    • Ooooooh yes. That fight scene was insane. I truly adore the film. Not sure if you read my Top Films of the Decade (so far) posts, but Inception had a pretty prominent spot.

  1. I will always remember how powerful a moment it was when Cobb finally wakes up on the plane. That still gives me goosebumps now just with the mere mention of it. You’re so right thiugh, there are far too many great shots from this flick to fit into one single post 😉

    • Man, let me be honest. I get misty every single time I watch that ending. I have seen it so many times and it really gets to me. The perfect camera work and editing. And the phenomenal music from Zimmer. LOVE IT.

      • It’s really one of the great science fiction thrillers of this century. I absolutely love it too, and why it’s not in my DVD collection yet is inexcusable.

  2. Easily one of my favorite films ever and always fun to watch. Especially with the way the ensemble works together and how Ellen Page’s character is sort of the film’s Greek Chorus when she asks “who’s head are we going into?” Plus, who cannot enjoy the look she had after JGL kissed her?

    • So good. The #1 movie from my Decade series I recently did. It is one of those rare films I can watch over and over again. A masterpiece. And is it this way with you – I can literally visualize so many tremendous sequences from the film. They are forever carved in my mind.

  3. Such a great movie, this one is, with so many great shots. The bending street is just an amazing cinematic moment and the spinning top is iconic. Great post.

    • It is truly brilliant filmmaking. I remember seeing it in the theater. When the credits began to scroll I sat in utter silence. Pretty overwhelmed. So good.

  4. I have too much love for this movie, so obviously I loved this post! One of my absolute favourite scenes from the movie is when he is standing in that room and the water starts exploding through the walls. Goosebumps. Then again, there was just so much in this movie that was amazing. Also loved that zero gravity fight, it was phenomenally crafted!

    • Oh you’re 100% right. That scene has such an effect on me. Is he back with his kids? Is he lost in limbo? The hopeful father in me has his opinion! 🙂

    • Same here bro. Totally blown away. I sat in my seat for a few minutes once the credits scrolled. Processing and collecting myself. It had a pretty strong effect on me. Not sure if you followed my Best of the Decade (so far) series but Inception had a pretty strong showing.

  5. I love this movie so much! I think I saw it 2 or 3 times in theaters, it’s easily one of my all time favs.

  6. I just listened to the soundtrack last night Keith! This movie is an eye and ear candy for sure. LOVE the images you featured here.
