Recently, the new film “The Revenant” has been raking in some real money and getting some major Oscar buzz. Two of the movie’s biggest stars were nominated for Oscars. Those two stars are Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy. However, this was not the first time these two shared the screen together. Back in 2010, about 6 years ago, DiCaprio and Hardy starred in “Inception.” This movie blew many people away and really put director Christopher Nolan on the map.

“Inception” stars not only the two mentioned above┬ábut a bunch of other major stars as well, including Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, and Cillian Murphy. They all do a great job, but some shine more than others.

Gordon-Levitt, who was mostly known for his role in “(500) Days of Summer” and for playing Tommy Solomon in the show “3rd Rock from the Sun,” really impresses as the cool and collected Arthur. One of the best moments in the whole movie comes from him during a fight in a hotel. The camera spins around Gordon-Levitt as he dukes it out with another guy in zero-gravity.

The film’s plot surrounds DiCaprio’s character Cobb. It begins with a cool sequence that showcases the film’s most unique aspect, the idea of going into someone else’s dream. After some interesting explanation of how this shared dreaming works, Cobb is offered a deal from a powerful businessman. He has to go into the dream of the businessman’s competitor and try to get him to break up his company. Only thing is, Cobb has to make this guy think he came up with the idea. If Cobb does this then the businessman can clear Cobb of his criminal record and he can go home and visit his kids.

Of course, Cobb takes the deal, and he heads off to make his team which consists of Arthur, Ariadne (Page), Eames (Hardy), Yusuf (Dileep Rao), and the powerful businessman, himself, Saito (Ken Watanabe). Each of these characters is very different and very interesting. Rao and Hardy provide some well-needed comic relief.

The movie is simply put, fantastic, and it really makes you think. It especially helps that it has an unclear ending where the viewer can decide what they believe to be the truth.

The very best aspects of the film are its screenplay and its cinematography. In fact, this movie was nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars, and it won for Best Cinematography. Not only that but it also won for Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, and Best Visual Effects.

This movie is one of those movies that should be seen by everyone. In fact, most people have already. If, for whatever reason, you have not gotten around to seeing it yet, do yourself a favor and set aside 2 hours to watch “Inception.”
