Rico's Thirteen [# 2]

Directed by: Christopher Nolan

"Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange."

They say that an idea is the most resilient parasite. Once a seemingly brilliant idea gets into someone's head, it is near impossible to get rid of it. It takes a hold of you, you obsess over it, and you try to spread it to everyone you can. This is  Inception, where the dream is real and your mind is the scene of the crime.

Going into this movie, I remember feeling excited and giddy as a schoolboy because two of my favorites were finally teaming up: Leonardo DiCaprio and Christopher Nolan, both titans in the movie industry of today. But at the end of the day, I remember being absolutely stunned silent and speechless; realizing that what I had just seen might be the modern day epic of our generation and one of the best movies I have ever seen. 

I can go and on and on about what makes this movie click for me but I will spare you and only go for the bare essentials of it. Dreams are the realm of the impossible. Anything goes in our lunatic paradise that is the dreamworld. If one can harness the unlimited power of our dreams, then one would make one hell of a movie. That's exactly what Nolan and the cast and crew of Inception did, making for a fantastical film extravaganza. I've only see INCEPTION once but the impact it had on me was next to none in terms of being awestruck and utter amazement. (Although I am attending the midnight release of the Blu-Ray Version which comes out, on my freaking Birthday. It must be a sign) I really can not put to words how much I love this movie. Like literally, if I could get married to this movie I would in an instant. I'm sure most of you have seen this colossal epic, and if you haven't, well, it's only a matter of time before Cobb and his crew incept your mind into watching this. This a thinking man's movie and forcefully challenges the mind and heart in parts untouched before. Everything about this movie was just so good. Music, Acting, Direction, Cinematography, Design, everything...This is definitely an instant classic and will continue to challenge the minds of many, for many years to come.

  1. I want to see this movie so bad! I hear all this talk about INCEPTION and I can not wait until I finally see this movie. The only thing I am scared of is all the hype surrounding this movie. I am afraid that I might watch INCEPTION with too much expectation and may hold it to an impossible standard. Hopefully I will be able to watch this movie with a clean slate of the mind so I can see it for a stand alone entertaing show that will boggle my mind and "incept" my heart. This blog post makes me want to watch this movie even more and makes me look forward to when I finally witness what makes this movie such an epic.
