Visionary filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Dark Knight) writes and directs this psychological sci-fi action film about a thief who possesses the power to enter into the dreams of others. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) doesn't steal things, he steals ideas. By projecting himself deep into the subconscious of his targets, he can glean information that even the best computer hackers can't get to. In the world of corporate espionage, Cobb is the ultimate weapon. But even weapons have their weakness, and when Cobb loses everything, he's forced to embark on one final mission in a desperate quest for redemption. This time, Cobb won't be harvesting an idea, but sowing one. Should he and his team of specialists succeed, they will have discovered a new frontier in the art of psychic espionage. They've planned everything to perfection, and they have all the tools to get the job done. Their mission is complicated, however, by the sudden appearance of a malevolent foe that seems to know exactly what they're up to, and precisely how to stop them. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Howdy Couchers! Welcome to the August 24th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes where we post about a movie each week. This Tuesday, we will feature new movies or films that you have seen, movies that were just released and you found worth watching.
This week's theme: Something New, and I just realized that the theme is the same as my previous post's title. Lol!
Anyway, I am a bit excited to post today's entry for a number of reasons:
1. I finally managed to watch a film in the cinemas.
2. This is the first movie that Hubby and I watched here in Germany.
3. The movie was great and left me with a lot of mind-boggling questions.
I was rooting for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse as my entry but we had to forego watching it because we opted to watch the fireworks display instead. I guess I'll have to wait for it to come out in DVD so that I can watch it in the original English version.
So, on to my entry. My pick for this week is Inception. It is quite a movie and I enjoyed it.
Here's the movie trailer:
