    I'm not a movie person, but the trailers for this movie have caught my attention. Obviously it is all CGI, but still the effects look amazing.

    Anyone planning on seeing this? Heard any reviews?

    The reviews have been exceptional.....this is the must see movie of the summer.
    I'm looking forward to seeing it, the bad thing for me if it has Dicraprio in it, I just don't like him. Still going though.

    I really like Ellen Page, but I doubt her role in Inception will be much like Juno.

    Looks like a great film, and with the exception of The Dark Knight I am a big fan of the director, Christopher Nolan. And I understand that most people liked The Dark Knight but I thought it was an hour too long.

    PLEASE don't see this movie if all you care about is special effects:

    For that Nolan fan above who doesn't like The Dark Knight, looks this movie harkens back to The Following/Memento, only with a big-budget.

    I loved Memento. Excellent movie that few people know about.

    Memento, The Prestige, and Insomnia were all excellent and far superior to The Dark Knight simply by not having a superhero in them.

    If you haven't seen Nolan's first film, Following, you are missing out on a rare treat. If you think nobody has ever heard of Memento, nobody x 10 has heard of Following, but it's really good. You can really see then Nolan was going to be very good.

    I saw Joseph Gordon-Levitt one of the stars of this movie on the View this morning. According to him it was not CGI, but a special set that was use for the the effects seen in this film. I also am looking forward to this film.

    I watched over the weekend.

    The music was great. My friend saw it at the IMAX and she said it was a great immersive experience.

    IMHO, the reviews are over inflating it but it was very good and entertaining. 4 out of 5 stars.

    My only complaint was the ending. I thought it was contrived. It was there just to mess with the audience. I didn't mind the message of the ending, I just didn't like how it was done.

    Because there aren't that many of them and you see all the good ones in the trailer.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I've been telling the Mrs that was the case based on similar reviews...

    I don't have the time for a full review BTW, but I'll say this: This was a thoughtful movie full of great actors and far more symbolism than it's possible to get with one viewing. Even the characters' names mean something. I was a little disappointed with the lack of CGI as I was expecting something more "dreamlike" and that was explained away with "you should make dreams as realistic as possible or the subconscious will reject them." Poppycock, say I. But whatever.

    The ending will get you talking, and that's saying a lot since it's possible to guess it about halfway through the film.

    Funny how different people take a film. My wife and I walked out after 25 minutes and got our $22 ticket fee back. To me, I wish they had developed the characters even a little before the action started - I'm a smart guy (magna cum laude), but had no idea what was going on.

    I saw "Inception" last week, and it's a shame you didn't stay on. It takes quite a while for the story to develop. To be sure, it was difficult to follow, not really knowing at any given time if you were immersed in DiCaprio's dream or someone else's, or if it was a dream within a dream. I think it would actually be worth seeing again, knowing how it all fit together. It's a tense drama definitely worth seeing.

    It's phenomenal and it's not difficult to understand like many people say it is. It's ranked as the third best movie of all time by imdb for a reason.

    Sounds like a perfect BluRay purchase. I'll definitely give it another shot.
