i doubt it, it would only ruin the first if there was anyway. it took 8 years to write this one, so i wouldnt expect it anytime soon.

i think they're were making the point that reality is relative and even the "real world" isn't necessarily reality and we might be in our own dream world. the film gives you that idea and it grows in your mind like what leonardo dicaprios character says at the beginning.

many people told me this is a good movie, decide to watch it this weekend

I couldn't wait for it to end. It's clear that a lot of thought went into it and the net result = layers of dreams working on exponential time frames, but it did seem to draaaaaaaaaaaaag on a bit. I kept thinking 'I should've seen Knight & Day instead!'

Cobbs original totem was that if he could see his kids faces, which he did at the end. Just thought i'd add some more confusion into the mix.

my theory was that it was stilll a dream...the old fella in the lecture room is mol's daddy and has set cobb up to find out if he really did kill mol, which he admitted to in the last layer in the end. he is then trapped in a deep sleep as a punishment.
why i reckon he is still dreaming.....because the kids are in the SAME position, nothing seems to have changed, cobb himself said his dreams were shallow and no depth to them...there was no depth here to what he remembered.


btw i missed the first 5 minutes and was enjoying my popcorm quite a bit....so maybe i got some these rules confused...but thats what i think!

Knight & Day was pretty bad and very very cheesy! Inception is a fantastic movie.

The kids in the final scene were older/bigger. It wasn't the same scene from earlier in the movie. (It was mentioned in last months empire)

they had different shoes on as well so it was a different scene. another theory is that michael caines character (forget his name) is the mastermind as he did teach cobb in the first plac and cobb is actually dreaming everything. there are a few quotes that hint this like when caine says "you need to come back to reality", and in the room full of sleeping people he says "they come here to wake up, you of all people should know that".
