And the dream time dilation is not a real thing, dreams actually occur in real time, and the entire premise of the movie relies on that conceit. So those were always in the back of my mind.

No, it didn't.

Most studies show that when REM dreamers are awakened 5-15 minutes after the beginning of REM and asked to decide on the basis of the duration of the events in their dreams how long they had been dreaming, almost 90% of the time the subjects answered correctly between 5-15 minutes.
