“Fast Asleep”
If you’re a fan of Christopher Nolan and Leonardo d'caprio, go ahead and hate me. But spending two and a half hours being confused and disoriented is not my idea of a good time at the movies.
“Inception” tries hard to be something different and original. But it’s nothing more than a mash-up of the “The Matrix” with 1984’s far superior “Dreamscape”.
Not that the film doesn’t contain good ideas, and it certainly has extraordinary visuals and effects, but the plot is annoyingly hard to follow. To love this film is to simply give up trying to follow the story and just immerse yourself in the visual landscape. If that’s your cup of tea, then go for it. You won’t be disappointed.
From what I can tell, the story centers on Leonardo DiCaprio being able to somehow enter someone’s dream and plant ideas deep in their subconscious. Creating a “team” to do this only merges multiple dream states to create dreams with dreams within dreams until we never have any idea what is real and what is not.
Nolan goes to great lengths to create mesmerizing dream worlds. But humans were dreaming for millenniums before CGI was invented. My dreams don’t look like they take place in a computer! Certainly, I never heard of people dreaming in 5.1 surround stereo sound. My dreams don’t have wall-to-wall bombastic film score music! Hans Zimmer’s ridiculously loud over-the-top music is intrusive and grows annoying as the film goes on.
Since “The Wizard Of Oz” in 1939, when Dorothy’s trip to Emerald City was revealed to have all been a colorful dream, it always seemed as though you could forgive any unrealistic implausibility in a movie if it took place during a dream. “Inception” banks on the fact that, because it almost entirely takes place in a dream, it can get away with anything. OK, so I won’t criticize the many logic-defying moments. I’ll just say that I was quite bored by it all.
here is the trailer, but i'm not  guaranteed you're gonna satisfied
