18. Inception (B+)
I still like this film very much, but I don't love
it. There's piles of exposition upon exposition that slow down the movie and are probably why the run time gets a little out of hand (2 hours, 20 minutes isn't nearly as long as it could be, but I'm sure a tighter re-write could have brought the film in at a straight 2 hours).
That said, it has some of the most creative action sequences seen in a Hollywood picture since The Matrix
. It has a terrific cast. And it has an interesting concept at its core, which is more than I can say for most SF films with this sort of budget, sadly.
