Inception


Hands down one of the best Sci-Fi movies ever.
Incredible premise. Superb cast. Clever script. Mind-blowing visuals.
Fantastic score. Plenty to think about. And it’s just plain awesome.

“You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.”

(I’ll be posting a more in-depth review
of Inception on my movie blog Reel Quick.
There’s so much more to discuss…)

  1. I can see why you would like this movie. I don’t really like sci fi movies. I would
    watch the movie if you asked me to watch it with you. That’s because I love
    you, dear grandson.

  2. I agree with your write up. It is my favorite SciFi as well. I still can’t get my mind around all of it, though, and it really has lots of Biblical implications. One I thought of dealt with how we “hide our secrets” in our dreams. As I thought about that, it occurred to me that we do that with our sin. We do our best to hide our sin, but satan reaches into our “safe” and pulls it out to taunt us with it or threaten us with exposure. How freeing it is instead to go to God with a 1 John 1:9 heart and give our secret sin to Him to begin with. Then, we have nothing to hide because it’s “….as far as the east is from the west…” once we give it to God. So, for a Sci Fi movie, it sure has some thought provoking ideas that can be applied in our Chrisitan walk.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

    Science Fiction can be a very powerful tool indeed when it comes to illustrating great truths. Biblical truths (like the one you pointed out) abound in Inception, and I only wish there were more films like it. Intelligent Hollywood filmmakers like Christopher Nolan are pretty rare these days…

    I enjoyed going to see the film with you and your family – it made the viewing experience all the more enjoyable! Thanks!

    1. Inception was one of the most satisfying films I’ve ever had the pleasure of viewing – destined to become a classic, in my opinion.

      I know the “professional” critics would probably disagree, but I thought Inception was (on the whole) even better than The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan’s other acclaimed film.

  4. The Dark Knight was indeed an top-notch film, and still one of my all-time favorites. I didn’t enjoy Memento – by filmmaking standards, it was pretty amazing, but the foul language was gratuitous in the extreme. Haven’t seen The Prestige, but I hear it’s pretty good. I’ll have to check it out sometime.
