Inception – Just go see it (again).
August 27, 2010
Inception (2010) a review -> Recommendation by Isaac.
“Dreams feel real while we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.”
Of all the movies ever made, Inception caused our team the most perseveration. Who should review it? What should we say? Would this review do the film justice, or just blather on about how clever and pretty it is? – Each dialog concluded with a proverbial foot in mouth; “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”
Being the bravest and most socially-maladjusted member of the group, I decided to speak up. I can’t let a great movie like Inception go by without saying something. My statement?
“Just go see it.”
Seriously, you’ve just gotta see it. Inception is just about the most ambitious movie ever made. Director Christopher Nolan created a cinematic masterpiece here, using the film medium with a surgical precision unparalleled in our society of Scary Movie sequels. It’s casting, acting, directing, pacing, action, cinematography, music, and storyline are all top notch. Inception has a very complex plot, but its executed with such masterful storytelling that I was never lost. (Note that I said ‘lost’. I was often perplexed and confused, but never lost.) Nolan can hold the audience on the edge of their seat for prolonged amounts of time, (as proven in The Dark Knight), and he does so again here. Don’t check your brain at the ticket window for this one.
And for the love of all that is artistic, turn off your cell phone! If you’ve seen a twitter update that says something to this effect: “Inception is boring and confusing”, don’t believe them. They were probably texting this update while playing Plants vs. Zombies during the plot exposition. Our culture has become obsessed with multitasking, and Christopher Nolan refuses to pander to the brain dead audience. So please, put away the phone. Don’t even slip out to use the bathroom. Plan on seeing Inception completely dehydrated so you won’t miss one minute of its tasty goodness.
…. there I go, blabbering on about how great the movie is. Forgive me.
Either you’ve seen Inception already, or you need to catch it before it leaves theaters. Don’t see Predators again, put off The Expendables or Piranha 3D, its time to use your brain in a movie. – Seen it already? Hit up that sketchy dollar theater and see it again. It may be the best movie you see until “Batman 3”. (p.s. if you’re still confused about the plot, this is a helpful diagram to look at: huge spoiler alert).
