Husband and I, thanks to my folks, actually get to see more movies than most new parents. Inception was weird and cool, and I enjoyed, but itâ€™s long. I liked the mix of special effects and acting effects — there were some computer generating thing-a-ma-bobs, but the extras contributed to the creep factor by breaking conversations and staring at Leonardo DiCaprio at the same time. There’s a fight scene that’s very Matrix/Lionel Richie’s “Dancing on the Ceiling.” About halfway through, I looked at my watch and said â€œThis is not worth being away from the baby.â€ However, that is an impossible standard to measure a film by. Whatevs. I like calling anything remotely weird as Inception. Like â€œThat is so Inception,â€ â€œso totally Inception,â€ or just â€œInception.â€ In the movie, the characters adopt totems to help root their mind in seeing the difference between reality and dream state. After the lights went up, I told Husband my totem would be the used aluminum foil he used to sneak in his veggie burger into the movie. I am so Inception.
Anyway, itâ€™s good, itâ€™s entertaining.
