Movie Review: Inception

Synopsis: A group of people that steal information from dreams, go in to plant one. (it's not that confusing, really)
Pros: Awesome.
Cons: I may have to watch it again.
Overview: It's not really that confusing of a movie that critics make it out to be. You understand the movie in the first viewing. But what's interesting (or maybe confusing to some) is the structured layer of the plot, as there become many things that happen within the context of the film at the same time. Thus, keeping your mind intrigued at it's depth.

In a Summer filled with big budget CGI fests, Christopher Nolan's Inception stands out as great Sci-fi action thriller, and you can easily understand why he's this generation's Auteur. Inception has big set pieces like any other Summer movie, but yet it doesn't get carried away in visual effects non-sense. In fact, I've read that most of the effects are done in camera.

I can also attest that the Academy will definitely be looking at this film come awards season, especially a nod for Original Screenplay. So, if you are tired of the same-ole, big budget, Hollywood movie, see Inception, it'll refresh your mind.
