'Inception' Is Another Amazing Achievement From Christopher Nolan

2010 was the start of a new decade, and many film enthusiasts were treated to a majority of incredible movies; like 'Black Swan', 'Toy Story 3', 'Scott Pilgrim vs. The World', 'Kick Ass', 'Blue Valentine', 'The Social Network', and 'Shutter Island' - just to name a few.
After coming off the massive success of 'The Dark Knight' in 2008, Christopher Nolan wrote and directed another movie titled 'Inception'. At this time, Nolan was a big name in the film industry and to moviegoers alike. With 'Inception' around the corner, audiences kept their eye on it. The movie also has a very intriguing plot - much like all of his films - having to do with going into people’s dreams.
To this day, people still talk about Inception; about the story, the meaning behind it all, the mind blowing practical effects, and of course, the (famous) ending. When watching this movie, It is agreeable to say that this movie is incredible. From the opening scene Nolan takes you in the middle of this imaginary journey with our main group of characters.
Throughout the 2 hour and 28 minute runtime, you hooked to the screen. It's so shocking and creative to see how this whole movie unfolds. The first 20 to 30 minutes may be a little bit difficult to understand , but eventually you will get the gist.
The aspects that help Inception be what it has been all these years are its effects, its memorable sequences, and last but never the least, its story. Nolan always comes up with such impressive stories; which is why he is the best filmmaker working today. There are some sequences that are so breathtaking that it's a shame that Nolan didn't shoot any of the scenes in IMAX; like he did with The Dark Knight. Some of the shots are so brilliant, you can picture them in full 1.43:1.
The movie also makes you ask some questions about the characters, their purpose in the story, what the whole movie really means, and what happens after. That is really what makes Inception a film that has stuck with fans for so long.
Overall, Inception is such an outstanding film, and is yet another entry in Christopher Nolan’s filmography that will never be forgotten.
