This Time, the Dream is Real
Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, Inception is a complex sci-fi thriller that takes you around the globe and into the world of dreams. At the center of the action is ace extractor and international fugitive Dominic Cobb. He is given a chance to redeem himself and regain his life by taking on one final mission, but this time the tables are turned. Instead of stealing a dream, he has to implant one. A smart and original mystery movie, Inception will keep you in suspense from start to finish.
As of 2015, Inception is one of the top 50 highest grossing films of all time.
It took Christopher Nolan 10 years to write the screenplay for the movie.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt performed all but one of his own stunts during the fight scene in the spinning hallway.
The only characters in the film who call Cobb by his first name are his wife, Mal, and father-in-law, Miles.
The role of Arthur was originally intended for Heath Ledger before his untimely death.

Meet the Cast
Dominic Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio)
As super-thief and hunted criminal, Cobb earns his living by extracting ideas and secrets from deep in a person’s mind and selling them to competitors.
Ariadne (Ellen Page)
A graduate student from Paris, Ariadne is hired by Cobb to architect dreams and build virtual mazes for the dreamers’ subconscious to inhabit.
Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt)
Cobb’s closest friend and right-hand man, Arthur is the mission’s point man. He’s in charge of collecting facts and details about their intended victim.
Mal (Marion Cotillard)
Mal is Cobb’s deceased wife, and she appears only in his dream sequences. Will she help Cobb achieve his final mission or stand in his way?
Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in this sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the best there is at extraction: stealing valuable secrets inside the subconscious during the mind’s vulnerable dream state. His skill has made him a coveted player in industrial espionage but also has made him a fugitive and cost him dearly. Now he may get a second chance if he can do the impossible: inception, planting an idea rather than stealing one. If they succeed, Cobb and his team could pull off the perfect crime. But no planning or expertise can prepare them for a dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy only Cobb could have seen coming.
In terms of sheer originality, ambition and achievement, Inception is the movie of the summer, the movie of the year and the movie of our dreams --Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine
As engrossing and logic-resistant as the state of dreaming it seeks to replicate, Christopher Nolan's audacious new creation demands further study to fully absorb the multiple, simultaneous stories Nolan finagles into one narrative experience. --Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
This is a deeply felt work of art in the form of a big, brassy movie-movie. --Shawn Levy, Portland Oregonian

Hans Zimmer's score uses the song Édith Piaf made famous, Charles Dumont's "Non, je ne regrette rien," as its leitmotiv. Outstanding among the cast are Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the charming Tom Hardy, as well as Lukas Haas (as Nash). Haas is always a particularly arresting presence on-screen.
1.) Leonardo DiCaprio does a fantastic job as the main protagonist in the film.
2.) The 'dream world' dream within a dream moments and the theory of time slowing are fun mind puzzles to unravel.
3.) The action is well paced and suspenseful.
4.) The music score and settings all flow together well.
5.) The action is nothing to sneeze at, there's quite a bit of gun play and fist fights.
I hope you check this movie out if you haven't, it's a true gem!
Now to get into SPOILER territory. I believe Dom was dreaming at the end. Nobody was having to disconnect from the machine like they had previously. The kids hadn't changed from the last time he had seen them, nor had the weather or season outside. And, going back to my title, the grandmother (who seemed to be the main caregiver of the kids while Dom was on the run, Mom was dead, and Grandpa was working in Paris) was nowhere to be seen.
Christopher Nolan is an extremely talented director; one of my favorites I must say. Don't let bad reviews misguide you. They just misunderstand the director and his ambitions. If you need something more palatable, try his Batman series, The Dark Knight.
The acting is fantastic. The story is a great trip that really leaves you questioning what was real and what wasn't. (Sort of like The Matrix, but with less "bullet time" and crazy sunglasses)
This movie will tire you out just watching it trying to figure out what's going on.
The thing I appreciated most about this movie is that they never tried to explain the science behind the dream control machine. They just said "this is it, it works, accept it" rather than spending a half hour of the film showing how it works with some impossible explanation that made no sense. They just asked you to suspend disbelief for the length of the film and it works great!
As for the quality of the Blu Ray print, it's incredible. This film was made with a great combination of strong set design a limited (but well done) use of CGI. So the look of the film is fantastic and the Blu Ray print really picks it up masterfully.
