Today, I went and saw the movie “Inception”, another film that I was looking forward to see for a long time. It is finally here, so I went and saw it. Before the movie, I did a little fun shopping for myself. Just got a couple of books from Barnes & Noble and a thing of Itunes cards to download albums with, that was about it. I didn’t buy any video games or DVD’s ’cause I didn’t see anything I wanted. When I buy videogames, I don’t just buy random games like a lot of video gamers do. I only buy a video game if there is something coming out that I really want ’cause PS3 games are pricey, I wanna make ’em worth it. Now on with my review…
Plot/synopsis: This is a heist film where Leonardo Dicaprio plays a father who is a thief, his name is Dom Cobb. He is an expert thief where he steal things that are valuable secrets. So what is Dom’s secret in committing these crimes successfully? He does them in dreams. Cobb and his men take control of the dream world to commit these robberies. There are a few rules in the Dream World, if someone is hurt in the dream world, they will experience pain in real life. If someone dies, they will be forced to wake up. Dom, was offered a heist job of “Inception” by a man named Saito, which he accepts, in order to get back to his two children. What “Inception” means it’s the implantation of a thought within a person’s mind. Ariadne (Ellen Page’s character) teams up with him as a guide to help what is haunting him. Does Dom successfully get the “Inception” job done in dreams? You will have to see the film to find out.
As I have predicted a long time ago, this film was very impressive. Very very very good, film. Christopher Nolan is such an amazing storyteller. Honestly, I LOVE his work more outside of Batman. You know what? I’m actually glad he was chosen to do Batman, because doing Batman indeed helped him make better movies other than, Batman. Even though “Inception” wasn’t a Batman movie, it sure did felt like one. It felt like a comic book movie even though this is an original piece of work. Chris Nolan has such an amazing imagination when it comes to writing. You gotta wonder, what goes on in that man’s head when he comes up with these crazy stories.
Yes, “Inception” is a big time special effects movie. Lot of CGI throughout the entire movie pretty much, but it makes sense. How else are they going to do that stuff? Ya know? I thought it was a perfect movie all around. No complaints here. Direction was excellent. Writing was excellent. The acting by the cast was just phenomenal. The special effects and the sound was a blast. It was action packed. It almost felt like a James Bond/Jason Bourne movie on acid. Hans Zimmer’s score for the film was amazing as well.
Most peolpe hate Leo Dicaprio, but I respect him and his talent. He’s not my absolute favorite either, but you can’t deny, this guy has got a lot of talent. His acting in this film was actually very good as well. Leo needs to quit doing these girly drama flicks and keep doing dark movies. He’s good at it. I really loved him in “Shutter Island”, and he was so good in this movie too.
Uh oh, do I have this feeling that Leo Dicaprio could get a serious role in “Batman: The Dark Knight 3”??? If the Riddler is picked as a villain, could Leo be the Riddler? Don’t be surprised. Christopher Nolan seems to have a fetish of working with actors that he already worked with in the past. So you bet your ass, Leo will get a role for the next Batman flick. Maybe Leo won’t get a villain role, but maybe a different character. Christopher Nolan is one of my top 5 favorite directors. I love all the work he has done. My favorite movie, “Memento” and “Insomnia” were both really good. Respect his work other than Batman please. Chris can’t do Batman his whole life, he’ll get bored with it. He needs to do different things like most film makers.
I look forward to seeing, “The Expendables” in August, which is my next movie I plan to see.
Score for “Inception” = **** (4 stars as in “Excellent”)
