    The charts are neat looking, but a normal person would only need them if they were making dinner while watching it from the other room.

    And when I walked out of the theater, I thought it ended at just the right spot because they could have gone another 20 minutes like Primer did and just leave you in total disorientation. I think if a major movie tried to go out like Primer did, you'd be causing riots in the streets.

    I thought she didn't look bad...that dress seemed a bit inappropriate for where she was though.

    I don't think this has been posted here yet- some observant viewer thinks he's worked out [link=http://revolvingdoorproject.net/2010/07/23/inception-what-happened-at-the-end/]Cobb's true totem[/link].

    But if the ring exists (on his hand) only in the dream world, then it can't be a totem. The top and Juno's chess piece existed in the real world; the ring obviously wasn't on Leo's person. I think the wedding ring just meant that he hadn't gotten over his wife and that's one of the ways in which it manifested. Since he had gotten over her and the guilt by the end, it still could easily be a dream.

    ...Now I'm biting my tongue to keep from complaining about the nonsensical logic of the totems.

    In the sequel she'll turn up and tell Cobb to look at the children's faces...>

    Ahhh, of course, I was wondering why all that "film cut" experiences in the dream world in Inception were so familiar... :D

    What's so illogical about the totems?

    It's simply to show them they are not in someone else's dream. Not to show they are not dreaming at all. The only reason the top keeps spinning in the dream world is because spinning the top was the inception. The simple idea planted in his wife's head that the world was not real. Ofcourse it's quite a mind bender and I've only seen it once.

    Great flick! What I loved the most is the way Nolan keeps you on your toes throughout the movie. Once a concept is understood he drops out the floor to give you another. Every time a plan is established things immediately go awry. I think Nolan has really become a master of his craft. I don't need Batman 3 to blow Dark Knight out of the water, but Inception goes to show he's becoming more capable with every film.

    Loved the MC Escher parts as well. ;)

    Except his wedding ring would have disappeared in the dream after he let go the guilt of his wife's death, so it doesn't help anything.

    Yeah I realised that too. And also, having seen the film again, he explicitly says "in my dreams, we're still together". So it's not much of an eagle-eyed catch after all, it's just a logical consequence of something Cobb states aloud.

    Unless he happens to still be wearing his ring when he visits old Saito...

    My initial reaction to the ending is that when Cobb wakes up on the plane he is not in reality. The architect told him not to get lost and he did.

    However, I do like the idea that Mal was right and Cobb was in a dream world the entire time and that makes the ending rather bitter sweet as he is going to be happy where he is but he is indeed dreaming.

    I do not think for a moment that the top at the end eventually fell, as the shot of the kids is the same as it was through the rest of the film just with the added moment where they turn and greet him. This does not effect the reality of the film, his memory of that moment could simply be getting projected to fill it in at the end of the film.

    Anyway, GREAT movie. I was almost gonna go see predators a 2nd time but Femi MADE me go see Inception.

    He is wearing the ring when he visits old Saito. I noticed that on my second viewing, but I couldn't tell if he is wearing a ring or not in the movie's final sequence.

    Good call VadersLament, I also thought they looked too young. It seemed to me that going on the run, hooking up with all these dream theifs and doing all these jobs must have happened over the span of a few years at least. I also got the feeling his daughter sounded older on the phone.
