"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling."

Film: Inception

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ellen Page

Synopsis: In a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion, a highly skilled thief is given a final chance at redemption which involves executing his toughest job till date, Inception.

This film blew my mind. It was thought provoking, visually appealing, and all the loose ends were tied up. Most suspenseful thrillers these days lack something real important - a complete story. So many details are half developed and left to float away in the oblivion that is unresolved movie endings. I can't stand that. It appears that the movie creators got sloppy. The creators of Inception were anything but sloppy. Details were developed, completely. It was by far the best thriller I have seen to date. I left the theater completely satisfied with only one question on my mind - was there a "made-you-look" (at about 7:29) when the credits ended?

**Husband and I had our anniversary celebration on Saturday. We saw this movie, since you know, isn't a proper celebration without a little Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Hopefully he is in another perfect film this time next year so we can continue the tradition. Keep up the good work, JGL!

I loved this movie, too. It kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next.

We see 1 movie every 6 months or so (really). As such, we try to pick a REALLY GOOD movie to maximize the time. I think "Inception" will be the one we see (but we'll probably wait for it to come out on DVD). :)
