I just have to say that ol’ Leo has certainly come a long way since Titanic. And he was worried that he would forever be seen as “Jack.” Hardly.
I am impressed with his work in Catch Me If You Can and The Departed. But Inception tops them all. And it’s not just Dicaprio that deserves credit. The entire cast for this movie was killer.
I don’t want to overdo how amazing I found the movie to be, because anytime people go on and on about how awesome a movie was, then I see it, I always feel a little let down. I just want to say this: PLEASE do yourself a favor and see this in a theater. Go see it NOW before someone tells you about it. You should definitely see it for yourself.
Tom and I purposely avoided seeing anything about it but the trailer that was played on TV. We saw it in the IMAX theater near our house with some friends on Saturday night. Our theater was packed. Not one person got up for any reason during the entire movie. No one’s phone rang. No one spoke. And when it ended, we all turned to look at one another and burst into conversation about the movie with anyone who was nearby. (You’ll have to watch it yourself to see why.)
And I now know at least one thing that will be on our Christmas wish-list.
Seriously. Go see this movie.
If you have seen Inception, I would LOVE to know your thoughts, but NOT IN THE COMMENTS (unless it’s really general and not about what happens in the movie) because I don’t want any spoilers for people who haven’t seen it. Feel free to email me your thoughts though! Or direct message me on Twitter.
ps- Check back tomorrow for the photo-manipulations of the pictures from this post. I can’t wait for all of you to see each others’ work!
