Inception

Reviewing this SciFi thriller seems a great way to cap off Geek Week here on the blog. Ann and I actually went out to the movies to see this one.. I will post a few great pics of the new AMC Theater we viewed it in later today. I really liked Inception.. Ann did too but not as much as I did.

The movie is all about dreams and a gadget that somehow enables high-tech-dream-geeks to enter other folks dreams.. I did say it was science fiction didn't I? Of course the dream technology is just a ruse to the real question of the movie - can one person with a plan corrupt and change the thinking of another through their dreams.

I thought that the movie was a non-stop action packed thrill ride with several pauses that helped us understand what was going on.. but not in a way that made the story about the geeky stuff.. just enough to help us from getting confused. I liked the ending and thought that it flowed well with the overall theme of the movie. I also liked the main character (played by Leo DiCaprio) and his battle with guilt and his desire for his life to be normal - who cannot relate to wanting some normalcy in your life?

On a scale of 10 I give this movie ★★★★★★★★.. you will agree if you are a geek.
