Does inception live up to my expectation?
The answer is yes yes and yes!

I’m going to compare it to my number 1 sci-fi movie of all time, The Matrix. Inception has the same twisted idea as the matrix. Inception has amazing effect just like the matrix. Inception is as mind blowing as the matrix. So my earlier expectation about will inception be the movie that can sit side by side with the matrix (Coz I’ve been searching for that kind of movie for the past 11years) Well, i can safely say that inception worth a place next to the matrix ๐Ÿ™‚

Although the basic idea of inception is the same with the matrix, which is about the dream world…But the whole idea is totally different.

Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the best extractor, a person who can come into someone’s dream and steal their deepest thought. His new job is to do an inception on the heir of a very wealthy company, Fischer (Cillian Murphy). He assembles a great team consist of 5 people, Arthur, Yusuf, Aemes (Tom Hardy), Ariadne (Ellen Page)and Saito (Ken Watanabe), who is also the one that ask Cobb to do the job.

What is inception? Inception is an idea that can put in someone’s subconscious mind. To do so, someone needs to go to dreams within dream.

That’s all I can say bout the storyline because I don’t want to give spoiler. I’ll write more about the story when the DVD is out for sale.

What makes this movie worth my expectation is the crazy idae of entering someone’s dream…And to make it more unbelievable is when you can create your own design of your dream…That is an awesome idea. I also like the idea of dreams within dream. The effect is also amazing, my fav is definitely when Arthur tries to fight people in free gravitation.

how much stars should i give for this movie? 5 stars! No question about it. Tho i have to remind you that if you don’t like to think while watching a movie, you might find Inception a bit boring…Fortunately I love movies that can make my brain ticks.

PS. Nolan…More Cillian Murphy PLEASE!! He is too damn cute for his own good.


  1. Hello Nov, waaah asik amat udah nonton Inception!! I’m not gonna read your review yet until after I see it myself… I’m avoiding any possible spoilers like a plague! But glad you like it and that Cillian blew your mind again, well naturally right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Ruth ๐Ÿ™‚ you haven’t watched it yet? I just asked you in twitter, have you watched it or not…because I want to know what other people think of it. I’ll wait for your thought ๐Ÿ™‚

      I watched Inception on the 1st day because I have the same feeling as you are…to PREVENT spoilers. That’s why I don’t write much in here to avoid spoilers. I will write another post about Inception after the DVD is out.

      Hehehe Inception is my 1st Cillian Murphy’s movie on cinema after I fell head over heel with him. I ‘m so happy to see his face in that big screen ๐Ÿ™‚ Too bad he doesn’t need to show much of his acting talent in there, tho you can see clearly how he turns into a spoiled brat.

      I’m going to watch this movie twice…the 1st is to watch and enjoy the movie, the 2nd is to watch and enjoy Cillian hehe

      1. Have you read my review yet? I worked all night to make sure I wrote my review when it’s still fresh in my mind. Yes, Cillian was great in there. In fact, I teared up in one of his scenes, he’s just so emotional there the it really got to me. I’ll probably see it again later when it’s on cheap theater or dvd.

        1. Just read it ๐Ÿ™‚ great review Ruth.

          I think I know which scene you are talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰ . He could have choosen any role he wants, that’s how Nolan values him, and he chose to be Fischer because he is the character he haven’t played before. I love his dedication in the art of acting.

          Hehe I will without a doubt by it’s original DVD … and write a better review ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. baru aja nonton film ini, ceritanya baru ngerti setelah dceritain. hehehe… dan ternyata keren… scoringnya bagus….

    1. whahaha telat nih Mbi…sy di tgh2 film juga dah ngerti ceritany…emang suka bgt sih ma film2 kudu mikir semacam ini.

      Hehehe emang keren bgt nih film ๐Ÿ™‚ … scoring dah pasti bgs, Hans Zimmer gitu loh.

      Tapi msh byk org Indo yg ragu2 untuk nntn film sekeren ini…sayangnya.

  3. Firstly, the cast is so perfect. One thing about Nolan is he made these supporting roles more attractive than the main role. Eames, Arthur, Fischer are awesome.

    Secondly, the story. This is the first movie (that I noticed) he write by himself. without any help from his brother. that means this movie is a real ambition of Mr. Nolan. and he executed his idea very well.

    Last but least, the music score. it gives you some chill, yeah? oh yeah that “Arthur-0-gravity” scene is definitely everyone’s favourite.

    1. I agree on the 1st one … hehe the supportings outstand the Leo’s performance.

      The music score is brilliant!! I love it. Hehe great name for that scene, do you make it up by your self?

  4. Glad you liked it Novia. Though I can hardly be surprised given your affection for Cillain, he was good in this. I wonder if he will appear in the next Batman movie?

    1. Cillian is not a guarantee I’m going to like his movie tho ๐Ÿ™‚ one of the example is The Girl With a Pearl Earing, I really don’t like it and ended up cuting the movie just to have a scene with only Cillian in it.

      Yeah…there’s been a lot of questions on that subject…But I prefer he stays out of Batman. Staying in the same character for 3 movies is such a waste of his brilliant talent. My hope is for Nolan to make a movie with Cillian as the leading role ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Me too! Although I have watched it twice at the cinema…I’m now waiting for the DVD to be released here

      PS. Can you not use chaptca Elgart? I can’t comment in your blog if that thing is attached ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        1. Thank you Elgart ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s not a problem if I’m using PC, but I often use mobilephone to go online.

          Of course I don’t mind, that’s very kind of you ๐Ÿ™‚ I like your blog too and will add your link too
