Your Mind Is the Scene of the crime....


Inception~Movie Review
Certificate: 15
Starring: Leonardo Di Caprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Micheal Caine.
Release Date: 6th December 2010

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved.

Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one.

If they 
succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.


As this film is coming out onto DVD and Blu-ray very soon, I thought I would make this film my first review on blogger for film. I have to say when I first watched one of Christopher Nolan's films 'Batman Begins' I was amazed by how brilliantly he had created a batman film that looked way ahead of its time, and then again with 'Memento' and of course 'The Dark Knight'. Inception however, has to be by far my favourite film ever, the way in which it was filmed was simply mind-blowing, the slow motion was just incredible, making the time passing by seem more realistic as they hurled themselves within the dream. The special effects in the car crash scene was my favourite scene out of the whole film, as when the dream begins to collapse in its three scenarios, you keep getting drawn back and forth between different worlds that the architect has created. The acting was very well received by all parties of the film, even young actress Ellen Page (Juno) played her part perfectly. The imagination and creativity used to make this film become a reality was outstanding and if any film deserves to win Oscars it's definitely for this great film. It is a must see but if you have the need for the toilet or a snack definitely pause the film because if you don't you wont have a clue what's going on!

Hush Hush ~ Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush Hush, was such an amazing book, it kept me hooked from start to finish. Hush Hush is about a teenage girl Nora Grey, who falls for a pretty damn good looking guy named Patch. Patch is pretty mysterious guy who seems to be stalking poor Nora, as weird things start to occur in Nora's life, it only seems reasonable for her not to trust Patch (mainly due to stalker-ish behaviour). The book is a whirlwind of events which constantly keeps you on edge, it was so hard to put this book down, not even joking! Looking forward to reading Fitzpatrick's sequel Crescendo this week, hopefully it will live up to all expectations, will let you all know with another short review shortly!
