Inception (2010)

I've already got quite a few movies still to watch, but when I've got through my backlog of DVDs that I haven't watched yet, an Inception DVD is going to be high on the list of movies I want to get. I didn't get round to watching it at the cinema, which was a bit of a shame, but since it's been so well reported on (including by people whose opinion I actually trust! :-D), it's got a whopping average rating of 9.0 on IMDB [placing it at #6 in their Top 250 movies list], and has a fantastic cast list (I've long admired Leonardo DiCaprio's acting talents and it also features Michael Caine and Tom Berenger among others). I admit that I've never taken to Ellen Page, but to be fair I haven't seen her in much.

The thing that really draws me to this movie though is that it's got a reputation for being intelligent science fiction - something of a rarity in these days of mindless blockbusters where popularity is counted in the number of explosions (yes Michael Bay, I'm talking about you).  Christopher Nolan seems to be a Director who isn't afraid to try new things - I sometimes think he's guilty of overkill (i.e. Batman Begins), but he's also capable of creating a movie that grips you by the seat of the pants and won't let go (i.e. Dark Knight).  The ability to enter dream worlds is a fascinating concept; I look forward very much to seeing what Nolan has done with the idea.
