    No spoilers here.

    I just came back from watching Inception.

    In my opinion it is an epic movie simply because you think you know what's going on, but in reality, you could have been wrong the whole time.

    The ending was solid without a doubt. It wasn't a set ending that resolved the whole story. But neither was it too open ended that left millions of possibilities to be questioned. The ending was either one path or another, and you could "choose" which one you want to believe.

    Also, the film isn't exactly a "mindfuck" the whole time. You know what is going on, but the ending just slaps you and proves you wrong. That's where the mindfuck comes in because the whole thing seems like a paradox.

    The movie talks about dreams, believing, paradoxes, and knowing the difference between fantasy and reality, and this is exactly what the person watching the movie is doing. You think you know what is going on, but in reality, you could be completely wrong.

    I highly recommend this film. There were a lot of things going on, so it's kind of hard to keep up.

    I still think The Usual Suspects tops this one. If you haven't seen it, do it now. That film has one hell of an ending that mindfucks you 10x more than Inception. That's all I'll say.

    So what did you guys think?

    Its an EPIC movie...one of the best I've ever seen. Nolan once again did an awesome job with the story & direction...Imma gonna watch it again for sure!

    @ariffin246: they went to 3 levels but if you take the ending that other way, they just might have gone four or may be more...

    I thought it was great too

    towards the end I was getting bit tired of the whole movie - then bam it came to the end - so they must have keyed in on that in their test screenings

    the reason was that the concept of the film was in a way complicated.

    the only thing I didnt like - the new girl that came in the architect - she is there 1-2 days and all of a sudden she knows everything - yet people who have been doing it for a while seemed little clueless ?

    anyway it was a great movie and probably one of those movies that are even better the 2nd time around.

    Is it that good?

    Would you say better than the Dark Knight?

    The best movies of this century are imo, The Dark Knight and Lord of the Rings (The complete triology)

    In your opinion can this top Lord of the Rings?

    The funny thing is that when the scene cut to black in the end, the audience went "ooooohhhhh!! hahahaha"

    Did anyone else witness that in the theater?
