No doubt about it, Christopher Nolan‘s Inception is one slick movie… as long as you don’t spend too much time quarter-pondering about what the frig is goings on, cause there’s a lot, but none of it really matters.  It thinks it’s purty darn smart and crafty, and others seem to think so too (#3 of all time? c’mon Eileen!), but we don’t think so.  It’s like Stutter Island (way to diversify Leo!), where you can enjoy and follow the logic for about an hour and then when the layers keep getting piled on and then peeled back, with rules being changed and added as it sees fit, it becomes a lil too big for its own britches.  Sure, the ending was a tad nifty, if a tad too predictable, but like this past season of Lost, once the switch is flipped and the flip is switched at the end, basically everything that came before it becomes null in void.  So why would Inception require a second viewing if (SPOILER) it’s all a dream, within 1934244 dreams divided by 13 subconscious unconscious confucius confusing fests?????!!!!

The real big mystery is why movies keep letting Ken Watanabe and Marion Cotillard speak in English instead of in their native tongues.  Can’t ever understand a friggin word they sayings, and in a movie where words are all we have to explain the visuals, it’s kinda of important to have the dialog be clear and crisp.  Speaking of the visuals, the folding buildings and the crumbling buildings on the beach and the Joseph Gordon-Levitt walks on walls stuff was totally wicked dope radness, but there wasn’t enuff of it!  We wants movies with 4 hours of non-stop building folding!!!  And the dreams weren’t nearly dreamy enuff, even though Tom Hardy is crazy dreamy (we didn’t love Bronson, but we loved him as Bronson)!  And another thought about Watanabe, if he’s the dude trying take down rival Cillian Murphy‘s energy company, then why would he be directly involved in the mission, cause Murphy would probably know what he looks like!!  But we guess it doesn’t matter when he has protective gunmen in his dreams, and why?  juss BECAUSE!!!  And instead of anyone being pinched to wake up from a dream, apparently you have to be gunned down cause only then will you be able to pass thru the 18th dream state of dreamrulesland!!! Whooopie!

Still, Inception is fun, and original, and it employed Tom Berenger AND Lukas Haas and anytime Haas is in the haaaas, so will we!

No Regrets: apparently the use of Edith Piaf’s ‘Non, je ne regrette rien’ had nothing to do with the casting of Cotillard, who won an Oscar for playing Rice Piaf, AND apparently one piece of the soundtrack is hactually a slowed down version of that song!

Verdictgo: it’s not a thinker like everyone thinks it is, nor is it a stinker so Jeepers Worth A Peepers

Inception is extracting itself currently at a theater near jews
