    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers."

inception (2010).

12 34 5inception is christopher nolan’s 2010 action adventure starring leonardo dicaprio, joseph gordon-levitt, tom hardy, and slew of others including *e*’s favorite, marion cotillard.

cobb (dicaprio) is the best extraction thief in the game with the ability to steal valuable secrets and important details deep within the subconscious of a victim while they sleep and dream. this skill has both made cobb a fugitive and given him a second chance to obtain his life and family back.

in the grand scheme of things, there is nothing new here: the protagonist has a great skill (extraction) and needs one last big heist to win back everything he once lost. i wish hollywood would come up with a new way to tell a story instead of rehashing the same formulaic plot line again and again …

even though nolan’s method is derivative, the idea of extraction is a great medium of mystery. the idea that someone can obtain the truth or information from someone else while they are in a state of hypnosis or dream (supposedly when the brain is at its most vulnerable state) has been around for years. in fact, hypnosis has been used by agencies all around the world to try to break into the minds of criminals and spies for years, but to date there is no scientific proof to support this. the unfortunate truth is that facts and information is always clouded by a persons feelings and emotions, the two cannot be separated and so truth is never objective but rather subjective. so it is impossible to find out what really is truth but rather how someone feels about what they know (neat right?).

the story is fantastic, full of action and colorful dialogue. each actor does a tremendous job to escalate and charge the story forward.

nolan did an amazing job with this film and i never pass up an opportunity to watch it!
