Inception "Dream is a dangerous business"

oh boy this might be a long one guys...

So I watched Inception last night with Mein and Acap... and it was totally AWSM! mind blowing.. mind boggling..

Of all the movie I had watched with the theme dream or memory.. this has yet to be the most exiting.. If we're talking about story-wise.. it's superb... most of the time I was watching.. It made me think.. I seriously love movies that will lead me to think... There were never a slow moment in the plot.. everything just run smooth... the last 1 hour was very chaotic and full of suspense.. but you will never get too bored of lost in the movie.. some movies try to create so much suspense until you get lost.. but no.. Inception was great.. Christopher Nolan to me is an amazing director... after Dark Knight and The Prestige.. Inception really set his bar high in the sky... The way he translate this idea onto the big screen in pure genius! Another thing about this film is that since the theme is "dream", there's no limitation and no logical argument is valid.. all the rules and prohibition are not based on stupid excuses but very reasonable and beliavable.. After the movie.. Acap and I was like thinking how the hell the screenwriting was made.. given that we once took a screenwriting class and I have to tell you.. I'm already spooked with the idea of coming with a good storyline..

Besides that... Leonardo DiCaprio never seems to let me down... Mein and I were on the same page.. that he was born to act... He really had me at the part where his wife killed herself *oops spoiler!*.. his performance was convincing.. as always... But this is just not about Mr DiCaprio.. the line of cast was simply the best that the industry could offer.. Joseph Gordon-Levitt from 500 Days of Summer.. Ellen Page from Juno, Ken Watanabe from The Last Samurai along side Tom Hardy, Tom Berlenger, Cillian Murphy, Marion Cotillard and Michael Caine.. Things can't get any better than this... kudos to the great line of cast.

VFX-wise? top notch I have to say.. I know I'm still learning.. but damn all the scene was cool.. movies like this really define the era of HD and blu ray... of all the vfx loaded scene.. I have to say the part that I like the most is when Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) was fighting the sub-consciences in the hotel hallway that is constantly turning upside down due to the van which was rolling towars the river bank on the 1st level dream.. hahaha.. confuse much?

I told you this was gonna be a long one.. I urge you guys to see the movie!!! I'm going for my 2nd encounter with Inception this week again.. I hope so...

P.S: while you were reading this post.. are you aware that you are actually in a dream..  don't believe me? Do you remember how you got here? hahahaha... after you've seen the movie, then you shall understand what the hell am I talking about.. *laughs*
