Best movie in the theater right now?

The night it opened my Facebook was flooded with status updates about how amazing the movie was.
I saw it with Leah last night.

It was one of the best movies I have ever seen. EVER.

Look, when you mix Christopher Nolan (Director of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Prestige) and Leonardo DiCaprio (Blood Diamond, The Departed and Shutter Island) you’re bound have a blockbuster on your hands.

The story is incredible and the presentation phenomenal.

Leo infiltrates dreams and learns secrets he has been hired to retrieve. Eventually he is hired to for an “inception“. Instead of removing thoughts and secrets he is challenged to place a thought in someone’s mind.

The movie leaves you wondering where the line between reality and subconscious is drawn.

Imagine if someone could actually enter your subconscious and alter it – place a thought so simple and so deep in your mind that you actually feel you came up with the idea yourself.

Incredible! The whole idea is just incredible!

In order to accomplish the missions there needs to be someone who creates the dream, an “architect”.

DiCaprio discusses the role of architect with the girl he is interviewing for the position. He makes a comment that has some strong gospel meaning.

“When you’re truly inspired, it’s almost as if you’re not creating so much as discovering something that already exists.”

“And there began to be men ainspired from heaven and sent forth…” (3 Nephi 6:20)

Inspiration comes from Heavenly Father.
He knows everything. He saw the car long before it was invented. The same goes with inventions and things being “discovered” or “invented” today.

In a much smaller way I feel like I have had similar feelings. You have probably felt it as well. Something just clicked and you weren’t creating but you were remembering.

Oooohhh – I’m excited just thinking about it.

? If you’ve seen the movie I want to know your thoughts about the ending?

If you haven’t seen the movie watch this trailer and go see the movie!

We just saw it today! LOVED IT! I kept waiting for the top to fall over….it was killing me! I wanted it to be reality, but does it really matter? He’s happy and that’s what was most important. Anywho, we really enjoyed watching it!

You forgot Titanic. haha I also loved it. I want to believe the top fell over but who knows. However, he did say that he couldn’t change his memory where he wanted to call out to them to see them again so does that mean he couldn’t see their faces at all in dreams or just in that one specifically?

Shhh… I actually liked him in Titanic too. And that Celine Dion song reminds me of every youth dance I went to growing up!!
