I assume if you are reading a thread titled "Inception" you have seen Inception.DO IT. SEE IT NOW.
Everyone in my theater was literally on the edge of their seats. It was amazing.
Did anyone else threaten to kill someone if they didn't get to see the kid's faces?
If you think about it from a logical standpoint, as according to the rules of the movie, it's not really possible for it to still be a dream
Actually... now that I think about it a bit more, the last chunk of the movie has some pretty big holes in the logic. Doesn't make it any less enjoyable, but they do stand out if you think about them.
1) How does level 4 == Limbo?2) Getting to Limbo by just falling asleep vs. dying.

Is this the Dreamscape remake/re-imagining?
If you think about it from a logical standpoint, as according to the rules of the movie, it's not really possible for it to still be a dreamWhy not?My first edit was kind of trying to rephrase this. The ending could very well be a dream still, but the real question is, whose dream is it?And yeah, most of my problems with the lower levels of the dream are the same ones Timo pointed out. One of the things that the movie doesn't explain very well is the concept of whether the dreams act like hive minds or not. There is a very small scene showing some people who do share the same dream, but does that always apply? It was my assumption, based on Ariadne's first experience as an architect, that one person is having the actual dream, and the other people in the dream are directly affecting it. So, if you go on that, then the entire inception dream sequence takes place in the mind of Fischer.
Then you have the whole limbo section, where Fischer and Saito both die in the base, and Cobb and Ariadne dive in deeper to find them. Why does limbo automatically default to the world that the Cobbs built together?
Clearly the movie was not as meticulously self-consistent as say, The Sixth Sense.
No, but it did not affect my enjoyment of it.
