those of you who read, know what I’m talking about. You put so much time into a book, working your mind, (if it’s good) struggling, if not completely lost only to have all the strings of yarn wound back into a tight nit ball.

I will fly to the local Blockbuster on the DVD release date and watch this several times over. I write, or I like to call it, and if I ever need inspiration, Inception will be sleeping, waiting to turn those gears in my head and rejoice in originality.

Here are a few links for Inception. (Obvious spoilers)
