Going out for a movie

For the first time in ages I went out to a movie theatre to see a movie on Saturday night. This theatre has been renovated, too, with seats that rock back and armrests that raise. They've streamlined their ticket and concession lines, too. It was quite a pleasant experience for a Saturday night.

I went with a friend of mine to see Inception. Even thought it was a long movie it didn't feel long because so much was happening. The premise of the movie is that people can create a dream world and insert that world into another person's dream. The person receiving the world populates the world with characters, or projections, molded out of their subconscious.

Of course no one would use this kind of technology for good, would they? No, our protagonist is a thief, and uses the technology to extract information from the dreamer. In the movie, his team attempt to insert a thought into the dreamer, something that's obviously more dangerous.

Conceptually, this was a great movie; who doesn't love the idea of being able to manipulate dreams? I have lots of epic dreams that feel very real and that I find interesting. I'd talk about them more but most people aren't interested in other people's dreams.

this was definitely an interesting, action-filled movie and one that I'd recommend. If you can see it in the theatre, so much the better.
