Personally, for what it's worth, I'd put Inception on about the same level as Moon,
I guess my wording wasn't clear. I was comparing those three films to Minority Report, not Inception (which, yes, was a film I enjoyed immensely.)
My mistake. In that case, I agree with you: Minority Report is quite good, but just short of being on the same level of the films you named.

I think we can all probably agree that it's nice to see a well-made, original SF film doing well at the box office.
I'm surprised that is - but not that surprised. Nolan is a master and combining smart and popular; and Inception is clearly a shining example of that - psychological problems, high concept, bizarrely thought out ideas... and 'splosions and a heist movie plot.
Indeed. I almost wonder if in twenty years time, Chris Nolan will be on a similar level to directors like Speilberg and Kubrick. He's certainly managed to put together a damned impressive filmography after just over a decade of work.
