I really can’t wait to meet you at college.
Thank you. You rule. This is making my life SO much better then it needs to be. Please do it more often.
I have no picture for this person but her name is Florence.
Florence is my mom’s coworker. She recently started with my mom and she’s one fabulous, amazing and kind woman. Florence really put an inspiration spark into my mom and I really love that. Florence really supports what she thinks is right instead of following the crowd like most people tend to do. I’m really glad to know a person like her. A strong, independent woman like herself.
My friend’s, Nic, movie review of “Inception.”
“Riddle me this, Batman. How do you know that you, the reader, are not dreaming right now? Mmm?
That’s what I thought.
Christopher Nolan (“Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight,” “Insomnia”) has shown himself once again to be among the highest quality of directors with his latest film, “Inception.” I won’t waste too much time trying to explain the plot here, but basically Dom Cobb (Leonardo Dicaprio) is a corporate espionage expert who works outside of the normal heist routine. Instead of assaulting buildings and vaults, Cobb assaults minds. Cobb and his team specialize in literally exploring the minds of their subjects and stealing secrets. However, this time Cobb is assigned to plant an idea. Those in his field widely consider planting ideas, or inception as it is called, to be impossible and almost suicide. But it can be done, and Cobb’s team plans to do it.
Cobb’s team consists of Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Eames (Tom Hardy), Yusuf (Dileep Rao), and, most notably, Ellen Page as Ariadne, the architect of the dreams in which the heists take place. Page is excellent here, breaking free of the “Juno” chains that have defined her career. Also brilliant is Ken Wantanabe as Cobb’s employer who comes along for the ride. Dicaprio himself does a good job as the scarred Cobb. Keep an eye out for Marion Cotillard too, in one of the year’s creepiest roles.
The excellent acting is not the only thing that makes this film. Christopher Nolan has in my opinion solidified himself as one of the premier filmmakers of the post-Speilberg/Scorsese era, and I look forward to future films from him. The editing in particular is beyond fantastic here, in Oscar-quality range. Look for a win by “Inception” at the Oscars in at least that category.
In conclusion, “Inception” is without a doubt one of the best films of the year, second only to “Toy Story 3” in my opinion due to pure sentimentality.
“Inception” gets three and a half stars out of a possible four, with bonus points for a zero-g fistfight.
For future reference: I use a four star system.
* — Horrible, only worth seeing if a you’ve got nothing better to do.
**— Decent, good for a few laughs or thrills. You won’t hate yourself for seeing it.
***—- Good, worth seeing (and your money).
****—- Great, likely to be one of the best movies you see all year. Recommended.”
