I haven't been this confused by a movie, since Mullholland drive. It's going to take several viewings and even more review readings to understand the movie!
It's interesting, but to me, does not entirely live up to all the hype. Don't get me wrong, its certainly worth a watch, but perhaps not a 9.6 pointer as IMDB claims it is (as of yesterday).
But you know who is a 10 pointer - Leo :) My childhood crush never fails to impress! Be it Departed, Blood Diamond, Revlutionary Road, Aviator, Catch me if you can, Shutter Island or the evergreen romantic Titanic :)
Coming back to the movie - it introduces a new concept, perhaps the first major/noticeable one after Matrix. Its about sharing a dream space. Very interesting concept, equally well presented.
I dont think too many spoilers are possible for this one - because any spoiler would require so much explanation!!! :) But still, here's a small one:
Some dialogues were just too funny:
- Cobb (Leo) to Eames when he is gambling with only 2 chips left in hand "Rub them all you want, but they are not going to breed"
- Arthur to Ariadne when people who are Robert's subconscience start staring at Arthur, suspecting him of being an intruder "Kiss me now". They kiss. And then Ellen says "They are still staring!". Arthur says "It was worth a shot"

Didn't I mention in my previous post that I am a sucker for Disney. Well add Pixar to that list.
Since Toy Story has been released in 3D, Jatin was dying to watch it. And well, it being Toy Story, I was also dying to watch it. It turned out to be even better than what we expected :)
All the Toy story's are so warm, humorous and entertaining. This one is no different.
Update: Make sure you watch the end credits!
There are 2 high points in the movie:
- Spanish Buzz : Oh can the guy move! And my my how cool is the romance between Jessie and spanish Buzz - perhaps this bit was inspired from Kites... heheheh
- Barbie and Ken : Ooooo how she chooses to torture Ken by ripping off his clothes! hahahahah! Barbie, you go girl!

I am a sucker for arabian-nights style romance stories... And also a sucker for Disney :)
So there - this one automatically became a must-watch!
It has a slightly brain-dead, but fast paced script, combined with AWESOME visuals. So, its not something everyone would like.
But I did, I soo did :)
Ok, it is ridiculously predictable who the real villain is. I mean, anyone who has watched enough of Coupling, knows Jeff cannot be the villain, right? :)
I love the fact that the movie showed all possible deaths, but in the end everything was fine and dandy!
