19 Minutes

It won't be 11:11 when I post this, but it is when I started writing. Make a wish.

Christopher Nolan's "Inception" was amazing. It lived up to every single expectation I had and surpassed most of them as well. In other words, it kicked cinematic butt. If and when you go see it, don't see it alone. No, it's not scary. You'll just need someone to talk to about it when it's over. 11:13. The movie was about dreams. It was fascinating. After I got home and went to bed, I thought to myself "Okay. I have to remember my dream tonight. Especially. I want to figure out if it's in any way similar to what they talked about in the movie." 11:14. Now I'm going to talk about the actors.

Leonardo "Leo" DiCaprio as Dom Cobb. He is a very privileged actor. He's had the chance to work with some of the world's best directors. 11:15. James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan.......the list goes on. He pulled off his role amazingly. 11:16.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the actor we know as Tommy from 3rd Rock From the Sun, is now much older, much more mature, and playing the type of role that we've never seen him do before. 11:17. He made my jaw drop. He was surprisingly fantastic.

Ellen Page, one of my favorite actresses, (11:18) played Ariadne, the Architecture student who gets involved with Dream-sharing and finds it captivating...much like I did. She should receive the Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. No joke. 11:19.

Tom Hardy, who I had never heard of before seeing INCEPTION, was a really good actor....and he's not too bad looking...and I tend to have a bias towards men with accents. He's british. I rest my case. 11:20. He played the "forger". In dreams, he can change his voice and appearance to fool the subjects of the dream. He was quick-witted and quite the charming character. I hope to see Hardy in larger roles in the future.


Others in the cast included Michael Caine (A Chris Nolan film regular), Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, and Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard for her role in "La Vie en Rose: The Life of Edith Piaf". 11:22. They, too, were all quite amazing.

11:23...Already? How the time flies!

Now I'm waiting for Craig Ferguson.....he is my last laugh before bed.

The laugh will be good, especially tonight. 11:24. Earlier today, I found out that one of my mom's students died in a car accident. She was a twin and I can't even imagine the pure hell her sister must be going through. I met her and her sister once. 11:25 They came over to our house during a storm because their apartment building didn't have a basement. I now remember that she talked about getting ready to graduate...she was a year away....but she didn't make it. 11:26. How tragic. That made me realize that everything could end in a split second. She died instantly from her injuries. 11:27. I would say that makes me afraid to drive, but if I never drive or ride in a car again, I won't have much of a life, will I? 11:28.....11:29......11:30......time is flying by, so we have to utilize it to the best of our abilities.

Take it away, Craig....make me laugh.
