Ugh, we get it already.
From the director of two good Batman movies comes a film that will obliterate your eardrums
with deafening horn noises.
When dream thief Dominic Cobb gets his toughest assignment yet,
he'll assemble a team of experts, including
this small boy who can suddenly learn to make complex dream mazes
after doodling, a chemist who is literally the worst driver
and a sidekick whose only job is to explain the plot.
"In a dream, you can cheat architecture into impossible shapes."
"Five minutes in the real world gives you an hour in the dream."
"In the dream state, your conscious defenses are lowered."
"You can't wake up from within the dream unless you die."
"Raw, infinite subconscious. Nothing is down there - except for whatever might have been left behind
by someone sharing the dream who's been trapped there before."
And yet, not even the characters in the movie can figure out what's
going on. "So what happens when we die?"
"What's a kick?" "If this is my dream why can't I control this?!"
"Wait, who's subconscious am I going into exactly?"
"I'm just trying to understand." "How could you understand?"
"You don't understand."
To get back his children, Cobb's team will have to fight anonymous dream soldiers who have no idea how to
hit anything with an automatic weapon, or duck.
A movie so complex, it requires intense concentration at every moment -
which is really difficult when this guy goes over important plot points in a heavy accent.
"My main competitor is an old man in poor health.
His son will soon inherit control of the corporation."
A supposedly original film that's actually just The Matrix,
but with creepier extras and unclear rules.
Witness Leonardo Dicaprio fight his way through any physical challenge,
but struggle to squeeze through an alley way.
Immerse yourself in the dreams of Christopher Nolan,
which apparently don't include sex, flying, or
any other things normal people dream of. A dream land where you can think of literally
any weapon, but for some reason only dream of small-to-medium
sized guns. Seriously, they couldn't dream up a tank or
Indian Seth Rogen
The cast of The Dark Knight Rises
The son from Third Rock from the Sun
and a dreidel.
If Cobb couldn't enter the country, wouldn't Michael Cain just fly the kids out to him?
