The inception

Did you like the movie? I watched it with my dad. He didn't like it because Leonardo Di Caprio was in the movie. I sort of liked it but Leo ruined it for me as well.

Good effects, but it should've been simpler and shorter, it's a bit of a bloated mess. I'm surprised it did so well with it's way-out sci-fi storyline.

Why the hating on DiCaprio?

This was one of the best science fiction films ever made, Leo was great in it.

I kind of get it. Leo is so hard to accept as many of the characters he's assigned to play. To me, he's a boy with a big head, who looks like a teen dressed up like a grown man, but never very convincingly.

I dont' understand why people think he's such a great actor. He isn't even a good one.

I think of him more as a ho-hum actor, than a good or bad one.

I preferred Leo in "The J. Edgar"

Not a fan of Inception. I couldn't get into it.

Like most of Nolan's films, it's a great big incoherent mess.

But I liked it anyway, because it's looks great and it's really wierd, and some of the dreamscapes really seemed dreamlike.

R11, Then why doesn't Nolan get a better editor?

I liked it. It wasn't as deep as some people seemed to think it was though. Leo was fine in it. He's not my favorite actor but he's good at what he does. He was wonderful in What's Eating Gilbert Grape. I agree that for years he didn't look much like a man, but now he's starting to age.

DiCaprio is a barely adequate actor whose performances are highly labored (all those looks of "brooding intensity" are ham-fisted efforts to instill gravitas at every fucking turn.)

He deserves some credit, however, for making an effort to pick interesting films and to (mostly) avoid truly dreadful ones. Those good choices have carried his career which began with some promise but has been middling at best since his Titanic days.

Inception was an interesting idea, richly executed in terms of visuals, but the plot and direction and DiCaprio's acting pulled it down to something very forgettable.

It's "Inception", not "The inception". And it, and Leo, are both quite good.

what you dont realize is that dream burglars falsely implanted that memory into your head. you were never at the movies with your father. ask yourself, how did you get there?

I felt it thought itself way smarter than it actually was and therefore kinda gave me a case of the "mehs". And it has 2 of my least favorite actors. Leo and that douchey Joseph Gordon whatever.

At least DiCaprio was better in this than in Shutter Island, where he basically just covered a collection of tics in a sheen of sweat and cruised on that for the duration.

I liked it visually and Cillian Murphy was in it, as he is in most (or all) Nolan films. Cillian is enough reason for me to watch.
