It's one of the few films that my dad and I agree on liking, which is pretty cool. If our tastes were a Venn Diagram, then the middle would be pretty slim.

After reading the thread, I have very little to say that hasn't already been said. Them's the breaks for waiting to see it. Here are random observations:
 
Let's get the ending out of the way first: everyone's obsessing about the clothes, but the faces were the much bigger deal. He couldn't recall the faces in his memory. Not only that, but the totem wobbled. It never wobbled when he was dreaming. It's totally real.

I found the part where they demonstrated how kicks work by knocking JGL out of his chair repeatedly very funny.

I think my least favorite part of the movie is when they get to the second level and JGL tells Page that "he tends to do things he says you shouldn't do," as if that was news. It had already been explicitly stated about a half dozen times before that, mostly by Page herself.

The fact that that's my least favorite part probably says a lot. I enjoyed it. I'm pretty sure this is the first movie I've seen in theaters since The Dark Knight.

The film my Dad and I both equally love is actually Clockwork. He almost made me cry, though, last time I was home when he told me about the two boring films he'd watched recently, those being The New World and The Assassination of Jesse James by GAF.

Dad.

I havent seen it for a second time yet, but my girlfriend did and said that you cant see his left hand in the final scene. She said it was driving her nuts trying to see it because its one of the things she was consciously paying attention to the second time around

There was a distinct lack of tangerine in Michael Caine's scenes.

But if it's his dream, he can place whatever parametres on his totem that he consciously or subconsciously sees fit. The totems only let you know if you're in someone else's dream

But wasn't a huge part of it that he couldn't remember their faces? That was the convincing thing for me.

You know what I thought was funny in a "okay, come on now, they only did that because it'll look cool in slo-mo" way?

 
In the opening sequence, Cobb's "kick" sends him backward into a bathtub full of water. He only needs to fall, he doesn't need to fall into water? It looked cool, but after the rest of the movie, I came back to that and decided they just did it because it looked cool.

They're holding their tangerine load for Batman 3. Shit's gonna be in IMAX.

 
Also, the whole movie's a dream, and it's the first time that I can recall that it's not a complete cop-out.

I've read that theory. Interesting. I think the most telling scene is the one in Mombasa; Very dream-like. Havent decided if I'm fully on board, but if that's the case, I'd somehow find it very satisfying

So, if the whole movie's a dream, is Dom still banging Mal when he wakes up? Because that moves my feelings from sympathy to green with jealous rage pretty quickly.

I'd be down with that theory being true as well, Basterd.
