Inception

Damn, Nolan. You have yet to disappoint me.

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a thief who is an expert in stealing secrets from a person's subconscious. The job has put a strain on his personal life, but his final job -- where he plants an idea rather than steal it -- may be a redeeming moment.

I got two words to describe Inception: HOLY SHIT. This blew me away. Everything works together perfectly: the acting, the story, the visual effects, the music, EVERYTHING. This beat my expectations by a mile. And the fact I saw it in IMAX (which nearly made my head explode from the sheer epicness) made it more astonishing. The originality of the story saves us from a summer of sequels, remakes and just downright bad movies. And yes, I'm aware a majority of this review makes me sound like a fangirl.

My Rating: *****

  1. Freakin amazing!! I loved almost every single second of this!! Nolan is going to be considered as one of the best directors of all-time now, and I will stand by and say, yes, I have to also agree. Check out my review here: http://dtmmr.wordpress.com/2010/07/19/inception-2010/

  2. Indeed a very good summer blockbuster. I will see it a second time in a week or two to see if it holds up to multiple viewing, a staple of most Nolan movie.

  4. I was suitably blown away myself. Part of me wonders if I missed out on the communal experience of this big release by seeing it in a half-empty theatre.

    (Had the day off on 7/16, so I caught an 11:30am show)
