Who's seen it? I thought it was absolutely amazing, completely better than Inception.

If you're serious, then this will be a must see as I am a HUGE Inception fan. Can you give a bit more detail without plot spoilers.

That's really, really hard to do, actually.

Here...

But it's so much more than what you see. You see, in that trailer, probably 1/100th of the gazillions of different fractals that branch out from that storyline, yet they all somehow beautifully reconnect and come together at the end. It's mindblowing.

I've seen the trailers and it looks darn good. I'll take your word for it and see it soon in that case.

Saw it. Liked it better than Inception. Only thing I don't like is that people will take it seriously. They will actually believe in angels, and divine intervention, and fate. Fantastic movie though.

Better than Inception? Can it really be compared to Inception? I'm asking sincerely. What gives this movie the right to be compared to Inception? Are they they same idea or concept?

Someone, please elaborate.

If anyone wants to read the original Philip [edited] short story the movie is loosely based on, see here:

Inception was fine, though I consider it sort of a mishmash of some earlier movies.

On that note, if you've never seen it, check out eXistenZ:

This doesn't give me any reason why they are comparable.
Watchmen is an amazing movie, and so is Toy Story 3, but I would never compare them because they are so drastically different.

Let me give that one a try...
Watchmen- bad
Toy Story 3- Good

see how easy that was?

One could say that they both have a story to do with the meaning of reality.
