Oh don't think i was having a go. I was just speaking "out loud". :wink: I don't mind seeing the various theories. I just think it takes away from the film if you try to explain everything.

I watched it and wasnt as impressed the way Shutter Island did to me, overall i think the idea is ambitious and its overall good film. Or is it just because I watched a Pirated , Unclear version of the movie? wherein times i did not hear their conversations

Best movie of the year.

Chris Nolan is the man. I didn't think the concept was overly complicated, I kinda likened it to simply being an RPG game when you dream, with the ability to retract to another level (and back).

Special effects were fantastic without being overdone; cast did a great job (anyone else notice Chris Nolan used 3 of his Batman Begins actors?); incredibly well-shot.

The base idea of the script was just the missing piece on my mind...thank you Nolan!

Finally saw it last night!

A good movie, to be sure, but it would be easy to start tearing it to shreds via its plot holes! I enjoyed it though, so won't do so. But seriously - only a single purser/stewardess assigned to the First Class cabin on a SYD-LAX flight? Pfffft!

It's one of those movies that deserves a second viewing to fill in the gaps (or spot the errors!).

A fantastic ensemble cast, too - I don't usually like diCaprio but he was very watchable in this. I tend to feel similarly lukewarm about Cillian Murphy, too, but I guess it helped he had a relatively minor part (I had no idea he was in the movie before seeing it, I'd deliberately avoided all reviews and spoilers).

also finally saw it yesterday and it was truly amazing, but honestly mostly due to incredible Leo (my top fav male movie artist), i love his acting so much.

You do realize that the Asian guy owned the entire Airline company, right? So he could've easily made it so that there was only the one stewardess assigned to their cabin.

Yes, I realise that Murat. But it is something a frequent traveller in the pointy end of the plane would notice as soon as they boarded!

How many people were in that first class cabin anyway? It seemed like it was only Leo's crew and that rich dude (forgot his name). 1 stewardess should be just fine for 7/8 people imo.

And hey, it's a movie about planting/stealing idea's from someone's brain. Surely you can accept the fact that there's just 1 stewardess on the plane for the VIPs. :lol: :P

It was a commercial airliner, not the private jet he normally would take. It simply wouldn't happen for any cabin on a scheduled flight - let alone the first cabin - to be serviced by just a single person, even if it was the CSD.

But anyway - wake me up when it's all over :wink:

That stewardess was played by Chris Nolan's first cousin Miranda Nolan.

Inception is the one of the best movie of Leonardo. The director created this flick with brilliantly and used so many techniques. It difficult to explain it but the movie is really rocking.. :P

NOw I am looking forward to watch The Shadows movie which sound like a horror flick..

7 whole years for this to make it on to UK network TV. Nolan loves making us wait for it!

I seem to have revised my opinion of this since my first review - it's 10/10 on IMDb for me. Obviously a second viewing at home back in 2010/11(?) helped.
Though i still think the central inception itself could have been stronger. This would make a great Netflix series.

I watched it a few weeks ago again for the first time in years and agree, that the central inception storyline lacked somewhat. I still love the twist at the end, but I’ll never understand how people were actually confused over the storyline.

I love Leo though. Making him wait so long for an Oscar was criminal. He is so good at picking the right projects - it’s very rare he makes a bad film.
