Inception

Finally, the first great blockbuster of the summer. Inception has been extremely hyped and deserves every bit of it. Let me just say this, I really like Christopher Nolan. He's a great director. (The Dark Knight, The Prestige, Memento) This movie is up there with all of them, and passes them in most instances as well. Leo, he's solid as always, as he has been in some of my other favorite movies. [ Check out Blood Diamond, The Departed, or Shutter Island ] Every actor in this movie is and all the characters are interesting and entertaining.

The plot is complicated, so I'll just give you the basic premise. Leo is in the business of going into people's dreams and stealing information. Things get a little more crazy when he tries to pull off Inception, or planting an idea in a persons mind while they are sleeping. Let the complexity and mind boggling effects begin.

Really, it's an extremely well made movie, and it's exciting the whole time....even when you don't have a clue whats going on. The best part is, it doesn't feel like a copy of any other movie. It took the director about 10 years to write the thing. Honestly, I don't know how he wrote it, or how he got the actors to understand it and star in it. At any rate, GO see this movie. Oh, and don't worry if you miss the previews. They were all pretty terrible, including a new stinker from M. Night Shyamalan. Close your eyes during that one, otherwise you might try and kill yourself and miss out on this years best movie so far.

Yes, I absolutely loved this movie!! Great review Josh. Except for maybe one thing...First blockbuster. I'll have you know that Toy Story 3 has made nearly $400 million and it's posting a 99% on Rottentomatoes. So...? I'm just guessing you haven't seen it yet. :)

How much money it makes doesn't really matter (ala Transformers), but I have heard really good things about Toy Story. I have nothing against the movie, but I just don't watch kids movies.

Sorry Juji, I referenced the amount of money it's made just to qualify it as a "blockbuster". Blockbuster=a motion picture, novel, etc., esp. one lavishly produced, that has or is expected to have wide popular appeal or financial success (thanks dictionary.reference.com). I gave the tomatometer percentage to give it credibility as a good movie and not a Transformer or Twilight film. But hey, you really should go see it. It's pretty good. :)
Oh, and this is a review of Inception, so everyone really should see that cause it's awesome!!
