The One Movie You Have To See This Summer – Inception

Memento, The Dark Knight, and now this.  OK, Christopher Nolan, you officially have yourself another fanboy!  Because Inception definitely brings the awesome!  I read somebody describe Nolan as doing a great job of introducing blockbuster elements into his films without sacrificing any of the film’s intelligence.  I think that’s a very good description of this film.  It has all the action, explosions, etc. that you expect to see in your typical Hollywood popcorn senseless fun flicks, but has a very clever story driving all the action.  The ending is one of those that will be discussed and debated all across the internet I’m sure.  This is one of those rare films that I am looking forward to seeing a second time to try to catch the stuff I missed on the first viewing!

I don’t want to give too much away, but here’s the basic premise of the film.  Corporations now have the technology to enter people’s subconscious when they are in a dream state.  Hired guns are used to take advantage of this technology to steal corporate secrets, which is called “extraction”.  But there is another idea, the idea that you can also plant an idea into the subconscious mind.  This is called “inception”, and if the protagonist can pull it off, he will get his life back.

If you haven’t watched this yet, then you need to go.  Meanwhile, I need to add Nolan’s other films to my Netflix list!
