'Inception'? More like 'Mess With My Head-tion'

Thanks, Warner Bros.

I'm a big fan of director Christopher Nolan. I'm a big fan of Leonardo DiCaprio (blame Baz Luhrman's "Romeo and Juliet"). And I'm a big fan of movies that screw with your mind until you barely know what's what. Color me a masochist. It's no surprise that I'm now a big fan of "Inception," Nolan's much anticipated film that opened this weekend with $60.4 million made at the box office.

Apparently I wasn't the only one looking forward to the flick ...

While the plot did get a little convoluted at times — trying hard to keep up with what's a dream, what's reality, is this a dream within a dream within a dream — it was more of a pleasure to be treated as an intelligent movie-goer again who actually had to work a tad to understand what was going on.

Don't get me wrong, I love a good rom-com like the next gal, but how many recycled storylines with predictable outcomes can one person take in a year? Sorry, Sandra Bullock.

All in all, "Inception" was visually remarkable, the acting was fantastic, the story was original and captivating and I'm just a huge fangirl that is considering paying $14.50 again to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt do an upside-down "Matrix"-esque fight scene. Trust me, that was worth the ticket price alone.
