Any fans of the movie "Inception"? How has it held up for you after 5 years?

I liked it when it came out. I haven't watched it in a long time though...need to give her a re-watch.

I didn't think it was very good, the film had too many plot holes for me to overlook, and the action scenes had no meaning to them since everything took place in a dream, and none of the characters were really interesting or memorable(Ellen Page's character is little more then an exposition device who only exists in order to explain the plot).

I liked Inception. More than any other popular film of recent memory, it tackles the intersection between reality and fantasy that has been a part of the cinema from its very beginning. Of course, you don't need to have a great knowledge of film theories about fantasy vs. reality in order to enjoy the film. I had a good time with it.

Too heavy on an ADD sense of montage with few scenes lasting more than a minute or so and almost every scene being connected by music which never stops playing, as if it's a 2.5 hour trailer. The dream worlds aren't dreamy or fantastical at all, just the most generic action movie fodder anyone could come up with. Leo Dicaprio doesn't seem to know what's going on half the time. The movie has one interesting scene, with JGL in the zero-G hallway, which doesn't happen until 100 minutes into the movie and is over pretty quick. The rest is generic and pretty meaningless noise that spends way too much time on exposition (taking the audience to be stupid).
