Theater Thursday: Inception

There is a fine line between loving this movie, and hating it. To determine which side you will fall on, you should ask yourself this simple question: Can I love a movie, even if I don't understand all of it? If you answered no, save your money. If you answered yes, then this is by far the best movie made this year. To follow your "yes" answer, you should click here and watch the trailer, and then see it as soon as possible.

3 reasons why this movie is awesome:
1. It was directed by Christopher Nolan, the director of The Dark Knight (i.e. fantastic chase scenes)
2. Some genius mind followed the tradition of having Leonardo Dicaprio start out in the water.
3. Brilliant cast including Joseph Gordon-Levitt (seriously, who doesn't love him after 500 Days of Summer?!), Ellen Page (nice to see her as a more serious character), and Michael Caine (it's a small role, but he brings so much to this film).

Favorite quotes:
"Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange."

"Quick, give me a kiss."
(she does, then looks around)
"Did that do anything?"
"No, but it was worth a shot."

That's it for Theater Thursday, hope you enjoy it :)

Such a good movie!

How'd you come up with the #2 reason??? O.o

Dark knight was by far not one of Christopher Nolan's best film.. even though it WAS amazing.. that's just how good he is..
Batman Begins was his best. Then The Prestige... THEN Dark Knight... all amazing movies though...
but with the installment of Inception into his resume, I would have to push Dark Knight to 4th and the Prestige to 3rd.

But the Christopher Nolan I can't wait for is the next Batman, as wel as (no, he's not direction OR producing :-/ but he wrote it) Superman, Man of Steel. Both scheduled to come out in 2012.

sorry, he didn't write it. He's the executive producer. He helped write the new Batman again. He's not the greatest writer, but his help this time isn't a chick luckily. (no offense, I just think superhero movies should be left to guys and romances for females... No prejudice!)
