Let's All Go To The Movies!
My son Kevin wanted to see the movie "Inception" this past week and he asked me to join him. Of course I went, life goes by so fast and sometimes these kind of invitations don't come around that often.
The movie (Inception) stars Leonardo Dicaprio, Ellen Page (Juno) and Michael Caine.
I confess, I was completely confused from the very beginning, I thought, OH GOD I have to make it through 2 1/2 hours of this.
As I started to relax and just accept the fact that my middle aged brain was going to be confused for a while, the movie started to pull me in. It seems to be one of those films, like Blade Runner, or maybe even 2001 A Space Odyssey, that will just keep replaying in your head, long after the movie is over.
Inception is a story about what it might be like to be able to see into the
multi-layered dreams and nightmares of the central characters.
There is a story line that runs through and seems to pull it all together.
I won't be a spoiler here and tell you anymore of the details. So if this sounds like something that you might enjoy, embrace it, cause it's a wild trip that Kevin and I thoroughly enjoyed. I will see it again,(on video next time) just so I can grasp more of the intricate details that honestly, just flew over my head.
I will be away from blogging for the next week or so, summer is moving fast and I need to get out and enjoy more of it. My daughter is here for her birthday and I'm sure we'll be able to find a few things to keep us busy.
Take care everyone.
